Our expert's verdict
Michael Phillips, broadbandchoices product director, said: "The John Lewis brand is respected as a mark of quality and, with decent download speeds and a range of options catering to different needs, it's likely to be a attractive proposition for some people.
"However, it's far from the cheapest option on the market, so it's worth comparing providers to see if one of them could give you more for a better price."
