Broadband options
Broadband type Fixed-line broadband is available either as standard (ADSL) broadband, or fibre optic. Fibre optic broadband is much faster and more reliable, but it isn’t available everywhere and can cost more.
Monthly usage allowance The amount you download determines the broadband package you should get. To keep things simple, we ask if you would like to see packages which are unlimited. These packages are ideal for users who are online for several hours during the day, or use the internet extensively for entertainment - like downloading movies and TV, streaming entertainment, or playing games. They are also good for large households where several people go online at the same time. If that sounds like you, pick ‘Just unlimited’.
Minimum speed Your broadband speed determines how fast web pages load, files are downloaded, the time streaming video takes to buffer, and more. For a big household, or one where you stream lots of video or play games, a fast speed is recommended

Find the best fibre optic broadband deals for your area

With blisteringly fast speeds, and impressive reliability, fibre optic broadband’s perfect for shared households, large families, or anyone who likes to watch TV and movies, listen to music or play games online. Here’s what you need to know.

Okay, so what’s so special about fibre optic broadband?

If you want to get the most out of the internet, you need a fibre optic broadband connection.

Why? Well, it's the fastest type of broadband you can get in the UK for starters. Compared to a standard broadband connection, fibre is like Usain Bolt on rocket-powered rollerskates, making browsing the web as smooth as butter and allowing you to download movie-size files in mere minutes.

Read on, and we’ll tell you everything you need to know about superfast fibre optic broadband deals, including how to get it, how to find out whether you can get it, and whether or not you really need it.

Fibre optic broadband download speeds

The main attraction of fibre is, of course, that it gives you more speed for your buck. While standard (ADSL) broadband tends to have advertised download speeds of about 10Mb, fibre goes above and beyond. Basic packages have average speeds of around 35Mb, but the fastest around - from Virgin Media - has an average download speed of 350Mb. That's mega fast. Some more niche providers even have packages with speeds up to 1Gb (1,000Mb)!

Switching up to a basic fibre package will give you a significant speed boost, and make it easier to do things like connect lots of gadgets at once and stream video with no issue. For a particularly big household, on the other hand, it's worth looking at faster options.

Which providers offer fibre optic broadband?

Most national broadband providers now offer fibre optic broadband packages. So if you’re interested in a superfast package, you might want to consider the likes of:

  • BT Superfast Fibre - Offers average speeds as fast as 67Mb, and unlimited downloads.
  • Virgin Media - Packages go up to a massive 362Mb, though it's not available everywhere. One of the few providers that offers broadband on its own without line rental too.
  • Sky - Advertises average speeds of 57Mb, either with unlimited downloads, or cheaper with a download limit.
  • TalkTalk - A bargain provider with packages that with average speeds as high as 63Mb.
  • Plusnet - average speed of 66Mb on its top package, and unlimited downloads.
  • EE - fastest package has average speeds of 67Mb, and an extra data boost on your EE mobile plan if you're already a user.

Can I get fibre optic broadband in my area?

One of the biggest drawbacks of fibre broadband is that not everyone can get it yet. In some areas, you may be able to pick and choose from loads of fibre optic deals, whereas in others - particularly in the countryside - you may find you have no options at all.

That's changing though. Fibre optic broadband's now available to around 90% of homes and businesses in the UK, and that number is growing.

So, if you're interested in getting fibre optic broadband right now, you should check to make sure you can get it. Pop your postcode into the box above to see what fibre optic deals are available in your area.

What can you do with fibre optic broadband?

The extra grunt you get from fibre will give general browsing a boost, but there are some online activities where you'll really see a the difference. Here are just a few:

You can download files, including films and music, very quickly

Fibre optic broadband download speeds are so fast that downloading files becomes a snap. With a 100Mb connection, for example, you can download a DVD quality movie in less than five minutes, and an entire album in just a few seconds.

The whole family can get online at the same time

Your internet gets slower if lots of people are using it at once. Large households often find that they can’t do what they want as a result. With fibre that's less of an issue. Your connection will still get slower, but because it's so much faster to start with, it's unlikely to drop to unusable levels.

You can stream films and TV in high-definition

If you like to watch TV and films online, through services like BBC iPlayer and Now TV, or subscription services like YouView from BT and TalkTalk, you'll love fibre. It gives the smoothest possible experience, with minimal loading, or interruptions, even in high-definition (HD).

