Hyperoptic

In their own words: There’s no other broadband like it. Hyperoptic are unique on the UK broadband scene in that they never use old-fashioned copper phone wires. Their network is fully fibre optic all the way to the building, and provides the fastest speeds available on the market. The team behind Hyperoptic is the same one that set records in superfast broadband with the Be Unlimited in 2005.

In 2011, this same team launched Hyperoptic’s first installment in Prices Court in London, giving the residents of its 133 units huge 1Gbps speeds. Hyperoptic now offer similar service to residents in 28 UK towns and cities, and to see if their hyperfast fibre optic broadband is available to you they have a simple postcode checker on their website to let you know. If you’re lucky enough and it’s available, there are several packages available to you, be they just for broadband or with line rental included.

Do Hyperoptic’s reviews back up their claim?

In short: yes, they really do. Hyperoptic boasts a five star rating on the review site Trustpilot, with 78% of reviewers rating them “Excellent” - the highest score.

With immensely high speeds and quality service seemingly a given, it is the setup that seems to impress reviewers the most. The time between purchase and installation is often no more than a couple of days, and satisfaction with this quick and effective service is a running theme throughout most of the reviews:
