Absolutely shameful conduct by Hyperoptic. We had to cancel our contract due to moving home for personal reasons. When I explained this, despite having been a loyal customer for nearly two years, I was informed I would have to pay exorbitant charges to leave the contract; no discretion was employed at all. Having disputed this and asked them to reconsider, I am still waiting for a response after eight days. In the meantime, we have been contacted by the new tenants of our old flat (which we no longer live in!) and been informed that Hyperoptic will refuse to connect them until we have resolved this dispute. Essentially, they are holding a new tenant to ransom over this in an attempt to guilt us into coughing up for their heavy charges.

I have never been more distressed, angry and disappointed by a provider in my life. You will find they are very friendly and helpful when you first sign up, but their customer care after that is utterly shoddy and they have no interest in you as a customer, only in how much money they can extort from your wallet. I would suggest you avoid Hyperoptic if you possibly can and go with an established, reputable provider.

London Hyperoptic  
Our building went Hyperopic about three months ago in a building of 60 flats although I don't know what the uptake rate is in the building.
I have the 1Gb/s package and a wired Ethernet network including wired connections to my my Smart TV and Amazon Fire Stick.
I have been very pleased with the connection, made a huge difference to when multiple devices were using bandwidth simultaneously.
Ping varies between zero and about 7. When the network is not busy, Downloads Ookla speedtest and steam dowwnloads usually come in around 800Mb/s which is very good, during peak times there is less bandwidth but will usually not go below 400+Mb/s. Uploads more variable, usually 800+Mb/s but sometimes a lot less, presumably depending on what the neighbours are doing. The best speed I have clocked on the wireless 5Gz connection is about 300Mb/s.
It has also made me realise how slow a lot of the internet still is...

I have paid for 100 MB Broadband. I normally get only 30-40 MB on wireless. It sometimes drop till 1 MB as well. I have complained about the same and they told me it is due to traffic in the building and non connected devices causing the problem. Router is near my Living room and I am not sure if devices not connected then jow much bandwidth they can take

Croydon Hyperoptic  
We had this service for over 3 years. For the last 6 month it is terrible. Slow, drops out all the time and the Customer Service is the worse. Their solution to the slow speed is to upgrade the speed. Really concerning because the speed was perfect over the years. Pushy sales calls practise. We will leave this service and I would not recommend them. I would stay away.

Use them for the speed, for that they're great. For the rest, meh.

Their supplied router is rather mediocre so get a better one. (Doesn't even do 5GHz.)

Also, don't e-mail them about anything technical because they're not going to give a useful answer. Support for IPv6 not coming any time soon either.

The speed is terrible, I might as well be on dialup. Webpages don't load that used to load, youtube buffers, movie streaming goes all pixelated and continually pauses, sometimes I can't even load facebook...or even google!
Customer Service is efficient and can get through, but whats the point when the product is rubbish?
speedtest.org numbers shows that its better than my previous provider, but WHY do all these problems happen then? I might as well go back to ADSL because even though it says a larger number on Hyperoptic fibre, the ACTUAL experience is SLOW.
I don't understand all the positive reviews - perhaps it is localised ot my building, but when i call they say no issue with my area or building. Its getting worse by the day, and I have seen our neighbours installing hyperoptic too... will leave Hyperoptic as soon as I can, even if it means paying out the contract. Its terrible.
