Can I get faster broadband elsewhere?
Remember that with conventional broadband, most companies use Openreach’s infrastructure which is owned by BT. Simply switching supplier won’t necessarily give you better speeds as you’ll still be using the same wires.
However, if you’re thinking of switching to a fibre optic service, or Virgin Media (who have their own infrastructure), first check that you are out of your existing broadband contract or getting close to it. This is because most broadband packages have financial penalties for breaking your contract.
Assuming you’re good to move, use our broadband comparison service to compare what packages are available to you. Not only do we allow you to compare broadband services but you have the option to bundle in your home phone and digital TV packages too if you wish.
Simply enter your postcode and we’ll show you the deals available in your area. If you get stuck we’re also waiting to help you on the end of the phone. Just call our experts, 8am - 9pm Monday to Sunday, on 0800 276 1180.
Remember, when signing up to a new deal look for the speed the provider will guarantee rather than the “up to” speed. You’ll find this in your contract t&cs. This is the speed that the provider commits to provide you on a regular basis.
