We’ve listed all the best BT Infinity broadband deals
If you’re interested in BT Infinity then you’ve come to the right place. Our comparison page lists all the best BT Infinity broadband deals available, and they are yours for the taking just by clicking the button. We’ve listed all the best deals that include a BT Infinity package, so make sure you check all the details before clicking through to buy.
Check that BT Infinity is available in your area
As it uses fibre optic cables, BT Infinity is not available everywhere, so before you start to compare broadband deals, you should put your postcode into the broadband checker at the top – this will limit the results to only those that are available in your area.
Check the detail
Make sure you know what you’re looking for
Before you make the leap to one of these BT infinity deals, it’s best to make sure that it’s the right thing for you. BT Infinity provides fast fibre optic to your property, but it does not necessarily present the best broadband deal for everyone. Make sure you check out the details and terms and conditions on the packages you’re looking at to make sure you’ll get the best value from it.
Why choose BT Infinity?
BT Infinity is faster than ADSL broadband
The major selling point for fibre optic broadband is the speed it provides. BT offers two speeds with its Infinity package, the up to 52Mbps and the up to 76Mbps so you should be able to find one that’s perfect for you. This is markedly faster than BT Broadband, which is advertised at up to 17Mbps.
Access to BT Sport is available to BT Infinity customers
If you’re mad into sports, then you’ll be delighted to hear that access to BT Sports is granted to everyone who signs up to BT Infinity and can be viewed on its online player and app. The BT Sports channel hosts 38 exclusive live Premier League matches, including 18 top pick games, as well as action from Aviva Premiership Rugby and exclusive live matches from the FA Cup.
BT Infinity can be added to a TV and phone bundle
BT Infinity can be bundled up with a phone and TV package, which means you can get all your communication and entertainment from one place – great for those that like to keep things simple. TV Entertainment (the TV package that comes with BT Infinity) has 70 Freeview TV channels and an additional 20 channels including the Discovery Channel, the History Channel and MTV.
Pros & cons
- Faster than standard broadband
- Access to the BT Sport online player and app

Which package is right for me?
BT Infinity 1 is fast but limited
BT Infinity 1 is the entry-level Infinity package. It comes with a download speed of up to 52Mbps and has a 20GB usage limit. This package is ideal for casual users who mainly browse and shop online, but the 20GB limit will not allow for a huge amount of streaming or downloading. It also comes with a raft of extra features, including BT SmartTalk, BT Parental Controls, the Home Hub 5 and 2GB’s worth of storage on the BT Cloud.
The Unlimited BT Infinity 1 package is totally unlimited
If you’re not after the fastest speed available, but don’t want to be worrying about data allowances, then the Unlimited BT Infinity 1 deal is for you. It comes with the same speed, up to 52Mbps, as the other packages, but does not have a data allowance cap, so you can download as much as you want.
Unlimited BT Infinity 2 is the best package for heavy downloaders
If you’re after the fastest advertised speed BT provides and an unlimited usage allowance, then the Unlimited BT Infinity 2 deal should be right up your street. This comes with a download speed of up to 76Mbps and, like the Unlimited BT Infinity 1 package, is totally unlimited, so you should be able to do everything you want online, including downloading and streaming.
What will I need?
Check that you can receive a fibre optic line
To get BT’s Infinity deals, you’ll need a fibre optic line, which is not available to everyone at the moment. You can find out whether you can receive a fibre optic connection in your area by putting your postcode into the box at the top of this page.
A 12 or 18-month contract is standard on Infinity packages
All of the BT Infinity packages come with either a 12- or 18-month contract, which is pretty standard for a deal like this, but still a long time to be with one provider. Make sure you’re happy with this level of commitment since if you break your contract early, you will be charged a cancellation fee.
How do I switch?
Make sure the package is right for you, then contact BT
Switching to BT is fairly easy. First, you need to check what is available in your area, which can be done with our broadband comparison table above. After you’ve chosen your package, you need to contact BT, which can be done directly by clicking next to the deal above. If you are already with another provider, BT will contact them on your behalf and cancel your old services (if you’re with Virgin Media, you’ll need to contact them yourself). BT will let you know when the switch date will be and whether an engineer needs to visit the property. If you have any questions about switching, BT is able to assist.
Six essential questions before you buy
- Can I receive BT Infinity in my area?
- What data allowance do I need?
- What speed to I need?
- Do I want to add BT TV to my package?
- Am I OK with switching to a new provider?
- Can I commit to a 12- or 18-month contract?
Make sure you check the detail and that it’s definitely the deal for you
There are plenty of things to consider when picking a BT Infinity deal. First you need to work out if you want a deal with a data allowance or one that is unlimited. If you do opt for an unlimited deal, then you need to work out which speed is right for you. When you’ve decided on a deal, make sure you’ve read all the terms and conditions of the plan to make sure you’re comfortable with it, and you should be ready to buy.
