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

*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.

Is ultrafast broadband ultra-worth it?

What is ultrafast broadband?

When we say ‘ultrafast’, we’re referring to broadband packages that offer download speeds of between 300Mb and 1Gb.

That is, as the name implies, fast. Really, really fast - note the italics - and well above the speeds offered by the most widely available fibre optic broadband packages.

Most of them are superfast. BT’s top end Superfast Fibre package, for example, offers average download speeds of 67Mb. That’s plenty quick - well suited to shared houses and heavy users - but ultrafast blows it out of the water. It’s another class of fast.

Or to put it another way, if superfast broadband is Sonic the Hedgehog, ultrafast is like getting him wired on a six-pack of energy drinks and handing him a jetpack.

That extra speed throws up all kinds of possibilities for the humble user. Ultrafast broadband means you can download 4K films or large video games in mere minutes, or watch a movie online with virtually no buffering, even if everyone else sharing the connection is doing the same.

That sounds great! Why don’t I already have it?

The biggest problem with ultrafast broadband is that it’s not widely available, mainly the preserve of limited coverage fibre specialists like Gigaclear. It’s not just the availability that’s limited - ultrafast broadband is also quite a bit more expensive than most fibre optic packages.

For those reasons, we recommend superfast broadband for now. It’s fast enough to support pretty much whatever you need to do online, and although some areas are still unable to get it, the majority of premises in the UK now can.

If you’re dead set on getting ultrafast broadband, your options are currently rather limited. But not non-existent…

Which providers offer ultrafast broadband?

Most of the UK’s biggest providers - including Plusnet, Sky, EE and Vodafone - don't offer a widely available ultrafast home package in the UK. At least, not yet (see the next section for more on that).

However, a few providers do have something speedy up their sleeves. They include:

  • Virgin Media - You can get its fibre optic broadband with average speeds of 362Mb.
  • BT - Sells an ultrafast 'G.fast' package with average speeds of 300Mb. Not only is it fast, it also has a 100Mb speed guarantee, which means BT will pay you if your speed drops below that threshold.
  • Talk Talk - The Faster 150 Fibre plan gets you average download speeds of 140Mb; and for the 4k ultra HD super-fans and gamers, the Faster 300 Fibre delivers average download speeds of 290Mb.
  • Niche and local providers - There are plenty of tiny, local, and niche broadband providers around the UK that offer ultrafast speeds. Look out for ones like Gigaclear, for instance.

Is ultrafast broadband available in my area?

Ultrafast broadband is ultra-limited right now. There's a chance you can get BT, Talk Talk or Virgin Media's top-end package - but for anything faster than that, you may be out of luck. That said, you might be one of the fortunate few, so use the postcode checker at the top of this page to find out if you can get it in your area.

If not, you’ll have to wait for the big providers to start rolling it out. As for when that is… at present we don’t know. They clearly want to - BT has been trialling its G.Fast technology, which allows for speeds of between 300Mb and 500Mb. It’s expected to start rolling it out across the country proper at some point in the future.

When it does, companies that share the BT Openreach infrastructure, like Sky, TalkTalk, Plusnet and EE, will presumably be able to offer their own ultrafast packages too.

Fibre optic broadband

If ultrafast isn't available where you are, your best bet is to go for a fibre optic package. These offer average download speeds around 67Mb - plenty fast for the majority of households. Even better, it's widely available all across the country, and you'll have a nice big choice of providers to choose from.

FAQs

  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. 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 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 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. 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.
  6. 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.

  7. 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.
