Frequently asked questions:
I have problems with my broadband connection, how can I fix this?
There are a few options to improve the connection:
- Switch your Hub off (and Openreach modem if you have one), wait five minutes. Turn on your Hub again (Turn on the Openreach modem before this if you have one). Wait for a couple of minutes.
- Check online to see if there is any work being done in your area that could effect your connection.
- Check all the plugs and cable to ensure everything is plugged in properly
- If you keep losing wireless connection, your Hub could be out of range
- Check to see if your phone line is working. Plug in a phone and attempt to make a call. If you cannot make a call, you won’t have a connection for your broadband.
- Check the troubleshooting wizard online – If you still have problems after trying these options, give customer service a call or ask for help on the forums online.

To avoid paying a call-out and repair fee, check the service status in your area yourself by using the website and entering your phone number. This will give you details on any work being done in your areas or if your line is effected by any else (weather, etc..). Otherwise you could end up paying £129.99 for an engineer to come out to you.
