Direct Save Telecom broadband reviews

Cheap broadband – that’s what Direct Save Telecom is about. Both fibre and standard broadband packages are available, all of which come a phone plan. There are capped and unlimited packages, and all plans are free of traffic management.

Broadband is available on an 18-month contract as well as on a rolling monthly contracts. This is useful if you want to keep your options open. There are a few negatives, however. Direct Save Telecom offers few extra features, and the broadband router included with the packages is sub-par. Our reviews provide a more in-depth look...

About Direct Save Telecom broadband

Direct Save Telecom services are carried on the BT network. This is available in most areas across the UK for standard broadband. It is one of the few providers to offer its home broadband deals on a 28-day rolling contract, ideal for those who don’t want to be tied to an 18-month contract.


Direct Save Telecom broadband only comes with a phone plan. For broadband, TV and phone bundles, it is worth looking at what the bigger providers, such as Sky, Virgin Media, BT and TalkTalk, have available. All these providers offer a competitive price on three-in-one packages.


Although Direct Save Telecom’s service runs on the BT infrastructure and is available in many UK homes, there are some areas that are unable to receive it, especially the fibre optic services, which are still undergoing rollout. If you are unsure what you can get, you can use the availability checker to see if you are in luck.

Direct Save Telecom offers standard broadband and fibre internet services. Standard broadband speed is advertised as up to 17Mbps, while fibre optic broadband is advertised as up to 76Mbps. Recently, Direct Save has launched two even faster fibre services in select areas up to 100Mbps and 300Mbps. Availability is limited and you can see if it’s available in your region on the DST website.

Standard broadband will suit small households that use the internet on a casual basis. A fibre connection is fast enough to accommodate all the online needs of a large household. With fibre, far more people can be online at once streaming HD movies, downloading music, and gaming.


Direct Save doesn’t offer many perks, which you might expect with its budget prices. The main perk is the Direct Save discount card, which offers discounts on shopping at major stores and money off family attractions such as Disneyland and Warwick Castle, as well as special offers on everything from laser eye surgery to car hire.

Call plan upgrade

All Direct Save broadband packages come with free inclusive weekend calls to UK landlines. If you rely a lot on your home phone, you can upgrade your plan to Evening and Weekend calls or Anytime calls, at an additional cost.
