Just received an extra 10% off full fibre broadband from Hyperoptics via post. Use code EXTRA10 for 10% off prices shown on their website.

Also get free installation and free activation (usually £40) - 12 month contract

Limited locations but worth calling 0333 332 1111 to see if you can get the deal.

This service is not currently offered to the vast majority of ordinary homes.

Only offered / feasible to residents of large apartment blocks and large blocks of flats.

Hypothetically it can be done but they don't currently offer it, and won't be doing for some time. (Perhaps they will argue otherwise, but you can check for yourself. It doesn't happen according to their maps.)

Their 100Mb package is now 150Mb

I'm currently with these guys and can't sing their praises highly enough. 100Mb upload and download speed, actual tests show it is North of 95Mbps both ways. No throttling, no hidden fair usage policy, and they aren't one of the major ISPs who have to ban the torrent sites.... Not that I would condone such behaviour. Perfect for anyone who runs a personal home server. Unfortunately limited to urban flats at the moment.

I don't get why people say this.

Almost every modern spinning disk can manage to do 125MB/sec which would be full gigabit speed.
Secondly, because someone has gigabit, doesn't mean they are going to be able to download at 1Gb.
I have 100mbit and most of the time the only place I can get full 100mbit from is a popular torrent.
I rarely get it from a website etc.

Just tested a Hitachi 5TB disk in my NAS:


Timing buffered disk reads: 622 MB in3.00 seconds = 206.99 MB/sec


and a manual write to the disk speed check with dd


838860800 bytes (839 MB, 800 MiB) copied, 5.46306 s, 154 MB/s


so yeah. you don't need an SSD to be able to use a gigabit line at saturation. the bottleneck is unlikely to be the disk.
and thats if you find somewhere that is happy to serve you at 125MB/sec. Gigabit is useful for multiple people doing multiple things like streaming. It's not that useful for a single individual.

what's not available?

Limited locations available. Not available for me

Their infrastructure isn't available in most locations.. they're slowly expanding though. Can't wait to get a gigabit connection when they do reach Lewisham

Yea it will only be multi tenant buildings as they will be paying BT about £120 a month for the line to the exchange so will need a few customers to break even.

So this won't be reaching rural Devon/Cornwall anytime soon then!

NOT AVAILABLE IN MY AREA - WEMBLEY LONDON

The title confused me. A MB is not a Mb.

thanks - changed

Don't forget Topcashback available too!

Not available in many areas - feel free to check again in year 2050!

Soon ... will smash BT to the Kerb

wait... £19/month for 12 months then £25... £29/month for 12 months then £38... is this really a deal or a trap?

Not available in almost all areas...and I remember reading they had under 200k customers which would put them well under a third of a percent of UK covered.

I live in one of the areas they originally stated they cover but was told it would be "around 2025" before they could connect me.

I'm a Hyperoptic customer and would definitely recommend them, they offer fibre only which is perfect for me because I've never bothered with landlines, I also always get the advertised 100/100 speed. The only downside is their limited coverage, I want to move but I don't want to go back to crappy internet.

Depends on the length of the contract.

Kind of both. It's normal for ISPs to do this kind of thing, which is (IMHO) annoying. On the positive side, it's probably not available to me in any case...

I guess if I am already 8 months down the contract, I couldn't take advantage of this, can I?

The problem is they don't connect "areas" but connect buildings on an individual basis. If you live in a house, as opposed to a flat in a large block, you can forget it.

My brother has the 1gb package in city centre of leeds. Problem is unless he's writing to an SSD his hard drive is a bottleneck haha.

I've been a customer for over a year and now pay £25 a month for their 20mb service. Is it possible for me to get a new contract and take up this offer or do i have to leave them and rejoin as a new customer if i really want this price?

An ISP who only services the 10%< of the population who live in giant blocks of flats.

So if you own a block of flats, great.

I'm so glad somebody mentioned this.

If you live in a house. The answer is: NO

This CANNOT be compared to a regular UK ISP and it's totally unfair to do so.

In 20 miles of my house Hyperoptic service one block of flats. The dream of gigabit internet continues.

Hyperoptic is today upgrading 20Mb to 30Mb and 100Mb to 150Mb for no additional charge. 100Mb was way too much bandwidth, great service

it is amazing how far behind we in the West are when it comes to fast fibre broadband. Broadband speed league tables put Eastern countries such as South Korea, Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong etc at the very top, because these countries invested heavily in fibre optic tech when this arrived back in the 90's/ noughties. In fact, a 1Gbps residential connection is quite standard in SK, you can pay more for 10Gbps.

Hopefully these kinds of speeds will be realised in the UK during our lifetimes - I live in hope!

I can see the attraction of higher upload speeds but currently I don't feel the need for a boost from 70Mb download on Virgin.

The jump from 56k to the first broadband connection of 512kb was astounding but since then nothing has seemed noticeable.
But all those incremental upgrades have made streaming of video feasible.
I remember trying Sky Sports years ago and half way through a game Virgin would throttle the speed so that it was useless.

Good fine OP. However, should mention reach is quite limited and mainly in urban flats. Virgin Media should still suit most folks.

I won't bang a drum about them but I _believe_ BT are one of the few ISP's who will give the advertised speeds basically all the time.
I wasn't told about it until after I left an area covered by them where I used them, but thinking back, I don't recall any speed issues at any point that had me reach for a speed test.

Edit: reading around, maybe I'm talking out of my bum. It WAS very early doors in the fibre rollout so maybe it was before it got busy.

No, you got a 3 month free promotion with your contract so no.

Thank you OP. Looks a great deal. I live in a 1mb area, and I'm not out in the wilds. Hearing about these deals keeps me informed of developments. I now get 29mb on 4G through posts here that according to my network provider are not possible.

Good luck to those who can benefit. The better these new companies do then the other fat lazy providers have to up their game to keep their customers.

Looks like it won't apply to existing customers. And I just got connected on Friday to 100Mb!

On the 1Gb question, they can't increase the top package of 1Gb anyway because the router can't handle it and more importantly they're still installing cat5e cable in premises. The installer hinted they're looking at Cat6 with a view of speed increases next year. Why on earth they're still doing cat5e is beyond me, the price difference is pretty small.

That update wasn't there when I read it earlier :-(

Thanks to being in one of the test areas (Chester South), I currently have FTTP installed by Openreach (so right to my living room rather than just to the cabinet).

Does anyone know if I'd be able to apply to get Hyperoptic through this, seeing as it is a full fibre connection? or are they more like Virgin Media with their own cabling?
