Can I switch to faster broadband?
Possibly. Start by checking your current speed vs your package speed. But remember, that with standard broadband, most companies use Openreach’s infrastructure, which is owned by BT. Simply switching provider won’t necessarily give you better speeds as you’ll still be using the same wires.
However, you might get faster speeds if you switch to a fibre service, These are available from a range of providers, but what is available to you may depend on where you live.
First check that you’re out of your existing broadband contract or getting close to it. Most broadband packages have financial penalties for breaking your contract.
Remember, when signing up to a new deal look for the speed the provider will guarantee. You’ll find this in your contract. This is the speed that the provider commits to provide you on a regular basis.
