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

All broadband, no contract

Need a temporary broadband fix for a few months? Prefer to fly by the seat of your pants, stopping and starting your broadband service whenever you want? Time to get rid of that contract and connect to some commitment-free internet. Here’s how it works.

Broadband without a contract? Really?

Yes, really. You can get broadband in your home without tying yourself down to a scary long-term contract.

Most broadband packages lock you in for 12, 18, or even 24 months, but a few providers offer it on just a 30-day basis. That means there’s no commitment, and you can stop and start it whenever you want. And you’ll still get a great broadband service.

Which providers offer no-contract broadband?

  • Now TV - which also lets you throw in a 30-day TV, Sky Sports, or Sky Cinema pass
  • Tentel - which doesn’t even require a credit check
  • Plusnet - just pick a 30-day contract when you reach the checkout
  • Relish - for unlimited, contract-free mobile broadband in central London
  • Various other mobile broadband providers - read more about them here

You’ll get the exact same service as a full contract package - there’s no compromise on quality, speed, or inclusive features. And it’s just as widely available as any other package from that provider.

Bear in mind that Now TV is the only one on the list that will let you get superfast fibre optic broadband without a contract. That’ll be your best bet for speedy, contract-less internet.

Should I get no-contract broadband?

  • It’s the perfect choice if you’ll be living somewhere for less than a year
  • There are no hefty cancellation fees
  • You may not need a credit check
  • You can cancel it and take out a better deal when one comes along

If you’re living somewhere long-term, on the other hand, you’ll probably get a better value deal by signing up to a proper contract - take a look at our broadband page to see what your options are.

Aren’t there hidden costs?

For some contract-free broadband packages, you may have to pay a fee for the connection, or for the cost of a router. Your chosen provider will tell you what these are before you sign up.

Our comparison service calculates by your total first year cost - including those one-off upfront fees - so you know exactly what you can expect to pay.


  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. How long does it take to switch broadband?
    When you sign up to a new provider, they’ll contact your existing one and request a transfer of your service. The only exception is when you're switching to or from Virgin Media, in which case you'll have to call and cancel. While switching times vary depending on the type of package, it shouldn’t usually take more than 10 working days. It can take longer if you don’t currently have a phone line, as an engineer will need to come out and install one for you.
  3. Can I keep my old email address?
    This depends on which provider your email address is currently from. Most - including BT, Sky, Virgin Media, TalkTalk, and Plusnet - let you keep your emails in some form after you switch, though you may need to pay a fee or let them know in advance. Take a look at our guide for more info.
  4. Can I get broadband without a phone line?
    Cable giant Virgin Media is the only major UK provider to offer broadband without a telephone line. Its fibre optic network is completely separate from the copper phone wire network that ordinarily connects you to the web. Aside from this, the only alternative is to use mobile broadband instead - then you have no requirement for a landline. But, if your internet use is anything other than particularly light, this might just prove to be too slow or too restrictive to need your needs.
  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.
