Decide what's most important to you

Next you need to think about what you need from your broadband package. If you’ve already done all your homework, you can dive straight into our broadband comparison and select the best deal for you. If you’re still uncertain, here are the things you need to be thinking about.

  • Usage – What do you tend to use the internet for? Online shopping, social media, streaming TV, movies, and music, downloading large documents, gaming, etc.
  • Contract – Are you happy with a standard 12 month contract, or are you planning on moving house or experiencing any uncertainty in your life at present, making a month-to-month contract a better option?
  • Users – Will multiple users be accessing your broadband connection, and are they likely to need to use it at the same time?
  • Budget – Do you have a fixed monthly budget to spend on broadband, or can you be flexible on price?
  • Speed – What internet speed will best suit the needs of your household?
  • Bundles – Do you want to combine your landline phone, TV contract, or mobile phone package with your broadband (this can sometimes save you money, and dealing with only one supplier is more convenient).

What’s the fastest broadband in my area?

A fibre optic line will give you the fastest available speeds, allowing for faster downloads and uploads, much smoother streaming experience, and is ideal for impatient gamers.

Most providers operate on the Openreach network and offer similar speeds up to around 65Mbps, which is plenty for most households. Things are getting faster however, as Openreach continues to roll out faster technologies.

Currently, Hyperoptic offers the fastest internet available on the UK market, reaching average speeds of up to 1Gbps on its FTTP (fibre to the premises) network. If you’re a large and busy household that’s online most of the time, a Hyperoptic deal is probably your best option.

Virgin Media now offers similar speeds to far more homes with its Gig1 service. However it's not available to all Virgin Media customers and our testing has shown that despite over 1Gbps arriving at the Virgin Media router, said router is just not good enough to send those speeds around your home, even if connected via a LAN cable.

Virgin does functionally offer the best speeds of any widely available provider regardless, with all other package levels commonly hitting their promised speeds or faster.

Visit our broadband speed test to learn more about average speeds by broadband provider and type, to check your current broadband speed, and to find out what the top speeds are for broadband in your area.

Compare fast broadband

What’s the cheapest broadband in my area?

Standard broadband connections tend to be cheaper than the fibre packages but, as a consequence, are slower and can be subject to usage limits and traffic management policies. This can result in slowdowns during peak periods in order to ensure consistent speed for everyone across the provider's network.

However, for those of you who are general browsers, rather than regular streamers or downloaders, it’s likely you won’t be too concerned by this and will be satisfied that the speeds – and monthly bill – suit you.

Broadband Provider Average Speed Prices From
Shell Energy broadband 11Mb £15.99 per month
NOW Broadband 11Mb £18 per month
Direct Save Telecom broadband 11Mb £18.95 per month
Plusnet broadband 10Mb £18.50 per month
John Lewis broadband 10Mb £20 per month
Origin broadband 11Mb £19.99 per month
TalkTalk broadband 38Mb £20 per month

Fibre vs standard broadband

Once limited in availability and a bit on the expensive side compared to standard broadband, fibre is now the preferred choice, and the norm, for many households.

The technical difference between fibre and standard is quite simple. Standard broadband – the elder of the two – uses old copper cable to transfer data, whereas fibre uses a more modern network of high-speed fibre optic cables that are more resilient. Fibre optic connections cover around 97% of the UK population.

Virgin Media’s Gig1 option is the fastest broadband around, but most providers offer fibre packages averaging 35Mbps. Fibre is much more compatible for those households wanting to connect using a number of devices – phone, laptops etc. – all at the same time without seeing any change in speed. You can find out more about the differences between fibre and standard broadband elsewhere on the site.

Remember, though, the key is not to seek the fastest speeds at all costs. The deal has to be right for your needs and one that is available in your area.

Not sure what speed you need? Check out our guide to broadband speeds to determine what speed will best suit your household.

