How To Change Broadband Provider


Do you feel unhappy with your current broadband provider, or are you simply looking for a better broadband deal? No longer should you have to jump through hoops to get cheaper broadband.

With many broadband providers saving their best deals for new customers it often makes sense to change broadband provider, particularly if you have been with the same provider for more than one year; unfortunately, loyalty when it comes to broadband, telephone, and TV deals is not always the best policy.

The good news for many, is that changing broadband provider is far easier than many actually expect, and with big potential savings to be made, it’s well worth reviewing your current package and comparing the best broadband deals online with us, using our impartial comparison website we’ll display broadband, phone and TV deals for you.

Once you select your broadband package and sign up, your new provider will then simply contact your existing provider and take care of everything for you. It really is that simple;

  1. Compare broadband deals
  2. Sign up with your new provider
  3. That’s it, you’re done, your new provider will do the rest!

If you are with Virgin Media, however, then you will need to contact them directly and refer to their Terms & Conditions.

Please note, that minimum terms may apply to your existing broadband contract which is typically 12 – 18 months. If you are unsure, then it’s worth checking with your current provider.


How long does it take to switch broadband?


Switching times can vary depending on the type of broadband deal and package that you’ve chosen. Typically, this should not take longer than approximately 10 working days; some providers may take longer.

When you do switch broadband and signup with a new provider you’ll be able to set a convenient installation date, which will normally include weekend slots too. This will allow you to time when to cancel your existing package for minimal downtime. Remember, when you sign up to a new provider they’ll even handle this process for you.

If you would like to speak to our friendly switch team, then please email contact us for more information support and guidance with no-obligation.

Remember, we present the latest special broadband deals available to new customers, be sure to compare, and ensure that you’re getting the best broadband deal to suit your needs.

The “average” speed displayed in Mb represents the speed available to 50% of customers with this product during peak time (between 8pm and 10pm). The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up — this may differ from the average speed displayed on our table.

The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.
