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
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
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’.

Get online for less!

Home internet doesn’t have to cost a fortune. If you’re looking for broadband for less, you’ve loads of choice from many different providers. Here’s everything you need to know about cheap broadband.

Which broadband providers are the cheapest?

If it’s low-cost internet access you’re after, you’re not short of options. Quite a few providers specialise in broadband that won’t break the bank. They include:

TalkTalk - As well as doing low-cost broadband - including superfast fibre - TalkTalk offers cut-price YouView TV. Plus, for the price of a pint and a packet of peanuts, you can add Sky channels and more! It’s the complete package for cheap.

Plusnet - this BT-owned provider has built its good reputation by delivering affordable standard and fibre packages, and responsive UK-based customer support.

Post Office - No longer just a place to buy stamps, the Post Office is a respected budget broadband provider these days. And, unlike with its competitors, you can pay your bill by cash over the Post Office counter.

Check the true cost

Just a quick note - most broadband providers offer cheap deals, but the true monthly cost bumps up significantly when you start adding in compulsory charges like line rental.

At, we tell you exactly what you can expect to pay each month, including the costs downplayed in some cheap deals. Simply click the appropriate cost box in your results, and you can check whether a deal you’re looking at is as good value as it initially appears.

Is cheap broadband the best choice?

It depends. For some, such as those who live alone and don’t use the internet a lot, the cheapest option will do fine. For others, it would be a mistake. For example, if you live in a shared house full of people also connected to the web, or you're a heavy downloader, it might be better to look at fibre packages.

The most important thing is that your broadband lets you do what you want, whether it’s uploading photos to Facebook or playing a video game against an adversary a continent away.

So here’s our advice - think about how you use the internet first, and then pick the cheapest package that meets your requirements.

Ask yourself these questions first:

  • Will a lot of people use the internet at once?
  • Do you want TV as well as broadband?
  • Will you be using it for streaming TV?
  • Will you be playing online games much?
  • Do you use your home phone a lot?

If you mainly said nope, go cheap!


  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, 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. 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. Why do I have to pay line rental?
    Even if you never use your home phone to make calls, you still need a phone line to receive your broadband connection. This is true of virtually all broadband providers, so paying line rental is pretty much unavoidable. Virgin Media is the only widely available broadband you can get without taking a phone line as well.
  3. Can I keep my email address if I change provider?
    This depends entirely on who your current provider is. If your email address is from BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Virgin Media, or Plusnet, you'll still have access to your emails at least temporarily - but we'd suggest changing over to a free service like Gmail or Outlook so you don't need to worry about losing all your emails just for switching broadband. See our guide for more info.
  4. Can I save money by bundling TV, phone and broadband?
    Yes you can. Providers like Sky and Virgin Media offer competitively priced bundles, comprising broadband, homephone and TV, and getting all three services from the same place often leads to significant savings. It also makes it easier to manage finances, as all services come on a single bill.
  5. 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.
