All You Need to Know About Zzoomm’s Services, Doubles and Power-Ups and More!
You can find out about a number of cool things Zzoomm can do for you on this page.
What Zzoomm service do you need?
What’s Double Wi-Fi?
Having double shouldn’t be trouble it should make your life a lot easier by giving you more reliable Wi-Fi coverage across your home. A great place to start is by thinking about how you use the internet, where you use it in your home.
Do you struggle to get a signal in every room? Do you have not-spots?
Double Wi-Fi means you’ll have two Zzoomm Hubs working together to give you more reliability and coverage across your home. You don’t have to perch on the edge of the sofa just to get a signal. Wi-Fi where you want it when you want it!
What is Match?
Match is a Power-Up that gives you symmetrical upload and download speeds. If you regularly upload files, send big files via email or use video-chat such as Skype, then you may want to think about adding Match to your subscription for only £10 extra a month.
What is a Static IP?
An IP address is a number that identifies your computer or device when you use the internet. Think of it like your home address. When you go online, the network uses your IP address to know where to send the information.
An IP address is usually dynamic, meaning that it changes to something different every time your device connects, and that’s just fine!
A Static IP is different as it doesn’t change. It can be assigned to a single device, this has some big benefits. For example, if you host your own mail or games servers, a website, or want to run CCTV, then you may need a Static IP.
We’ve got you covered, a Static IP costs only £10 a month!
When can I place an order?

My address isn’t listed?
We use a national database to look up addresses, however, there may be some addresses that can’t be found. So, if our postcode checker can’t find your address, then please let us know right away and one of our Zzoommers will help.
Why can’t I place an order?
You’ll be able to place an order as soon as your property has been confirmed ready to Zzoomm! If for any reason you cannot place an order on a ready to Zzoomm address, please let us know and we’ll fix it for you right away!
For further information on the installation process, please check the Installation Guide as well.
How will you get it into my property?
We run your Full Fibre connection from a Fibre box, found in the road outside your property, into your home. When you order Zzoomm we’ll talk to you about where you want us to put your Zzoomm Hubs so you get the best possible service.
How easy is it to switch to Zzoomm?
Very easy! Place an order with us and choose your installation date and time. We normally activate your service on the same day that we install your Zzoomm Hubs, but it’s a good idea to keep your current connection for a few days after, just so that you can be sure you’ll stay connected. If you currently subscribe to TV or content from Sky, you can continue to do so. Just switch to one of their TV only bundles.
How much does installation cost?
For most customers installation costs nothing at all! In some special circumstances, we may need to do extra work to install Zzoomm for you but if we do, then we’ll do a survey first and agree on any costs with you before we start work.

General Full Fibre questions
My broadband is fine for now so why are you installing Full Fibre?
Most broadband networks use a mix of fibre and copper. The longer the copper cable to your home or business, the slower and less reliable your internet connection will be. Our network uses fibre all the way to your home so you get the internet at the speed of light, no matter how many people are using it. Our network is designed to be future proof, with enough capacity to cater to anything the future throws at us.
Is fibre safe?
It’s perfectly safe and doesn’t interfere with the environment. Fibre cables transfer information using light. There’s no radiation and no emissions.
The Technology of the Network we are building
We would like to clarify that we are not involved in the development of the 5G network. As we build the Full Fibre Broadband network for Henley-on-Thames, we have received a number of questions regarding 5G and its development in the UK. Our technology is focussed solely on building a Full Fibre optic cable network for reliable and fast broadband. 5G is mobile device technology focused on providing the next generation of national mobile network connectivity.
Fibre capacity & contention ratio
Our network has been designed for the future with an enormous capacity that’s unmatched in across most of the UK. That’s great news for our customers as Zzoomm’s Full Fibre cables have a contention ratio of 20-1 – much lower than any ISP in Henley-on-Thames. We’re the Full Fibre network that gives you more!
How can I contact your customer team?
If you haven’t been able to find the answer to your question on our website, or in our FAQ’s, then you can chat with us via our live chat at the bottom right of the page. Once we’ve taken your details, you’ll be talking to a real person within seconds!
You can also send an email to email@example.com. If you’re a customer, don’t forget to include your address so that we can identify your account as quickly as possible! We aim to reply to all emails within 4 hours, but we’re usually much quicker than that!
If you’d prefer to talk to someone, you can give us a good old-fashioned call on 033 33 11 99 33.
Real people… real support. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!
How do I raise a complaint?
We’re really sorry to hear that you’re not happy. Please let us know what’s wrong as we’d love to fix it! You can give us a call on 033 33 11 99 33 to discuss your concerns, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our full complaint code can be viewed here should you need to refer to it.
ISP Provided Email Accounts
Many broadband services come with a free email address when you sign up. This service addition can create a dilemma when it comes to switching ISPs (Internet Service Providers). Our email accounts are used not just for communication, but commonly to store important information with the companies we have a relationship with.
That means changing an ISP provided email address can sometimes be considered a barrier to switching to a faster, better ISP such as Zzoomm.
