O2 news

Sky has dismissed concerns that its acquisition of O2 and Be Broadband's home broadband businesses will cause network problems.

The broadband provider was recently forced to add extra capacity in certain areas, after an influx of new customers caused its network to slow down.

And with O2 and Be's fixed-line subscribers set to migrate over to Sky, concerns have been raised over the potential for a recurrence.

However, speaking to CNET UK, a spokesperson for the broadband provider moved to allay such fears.

"On the rare occasions where temporary congestion issues have arisen in specific exchanges, Sky has moved quickly to upgrade them with extra capacity," the representative stated.

The spokesperson said web traffic is not shaped at any time, on any application, on Sky's network.

As such, Sky subscribers always receive the fastest broadband speed available via their connection.
