Frequently Asked Questions By Our Users
We've listed below the top frequently asked questions we've received from our users:
Can I switch my broadband Internet provider whenever I want to?
Yes you can, but it is wise to switch supplier when your contract period ends (when you are out of contract) as there will be no cancellation charges to pay. If you're not aware of when your contract ends, simply give your existing provider a call to find out.
Should you receive notification from your existing provider of a forthcoming increase in the price of your broadband package, under Ofcom rules, you are permitted to exit your contract without penalty within 30 days of receiving the price increase notice. Check out our article on the 3 ways to beat the broadband price hikes.
Do I need to get a MAC code from my existing supplier to switch to a new cheaper provider?
No, not anymore. The process is now far more easier if you're switching from and to a provider that uses the BT Openreach network (e.g BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Plusnet & many more). There's no need for you to contact your existing supplier as the responsibility for the broadband and landline switch lies with the company you are switching to. So, once you've chosen a new Internet provider and ordered a new package on their website, they'll do the rest and email you the estimated date for the transfer of service. You should only lose your landline and broadband connection for a minimal time on the day of the switch.
This new process does not apply if you're switching to or from Virgin Media, where you'll need to liaise with both providers regarding the timings of the switch.

Which broadband Internet provider in the UK is the best?
Though standard ADSL copper broadband with average download speeds of 10Mbps are available to most parts of the UK, faster fibre optic broadband provides a far better experience and can offer average speeds ranging from 36Mbps to 362Mbps. Fibre optic broadband is being rolled out across the country by the UK's best broadband providers like BT (with BT Openreach) and Virgin Media, so you will need to check availability for your area with our fibre broadband postcode checker. Other top broadband providers like Sky, Plusnet and TalkTalk use the BT Openreach fibre optic network for their own fibre services.
