Connection types

Standard broadband (ADSL) is the most basic, with low top speeds of 8-17Mbps. Speeds are often much lower at busy times of day, or if you live more than 1 mile from the exchange.

Fibre broadband (FTTC / Cable) uses a mix of fibre and copper wiring to deliver a faster, more reliable connection. Most advertise top speeds of 76Mbps, while Virgin’s cable network can go to 350Mbps.

Fibre-to-home broadband (FTTP) offers the highest speeds by running full-fibre cables right into your property. FTTP is currently only available to a very limited number of households.

Average speeds

Broadband speeds are now advertised using an average figure, representing the speed achieved by at least 50% of users at peak times.

You may not be able to receive the displayed speed on your connection. Actual speeds will vary by location, but each provider should be able to test your line and give you a more accurate indication of the speed you will achieve.

Gigabit broadband at over 1000Mbps is only available on ‘full-fibre’ or ‘fibre-to-premises’ connections. This connection type is currently only available to a very limited number of households in the UK. We recommend you search using your postcode to check availability.

Monthly data limit:

?

Data caps

Some providers offer deals with a set quantity of data per month. These deals are rare nowadays for home broadband, as with the advent of HD and 4K video and game streaming, many users will not wish to be limited.

However capped data deals can be cheaper than unlimited ones, so it may be worth considering if you’re not a big streamer.

Deal options

Contract length:

?

Contract terms

Broadband deals are now offered with a range of different contract lengths.

If you find a particularly cheap deal, it can be a good plan to lock it in for 18 months.

If instead you prefer flexibility, 1-month / no-contract broadband deals are fantastic choice, though they do tend to cost more up front.

Gifts & rewards:

?

Free Gifts / Rewards / Cashback

Some deals are offered with additional incentives such as cashback, gift cards, or trendy tech.

We don’t subtract the value of these extras when calculating the overall first-year costs of each deal – but you might wish to weigh up how much the gift is worth to you when making a decision.

Calls bundles

If you’re the type to spend hours chatting on the landline, you can make huge savings by bundling your calls in with your broadband.

Most providers offer a range of calls packages, so whether you’re after the odd evening gossip, or a marathon mid-day gabfest, you should be able to find something to suit.

Always check the provider’s terms – some numbers may not be included in your free call-time.

TV options

Add a TV bundle:

?

TV bundles

For many of us, TV and broadband now go hand in hand. So why not bundle up and grab a deal that covers both?

‘Freeview +’ packages include the usual free-to-air channels available on freeview/freesat, usually with the addition of a small number of premium channels or tv-on-demand apps.

‘Premium’ packages are those that include a wider range of premium or subscription channels, often including specialist bundles for sport, cinema or kids tv.

Most TV packages also include some sort of set-top-box to allow recording/rewinding live broadcasts, but some such as NowTV are sold simply as subscriptions to stream online or through Smart TV devices.

TV channel filters

If there’s a particular channel you just can’t do without, you can use this filter to find deals which include it.

Please be aware that providers may change the channels available with any given package without prior warning. While we work hard to maintain up-to-date channel lists, you should always check availability with the provider before making any purchase.

Cost formats & sorting

You can choose how the price of each deal is displayed. All prices include line-rental.

Monthly cost is the total cost per month at the beginning of the contract. Some deals will revert to a higher price after an initial offer period.

First year cost is the estimated total cost of the first 12 months on this broadband deal. Comparing first year costs can sometimes give a more accurate idea of how much you will pay overall.

You can also sort your results by price or speed, high to low or low to high.

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.