Broadband providers in my area

There are over 150 broadband providers in the UK to choose from, but the vast majority of those operate only in small local areas, or serve a special purpose such as delivering connectivity to business parks and so on. Within that 150 only a fraction are widely available and so, generally, the ones you should concern yourself with. Here's a breakdown of the most common widely available providers…

  • BT Broadband – A BT broadband deal won’t be the cheapest option, but look out for regular sales, cashback offers, and vouchers from the likes of M&S, Amazon, and BT Reward. Contract lengths are typically on the longer side, but BT has significantly upped its game in terms of customer service in recent years and should always be near the top of anyone's consideration list
  • Direct Save Telecom – Direct Save Telecom have made a name for themselves as a budget broadband provider, with no credit checks for new customers. However, its 'no frills' approach won't be for everyone. You do, ultimately, get what you pay for
  • EE Broadband – EE offers standard and fibre broadband, and has the fastest 4G mobile connection in the UK. It offers the same router and broadly the same service as BT, which is its parent company, albeit without the option to add TV
  • Hyperoptic – Hyperoptic is a brand in its own right that’s built its own network using only fibre optic cables. With a Hyperoptic broadband deal, average speeds can reach a staggering 1Gbps, or 1,000Mbps
  • John Lewis Broadband – John Lewis brings its trustworthy reputation to the broadband industry with broadband and phone packages that come with no activation charges or usage caps. Not great value for money outside of a sale, though, in our view
  • NOW Broadband – With a NOW Broadband deal, you’ll enjoy competitively priced fibre and standard broadband, usually with a 12-month contract that’s ideal for students and home renters. NOW Broadband is part of the Sky family, but does no credit checks
  • Plusnet – With a Plusnet broadband deal, you’ll enjoy award-winning customer service along with a wide range of offers, including broadband only, basic broadband, and combined broadband and TV packages. A good alternative to giants such as BT and Sky
  • Shell Energy Broadband – Shell Energy (formerly First Utility) offers well-priced, clear and straightforward broadband and fibre packages with no fuss or frills. We rate its offering as good value, with a not-terrible router and decent customer service
  • Sky Broadband – Sky can’t match Virgin Media’s broadband for speed, but with a Sky broadband deal you’ll enjoy unrivalled access to some enviable broadband and TV bundles
  • SSE – With an SSE broadband deal, you can enjoy unlimited standard and fibre broadband for a low monthly rate, with regular discounts for existing SSE energy customers
  • TalkTalk – A TalkTalk broadband deal will give you access to affordable monthly rates combined with incentives like gift cards from retailers like Amazon, Tesco, and Argos – though these must usually be spent on fibre broadband products
  • Virgin Media broadband – Look out for incentives like bill credits of between £50 and £150, price discounts, free gifts, and free installation with a Virgin Media broadband deal. The brand also regularly runs flash sales lasting anywhere between three days and a week
  • Vodafone broadband – Best known as a mobile network, Vodafone also offers a great choice of mobile broadband and phone deals. With fibre-optic provision, a Vodafone broadband deal can offer speeds as high as 76Mbps

Broadband speed test

Broadband speed tests

While our broadband availability checker is a great place to start for giving you an approximate estimate of download speeds available within your postcode, our speed test will give you a much more accurate assessment of the speed on your line.

The broadband speeds available to you will be influenced by the network usage during peak times throughout the day. Naturally the speeds will be affected when there are more people connected than not.

What affects broadband speed where I live?

There are quite a few factors that can affect the performance of your broadband speed. For standard broadband in particular, the distance between your home and the nearest exchange can cause problems as those old copper wires don’t take too kindly to travelling too far these days; broadband signal slows down the further it has to travel.

Traffic management policies are also a scourge of speed performance. Typically targeted at peak times during the weekends and evenings, it is worth considering opting for a truly unlimited package to avoid such restrictions.

There are also hurdles to jump from within your own home as well as outside. Wireless routers are not as effective as those connected by cable and more likely to incur interference and, thus, affect your broadband speed. Other household electrical devices such as microwaves can also interfere with your router hence why it’s advisable to keep it somewhere more isolated such as the hallway.
