Broadband type Fixed-line broadband is available either as standard (ADSL) broadband, or fibre optic. Fibre optic broadband is much faster and more reliable, but it isn’t available everywhere and can cost more.
Monthly usage allowance The amount you download determines the broadband package you should get. To keep things simple, we ask if you would like to see packages which are unlimited. These packages are ideal for users who are online for several hours during the day, or use the internet extensively for entertainment - like downloading movies and TV, streaming entertainment, or playing games. They are also good for large households where several people go online at the same time. If that sounds like you, pick ‘Just unlimited’.
Minimum speed Your broadband speed determines how fast web pages load, files are downloaded, the time streaming video takes to buffer, and more. For a big household, or one where you stream lots of video or play games, a fast speed is recommended

So, to make sure you get the absolute best deal, we’ve listed some of the top broadband 12-month contracts from the UK’s biggest networks above. Plus, we’ve also covered some of the most important things to consider before you choose a package.

Starting with…

What type of broadband should I get?

When it comes to choosing a 12-month broadband package, think about things like: usage, speed, and any extras you might need before you switch. The three main types of broadband are: ADSL, fibre optic and cable. Which one you opt for really depends on you and your family’s individual needs.

Here’s a little more about your options:

  • ADSL - this is your bog-standard broadband. It’s ideal for casual internet users, and a heck of a lot cheaper than fibre optic or cable. That said, large households will struggle to get decent speeds, especially at peak times. So, if you stream movies and TV shows, you’d be better off with a fibre optic package. ADSL is available from providers like BT, TalkTalk and Plusnet, and because they share the same infrastructure, it’s completely hassle-free to switch between them.
  • Fibre optic broadband - fibre optic broadband reaches much faster speeds than ADSL and is significantly more reliable to boot. In fact, if you’re a heavy internet user, or belong to a large family that uses several different devices like phones, tablets and games consoles at once, then a fibre package will undoubtedly be the best option for you. To find out if fibre optic is available in your area, simply pop your details into our postcode checker.
  • Wireless broadband - while ADSL and fibre broadband uses copper and fibre optic cables to reach your home, wireless broadband enters your house through radio waves. Indeed, your chosen provider will send you a router that, once set-up, will pick up signal from their local masts. It’s ideal if standard broadband isn’t available in your area, and a great way to save on costs. Plus, it won’t require the faff of getting an engineer to come and install it; simply plug in the router, and you’ll be good to go.

Now you know a little more about the different types of broadband available, let’s go straight to the important bit:

What are the best 12-month ADSL broadband contract deals?

The great thing about taking out standard ADSL broadband, is that it’s a lot cheaper than fibre-optic packages.

There are really no secrets to finding a great 12-month ADSL broadband deal. In fact, it’s pretty straightforward. Simply look at the table above and use the filters on the left hand-side of the page to find the package that best suits you.

What are the best 12-month fibre optic deals?

Fibre optic broadband is ideal for large families who use lots of gadgets, business owners and heavy internet users.

When it comes to packages, Virgin Media’s fibre optic broadband boasts some seriously eye-watering speeds. However, unless you run a business from home, you have an affinity for the latest mod-cons or you’re a serious computer gamer, it’s unlikely you’ll get much use out of all those extra megabits.

Consequently, providers like BT offer fibre packages that reach impressive speeds, too. And TalkTalk and Plusnet packages are great value.

Most providers will offer you the option to include TV as part of your broadband deal, and the best part is, there’s a ton of great broadband and TV deals around right now.

What happens if I try to leave my contract early?

If you’re locked into a contract, your provider will likely charge you a termination fee to cancel. Depending on how far into your contract you are, the cost can be pretty hefty. The good news is there are ways you may be able to cancel your contract early.

If your speeds don’t match what you were promised, for example, or your provider raises prices mid-contract you can now walk away penalty-free.

Take a look at our handy guide to find out more information on leaving your contract early.
