Top broadband FAQs
During this busy time, we want to make sure we can help customers who really need us. So we’d appreciate it if you only contact us if it’s really critical. We've put together a few tips that we hope might save you a long wait trying to get through to us.
Having trouble with your broadband?
Check your service status
If you’re experiencing technical problems with your broadband service, including no connection or Wi-Fi connectivity issues, your first step should be to sign in to your account and check your service status.
You can run your own line test to see if there are any known issues with the broadband in your area, and even book an engineer for any external line fault detected without the need to contact us.
