This level of competition is great for consumers, with brands vying to secure your business by offering cheaper deals and more attractive incentives. It also means that deals change rapidly, so if you see one that works for you, jump on it before it disappears!

Coverage in the capital is great, as the city has an excellent communications infrastructure that includes both the BT Openreach phone network for standard / ADSL broadband and extensive cabling for fibre optic provision.

Download and upload speeds in London are also very good overall, though it’s best to double-check what’s currently on offer in your part of the city by using our postcode availability checker.

Which broadband providers are available in London?

Here’s our run-down of London’s three most popular providers, and what you can expect from each one:

BT broadband

BT has the most widely available broadband in London due to its extensive phone network. In recent years, the brand has also been hard at work rolling out its own fibre optic network across the capital, with packages using this network known as ‘BT Superfast Fibre’ (previously ‘BT Infinity’).

Superfast Fibre is already available across many parts of London, and many more households will be connected as the brand expands over the coming months and years. You can also use the company's Full Fibre broadband to get ultrafast speeds of up to 900Mbps in select areas.

To find out if yours is one of the homes that can access the provider’s fibre network, use our free London availability checker.

You can also find out more about BT broadband and what it’s really like to sign up to a deal on our provider review page.

Sky Broadband

Sky broadband is also widely available across London, with the brand offering three different speeds:

  • Sky Superfast: Fibre broadband, with an average download speed of 36Mbps.
  • Sky Ultrafast: Fibre broadband, with an impressive average download speed of 145Mbps.
  • Sky Gigafast: Fibre broadband, with a stunning average download speed of 900Mbps.

The brand also offers a range of different bundles that could save you money by combining your internet service with TV, landline phone provision or both.

To find out which deals are available in your part of London, use our quick and simple London broadband postcode checker.

Virgin Media broadband

Having established their own cable network across England’s capital city, Virgin Media provides the fastest broadband deals in London (and the rest of the UK), along with a wide range of cable TV and landline phone services.

As with BT’s Superfast Fibre network, the rollout of Virgin’s cable network in the city is an ongoing process, with thousands of new homes set to become cable-ready in the near future.

Use our London broadand checker to find out if yours is one of the lucky homes already equipped to enjoy mind-blowing broadband speeds, or find out why Virgin earns a full five stars on our provider review page.

London fibre broadband rollout

Fibre optic broadband rollout is now well underway across London, with BT and Virgin Media making inroads into new parts of the city every month.

BT Superfast Fibre is widely available in the city, with top speeds of 80Mbps. It shouldn’t be too long before the whole of the capital is connected, as BT continues their rollout, day by day.

Using their own cable network, Virgin Media currently offer average download speeds of 350Mbps and beyond to many homes in London. In select areas, the speeds reach up to 1,130Mbps, which is remarkable. As with BT, the brand is set to dominate more of the capital’s broadband market throughout 2021 and beyond.

Cheapest internet in London

Many of the UK’s cheapest broadband deals and bundles, with the lowest monthly costs, are widely available in London.

The downside of a so-called ‘cheap’ broadband deal is that it may come with a cap on the amount of data you can download each month and may not include any extras or freebies to sweeten the deal.

When comparing cheap broadband deals in London, make sure that the download allowance will be enough to let you do everything you want to do online and that the average download speed advertised will be fast enough to do it with.

The right broadband speed for your household depends on a number of factors, including how many people you live with and the type of thing you all enjoy doing online. If you’re not sure what speed you need, our guide to choosing the right broadband speed will help you decide.

To find cheap broadband deals in London, start by using our free postcode checker, which will show you all the packages available in your area of the city. You can sort these deals using various criteria, including monthly cost, cost for the first year of the contract and true monthly cost (including any charges for installation and line rental).

What is the best broadband in London?

The best type of broadband available in London depends on the individual needs of your household. For some, speed is the most important factor. For others, cost is more relevant. And for many, availability is an issue, as not all types of broadband are available in all parts of the capital just yet.

As with finding the cheapest deal in London, consider what you’ll be using your new service for and the kind of demands you and your household will be placing on it (there’s little sense in choosing a standard / ADSL broadband deal, for instance, when you live with six other avid online gamers and regularly stream HD and 4K TV content).

As with cheap deals, the best deals offered in London vary based on availability. Use our postcode checker to discover great deals in your area today and filter the results by the level of performance and affordability that suits you. Once you’ve chosen a deal that suits your household needs, we’ll quickly and securely transfer you to the site of the provider you’ve selected to arrange a fast and painless switch.
