Should you get a 12 month broadband deal?

A 12 month plan means you do not have to be tied to one supplier for more than a year, and getting the right deal could save you money on your broadband.

How to find the best deal

Use our comparison to find the best 12 month broadband deal by looking at:

  • Cost: Many suppliers offer free or discounted broadband for the first 6 or 12 months of your contract. You may find that the monthly cost increases after the first year, but then you can look at switching supplier to find the best offer.
  • Speed: This affects how quickly you access things online and is measured in megabits (Mb). Use our postcode checker to see if you can get faster fibre broadband where you live. The Ofcom website also lets you check broadband speeds in your area.
  • Download limit: This caps how much you can use the internet each month, and the limit you choose should be based on what type of user you are.

Is broadband ever free?

While you may not pay for your broadband for the first 6 or 12 months, you will still have to pay line rental if your service is supplied through a BT phone line.

Although your broadband will not be totally free, you can save on your overall cost by taking advantage of introductory offers.

Some broadband providers offer vouchers and subscriptions when you sign up for a 12 month contract. While this can be tempting, go for the cheapest deal that offers the right service for you, over a lesser package just because it includes freebies.

Consider other costs

Your broadband might be free for part of your contract, but you may still have to pay:

  • Line rental: This is included in your monthly cost because you usually need a working landline to get broadband.
  • Up-front costs: You may need to pay a one-off charge to cover setup and installation, and your broadband provider may also charge you for equipment like your router. These costs will vary from as little as £9.99 to more than £50 with some broadband and TV packages, so use our comparison to check.

* The "average" speed displayed in Mb represents the speed available to 50% of customers with this product during peak time (between 8pm and 10pm). The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non fibre-optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up — this may differ from the average speed displayed on our table.
