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

Compare cheap home broadband deals and get online for less

Want to get online, but don't want to break into your savings? Well, we're pleased to report that there are plenty of cheap broadband packages out there that are completely affordable. Here's how to find them and discover the lowest cost deals in your area.

Finding cheap broadband deals

The best way to find a cheap deal is to compare your options - use our comparison tool to select your requirements and find the package that offers them at the lowest price. The cheapest deals of all are generally offered by budget providers, and they don’t come with many bells and whistles. But if it’s just basic broadband you want - with no pay-TV, ultrafast speeds, or inclusive extras - cheap could be the way to go.

In other words, 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 to find the best deal.

Compare cheap broadband deals

What are the cheapest broadband providers and packages?

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.

  • Vodafone - You may know its mobile network - now get ready to meet its broadband too. Vodafone offers low-price fibre optic deals, complete with a rather smart router.

Can I get cheap BT, Sky, and Virgin Media deals?

The UK's bigger broadband providers aren't always the cheapest - but often they put out special offers, bonus extras, or slashed prices.

If there's a provider you'd particularly like a package from, it's worth taking a look at their current deals to see if there's something especially good value. See BT deals, Sky deals, and Virgin Media deals with our tool.

Check cheap broadband deals

Check the true cost

Just a quick note - most broadband providers offer cheap deals, but the true cost can bump up hen you start adding in compulsory charges like set-up fees and post-offer prices.

At broadbandchoices.co.uk, 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 it cheaper to get a bundle?

If you're not just looking for broadband, and want home phone, TV, and perhaps even a mobile plan as well, you can certainly save money by bundling. Getting more than one service from a single provider usually means cut prices, and many of them have special bundling deals. Take a look at some of them, and compare your options, here:

Broadband, phone, and TV deals

It's possible to get broadband on its own without line rental as well - but, interestingly, it's actually cheaper to go with a low-cost provider that has a landline ready-included. See our cheap broadband-and-phone deals here:

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 package 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!

FAQ

  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.

    For more info, see our guide: How to switch broadband

  2. 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.
  3. 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, home phone 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.
  4. 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.

  5. Can I keep my phone number if I switch provider?

    Yes, you can normally keep your existing number if you switch from one provider to another. However if you're a cable customer or need a new line, you may need to get a new one.
