Sky Connect Compensation Policy

If you experience issues with your Sky Connect service you may be eligible for compensation.


Delayed start of serviceMissed appointmentTotal loss of serviceBroadband speed lower than contract


We promise to start a new broadband or voice service, on a particular date, but fail to do so.

A Sky or Openreach engineer doesn’t turn up for a scheduled appointment, or the visit is cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice.

Either your broadband or voice service has stopped working and it’s not fully fixed after two full calendar days.

The download speed delivered to your router is below the minimum guaranteed download speed stated in your Contract Summary and this can’t be resolved within 30 days of you reporting the fault to us.

What we offer

Once validated, we’ll give you £5 for each calendar day of delay, including the missed start date.

Once validated, we’ll give you £25 for each missed appointment.

Once validated, we’ll give you £8 for each calendar day that the service is not repaired. This can be paid after two full calendar days of outage.

Once verified, you can cancel your contract without any early termination charges.
