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 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 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 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 is the best?

Though standard ADSL copper broadband with speeds typically up to 17Mbps are available to most parts of the UK, faster fibre optic broadband provides a far better experience and can offer speeds ranging from 38Mbps to up to 300Mbps. Fibre optic broadband is being rolled out across the UK by BT Openreach and Virgin Media, so you will need to check availability for your area with our fibre broadband postcode checker. Broadband providers like Sky, Plusnet and TalkTalk use the BT Openreach fibre optic network for their own fibre services.

What's the best way to compare broadband deals?

Once you've entered your postcode into our broadband availability checker, you'll be presented with a list of broadband packages available in your area. These are our broadband comparison search result tables which can be sorted by a range of criteria like 1st year cost, broadband speed, download limits and monthly cost. We advise you to sort the tables by your preferred criteria, then compare the deals available from the UK's broadband providers before choosing the right deal for you.
