Hyperoptic Broadband

Hyperoptic offers lighting fast broadband and stable connection at a very low price. However, its full fibre broadband network (fibre to the home) is only available in select UK cities.

Hyperoptic broadband

  • Hyperoptic is one of the full fibre broadband providers that offers symmetrical speeds (same download and upload speeds).
  • It offers two options – broadband only and broadband and phone, with flexible contract options and no upfront fee required for select plans.
  • Hyperoptic broadband is truly unlimited and comes with Nokia Hyperhub router (dual band, 802.11ac, Mesh WiFi).
  • You can choose from 24 / 12 / 1 month contract options.

Hyperoptic Routers

Hyperoptic broadband currently uses two different wireless routers, both come with built-in fibre broadband modems and the latest wireless features such as dual-band and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11 ac).

  • The ZTE Hyperhub is the standard router offered with superfast broadband packages (30Mbps – 150Mbps) 
  • The Nokia Hyperhub is the premium router included with ultrafast broadband packages (500Mbps and 900Mbps)

Hyperoptic routers

  • The main difference is that the Nokia Hyperhub supports mesh networking and Wi-Fi band steering technology, which the ZTE Hyperhub does not support.
  • Both routers can support ultrafast speeds and are dual-band, but the Nokia Hyperhub has extra MIMO on each channel to connect more devices.
  • Nokia Hyperhub can handle faster speeds than ZTE Hyperhub (2920Mbps vs 1167Mbps).
  • The Nokia Hyperhub has 7 antennas, while the ZTE Hyperhub has only 4 antennas.

What is Nokia WiFi Mesh technology?

Mesh WiFi systems help users to extend WiFi connections in their homes with the help of WiFi extenders or WiFi discs.

Features of Nokia WiFi Mesh

  • Nokia Hyperhub routers have built-in support for Mesh WiFi systems.
  • You can connect WiFi extenders like Nokia Beacon 1 and Nokia Beacon 3 to your router to remove WiFi black spots in your home.
  • This ensures you can connect more devices to the router and get reliable WiFi speeds in all rooms.
