Download speeds of up to 80Mbps

Not every Superfast connection is the same – there are things that can affect your speed, like your distance from the cabinet and the wiring and equipment in your home. But, with average download speeds of between 35-65 Mbps, and a top speed of 80 Mbps, Superfast can download a 4K movie in under 24 mins and 100 of your favourite songs in under 80 seconds.

Your choice of phone line

You can buy a traditional copper (PSTN) phone line with Superfast until September 2023 – after that we’ll only be offering a digital phone line option, ahead of the national switchover to digital phone lines in 2026. We recommend checking with your service provider about the phone line options they offer, as you may also be able to get Superfast without ordering a phone line service.

The largest selection of service providers in the UK

Phoneline options you get with Superfast Full Fibre Broadband

Digital phoneline icon Digital phoneline A digital phone line uses your fibre broadband connection instead of the copper telephone network. It means that your phone calls will be made using the same technology as when you use WhatsApp, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, and Skype. Because it’s digital, you’ll be able to use your landline while you’re on the go and may have access to cheaper calls and premium features, like Anonymous Call Barring and Call Divert.
Analogue phone line icon Analogue phone line An analogue phone line uses the copper telephone network – it’s the system we’ve been using for over a century. While it’s served us all well, it’s time for an upgrade – which is why we’re phasing it out gradually, before switching it off in 2025. It’s worth bearing that in mind when making your choice of which type of phone line you want to use for your broadband.
No phone line icon No phone line If you want broadband but aren’t interested in a phone service, it’s possible to order both Superfast and Gfast without a phone line. You’ll need to check with your chosen service provider to make sure they offer this option.

What happens once you order?

How we’ll install your Superfast

Most homes and businesses in the UK are already equipped for Superfast fibre broadband. You can easily check by looking for the Openreach master socket, which is where your phone and your router plug into the wall.

If you find one, you can order Superfast from your chosen service provider. If not, we’ll send an engineer. We’ll have to drill into the wall to install one, so you’ll need the permission of the property owner.
