Hyperoptic provides fast broadband in select towns and cities across the UK. Read on to see how its routers stack up and whether they make it worth switching providers.

How to get a Hyperoptic router

To get a Hyperoptic router, you’ll need to sign up for Hyperoptic broadband. With impressive online reviews, amazing full fibre speeds and excellent customer service, it’s the real deal.

However, it’s only available in 57 towns and cities at the time of writing, covering roughly 750,000 homes. Use the MoneySuperMarket postcode checker to see if you can get it now.

Which is the latest Hyperoptic router?

Hyperoptic offers two main routers for its full fibre broadband services, both branded as the Hyperhub.

Its 50Mbps and 150Mbps deals come with a ZTE made model, while Nokia provides the router for faster 500Mbps and 1GB plans.

Since early 2022, Hyperoptic has also offered a dedicated ‘mesh’ service, utilising ZTE and Nokia extenders to bring WiFi further into the home.

Does Hyperoptic replace old routers for free?

Hyperoptic will give you a new router if you sign up for one of its full fibre deals. However, older routers should work well with its FTTP services, meaning there should be no need to replace one, unless it’s faulty.

Legacy Hyperoptic routers

Hyberhub Tilgin HG2381

This router has ac standard WiFi but is a single band model, meaning it’s been surpassed by the Nokia and ZTE Hyperhubs currently in use.

If you want a newer model, it’s worth contacting Hyperoptic for an upgrade.