The good news is that it needn’t be! You don’t have to lose your email account or your data. Most broadband companies will allow you to switch and keep your email address, although some may charge you a fee for doing so and some may restrict access to it via a web client.
This section takes a look at the various ISP variations and what you need to know about the email addresses provided if you’re planning to switch ISP’s.
At the core of the matter is the question, can you keep your provider-linked email address? The short answer is yes, sometimes — but the real question is, should you?
Keeping your email address when you switch broadband providers
Not all providers will allow you to keep your email address once you switch. For example, the Post Office and Virgin Media will delete your email account once you’ve left.
However, a number of other providers allow you to retain access to your email address for a monthly fee. These fees aren’t fixed by external governing bodies so can be very expensive.
Specific Supplier Examples
Can I keep my email address if I leave BT for Zzoomm?
You can still access your BT email address for 60 days after you switch to a different broadband provider. After that, you’ll have to subscribe to BTs Premium Mail service to retain access. As the name suggests, you’ll need to pay a monthly fee, currently £5 each month for the account. Switching is relatively simple and BT will automatically move your accounts across for you.
I’m switching from Plusnet to Zzoomm, will I lose my Plusnet email account?
If you switch from Plusnet to another provider, you can take your email account with you. Like BT and others, the company will charge a monthly fee and will migrate the account and all emails for you.
Can I ditch Sky to get Zzoomming and keep my email address?
Sky has switched to Sky Yahoo! Mail, which the company claims means you have an “email for life”. It is essentially the free Yahoo! Mail but with Sky branding. That means if you switch from Sky, you’ll be able to keep your email address, and with it all the messages and data you’ve stored in your account. Sky does reserve the right to delete an account if you haven’t used it for 180 days. If Sky closes a “dormant” account, you’ll lose any associated data and content.
I want to switch to Zzoomm from TalkTalk, can I keep my TalkTalk email account?
All TalkTalk broadband customers have TalkTalk Mail included in their package. Should you leave TalkTalk, you can subscribe to TalkTalk Mail Plus and keep your email address, currently for £5 per month or £50 per year. Otherwise, you’ll see your functionality reduce 30 days after you leave, and after 5 months TalkTalk will delete it.
Can I switch from Virgin Broadband to Zzoomm and keep my email account?
Once you give notice to Virgin Media, you’ll have 90 days before your email address is cancelled. After that, Virgin Media will clear out your emails, delete all data associated with your account and shut it down.
You may be with an ISP that we haven’t listed here so the best thing for you to do is contact them directly and ask if you can keep your email address when you switch to Zzoomm.
What’s an alternative: Why not get a free email account that is not tied to a provider?
You don’t need to be tied to any broadband provider with your email account. You can make the switch to a free webmail account. While it might be a hassle in the short term, it will give you the freedom to switch pain-free for years to come.
There are a number of options available including Apple iCloud, Google’s Gmail, Microsoft Outlook (formerly Hotmail) and Yahoo! Mail. The choice you make may depend on the types of devices you have (if you’re using an iPhone versus an Android-Google phone, for example).
It’s also worth bearing in mind that the storage capacity for each may vary, although some will allow you to pay a monthly subscription to increase storage.
Moving your email to Gmail
Visit gmail.com and follow the on-screen instructions. Once you have set up your Gmail account click on the settings menu, (the cog icon in the top right corner).
Click ‘Accounts and Import’ and then Import mail and contacts’.
You’ll need to enter your email address here and follow the on-screen instructions.
Don’t Lose An Address
Once your new email is set up, it’s a good idea to export your contacts from your old account, if you set up a Gmail account you can follow the instructions above. It’s also a good idea to send out an email to your main contacts to let them know you’ll be using a new address from now on.
Forward Your History
It is worth considering setting up a forwarding system in your old account while you are in transition so that new email is automatically forwarded to your new email address, which may seem a bit tricky but is usually found in your inbox settings. This means for new mail you only need to manage one mailbox.
For example, with BT Connect, you would navigate to ‘Manage Services -> Email Summary -> highlight your email address in the box -> click Email Forwarding.
Enter your new Gmail address and click ‘Save’.
Make a Clean Break
Finally, a bit of housekeeping. In order to keep your information secure, it is good practice to delete all your old emails. Then create a new password to ensure that the old account stays secure until it’s finally closed down. It’s best to set up your new email account with your new provider using a new password too.
Set up an auto-responder
If your e-mail service supports this, you might also want to set up an auto-responder for your old email address that lets anyone who contacts you know that their email has been forwarded to a new address.
Update accounts linked to your email address
Depending on how long you’ve had your email address, you may have a lot of additional services linked to this address. Be sure to update as many of your login details as possible while you still have access to your old provider-linked address as you may need to reconfirm the new details and in situations where you forget your login, the reminder email will be sent to an old address if not updated.
Here’s an example checklist of the most common things we would need to update ourselves for instance:
- Streaming services
- Energy and household bill payments
- Online banking
- Online payments
- Social media accounts
- Cloud storage
- Gaming accounts
- Work systems
- Cloud tools
