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

Finding broadband-only deals with no landline

If you rarely use your home phone, having to pay for line rental along with your broadband can be really annoying, but they often come as an all or nothing package. So, where can you get broadband without a phone line? And can you save money by ditching the landline? broadbandchoices reveals all...

Broadband-only deals - do they exist?

Although your broadband and home phone may feel like completely separate services to you, both require the same thing in order for you to use them - a working phone line at your house.

This is why broadband providers expect you to pay line rental when you take a broadband package with them.

The only major exception to this is Virgin Media - which supplies broadband via its cable network so you can have broadband without needing to have a functioning phone line. That means if you live in an area covered by the Virgin Media network - currently about 50% of the UK - you can avoid paying for line rental.

Another broadband-only provider, though a less widespread one, is Relish. Operating only in central London, it offers mobile broadband, similar to 4G - meaning a phone line isn't needed.

Check whether Virgin Media or Relish are available to you by popping your postcode into our postcode checker on the right and seeing if Virgin Media packages appear in the results, it only takes a couple of seconds.

Getting broadband and phone from separate providers

For most providers, paying for line rental along with your broadband package is unavoidable, however not all providers insist that you take their line rental package.

This gives you the option of getting your broadband from one provider and using one of the cheaper providers for your home phone service.

If you have an existing landline deal that you are happy with, or have found a great value deal elsewhere, this could be an option for you.

Plusnet is one of the only providers that’ll allow you to take your home phone services from another provider (as long as it is a BT based landline provider) in order to get its broadband. However, you’ll pay more for your broadband as a result, so make sure the line rental you’re paying the other provider is cheap enough to cover the difference - or it's won’t be such a bargain.

What can you save by paying line rental upfront?

Everyone loves a discount, and it’s doubly great when it’s a discount on something you have to pay for anyway.

The good news is, most of the major providers, including BT, Plusnet, TalkTalk and Virgin Media offer substantial savings on line rental if you pay for 12 months upfront.

You can save between 15-30% on the annual cost of your landline this way.

Mobile Broadband - an alternative to home broadband?

With the arrival of 4G there is no denying that mobile broadband has become a real contender in the broadband stakes. However, it isn't a like for like alternative to your fixed line, a.k.a. home broadband connection just yet.

If you’re outside of the 4G network, the speed you get on 3G or even 2G mobile networks will feel distinctly sluggish compared to your home connection and will make more significant online activity such as streaming video, downloading large files and so on a complete no-no.

There is also the issue of data limits. Home broadband packages increasingly come with unlimited data allowances, but with mobile broadband deals it's far less common and much more pricy. If you get a package with a fixed data limit you'll have to pay if you go over your limit during the month.

And remember, if mobile broadband is replacing your home broadband you’re likely to use it far more than you would if you had broadband at home too.

Bundling can save you money

Although you may not use your home phone and wish you didn’t have to foot the bill for it, it’s worth bearing in mind that when your home phone service is added to broadband, TV and even your mobile phone services, it can save you a tidy sum on the full cost.

Although it’s currently only Virgin Media that offers packages covering all four services, Sky, BT and TalkTalk all offer packages that include your broadband, TV and home phone. The combined cost can save you loads on the equivalent separate services making the line rental feel less painful.

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, 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. 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. 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. Why can’t I get Virgin Media?
    Virgin Media has its own separate cable network to deliver the provider’s broadband, phone and TV services, which now covers a little over half of the UK. If you live in a town or city, or at least a built-up suburb of one, then chances are you’ll have access to Virgin Media. The network is always growing, though, so if you can’t get it now, that doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t be able to get it in the future. Enter your postcode into our comparison tool to find out if Virgin Media is available where you live.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
