Reasons to choose Hyperoptic

  • Unbeatable speed - With hyperfast 1Gb maximum speeds available, few other providers comes close to matching Hyperoptic
  • Upload speed - On Hyperoptic's 1Gb and 150Mb deals, upload speed is the same as download speed
  • 30Mb and 150Mb options available - If you don't need the full gigabit service then you can save money with a budget 30Mb/1Mb service, or a symmetric 150Mb service
  • Speed as advertised - As Hyperoptic uses full fibre to the building and high speed networks within the building, connection speeds average at least 95% of the advertised speed
  • Short contracts available - Customers have a choice of 12 month or 1 month contracts
  • Unlimited usage - Customers can download as much as they like without limits, there's no traffic shaping or throttling
  • No landline needed - Hyperoptic comes into your building via fibre optic cable, and into your home via a network faceplate, so broadband-only products are available
  • Phone bundles available - Hyperoptic can provide good value voice-over-broadband phone services with competitively priced phone bundles only £3 to £6 more than the broadband-only cost
  • Future proofed - Hyperoptic use full fibre to your apartment building, allowing them to increase broadband speeds as technology or demand progresses. Their building networks can support much higher speeds than are currently offered

Possible downsides

  • Limited availability - Only select urban locations are supported, at the beginning of 2016 this is hundreds of London postcode areas and buildings in Bristol, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Reading and Sheffield
  • Installation can be expensive outside of offer periods  - If your home hasn't already been given a Hyperoptic faceplate while your building was constructed or first connected, and if the pre-order phase is over, installation charges could be as much as £240
  • No copper phoneline - Hyperoptic's telephone services work over your broadband connection, meaning they won't work if you have a power cut or broadband outage, so you may have to rely on your mobile phone to make emergency calls, or separately maintain a copper phone connection
  • No 802.11ac wireless - Due to prioritising maximum wired connection speed, the supplied router only supports 802.11n limiting wireless connections to 130Mb per device, however you can connect your own router or access point
  • Excessive usage policy - Although Hyperoptic's broadband is unlimited and unthrottled, their fair usage policy states that if you make excessive use of your connection to the detriment of other customers, then your service may be suspended
