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.

Landline options

Add a calls bundle:

?

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.

Everything you need to know about Plusnet

Originally an independent broadband provider based in Sheffield, Plusnet were bought out by BT in 2007. They still run as an independent company and continue to rely on their Yorkshire brand.

Most Plusnet deals tend towards the cheaper end of the market, focusing on value and simple pricing rather than all the bells and whistles.

All home broadband deals come with unlimited usage. Some traffic management may take place on your Plusnet connection – see which providers do this, and how it could affect you, here.

Broadband is available on 12 month contracts or for more flexibility, on a 30-day rolling contract.

Plusnet is one of the only providers to offer these shorter broadband contracts.

What can you get with Plusnet?

ADSL broadband

Plusnet offers unlimited ADSL broadband at maximum speeds of 17Mbps.

Calls

Yes. Calls packages are available. You can get Line Rental only, which gives you a phone line but no calls bundled in, or you can add Evening and Weekends or Anytime Calls for £4 a month or £8 a month respectively.

Mobiles

Existing Plusnet SIM Only customers can get a discount if they’re also with Plusnet for home broadband too. See Plusnet 4G SIM Only deals on our sister site SIMOnlyDeals.co.uk.

It is aimed at the value end of the market with cheap data complete with excellent call coverage throughout the UK.

Plusnet uses the EE network so you know you’ll be getting the fastest data speeds.

Fibre broadband

Plusnet offer two kinds of fibre broadband: Unlimited Fibre at 38Mbps and Unlimited Fibre Extra at 76Mbps.

TV

Plusnet offers TV packages through Youview. You will need to be a home phone and fibre broadband customer with Plusnet to access this, though.

Just watch out on the contract length, too. Each Youview box comes on an 18 month contract, so if you have a 12 month broadband deal you’ll need to renew it to carry on watching the channels you get.

A Youview TV box gives you 70 Freeview channels and BT Sport Lite. You also get 20 entertainment channels including MTV, SyFy, UK Gold and Discovery Channel.

You can watch all of the major on-demand apps including BBC iPlayer, ITV Player and All4 and using the Youview box you can scroll back 7 days, as well as being able to pause and rewind live TV.

A standard Youview box costs £5 a month and comes with a £5.99 up front cost.

The Youview+ box is also £5 a month but costs an extra £57.99 up front. With this you get all the Freeview channels along with the ability to record up to 150 hours of HD TV.

Business broadband

No Plusnet business broadband packages available as of November 2017.

Why choose Plusnet?

Plusnet has some of the best-value broadband packages with decent cost-benefit ratio. Customer service is well-rated.
