Sky unveils WiFi 6-based WiFi Max for broadband customers

sky WiFi Max 2Pay TV and broadband provider Sky UK has unveiled WiFi Max, which the operator describes as its most powerful WiFi package yet.

Sky is supplying its new Max Hub, which uses WiFi 6 technology, as an add-on offering for new and existing Sky Broadband customers from £10 per month.

The offering comes with a WiFi Guarantee of up to 25Mbps for those with the Sky Ultrafast package and above, meaning customers will be able to stream in Ultra HD, game and work in every room, or get their money back, according to Sky. If customers take Sky Broadband Superfast, the guarantee is 10Mbps.

WiFi Max, available to new and existing customers, must be combined with a Sky Broadband package.

Existing customers with Sky Q won’t be able to purchase WiFi max until later this year.

Sky says that the Max Hub uses intelligent cloud optimisation to give users the best and smoothest connection yet, adapting and evolving the flow of traffic to each device, offering stronger and more reliable WiFi coverage wherever customers are at home.

Sky Stream and Sky Glass also use WiFi 6 technology to enable a smooth entertainment streaming experience.

All connected devices are monitored in real time to alert customers to security threats as they happen via the MySky App. Devices can be organised on the MySky App, and WiFi access to individual devices instantly paused with the tap of a button, according to the operator.

Up to three free Max Pods are available that can, if required, extend WiFi coverage. WiFi Max customers also get access to WiFi engineer visits where needed.

Amber Pine, managing director, broadband and connectivity, Sky Broadband, said: “A modern, busy household needs WiFi to be more powerful and more reliable than ever, so customers can stream, game, or use multiple devices at once without any hassle. With WiFi Max’s speed guarantee of up to 25mps in every room, customers can relax knowing time online will be seamless, safe and without stress.”
