If your premise has access to fibre broadband, you will need to order a fibre broadband service from a broadband provider.

There are a number of providers to choose from; most of these also offer bundles where you get phone, broadband and TV all for a fixed monthly fee. There are various comparison sites available to help you choose the best provider for you.

Once you have signed up, your retail service provider will arrange for an installation of your connection, and probably provide you with a wireless router, so you can access your internet via an Ethernet cable, or via roaming wirelessly around your house.
