About Ultra Fibre Optic (UFO)

No ratings

Remember when broadband landed and it felt like the future was here? Well, the arrival of Ultra Fibre Optic takes the Internet to another level. Find out all you need to know about the benefits of UFO, hear from some of our very happy customers and see how you can place your order. 


It's the only broadband you'll ever need

Here are some of the benefits you can expect from UFO.


UFO's full fibre connection brings ultrafast speeds of more than 900Mb into your home. So you’ll always get the best speed your phones, TVs, laptops and tablets can handle, when they’re online at the same time.



All other fibre broadband still uses old copper phone wires for part of the way. UFO has a new level of reliability so everyone gets the best performance even when they’re online together.


UFO is totally unlimited so you can browse the web with peace of mind. We'll never slow you down, even at peak times, so you can enjoy a lightning fast connection all day, every day.



York is getting exclusive access to the future of the internet before the rest of the UK, although we'll soon be heading to other cities too. You can check availability in your area and sign up on the UFO website.

Don't just take our word for it

Over 90% of our customers say that they are satisfied with the UFO experience. Take a look.
