Broadband options
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

*This is the maximum possible speed. Broadband speed may be lower at peak times and can be affected by a range of technical and environmental factors. The speed you receive where you live may be lower than that listed above.

Fibre/cable services at your postcode are subject to availability. You can confirm availability on the provider's website.

Providers may increase charges. You should have the right to exit your contract without penalty if this happens.

Broadband with no credit check

Got bad credit, a damaged history, or a CCJ? Sadly, that can mean you might fail a credit check, which you often need to pass to get a broadband package. But don't worry - it's still possible to get broadband. There are providers who will connect you regardless of your credit rating. Follow our steps and you'll be online in no time.

Can I get a mobile deal without a credit check?

Try signing up anyway

First of all, you may as well try and sign up for your preferred package, even if it's from a major provider like BT, Sky, Virgin Media, or TalkTalk that requires credit checks. Use our comparison service, pick a package that looks good, and click through to sign up.

Although most of them do checks, especially as broadband packages are usually on long-term contracts, it's always worth a try. Customers get accepted to providers like BT every day even with a black financial mark against their name - there's every chance they'll throw you a bone too.

If you still get denied a connection, however, it's time to check out providers that don't do credit checks at all.

Providers that don't require credit checks


The cool thing about TenTel is that it doesn't perform credit checks foranyof its packages. The other cool thing is that you've got a nice wide range of broadband and home phone options to choose from - whether you want a bit of light broadband to tie you over for a month or two, or an unlimited, superfast fibre optic connection for a whole year.

It also offers home phone, and you can add a Roku stick or box onto your broadband. See our guide for more on TenTel.


Alas, the vast majority of BT packages require credit checks, but there's one option that doesn't. BT Basic is discounted line rental designed for people who are on benefits or have low income - and you can add a bit of broadband onto that as well.

It's not exactly a hefty broadband package - your download limit is only 10GB per month - but it's better than nothing. To apply, you'll just need to give some personal details, including your date of birth and National Insurance number. See BT's website for more information on its Basic service.

Mobile broadband

Another often credit check-free option is mobile broadband. It works over 4G or 3G, the same as on your phone, and can come in the form of a dongle, mi-fi device, or personal Wi-Fi hotspot. A lot of mobile broadband works on a pay-monthly contract basis, which does still require a check - but not if you choose a pay-as-you-go option.

PAYG mobile broadband can get expensive if you use the internet a lot, but many providers also allow you to buy a bundle of data to use within 30 days - which can keep costs down. EE, for instance, offers this.

If you're happy to just use the internet on your phone (not always ideal, but hey, it's an option), take a look at our . Some may even let you 'tether' so you can use your mobile data through your computer. Read more about tethering in our guide.


  1. How do I switch broadband provider?

    The process of changing your broadband provider is actually pretty straightforward. First, you put your postcode into our impartial comparison tool. We’ll display the broadband, phone and TV deals available where you live, and then you can use our search filters to narrow down the options and find the perfect package for your household. Finally, you sign up with your new provider online. They’ll contact your existing provider and take care of everything else for you (unless you're switching to or from Virgin Media).

    The actual switch should be virtually seamless, and in the vast majority of cases it is. Your new broadband provider will send you all the stuff you need to get set up, like a new wireless router and/or TV set-top box.

  2. Do I need fibre optic broadband?

    Fibre optic broadband is much faster and much more reliable than broadband through the phone line, but it’s not essential for everyone. If you just want to browse the web, check email, Facebook, Twitter etc, you’ll be fine with standard broadband through the phone line.

    However, if you stream a lot of video, download music, films and games, and other such activities, you will likely find a fibre connection hugely beneficial.

    It’s also a boon for large households, especially ones with lots of gadgets like smartphones, tablets, and computers connected up most of the time. The more people using a connection, the slower it will be, so if you have a big family where lots of people want to connect to the web at the same time, for example, a fibre connection will ensure everyone can get a good experience.

  3. Can I keep my email address if I switch provider?
    It depends on which provider your email address is currently from. BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media, and Plusnet all let you keep your email address in some form after you've switched - but we'd recommend using a free service like Gmail or Outlook. See our guide for more information.
  4. Can I keep the same phone number?
    Even if you're switching phone provider it's usually possible to keep the same telephone number. However, if you're moving house it may not be possible to keep your existing phone number - particularly if you're entering a different area code.
