Broadband Setup and Installation: How Long Does It Take & Engineer Visits

It normally takes 2 weeks to get home broadband set up. Alternatively, plug & play setup on the next working day is available from Three Broadband.

In the UK, it usually takes around two weeks to get a home broadband service set up with the traditional fixed-line providers (including fibre broadband, cable broadband and ADSL broadband providers).

In some cases, an engineer visit will also be required for setting up the service. Permission from the home owner might also be required for any works that need to be done during setup (e.g. if a cable needs to be laid to your home).

As an alternative that’s both faster and easier to set up, you can also consider Three’s 4G & 5G home broadband service. Three offers next working day delivery of their 4G and 5G broadband hubs, with a simple plug-and-play setup that doesn’t require an engineer visit. This makes it a lot faster to get your broadband service set up, without the two week delay and the wait for an engineer visit.