It makes gaming smoother and faster

If you're a serious gamer, you need fast broadband. It could help performance of multiplayer games - ensuring you don't miss the crucial moment in a match on FIFA or a once-in-a-lifetime headshot in Call of Duty. But more importantly, it will let you download the games themselves, extra content, and updates and patches very quickly, so you spend more time playing and less time waiting to play.

You can make video calls reliably

Phone calls are good and all, but sometimes you want to speak to someone face to face. On a video screen. It's especially useful if you have friends and family overseas. Online video calls and conferences can be data-intensive, and the faster your connection the smoother your experience will be.

Do I need fibre optic broadband?

For some people fibre optic broadband does indeed revolutionise their lives, but it is more expensive than regular broadband, and you don’t necessarily need it. So who does?

You will are likely to benefit from fibre optic broadband if you:

  • Have a large family living in the same house
  • Share accommodation with more than one other person
  • Watch a lot of movies online
  • Regularly use online TV catch-up services like BBC iPlayer
  • Have a TV service like YouView, which allows you to stream content from the web
  • Regularly upload photos and videos
  • Play games online
  • Regularly download and upload large files
  • Use video calling services like Skype on a regular basis

However, if you live alone or in a small household, and typically only use the internet for checking email, going on Facebook, and occasionally watching iPlayer, you can probably save money by picking a cheaper non-fibre package. To see what else is out there, simply use our broadband comparison service.

Can I get fibre optic broadband without line rental?

Fibre broadband is available on its own without line rental, but only from one provider: Virgin Media. Because it uses its own cable network, it's able to give you a broadband connection without requiring you to get a landline too.

Compare broadband-only deals

All other providers, however, can't offer broadband without line rental, fibre optic or otherwise. Broadband connections are delivered to your home via telephone lines, so we're afraid line rental is essential to get you online. The good news is that it's included in the price of your broadband from the provider you pick - it's easy as pie to get installed and doesn't cost anything extra.

What is fibre optic broadband?

Unlike telephone lines - which have essentially been repurposed to carry broadband - fibre optic cables are custom-built for broadband. Information is transmitted as flashes of light. The thing about light is that it travels extremely quickly. There's less chance of interference slowing down fibre too.

This means the broadband speeds you get from a fibre package are much faster than you'd get from a 'traditional' connection, and you get speeds much closer to the speeds advertised by providers to boot.

That's not to say speeds will be exactly the same as advertised, mind you. Most superfast packages use fibre optic cables to your nearest cabinet - the green box on or near your street - and run from there Into the home via copper telephone wire, which is unreliable and prone to interference at the best of times. As a result, some drop in speed is inevitable - how much depends on the distance covered.

The exception to the rule is Virgin Media, which has its own network. In this case, coaxial cables - which are designed to reduce interference - run right into the house, so you are more likely to get the speeds advertised with Virgin Media than you are with other fibre broadband providers.

Fibre Optic Broadband FAQs

  1. How do I get fibre broadband?

    Exactly the same way you'd get regular broadband. Put your postcode into our comparison tool to see what’s available where you live:

    Fibre optic broadband

    You’ll need an active phone line for the majority of fibre services, such as BT Infinity, as they’re delivered through that.

    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 average download speeds of around 35Mb or faster. BT Infinity has average speeds of 50Mb or 67Mb; while Sky Fibre has average download speeds of 34Mb and 57Mb, and TalkTalk fibre broadband has average speeds of 35Mb or 63Mb depending on the package. Virgin Media cable broadband is even faster, with average speeds of 362Mb 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. 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.
  4. Can I get broadband without a phone line?
    Cable giant Virgin Media is the only major UK provider to offer broadband without a telephone line. Its fibre optic network is completely separate from the copper phone wire network that ordinarily connects you to the web. Aside from this, the only alternative is to use mobile broadband instead - then you have no requirement for a landline. But, if your internet use is anything other than particularly light, this might just prove to be too slow or too restrictive to need your needs.

    See broadband-only deals here
  5. Can I keep my email address if I change provider?
    This depends entirely on who your current provider is. If your email address is from BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media, or Plusnet, you'll still have access to your emails at least temporarily - but we'd suggest changing over to a free service like Gmail or Outlook so you don't need to worry about losing all your emails just for switching broadband. See our guide for more info.
  6. Can I keep my phone number if I switch provider?

    Yes, you can normally keep your existing number if you switch from one provider to another. However if you're a cable customer or need a new line, you may need to get a new one.

    For everything you need to know, see our guide: Can I keep my phone number?
