Sky is to commence trials of its Sky Fibre Lite service, which offers broadband speeds of 18Mbps.

Details of which parts of the UK will take part in the trial are yet to be confirmed, but the move comes ahead of the Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC) technology's launch in July.

Speaking to, a spokesperson for Sky said the new product will "significantly increase their broadband speeds and give them a better experience when using the internet".

"These customers will be able to do more of what we know they love, like downloading their favourite on-demand TV shows faster and streaming live video content," the official commented.

Sky added that it is committed to making sure that its customers have the best possible broadband service and will therefore continue looking at ways to offer them better speeds.

Customers who take part in the trial will not be required to pay anything on top of their usual costs in order to enjoy the 18Mbps FTTC service.
