5 of the best no-contract broadband deals in December 2017

Short-term broadband has moved with the times; no longer are you restricted to a heavily limited 17Mb connection. Both Virgin Media and Now TV (Sky) are offering reasonably priced 30-day rolling fibre deals - without any of the long-term commitment.

You can choose anything from unlimited 300Mb with Virgin Media to just 17Mb from Zen. Prices inevitably vary according to speed and provider, but the choice is plentiful. We've picked five of the best short-contract broadband deals currently available.

1
Now TV

Now TV

Now TV and broadband

  • Download speed
    38Mbps
  • Contract term
    One month
  • Usage limit
    Unlimited usage
  • Upfront cost
    £44
  • Monthly cost
    £35.99

Now TV is powered by Sky and that is reflected in the range of broadband choice. Choose from 17Mb, 38Mb or 76Mb – all are available on one-month contract terms. Should you want to, you can sign up for a longer period if you want to - but the one-month option gives you the flexibility to decide what's best for you.

The major drawback of taking broadband or fibre with Now TV is that you cannot get broadband alone - it has to be taken with a Now TV package. Choose from Entertainment, Sky Cinema, Sky Sports or Kids - or any combination of that four.

Virgin Media

Virgin Media

Vivid 50

  • Download speed
    50Mbps
  • Contract term
    One month
  • Usage limit
    Unlimited usage
  • Upfront cost
    £65
  • Monthly cost
    £40

To be able to get 50Mb broadband on a rolling monthly basis sounds too good to be true - and yet, it is now possible. In fact, Virgin is now offering all its broadband speeds - 50Mb, 100Mb, 200Mb and 300Mb on 30-day rolling contracts. So whether you just want to try it out or are looking for a no-contract broadband deal for any other reason, the option is now there - subject to availability in your area.

On the downside, one-month 50Mb Virgin is much more epensive than its 12-month-contract sibling, for which you would pay just £29 per month.

Zen

Zen

Unlimited broadband

  • Download speed
    Up to 17Mb
  • Contract term
    One month
  • Usage limit
    Unlimited
  • Upfront cost
    None
  • Monthly cost

This package is great for light users who love to browse and enjoy streaming a film or two. There are no usage limits on Zen’s one-month broadband services, nor any traffic management, so your online activity won’t be slowed down during peak times. Calls are charged on a pay-as-you-go basis.

There is no activation cost, although if you are not switching from another provider you will have to pay a line activation fee of £48. You will also receive a free broadband router and a free static IP address - should you have need of one. Although not considered a mainstream provider, Zen has a reputation for offering outstanding customer care and service.
