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

Compare ADSL broadband deals

Wi-Fi broadband icon

When you’re looking for a broadband package, you’ll usually find there are two main options: fibre optic, and ADSL. Fibre optic broadband is speedy and futuristic-sounding, but what’s ADSL all about?

Compare deals

What is ADSL broadband?

ADSL stands for ‘asymmetric digital subscriber line’. It essentially means basic broadband you can get through a telephone line, delivered via the same copper wires that connect your home phone. The ‘asymmetric’ bit of its name refers to the difference in download and upload speeds - while download speeds average about 11Mb, upload speeds are much lower - averaging between 2-3Mb.

BT owns the UK’s landline infrastructure, so your ADSL broadband will connect through a BT exchange - whether you get a package from BT or another provider that uses the Openreach network.

Which providers offer ADSL broadband?

Most of the major providers in the UK have ADSL packages available. Take a look at broadband from:

The exact providers and packages available, however, will vary depending on your location. Use our postcode checker to find out exactly what you can get in your area.

Why should I get ADSL broadband?

It’s widely available. Unlike fibre optic broadband, ADSL connections are available pretty much everywhere - if there’s a phone line in your home, you can almost certainly get basic broadband too.

As well as that, it’s generally cheaper than fibre optic. Though download speeds may not be the fastest around, 10 - 17Mb is more than enough to handle most basic online tasks - like browsing the web, sending emails, and streaming a bit of music and video. That said, if you have a large family, with lots of people online at the same time, you should probably look towards fibre optic broadband if you can get it, as the extra speed will ensure a smoother experience for everyone.

Most providers also have ADSL packages available with unlimited downloads, so you can transfer files, watch Netflix, and post pictures to Facebook without fear of hitting a download cap.

What are my other options?

Depending where you live, there may be different kinds of broadband available to you too.

Fibre optic broadband is much faster and more reliable than ADSL, and means you can download big files in a jiffy, watch HD video, and get the whole family online at the same time. However, it’s often more expensive than ADSL, and isn’t nearly as widely available. Read more about fibre optic broadband.

Cable broadband is delivered through ‘coaxial cable’, and in the UK it’s only available from Virgin Media. It’s super speedy and delivers TV as well as internet, but is even less widespread than fibre and often quite costly. Read more about Virgin Media broadband.

Another option is wireless broadband, which operates over 4G - like a mobile phone network. Wireless is ideal for areas where broadband struggles to reach, like remote rural villages or big tower blocks, but isn’t nearly as reliable as a wired connection and often has usage caps.
