How to Switch Broadband Providers

Compare Broadband Deals »

Switching broadband providers can be an easy process, with many companies competing for customers in the broadband market. Customers may be restricted by contract terms and conditions however, with many different providers tying their customers to annual or biannual contracts. This can be due to companies either aiming to retain business or special deals where they offer free installation in return to a year of guaranteed service.

If you are considering the switch from one broadband provider to another, whether to move to a cheaper deal or an upgraded connection, consult with the company you are switching to so see if any new equipment is needed or if a migration charge applies. Changing a connection to a different provider or a faster speed of service may require engineering work, and this may need to be covered in terms of an extra cost.

Be sure to have all the details sorted out before making the final decision to switch providers, including how much downtime there might be in your connection and what the terms and conditions of the new service are.
