Active Sky Broadband
Sky Broadband will need to be up and running first, before you can buy and use the Sky Wireless Booster within the home.
Our Sky Wireless Booster helps extend your Wi-Fi signal even further. It's great for that room in your home where your broadband signal doesn't quite reach - and it means Sky TV customers can watch TV on Sky Go there too.
Sky Broadband must be active before you can buy a Booster.
Your home environment may affect the range of your Wi-Fi signal.
for all Sky Broadband customers
Active Sky Broadband
Sky Broadband will need to be up and running first, before you can buy and use the Sky Wireless Booster within the home.
The Sky Wireless Booster is designed to work best with the Sky Hub or any Wireless 'N' router. If you don't have either, we recommend upgrading to the Sky Hub first.
The Sky Hub and Sky Wireless Booster broadcast and extend Wi-Fi signals around the home so you can connect your devices and get online. These two pieces of kit use the same Wi-Fi channels in the home and therefore share the same available bandwidth across all your devices.
Some homes have a Wi-Fi blackspot. This is an area of a home where the Wi-Fi signal does not reach. A Sky Wireless Booster can help eliminate that blackspot.
As your Sky Hub and Sky Wireless Booster are sharing Wi-Fi channels, you will find that in a non-blackspot area close to your Sky Wireless Booster, your broadband speeds are slower.
No, the booster will use some of the available bandwidth to provide a signal in the blackspot.
No, you only need to setup it up just the once. You can then switch off and move it around if required to find the best location and switch on only when required. This will prevent potential speed degradation and help save energy.
The Sky Wireless Booster is designed to work best with the Sky Hub and other Sky Wireless 'N' routers. If you need help identifying your router, please see our Sky Wireless Booster FAQs.
