Will I need a new router?
You’ll need a router to get up and running, but don’t worry. If you’re a new customer you’ll receive either our Hub 3 or Hub 5 – depending on whether you’re going for broadband or superfast fibre broadband.
If you’re an existing broadband customer and you’ve upgraded to superfast fibre broadband, we’ll send you out a brand new Hub 5.
If you’re an existing broadband or superfast broadband customer and you want to change your monthly subscription, but not the type of broadband (broadband or superfast broadband) you’re using, then you can carry on using the hub you already have. This saves you the hassle of installing a new one.
Why do we have different prices?
Our costs vary from place to place so depending on where your business is, you may see higher, or lower, prices.
All of our Unlimited and Premium subscriptions come with Prompt Care service as standard.
This means that in the unlikely event that you have a problem, if you report it before 6pm we’ll aim to fix it by the end of the next working day, Monday to Saturday.
If we're late in fixing the fault, you may be eligible to claim £25 off your next bill through our Customer Service Compensation Scheme.
Here’s the detail:
We aim to fix faults reported Monday to Saturday by 23.59 on the next working day.
The broadband Customer Service Compensation Scheme covers BT Business Broadband Unlimited, BT Business Broadband Premium, BT Business Infinity Unlimited and BT Business Infinity Unlimited.
- You must have reported the fault to us (and have a fault reference number).
- Make sure you claim within 90 days of us fixing the fault.
- If your claim is successful, we’ll credit your next bill with £25.
- Check the full details of the scheme if you want to know more (and to read about the exclusions to it).
If you choose one of our plans with a data allowance: BT Business Broadband or BT Business Infinity, and you let us know there's a problem before 6pm, we'll aim to get it fixed within two working days.
Engineer appointments are between 8am and 1pm, and between 1pm and 6pm, Monday to Friday. We don’t make appointments for bank holidays.
The engineer will arrive to start the work during these times. They may not finish the work until after the end of the time slot.
The engineer will install your superfast broadband and will connect one computer to the network.

Tell me more about the speeds I can get with superfast fibre broadband
There are several factors that can affect your speed, including:
- Distance between your premises and your telephone exchange
- Distance between your installation point and the green cabinet in the street
- The condition, length, and amount of your internal wiring
- The equipment you’re using
You'll get a more consistent speed with fibre broadband than you would with standard broadband.
