How to compare broadband providers
- Price For most people, price is the most important factor when they’re choosing their broadband. Prices vary depending on the type of broadband you go for and whether you want to include TV or phone.
- Broadband speed The speed you can get will depend on the type of broadband available where you live and whether or not you use WiFi.
- Broadband providers in your area In certain areas, fibre & superfast broadband providers may not be operating. If the broadband you want is not available, consider other smaller providers who specialise in rural broadband.
- Broadband bundles Do you make calls on your house phone and love watching TV? If so, going for a provider that offers TV and broadband or home phone and broadband packages could save you money.
- Contract Length Most broadband providers have contracts between 12 and 18 months, with a 14-day cooling-off period, during which you can cancel free of charge. If you need a shorter contract, some providers do offer a 30-day plan.
