What is the cheapest broadband deal?
Cheapest broadband deals change regularly as broadband providers compete with each other to get customers.
What often looks like the best rate is often an introductory rate, so always check the full rate once the discount period ends unless you plan to switch once your contract ends. The more services you bundle together, the more you could potentially save, but only pay for what you’re sure you will use.
The best way to find the cheapest deal is to use our broadband checker to find low cost broadband where you live.
How to compare broadband providers
To help you compare what each provider offers, you should consider:
- Price: Check the introductory discount period and cost for the whole contract term, to find the cheapest deal. Prices vary depending on the type of broadband you go for, the speed it offers, and whether you want to bundle with home phone and TV too.
- Broadband speed: The speed you can get will depend on the type of broadband connection you choose, and what’s available in your area. Find out more about the average broadband speed in Ireland and work out what speed you’ll need based on the activities you do.
- Broadband providers in your area: In certain areas, fibre & superfast broadband may not have been rolled out yet, or you may be limited to just one provider who offers it. If the broadband you want isn’t available yet, consider other types and smaller providers who specialise in rural broadband.
- Broadband bundles: If you want a home phone or TV package as well as broadband, bundling the services together could save you money. Find a provider that offers the best TV and broadband or home phone and broadband package for your needs.
- 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. Some providers also offer shorter 30 day contracts but you’ll usually pay more.
