Hyperoptic is quite a different broadband provider from BT or Virgin Media, because, it does not offer just superfast speeds, but, offers ultra fast speeds of 1Gbps (user average 900Mbps) which is nearly 2 times faster than Virgin Media’s fastest residential broadband service.

Hyperoptic broadband speeds are more reliable and do not slow down at peak times.
