We can also advise you on what router and/or networking hardware you may require. Please contact us for more information or to discuss your individual requirements.

Requirements for Broadband/ADSL

In order to connect to broadband you require a router. This is the broadband equivalent of a modem and is what connects your computer(s) to the phone line. The router connects to your computer network socket via an ethernet lead. Although a connecting lead is supplied with all our routers, please ensure that you have a suitable network card fitted in your computer. Most modern computers have these built-in, but some of the older Acorn machines may require one fitting before you can connect to broadband. You should consult your computer manufacturer or supplier if you need to purchase a network card.

Because broadband sends data down your phone line at high speed, various line checks need to be carried out on your phone line in order to make sure it's compatible with our broadband products. We will carry these out as part of the connection/setup. We will notify you if we discover an incompatibility with your line, and in most cases we should be able to offer an alternative solution, such as a lower speed. However, in reality you should find that most residential BT lines in the UK can support at least 500 Kbps broadband, or will be able to by the end of the year.

Migrating from another broadband supplier

If you are migrating from another broadband supplier we will be pleased to welcome you to Orpheus, however, in order to ensure a smooth migration we require what's known as a MAC (Migration Authority Code) number from your existing ADSL supplier. Once we receive this, we can carry out your migration automatically from our end.

** Monthly inclusive data download. Additional 'top ups' are available and you can switch tariff if you find your usage goes up or down. View our fair use policy for more details.
