Frequently Asked Questions

Ultimately, whether you should or should not get fibre broadband depends on the person and what their requirements are. For a lot of people in this modern day, having fast internet is a must and thus, fibre broadband is what they should be using. However, if you’re the kind of user that only uses the internet for casual web surfing, or you only use it from time to time, then you might want to weigh up the costs of fibre broadband against the potential benefits you’ll be gaining. Overall however, fibre internet is sure to enhance your internet experience for almost anything you do.

A “good speed” typically depends on the type of usage. For example, if you’re just using the internet on a casual basis just to check your email and other things, you could probably get away with having a broadband speed of around 30mbps. However, if you’re someone that requires a good internet speed for your work, study or for your Netflix binging sessions, then you may want to opt for a plan that will give you speeds of up to 100mbps. Broadband speeds above 100mbps are perfect for those heavy streamers or hardcore gamers that are affected by buffering or slow speeds.

Absolutely not. If you’re finding that your home phone has become a waste and you’ve resorted to only using your mobile phone for all external calls, then by all means you can choose to get a broadband plan without a landline phone! These plans are called naked broadband plans and you’ll generally be paying less for these plans as you won’t have to pay for the additional cost of the active phone line.

Found your perfect broadband plan? Excellent! All you need to do is select the plan you want, and we’ll take you to your chosen internet provider’s website where you can fill in all of your details to make the switch.
