Post Office broadband reviews

Post Office Broadband offers 17Mb standard broadband as well as 38Mb and 76Mb fibre speeds. Its prices are on the cheaper side of most broadband providers, but they are not the cheapest.

About Post Office broadband

Since 2007, Post Office broadband has grown in popularity. Its broadband comes with unlimited usage and free weekend calls to UK landlines.

Unlimited data will benefit those who enjoy streaming HD content, downloading music and online gaming. Post Office will also send a free wireless router to get you connected. With this router you can connect multiple devices to your wi-fi network, including laptops, mobile phones and tablets.

It’s worth noting that Post Office broadband offers one of the cheapest line rental fees on the market. You can save even more by paying upfront with the line rental saver scheme offered by the provider.

Bundles

You can only bundle Post Office broadband and phone deals together. If you are looking to get a broadband, TV and phone package, you may want to shop elsewhere and take a look at what other broadband suppliers have to offer. Sky, Virgin Media and BT are just a few that offer a three-in-one package.

Speed

Post Office offers standard broadband with a download speed of 8Mbps, adequate for light browsing and even streaming TV shows and films. However, it’s a slow speed for a household that is always online and streams a lot of HD content. If you have several devices running off your wi-fi connection, it may slow down your internet speed, which in turn will disrupt your online activity.

Even though the Broadband Premium package is advertised as an unlimited broadband deal, if your usage becomes heavy, your download and upload speed will be slowed down.

This shouldn’t be an issue if you just go online for everyday tasks, but it may get frustrating if you use peer-to-peer sharing.

Extras

Post Office offers a security package for your PC, which includes anti-spam and anti-virus software, and also parental controls. For your phone plan, you can nominate ten people as your Loved Ones and get 10% off calls to them. You can choose UK landline, UK mobile or international landline numbers, and one 0845 number. You’ll also get up to five email addresses for your family to use.

Customer service available 24/7

A big perk of Post Office is the UK-based customer service. If you have any technical issues with your broadband or phone, you can call the team at any time of the day to help resolve your problem. If you have a query about your phone line, a separate customer care line is open between 7am–11pm, seven days a week.

Upgrade your phone plan

If you regularly use your home phone, you may want to upgrade to Evening and Weekend calls or Anytime calls. As well as UK landlines, you’ll also get free weekend calls to UK mobiles and landlines in 40 international destinations – just keep in mind that each call is only free for the first 60 minutes.
