From renters to homeowners to business owners, everyone wants to get the best broadband deal possible. But first you need to work out what ‘the best’ really means for you. Luckily, whatever it is you want, we’re here to help you find it.
Whether you need a fibre optic connection for streaming Netflix, super stable broadband to keep your business connected or a bundle that provides all the entertainment you need, our comparison service will help you out.
As with many things, there’s no one-size-fits-all best broadband deal available. Which is lucky for us, since otherwise we’d be out of a job. No, choosing a broadband package is a highly personal affair - like picking a favourite colour, or naming your first-born child.
Just as you’re the expert on you, we’re the experts on broadband, and by combining our knowledge, we can make sure that you end up with a deal that you like, at a price you’ll love (as much as anyone can love paying for something, that is).
So, ask yourself: what do I want from my broadband? Is it speed? Unlimited usage? The lowest price possible?
Maybe you’re not sure, so ask yourself another question: how am I going to use my broadband?
Are you a gamer? Do you download or stream a lot of films? Will you just be going online for the occasional email?
Let’s have a look at the kinds of packages available, and the kinds of users they’re good for, to help you decide which will be best for you.
Some broadband packages will limit the amount of data that you can download each month (for example Sky offer a deal with a 25gb limit). Importantly, it’s not just actual downloading files that will eat into this allowance - all browsing and streaming counts.
If you’re a light user (i.e. you’re not downloading or streaming lots of films or music), then opting for a cheaper package with a usage limit should be OK.
Bear in mind that an average HD film will take up 3-5GB of space, so your allowance could get used up quickly if you’re not careful.
Nowadays, most broadband packages you’ll get will offer unlimited downloads, meaning you’re free to use your internet as you please. These will generally be subject to fair use policies though - see HERE for more details.
Unlimited usage broadband deals are good for: pretty much everyone but the lightest of users.
Speed is important to most users - it’s the headline stat that most broadband providers tend to give when they advertise their deals.
A higher speed connection will give you an improved browsing experience all round, but it’s particularly noticeable for those who stream a lot of content, and for those who play games online, when every split second counts.
Super-fast broadband comes through fibre optic cables, whereas conventional internet comes through copper cables. For this reason, super-fast broadband is only available in areas where fibre cables have already been installed.

Super-fast fibre optic broadband deals are good for: gamers, users who stream a lot of content online.
Most broadband providers nowadays offer bundle deals with TV packages thrown in with an internet connection and the phone line that tends to accompany it. This includes big hitters like Sky, Virgin and BT, who have offered TV services for a while, but also competitors like Now TV, whose on-demand TV service preceding their broadband offering.
If you watch a lot of TV, then it makes sense to opt for one of these deals, and most of the time you can customise the TV package you get to suit your viewing habits.
However, if you watch most of your TV using an on-demand service like Netflix, Now TV or Amazon Instant Video, then getting a live TV package as well can prove false economy. Add up the costs, weigh up the pros and cons, and decide for yourself if this kind of deal is worth it for you.
Broadband, TV and phone deals are good for: users who watch a lot of live TV.
Most of the time, broadband providers will price their deals so that they are more or less forcing you to get a phone line along with your internet connection, even if your internet comes through fibre optic cables.
The thing is, very few people still use a landline. If you can see a good deal that forgoes the line rental, it’s worth going for, but it’s not something to stress over too much. If you’re going for broadband with TV, then you’ll almost invariably pay less overall if you get a phone line as well.
Broadband without line rental is good for: users who really don’t want a land line.
