Switching is easy! 

  • Our broadband does not require a landline. Our full fibre broadband doesn’t use BT’s old phone lines, unlike TalkTalk, BT, Sky and most broadband providers. We use our own dedicated fibre optic network that we built with our own hands. That means no hidden phone line charges either. Woohoo!
  • Cancel your subscription with your existing provider; see our handy guide in the FAQs below.

During this new lockdown period we continue to sell, install and service our 100% full fibre broadband, whilst at the same time, taking the appropriate and additional safety measures to protect our customers and employees. For more information click here

How do I cancel with my existing provider?

You’ll usually need to give 30 days’ notice and pay for your final month (check your contract first). It’s so easy that we’re giving you a letter to get you started.

Choose the cancellation letter for your provider below, complete the blanks with:

  • Your address
  • Today's date
  • The services you wish to cancel
  • Your account number
  • Your name (this must be the account holder's name)

Then download it, print it, sign it and pop it in the post. Easy peasy!

NOTE: Community Fibre cannot be held responsible if your existing provider fails to cancel your services. The cancellation of your existing services is your responsibility.

Where will everything go?

Our engineer will try to place the router as central as possible to maximise WiFi coverage around your home. The router will need to be close to a power socket. We will fit a maximum of two Community Fibre wall sockets (this is subject to how far away the router is placed from the entry point) where your router will be connected to our service.

No! Our full fibre broadband doesn’t use BT’s old phone lines, unlike TalkTalk, BT, Sky and most broadband providers. We use our own dedicated fibre optic network that we built with our own hands. That means no hidden phone line charges either. Woohoo!

As we are a full-fibre network, only properties in our network catchment area will be able to get connected to Community Fibre. Please use click here to confirm your eligibility. From here, you’ll be taken through the steps to choose your installation date and time if you are eligible.

If we don’t yet service your property then you can’t use our full fibre broadband. However, you can register your interest and we’ll contact you to let you know when we plan to install in your area.

Yes, absolutely! Providing our service is available in your area, you can switch to Community Fibre. If you have questions regarding installation during COVID-19 please see our Installation Process FAQs

Installation of your service will require a home visit by one of our engineers. Due to COVID-19, the engineer will take increased hygiene precautions including using new disposable gloves for each appointment and ensuring that their hands are thoroughly sanitised between appointments. We will also ask you to observe at least 2m social distancing whilst they are there.

Email our Customer Service Team on [email protected] or call 0800 082 0770 as soon as you move in. We might be able to connect you remotely if there’s a router there, or we’ll arrange for an engineer to visit as soon as possible.
