After the Big Switch Off in December 2025, current landlines will largely be retired and unable to make phone calls. The introduction of FTTP (Full Fibre to the Premise) Broadband to UK homes allows for a future-proof and beneficial calling system to take the traditional landlines place. This next-generation service utilises digital voice technology carried by fibre cables to connect callers from homes or businesses. Key benefits include cheaper installation and running costs, greater service flexibility and reliability, as well as improved audio quality.
Superfast broadband technology uses a fibre optic cable which gives you a much higher download and upload speeds.
Our Superfast Fibre - Self Install has no setup fee. Self install means you plug in the pre-configured router and you are ready to go online.
There is no set-up fee if you choose the standard 24-month contract.; if you'd like to have a 12-month contract you can pay a £30.00 set-up fee on any packages excluding our Ultrafast services.
You will get a free router when you switch (£6 postage & packaging).
If there’s any problem with speed and you’re not getting the speeds we’ve told you your line is capable of, we’ll do our best to resolve the issue. If you’re not completely satisfied after 30 days of reporting your problem, you can walk away, no questions asked. This promise applies for the duration of your contract with Your Co-op Broadband.
This guarantee only applies if the issue is due to problems with the broadband service we provide. It does not apply to problems with the copper line supplying your home, or with your Wi-Fi connection from the router to your device (for example if you get good speed in one room and poor speed in another, it is likely to be down to the router signal, not the broadband speed).
The guarantee applies if you are not getting the minimum specified broadband speed in your order details. It does not apply to the advertised average or ‘up to’ speeds. You must use our speed checker at https://www.speedtest.net/ so we can view the speed you are achieving and confirm whether you are achieving the minimum specified speed or not.
Also please note the following:
If you cancel a planned engineer visit, we may extend the deadline by a reasonable period so that we have time to work together and resolve the problem.
If you can’t attempt to diagnose or resolve the problem when you report it to us, for example if you are away from home or the affected premises when you report the problem, we may extend the deadline by a reasonable period.
If you repeatedly miss planned engineer appointments or fail to take reasonable steps as requested by us – meaning that we can’t help to diagnose or solve the problem – the guarantee will no longer apply, and you will be charged for your broadband as originally agreed and a missed appointment charge will be added to your bill. You will be told when this has happened and we will clearly explain why.
There may be other exceptional circumstances beyond our control – for example, a missed or delayed Openreach appointment, the need to obtain street works permissions or severe weather which causes multiple faults across parts of the UK – which make us technically unable to resolve the speed problem. In this instance, we may ask you for more time to see if we can fix the issue.
