How we make our money

broadbandchoices  receives advertising fees and commissions from a number of the providers and mobile phone resellers that appear on the site. This does not increase the cost of any packages that you might subscribe to via our site and we do not charge you for any of the services available on our website. We only feature providers that comply with our strict listing criteria in order to ensure the high quality and comprehensiveness of the provider's listed - regardless of whether they pay us commission. Our commercial arrangements have no impact on how we list the providers or packages that appear in your results list.

Our broadband 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 packages offered by other providers, and check for hidden costs or fair usage policies so you can make sure you are choosing a deal that is right for you. Our results are automatically listed by total first year cost, but if you have other preferences, you can select alternative ways to rank the results, for example, by monthly cost, or connection speed or download limits. 

Our 'Featured deals' table contains provider sponsored listings selected 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.

How accurate is our broadband speeds information?

The speeds we show on our results table are providers' advertised 'up to' speeds, rather than speeds specific to your postcode.

Unfortunately, we can't list postcode-specific speed information in our results, as we would need to test each individual line to come up with an accurate figure. However, a provider should allow you to check speeds before you subscribe to their service.

The 'up to' speeds we show indicate what at least 10% of a provider's customers can actually get, following advertising rules set in place by the Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) and Committee of Advertising Practice (CAP).

That, of course, means that up to 90% of people might not actually receive the speeds listed, which can seem a little misleading. To counter this, we try to explain what the 'up to' figure means on our results table, and often speak out in the media about the need for providers to promote more accurate speeds.
