Hello and welcome to our site. We’re the broadband, phone, TV and mobile phone experts and our mission is to help our customers find the best broadband, phone, TV and mobile deals for them.
Unlike some comparison sites out there, we’re totally impartial and we put you, the customer, at the heart of what we do. But you don’t have to take our word for it, our sophisticated yet simple-to-use price comparison calculator is one of only a few approved by Ofcom, the UK’s communication regulator.
Here at broadbandchoices you can compare broadband, TV and mobile phone packages to find the very best deals available to you – where you live.
Not only can you compare packages from broadband big boys like BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media, but we also list smaller providers to give you a clearer picture of your broadband and entertainment options. With us you can also tailor your results to get the most relevant deal, so if, for example, you’re only interested in fibre optic broadband, just click the appropriate box and you’ll be presented with all our fibre optic deals in your area. Simple.
We’ve been in the business since 2005, so when it comes to broadband and entertainment we know our stuff. This means as well as helping you to get the best broadband, phone and TV services, we can also advise you on everything from finding out your current connection speed via our speed test tool to whether you need 4G mobile broadband - and much more.
Need help using the site, have a question about your current package or want to know how to go about switching? Then get in touch with us on Twitter, Facebook or Google+, or check out the Contact Us section, and we’ll do our very best to help you out.

Get the most out of your broadband and mobile package
Keep up to date with regular updates from the industry
If you’ve had the same broadband package for a few years there’s a good chance you’re paying over the odds. And, if you’re doing more and more online, it may no longer be able to keep up with you. Or perhaps you want to upgrade a package that includes phone calls, TV or something else.
This is where we come in. Put your postcode into our comparison calculator - approved by UK communications regulator Ofcom, so you can trust it’s impartial - and we’ll show you what deals are available where you live clearly and simply. You can then tailor the results and find exclusive deals.
Place your order online and that’s it - the provider will take care of the switch from there. We’ve also got loads of guides and videos put together by our experts to help you choose the right package and get the most out of it, as well as a speed tester so you can work out if you need to switch broadband.
This means you can put your postcode into our comparison calculator and look for a package that’s both better and cheaper than the one you’ve got safe in their knowledge that you won’t be bombarded with junk mail in the near future.
It’s a technique - also known as traffic prioritisation or traffic shaping - used by broadband providers to rank, ration and even restrict how networks or individual connections are used. This is done to ensure all everyone gets a decent service, no matter what they’re doing online.
If you think of broadband as a motorway, traffic management is like a priority lane for certain types of traffic. The traffic that’s prioritised varies from provider to provider, but in general it’ll be things like watching TV and films online, and video calls, to stop them from buffering or cutting out.
Every provider does traffic management differently. Some traffic manage their entire network, which means you could see your connection slowed down or restricted if you’re constantly downloading really big files, such as high-definition (HD) films, at peak times.
Others only prioritise traffic on individual connections. This means, if you’re downloading a lot of music, but then start playing a game online, the former may be slowed down so you can do the latter properly. However, you won’t be slowed down to provide room on the network for others.
Traffic management is used to protect the quality of your internet connection rather than punish you for what you do online, but if you’re a very heavy downloader and think it’ll affect you, a number of providers now offer ‘truly unlimited’ broadband, which isn’t traffic managed in any way.
Every broadband provider has a traffic management policy, which tells you how they use traffic management, the packages it applies to and when they use it. You can find links to the traffic management policies of each of the big broadband providers in the UK below:
The cost of the average broadband and phone package has dropped by over 50% over the last four years, and more than a third of people in the UK haven’t switched their broadband in four years or longer. If you’re one of them, you could be paying way over the odds by now.
So, by switching you’re very likely to save money - providers save their best deals for new customers, so you could get an extra discount. Not only that, but if your current package no longer does what you want then switching to a more suitable one will mean you’re getting more for your money.
We can’t say for sure, because most providers don’t have an official policy on it, but the chances are you’ll lose your email address if you switch. BT will let you keep your email address for a small monthly charge, but most providers will close your account after a set number of days.
If your email address is all that’s tying you to your current package, you could use a specialist email service like Gmail or Outlook - formerly Hotmail - instead; you should be able to move all your contacts from one to the other in one go.
Do that and the ball’s in your court - you’ll never have to worry about switching email address again, meaning you can switch broadband providers and get a better deal each time your current contract is up.
Yup. Bundling broadband with phone and TV can save you more than £400 a year when compared to getting all three separately - not a saving to turn your nose up at, eh? Not only that, but it’s more convenient as you only have to deal with one provider.
However, don’t go for a bundle full of stuff you won’t use just because it seems like a bargain - paying for TV channels you don’t watch or anytime calls you don’t use is a waste of money even if you did get a good deal on them. So, have a think about what you need and then bundle accordingly.
It depends on where you live. Unlike the other big broadband providers in the UK, which use the national phone network to connect you to the internet, Virgin Media has its own fibre optic cable network. This means you can get broadband from Virgin Media without needing a phone line.
Virgin Media cable broadband is available to almost half the homes in the country. If you can’t get it, and don’t have a phone line, most providers can install one for you, and some will do it free if you get broadband from them. If you don’t want a phone line, mobile broadband is your best bet.
No, but those we do list provide over 95% of all home broadband packages in the UK. This is why, when you put your postcode into our comparison calculator, there’ll be loads of deals for you to choose from and why we’ve got the thumbs up from the sheriff of communications, Ofcom.
We don’t list every single package from each of the providers we list either, but those we do are among the most competitive you’ll find and we regularly have deals that are exclusive to us, which offer even better value for money.
Things are always changing with broadband, phone and TV, so we’re constantly updating the information we give you on providers and packages. However, if you spot something we’ve missed please let us know so we can sort it by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
broadbandchoices receives commissions and advertising fees from the companies that appear on our site. This does not push up the cost of any service that you might subscribe to through our site and we do not charge you for any of the services we offer on the website. Our listings include the providers that comply with our strict listing criteria - relating to the quality and comprehensiveness of each provider’s service. In addition to this, our commercial arrangements do not impact on the way we list the providers or packages that appear in your results list.
Our comparison calculator also has the much sought-after Ofcom seal of approval so you can be extra confident of our impartiality.
Our calculator lets you compare costs against other providers, check for hidden costs and fair usage policies so you can make sure you are choosing the right deal for you. We rank broadband packages on our site by total first year cost and you can also select other ways to rank the results including monthly cost, download limits or speed.
Our ‘Featured deals’ table contains sponsored listings chosen by broadbandchoices. For the wider list of packages, sorted according to your chosen criteria, you can enter your postcode in the postcode box.
We are dedicated to providing informative, impartial content that offers true value to our customers.
By total first year cost, including everything from installation fees to postage and packing. We were one of the first comparison sites to do this as we think it provides the clearest picture of how much you’ll pay and it’s easy to be enticed by introductory offers that can look better value than they are.
However, you can rank the results to suit yourself using the drop-down ‘sort’ menu at the top right corner of our results page, which lets you rank them by contract length, monthly cost, provider, speed, upfront cost and usage through ticking the relevant box.
We don’t manipulate the results in any way whatsoever, which is why we’re approved by Ofcom, the UK communications custodians. We do have some sponsored listings, such as the featured providers on our homepage, but these don’t influence the results our comparison calculator shows you.
