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

*Average speeds are based on the download speeds of at least 50% of customers at peak time (8pm to 10pm). Speed 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. You can check the estimated speed to your property prior to purchasing.

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 for families and large households

Family shadow

Dad’s using his laptop, the kids are on the Xbox, gran’s got her tablet - a family uses a lot of broadband. Picking the right package, however, can be a bit confusing.

Compare deals

What speed do you need? Do you need unlimited downloads? How much is that going to cost? Well, keep reading, and tell you everything you need to know to choose a broadband package good enough to handle your household - without breaking the bank.

How to pick the right deal

Finding the right broadband deal is easier than it looks, thanks to our comparison tool. Find all the things you want from your broadband - like download speeds, favourite providers, and contract length - and select them from the filters on the left hand side. We’ll show you all the deals that fit your requirements and are available in your area. To find the cheapest deals, sort the results by cost. And presto, here are your deals.

Do I need fibre?

If you can get it in your home, we’d definitely recommend a fibre package - especially for a large family. Fibre optic broadband will give you…

  • Faster speeds
  • More bandwidth, so you can get loads of devices online at once
  • Lower latency (lag), meaning better Skype calls and online gaming

It costs a little more, but if you can swing it - and if it’s available where you are - it’ll save a lot of headaches in the long run.

What’s the best broadband for a large family?

Speed

Large households tend to be crammed full of computers, smartphones, tablets, games consoles, and smart TVs - so you’re going to need broadband fast enough to handle them all.

‘Superfast’ broadband is defined as a connection with a download speed of 24Mb or over - which is fast enough for most families. But if your household streams a lot of video, watches a lot of catch-up TV, plays online games, or works from home, it can’t hurt to go faster.

Most fibre optic packages start with advertised speeds of around 35Mb, which is quite fast, though Virgin Media offers packages with average speeds of 362Mb, which is really fast.

  • For a house of three or four people: take a look at broadband with advertised average speeds of 35Mb and above.
  • For a house of five or more people: see packages with average speeds of 67Mb and beyond.

Unlimited downloads

You’ll definitely want broadband with unlimited downloads - a large household will breeze through a download limit in a matter of days. Luckily, nearly every broadband provider offers unlimited packages, including BT, Sky, TalkTalk, and Virgin Media. You won’t be short on choice.

Keep an eye out for ‘truly unlimited’ packages too - this means there’s no web traffic management that can slow down your connection at peak times.

TV

Want pay-TV for your home as well? Take a look at providers that offer broadband and TV combo packages. Bundling your services together is super convenient and, even better, it costs less than it does to get them separately.

You can get broadband, TV, and home phone in a handy singular package from these providers:

  • Sky - offers the most comprehensive TV service in the UK with more than 300 channels
  • Virgin Media - up to 245 channels and some of the fastest broadband around
  • TalkTalk and BT - both offer extra channels through a YouView box, including kids’ TV packs
  • Now TV - monthly rolling ‘Passes’ that give you entertainment channels, kids’ TV, and more

Home phone

Don’t forget about the ol’ landline. Broadband almost always comes with a landline service, and if you’re a chatty house, you can add on some inclusive calls. Depending on your provider, you may be able to wrangle:

  • Inclusive evening calls after 6pm
  • Evening and weekend calls
  • International minutes, so you can keep in touch with family and friends overseas

Or, if you don’t use the phone at all, have a look at broadband deals without a landline.

Mobile

A few broadband providers also offer mobile phone deals - including discounts and goodies for broadband customers, and special plans designed to suit families. Providers with both broadband and mobile packages include:
