No: the only 'Ultrafast' service a copper line and master phone socket can deliver uses G.fast broadband technology, and Sky has only ever resold an 'up to' 150Mbs version of that (in areas with appropriate Openreach infrastructure)

 

G.fast has a maximum speed of 'up to' 300Mbs so cannot match Ultrafast+ (500Mbs) anyway, which is why it's no longer being deployed into any new areas.
