Switching your broadband provider is a less painful exercise than it used to be. Before you begin the process, it's definitely worth making sure that you're outside of your contract tie-in with your current broadband provider. If you aren't then you will face a financial penalty and will probably be required to pay for each month that you have left on your contract. If you would like to switch broadband provider and your contract has ended, there is no need to contact your existing supplier. The switching process is triggered by the broadband provider that you have decided to move to. The exception to this rule is if you want to switch to a Virgin Media fibre broadband deal
. Unlike other broadband providers, Virgin Media Fibre doesn't use copper phone line cables to deliver it’s broadband. So, if you want to switch to a Virgin Media package, you will need to notify your current broadband provider after Virgin have given you an install date. This way your broadband disruption will be minimal. If you're ready to start looking for a better broadband deal, just enter your postcode into our broadband postcode calculator
