Tesco broadband now costs just £2 a month

The supermarket is now offering the cheapest standalone broadband package available in the UK - it costs less per month than four luxury loo rolls - and Tesco Mobile customers can get it for free.

Tesco has cut the price of its unlimited broadband to £2 per month, making it the cheapest standalone broadband package currently available in the country.

The offer is only available in conjunction with a 12-month Tesco line rental contract, which costs £14.90 a month. Evening and weekend calls are included.

While it's available for £2 - the offer expires on Sunday 30 June, 2013 - Tesco unlimited broadband will cost less per month than a four-pack of Tesco luxury quilted white toilet tissue.

The cheapest broadband package currently available in the UK is an up to 14Mb unlimited broadband offer from EE, which works out at £16.50 per month including line rental.

However, while this offer is 40p per month cheaper than Tesco's, you must be an existing EE, Orange or T-Mobile mobile customer to be eligible for it.

Tesco Mobile customers can get Tesco unlimited broadband for free for 12 months if they sign up to it before Tuesday 31 December, 2013, although they will still have to pay line rental.

The next cheapest standalone broadband package in the country is an up to 14Mb broadband with 10GB usage available exclusively through broadbandchoices.co.uk, which costs £18.24 per month including line rental.

Tesco Clubcard holders will receive one Clubcard point for every £1 they spend on the offer and those signing up for the package will be able to talk to Tesco Broadband's UK-based call centres if they have any queries.

While it is an unlimited broadband package, unlike unlimited broadband from BT, Plusnet and Sky, Tesco's deal is subject to a fair use policy, meaning particularly heavy downloaders could see their speed restricted at peak times.

Tesco cut the cost of its unlimited broadband to £2.50 per month for 12 months in February 2012, which at the time made it the cheapest broadband in Britain.

A Tesco Broadband spokesperson said: "Slashing our broadband prices again this year means that, for just £2 a month, British families can download music, play games online and stream films to their hearts' content.

"It is our way of rewarding Tesco customers and we hope it goes some way to lightening the financial load."
