Full Fibre is broadband, but not as you know it

Important information about your new Full Fibre connection

Great news - you’ve just joined the Ultrafast Full Fibre family.

Now we’ve completed your Full Fibre installation, you’re ready to enjoy our fastest and most reliable broadband ever. 

Full Fibre works differently to your old broadband, so there are a few things worth remembering to help you get the most from it and avoid problems. Let’s take a look: 

Always keep the wall mounted unit and router plugged in and switched on. Your Full Fibre broadband won't work without them.

Power

Always keep the wall mounted unit and the router plugged directly into a main socket (avoid adaptors if possible).

 

And remember that switching them off can lead to problems so try keep them always switched on.

Connections

Try not to unplug your router and move it, but if you need to, remember to make sure your ethernet cable is plugged back into the correct ethernet port on your router. 

Remember that your broadband speed can be affected by the type and number of devices you have connected and the speed you ordered from your service provider. Sometimes it takes time for the speed on your connection to settle so if you're not happy give it a few days to settle before contacting your service provider.

Speed

The connection we deliver to your property is Ultrafast but the speed you ordered and the equipment in your home will lead to some loss of speed. This is perfectly normal.

 

The type of router and the age, quality & number of devices connected to your new line will all impact the speed you measure when using any online speed checker.

 

If you're not happy with your speed, please speak to your service provider about your home setup.

Get the best wi-fi signal by keeping your router as close to the centre of your property as possible and making sure there's nothing in front that could weaken your signal.

Wi-fi

For the best Wi-fi coverage, keep your router as close to the centre of your property as possible and make sure it's not obstructed. As a rule, the more visible your router is, the better your speed.

 

And don’t worry if some areas of your property have a weaker signal, that’s normal too.

 

To optimise your Wi-fi signal please contact your service provider.
