Hardly anyone has just one Internet device, and a Sky router lets Sky Broadband customers access the Internet from multiple devices simultaneously. Dial-up modems were fine when very few people used the Internet, so it was reasonable to take turns. However, as more and more people use multiple devices from computers to tablets and mobiles, they need something to manage all those connections.
That's where a Sky router comes in. It provides full wireless connectivity throughout the home, and many models can interface directly with your existing Sky box to unlock Sky's On Demand entertainment packages. While most routers are wireless, many also provide Ethernet connections so you can wire high bandwidth devices directly into the hub for maximum performance.
