Broadband type: ?

Standard or ADSL broadband is the most basic type of broadband connection, and is available nearly everywhere in the UK. Top speed is usually around 17Mbps but actual speeds can be much lower, particularly if you live more than a mile from the exchange.

Fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) broadband, often just called Fibre, as well as Virgin's Cable broadband network, use a mixture of fibre-optic and copper wiring to deliver higher speeds. Most fibre providers offer top speeds of 76Mbps, while Virgin's cables can achieve up to 300Mbps.

Fibre-to-home broadband, sometimes known as FTTP or Full-Fibre offers the highest speeds by running fibre-optic cables all the way into your property. Currently this type of broadband is only available to a very limited number of households in the UK. Enter your postcode to check availability.

Everything you need to know about BT

BT, or British Telecom, is the oldest, most established and best recognised broadband provider in the UK.

BT broadband is aimed at the mid-market, so you won’t find the industry’s cheapest deals here.

BT tend to increase their prices after the minimum 18 month contract is up, so it’s worth keeping an eye on the deals available elsewhere if you’re coming to the end of your contract.

All BT broadband comes on an 18 month contract as standard. BT Call Protect to keep out unwanted or nuisance callers is enacted on your BT phone line as standard.

You’ll have to pay some up front costs for your router and likely an activation fee as well. Postage and packaging is not included.

To offset these extra costs BT occasionally offer free prepaid Reward Cards ranging in value from £50 to £120.

While BT broadband is extremely well established, a note of fair warning: it often tops the most complained about provider lists and does not come with an unblemished reputation for customer service.

What can you get with BT?

ADSL broadband

BT has unlimited ADSL broadband at maximum speeds of 17Mbps.

Calls

Yes. Every BT broadband package comes with some form of free calls package.

Weekend Calls to landlines are included as standard across the range.

Adding Evening and Weekend landline calls costs an extra £3.80 a month.

Anytime Calls to landlines comes in at an extra £6.99 a month. Be aware this Anytime Calls cost will increase to £8.99 a month if you go beyond your initial 18 month contract with BT.

Mobiles

BT has a wealth of SIM Only and contract phone deals available, including mulitple SIMs and discounted family plans. BT uses the EE network for voice calls and data. See all the latest BT SIM Only deals here.

Fibre broadband

BT have two kinds of fibre, Unlimited Infinity 1 at 52Mbps and Unlimited Infinity 2 at 76Mbps.

BT is the only provider on the market to artificially cap its fibre speed at 52Mbps.

In October 2017 BT announced that existing Infinity 1 customer would get a free upgrade to 76Mbps along with an extra 100GB of cloud storage.

New customers still have the option of buying 52Mbps Infinity 1.

TV

BT TV is a subscription service added on to BT Broadband. You will need Fibre services to access some of the channels available, including any HD channels. BT recommend a download speed of at least 30Mbps for AMC and Sky Sports HD channels.

Just watch out for the small print: if you stop your service in the first year, BT will charge you up to £99.

You’ll also need at least 12 months left on your broadband package to take BT TV. If not, you will have to recontract with BT broadband to get access to their TV deals.

You can add Netflix to BT TV and if you watch using your Youview box it won’t take up any of your broadband data. If you watch Netflix on your laptop or phone then it will count towards your broadband data usage.

BT TV Starter

TV Starter is BT’s lowest cost option and includes a Youview box with 80 Freeview channels and BT Sport included. You get all the standard BBC and ITV channels and their HD equivalents, along with American premium channel AMC, BT Sport 1, 2, 3 and BT Sport ESPN. Your Yourview box can pause and rewind live TV, but there’s no record option available at this level.

Entertainment TV

100 channels are on offer here with the upgraded Youview+ box. You get all of the standard Freeview channels, along with a couple of extra premium channels like UK Gold, Syfy and MTV. You can pause, rewind and record live TV. BT Sport does not come as standard but you can add it for an extra £3.50 a month.

Max TV

BT’s most comprehensive TV package with 141 channels available and HD versions of the channels in the Entertainment package. It comes with all the standard Freeview channels along with a range of premium kids channels like Nickelodeon, The Disney Channel and Boomerang

This is where you will find BT Sport 4K Ultra HD – if your internet connection can support it. For normal viewing you’ll need consistent download speeds above 5Mbps. As mentioned above, for some of the Sky Sports HD channels and AMC you will need at least 30Mbps.

Business broadband

BT offers a range of business broadband deals, promising unlimited free WiFi with 24/7 tech support.

Why choose BT?

BT has one of the largest broadband networks in the UK so it may be your only option if you live in a rural area.

While it can’t compete on price with some of the budget operators on the market, if you’re a sports addict then BT Sport is where the party is at.

Some people feel more comfortable buying from the most established broadband name in the business but watch your bills because BT likes its paid add-on extras.
