Broadband, phone and TV providers - everything you need to know

When it comes to choosing a broadband provider, a little research goes a long way - there are plenty of options, after all.

Currently, we list all the UK’s major broadband providers here on broadbandchoices. But we also showcase smaller providers, with a wide variety of different broadband, TV, phone and mobile packages, too.

Question is, what things should you consider when choosing a provider? And which offer the cheapest prices?

Let’s dive straight in...

Compare broadband providers

Look, there’s no such thing as just one provider to suit everyone - each is unique. For example, some will want to shower you with free gifts, while others entice customers with things like free gig tickets or superfast broadband packages.

Over all, though, most providers in the UK offer the same three types of broadband packages: fibre optic broadband, ADSL broadband and wireless broadband.

Another thing to consider when picking a provider is how much data you'll need. Luckily, each offer different types of data allowances, ranging from unlimited data to big data bundles.

Also, some providers, like Sky, for example, specialize in broadband, TV and phone bundles, whilst others might only offer broadband and phone or even broadband on its own.

All that said, before you buy from any one provider, we recommend saving time by checking what’s available in your area. Our postcode checker will show you what’s available.

Compare home phone providers

Alongside broadband, most providers also offer competitive home phone plans packages, too.

You can find anything from evening and weekend calls, anytime calls, international calls and pay as you go tariffs.

Compare TV providers

Whether you’re a movie junkie or a sports fanatic, one of the providers we list will likely have what you’re looking for.

What is the cheapest internet provider?

To be honest, it depends on what you’re looking for. For example, providers like EE and Post Office offer basic packages at cheap prices.

If you’re a sports or movies fan, however, or you rely on the internet for work, providers like Sky, BT or Virgin Media might be the better option for you, as they’ll likely offer better speeds with a few extra perks - like TV package deals, for instance.

Also, to avoid paying over the odds for a package you don’t really need, make sure you pick a package that reflects your current usage. With that in mind, here’s some tips on picking the right package.
