Broadband deals come in many shapes and sizes. Choosing the right one depends on your specific needs. For families, this means how big your family is, and what your family members use the internet for.
The bigger your family and the more gadgets there are in your home connected to the internet, the faster your broadband will need to be. When you’re all online together, you are sharing the bandwidth, meaning you’ll each get much lower speeds than the maximum speed advertised on your broadband deal. If you live in a household with five members or more, you should get a superfast broadband deal with average speeds of 67Mbps or more.
If your children are grown up but still live at home, chances are they are online pretty frequently. If they only use the internet to scroll through Instagram, they may be classed as a light user, but if they like to stream movies, TV shows or music, or they play online games, they would be a medium or heavy user. All internet users can be divided into three categories:
If you have a small family of light users, you may get away with a cheaper, slower broadband package. But if you have a family of medium or heavy users, you will need a fast, fibre-optic connection if you all want to be online simultaneously.
If you are looking for the best broadband package to suit all your family’s needs, you have come to the right place. Simply enter your postcode into our broadband comparison tool to compare broadband deals where you live.
