That’s fast enough to download a full HD movie in under three minutes but it’s nowhere near as quick as Virgin and BT’s best broadband.
These two telecoms firms are now offering 1Gbps services which, if Sky’s top speed is true, will be around four times faster.
This ultimate internet connection is being rolled out across the UK with Virgin already offering ultrafast speeds in areas including Southampton, Reading, Greater Manchester and across the West Midland.
Meanwhile, BT is offering its Full Fibre 1000 in areas including Belfast, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Leeds, London and Manchester.
Admittedly, gigabit broadband is still in its infancy and it is pretty pricey. Costs for these services start from £59.99 for BT customers and £62 if Virgin is your chosen supplier.
