Setting up Hyperoptic broadband

Setting up Hyperoptic broadband

How long does Hyperoptic take to set up?

Our installs are quick and easy. They usually last about one hour and can be booked six days a week, at a time that suits you.

We’ll get your service up and running and will clean up after ourselves before we leave.

If we have availability, we can even install as early as the next day.

How do we install Hyperoptic in your home?

Our engineer will drill a small hole (10mm), in most cases above your front door, and will run a discreet, surface-mounted cable inside your property to the closest plug socket. In some cases, we’ll use an internal fibre converter.

We’ll either install a small socket on the wall by the plug or a fibre connector. Both will allow you to plug in your Hyperhub router and connect to our service.

In most cases, our installs take about an hour and our engineer will always clean up after themselves. If you’re renting, please make sure you get permission from the landlord or homeowner before booking the installation.

How the fibre magic happens

On the day of your install, one of our engineers will visit you to install a socket or internal fibre converter, connect the router and make sure your service is up and running smoothly before they take off. All within an hour.

The super tools

Our engineers bring a couple of appliances with them:

1) The cordless drill – not even they can magic cable through a wall, so they’ll drill a small hole (1cm) just above your front door to bring it in.

2) The cordless vacuum – any small bits of dust left by the installation will be all gone. You won’t even know they’ve been round.

Hyperoptic service activation

How quickly can my Hyperoptic service be activated?

You can be activated right away once your install is complete and your router is connected.

Alternatively, if you’d like to delay your activation, you can:

– Pick a date up to 30 days after installation online
– Pick a date up to 90 days after installation by calling us

If you already have a socket installed and compatible router, you can go live right away!

If you have a socket installed but no router, we’ll send you one. As long as you connect it within 24 hours of receiving it, your service should go live right away (or on the day of your desired activation).
