Frequently asked questions

Broadband and line rental often go hand in hand but it’s easy to overlook all of the associated costs and this can make finding a genuinely good deal difficult. Fortunately, the comparison tools on this page let you weed out the all the deals that you don’t want so that you can easily pick the best available.

What are the best deals for broadband and line rental?

The best broadband and line rental deals balance price, performance and features. Packages vary and not all providers charge the same for line rental.

The first step to finding the best deal is deciding what’s most important to you: speed, usage, the length of the contract, price and so on. This will allow you to separate the wheat from the chaff before identifying your ideal match.

Compare broadband and line rental deals

You can compare a range of broadband and line rental deals on this page. All of the important information is upfront so you can quickly decide which packages are the real contenders.

When you find what you’re looking for, you can click straight through to the provider for more info or to sign up if you’re ready.

You can also call the number on display to discuss the deal further, but keep in mind that some deals are only available online.

How do I find the cheapest broadband and line rental deals?

All of the results on this page can be arranged according to their price, so you can work your way through from the cheapest to those that are more expensive.

Make sure you include line rental prices when comparing costs as they may be excluded by default.

You should also consider the standard monthly charge once any offers end, the potential upfront costs, and the lifetime expense before you commit to a contract.

Cheap fibre broadband and line rental

The cost of line rental should be the same regardless of whether you choose a standard broadband (ADSL) or fibre optic broadband service.

A provider’s fibre packages will often cost more than its ADSL service, but the comparison tools on this page should help you to identify the most affordable options available.

How can I save money on broadband and line rental?

If you want to shave a little off the cost of your next broadband and line rental packages, the comparison tools on this page could help.

Look out for special offers

Providers regularly run special offers for new customers, which could include money off, money back or both.

You can view some of the latest offers available for broadband and line rental on this page, but don’t forget to consider the standard costs once the promotional period ends.

Check for a line rental saver option

Some providers including BT, Virgin Media and TalkTalk offer the option to pay for a years’ line rental upfront for less than you would pay over twelve monthly instalments.

You’ll typically save somewhere in the region of 20%, but should check with the provider for details.

Can I get a short-term plan?

The average broadband and line rental plan comes with a 12 or 18-month minimum term, but some providers offer one-month rolling contracts if you need extra flexibility.

Broadband and line rental with no contract

A rolling broadband service can last as long as you need it to, be it a three-month, six-month or a slightly longer contract term.

Enter your postcode at the top of this page to see if there are any short-term plans available.

Do I need to pay line rental for broadband?

In most cases, yes because the majority of UK broadband providers use traditional telephone lines (in part at least) to deliver internet connectivity.

Line rental can be avoided with mobile or satellite broadband services but these aren’t suitable for everyone.

Virgin Media offers true broadband-only packages, but as these don’t always qualify for the latest offers, some people may find its broadband and phone plans (which include line rental) to be better value overall.

Who has the cheapest line rental?

When you ignore annual line rental savers – which aren’t widely available – the difference in charges between UK broadband providers is usually quite small.

Here’s what some of the UK’s leading suppliers charge:

  • BT line rental: £17.99 per month
  • Direct Save line rental: £15.35 per month
  • EE line rental: £16.40 per month
  • Fuel line rental: £16.40 per month
  • John Lewis line rental: £13.50 per month
  • Plusnet line rental: £16.99 per month
  • Post Office line rental: £15 per month
  • Sky line rental: £16.40 per month
  • TalkTalk line rental: £17.70 per month
  • Virgin Media line rental: £16.99 per month
