Today’s Topic is sky broadband shield, which is a UK-based company. Who deals in Tv packages, phone packages and also started to provide broadband facilities. I am already a Sky customer, and I use its broadband, Tv, and phone facility. My main motive to write this post is to share some of the problems that I have faced and How I have resolved them.
It’s been the past month I haven’t been getting any speed. What they said is funny that you must have a big house. That’s why you are not getting the rate accurately, but I live in a small house.
It’s not like I Live in a massive house so that one room goona get the high speed and not the other rooms. My room is just below the downstairs, which is why I am getting a decent rate now.
What is the Sky broadband shield?
Sky Broadband Shield is a way to protect your router from harmful viruses or block malware. If you are not aware of this dangerous malware, they will enter your phone, device, tablets, and damage your device.
In such a case, we use the shield for our broadband to protect ourselves from the online world. You must be very careful while browsing over the internet as online safety should be the priority for all the people who do online business or who depend on the internet.
As a result, the speed that I am getting is between 50 and 70. I am also going to provide a screenshot below. A few months before, when I order the sky broadband shield, the minimum speed I’d get will be 51, then call it 50, and the average will be around 76.
I figured that it had to do with the weather lately because of poor weather, as it was windy. Even after that, it doesn’t work correctly, and I don’t want to wait for a minute when I’m about to play games.
I contacted them, and they offered me a choice. They said they might update my kit, but obviously, I don’t want to do that because I didn’t get the speed from my regular bundle.
