Use our comparison above to find the best deal by comparing:

  • Download limits: This is measured in gigabytes (GB) and the higher your limit, the more you can access online. Read our guide to data limits for more information.

  • Download speeds: A higher speed (Mb) gives you faster internet access. Fibre broadband offers the fastest connection but is only available in parts of the UK.

  • Inclusive calls: You can include weekend, evening or anytime calls. You will have to pay line rental and you may need to pay extra for calls not included in your package.

Will a longer contract save you money?

You could take out a contract for 12 months or more if you are happy to be tied to the same provider for that long.

However, this could make it difficult if you need to switch supplier before your contract ends, as you may have to pay early exit charges.

Are there any extra costs?

This depends on which supplier you choose, but you may have to pay:

  • Setup and installation charges if your phone line needs activating, or if your supplier is laying cable to your home

  • Equipment costs for things like a wireless router

Unlimited or truly unlimited?

You should consider an unlimited data package if you are a heavy internet user or download music and films:

  • Unlimited broadband gives you internet access without data limits. However, you could face speed restrictions if you exceed your supplier's fair usage policy.

  • Truly unlimited lets you use the internet as much as you like without any restrictions on your data or speed. This is better suited if you are a heavy internet user.
