It's worth going over the information on the Sky Help page before you choose to contact Sky from the bottom of the page. That is if a Sky contact number is available, because on some Sky Help pages there is no option to speak with a human - by phone or live chat.
If you are set on speaking to a human when you contact Sky, be prepared to wait. According to Ofcom they are the fifth-slowest of the major providers in terms of call waiting times.
|Sky customer service number||Sky Wait Time||Average Wait Time Other providers|
|Broadband||3 minutes 21 seconds||4 minutes 9 seconds|
|Mobile||2 minutes 33 seconds||2 minutes 7 seconds|
|Landline||3 minutes 21 seconds||4 minutes 9 seconds|
If you don't want to wait on the phone and are comfortable speaking to a human via text message (SMS), Sky also allows you to send queries via text on 0786 001 5582 to get a response from one of their agents. They do warn that responses to this number may not be immediate and that you will be charged at your provider’s standard rates. Don’t bother to call this number - no one will answer!
