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.

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 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?

TV packages often come with sophisticated set-top boxes to let you pause and record live TV, as well as subscriptions to broadcast and streaming-on-demand services.

Calls

Evening and Weekend calls can be added for just £4 a month which allows you to make calls to UK landlines and Mobiles numbers Mon-Fri between 19:00 and 07:00 and all day Saturday/Sunday. 

Anytime Landline adds £8 to your monthly bill and includes free calls to local and national numbers along with standard UK mobile numbers. Anytime Plus comes in at an extra £12 a month and includes free calls to UK Landlines and UK mobiles and also gives International calls to landline in 35 countries.

For Line Rental Only, local and national numbers cost 15p per minute. On all inclusive call packages, there is a 70 minute maximum call duration, most other providers have a 60 minute duration, after that are charged at 12p per minute but you can hang up and re-dial to avoid incurring charges. Calls to mobiles are charged at 15p per minute for Line Rental Only and are included when calling during an Evening/Weekend package or Anytime calls package. As with the landline calls on inclusive call packages they have a 70 minute maximum call duration so don’t forget to hang up and re-dial.

Mobiles

SSE do not sell individual mobile calls packages as these are included if you select an inclusive call bundle.

Fibre broadband

There are two kinds of fibre broadband where it is available: Unlimited Fibre, which is up to 38Mbps and Unlimited Fibre Plus, up to 76Mbps.
