We currently have Virgin broadband running in modern mode connected to a Google Mesh system with multiple access points.
Virgin are putting up prices so we are thinking of moving to Sky.
I can't get clear from reading forum posts whether we would be able to connect our Google Mesh system easily to Sky.
We would not have Sky TV or anything other than broadband. I have read this can be a problem.
I've read Sky doesn't have a modem mode and perhaps I can connect Google Mesh and just disable the Sky WiFi network. Is this correct?
Other posts talk about more complicated approaches which to be honest I don't fully understand without further reading. E.g. issues with double authentication or messing with IP address settings within Google hub setup.
Can anyone give a simple answer whether we will be able to use our Google Mesh if we switch to Sky? Many thanks.

@RayJK21 yes you can use Google/Nest mesh with Sky hubs. Simply turen off tge Sky hub's wifi and configure tge Google units to operate in bridge mode (aka Access Point mode) and it should w ork well. I use something similsr withba TP-Link Deco set-up.

Contact Virgin and tell them you are leaving and they'll probably offer you a better deal, I've moved from Virgin to Sky as Virgin aren't in my new area yet and the whole product is inferior.
