Hyperoptic Switch provides an alternative if your current network providers aren't giving you what you are paying for or you need a faster internet option. This piece will provide insight into switching broadband services from your current provider to Hyperoptic, what to expect from this procedure and how long it takes.

How to switch to Hyperoptic

Even if you're still under contract, switching to Hyperoptic as your broadband provider is really simple.

While your current contract is still in effect, Hyperoptic will provide you up to 9 months of service through Switch Now, free of Package Charge2. This will allow you to free test our Full Fibre while maintaining your current connection.

Switch to Hyperoptic from other networks

Hyperoptic Switch is quite easy and rewarding. Hyperoptic operates an independent full-fibre broadband network. As it is distinct from other providers like Sky, BT, Virgin, and TalkTalk, you are not required to switch on the same day. You can run both services concurrently to avoid downtime while switching service providers.

  • Order from Hyperoptic: To avoid downtime while you switch, get your new service at You can schedule the launch date to fit your schedule.
  • If you are still under contract, don't worry: By selecting the Switch Now option, you may switch to Hyperoptic now and pay nothing until the end of your existing contract. Hyperoptic will provide you with free Hyperoptic broadband until your current Sky contract ends if you only inform Hyperoptic how long your contract has left. Send your contract expiration date to
  • Inform your provider: Log into your My Account. You can examine the specifics of your current contract by going to the menu and selecting Message Center from the list. You can also call customer support on their various numbers.
  • Disengage from your existing provider's contract: If you're still in your commitment period, you must give your current provider 30 days' notice (using the mentioned above) before switching providers, just like with many other providers. Check to see if you may bring any other services, such as sports or movie channels, from your current bundle. They should also work on the Hyperoptic network (and probably faster).
  • Book your Hyeroptic Installation: After placing your order for your new service, you may schedule the installation, which can take as little as an hour. Depending on availability, you can select your slot online, including the next day and Saturdays.

How long does it take to switch to Hyperoptic?

Hyperoptic attempts to get your service installed as quickly as possible, and if available, you can even be scheduled for the next day. Many large carriers keep you waiting for the typical 2-4 weeks.

After placing your order, you may check the install availability online and schedule it for a time that works for you. The actual installations just take an hour.
