General reason: people don't do their homework to find the best possible options.

Other possibilities:

- better deal negociated with BT

- Hyperoptic doesn't offer TV or phone packages (besides a phone line)

- bad experience with another provider

- Openreach ONT was already installed when they moved in (was my case) and they followed the path of least resistance to get a connection (brings us back to the general reason)
