Fibre Optic Broadband FAQs

  1. How do I get fibre broadband?

    Put your postcode into our comparison tool to see what’s available where you live. You’ll need an active phone line for the majority of fibre services, such as BT Infinity, as they’re delivered like standard broadband.

    The main exception is Virgin Media, which doesn't require a phone line because it uses a separate network. Once you've found a package that ticks all the boxes, click through to the provider’s website and sign up. Then it won’t be long before you’re all set up.

  2. How fast is fibre broadband?

    Speeds vary between providers and packages, but most fibre broadband offers download speeds of up to 30Mb or faster. BT Infinity, Sky Fibre and TalkTalk fibre broadband have speeds of up to 38Mb or 76Mb depending on the package. Virgin Media cable broadband is even faster, with speeds of up to 152Mb on top-end bundles.

    While ‘up to’ speeds are never guaranteed, when you’re on fibre the speeds you receive are typically closer to the advertised speeds than with standard broadband.

  3. What fibre package should I get?
    Think about how the people you live with use the internet. Does everyone connect to the Wi-Fi at the same time? If so, you’ll want a faster speeds and an unlimited package. Think about things it’d be nice to have too, like Sky Sports or Sky Movies, and see if there’s a bundle that includes them. Try not to forget your budget. A lot of offers expire after a few months, leaving you with a bigger bill for the remainder of your contract, so don’t sign up until you’re 100% sure what you’ll be paying.
  4. How long does it take to switch to fibre?
    It varies between providers, but usually within a couple of weeks from when you place the order. It can be much quicker, or it can be slightly longer, depending on whether you need an engineer to visit you. Your new provider will give you a more accurate idea of how long the switching process will take
  5. Can I keep my email address if I switch provider?
    Most providers don’t have a party line on it. Chances are, if you’re moving to a rival provider, you won’t be able to keep it. Ask your current provider before you switch though. If it’s a no, it’s not the end of the world. These days, you can move all your contacts in one go to a specialist email service like Gmail or Outlook - formerly known as Hotmail - then you’ll never be tied to a provider by your email address again.
