Hyperoptic pioneers ‘no contract’ fibre broadband
July 6, 2015
In stark contrast to the rest of the UK’s broadband industry, Hyperoptic, the nation’s fastest broadband provider, is putting consumers first by introducing a ‘no contract’ option for new customers.
Hyperoptic is the UK’s leading Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband provider. Renowned for pioneering gigabit connectivity and symmetrical broadband, as well as broadband-only services (no phone line required), it is now adding another feather to its bow – flexibility.
The minimum contract term for fibre broadband packages in the UK is typically 12-18 months. Consumers who want to be released from these fixed contracts are subject to significant exit penalties.
Dana Tobak, Managing Director, Hyperoptic, comments: “In a market such as broadband, it can be hard to compare competing products – especially when most of them are the same. Many broadband companies try and stand out from the crowd by investing millions in their advertising and by attempting to lure customers to sign lengthy contracts by giving away free gifts.
“At Hyperoptic we are proud to be different, as well as the fastest. We were the first broadband company in the UK to offer consumers gigabit connectivity by using our own, dedicated network - over 135 times faster than traditional ASDL services. Now, by offering consumers a ‘no contract’ option, we are giving people what they want and need: the UK’s fastest most consistent broadband with complete flexibility.”
The costs for Hyperoptic’s ‘no contract’ services are outlined below – there is also a one-time set up and installation fee of £40, which includes a gigabit router.
