Deal information

*The "up to" speed displayed in Mb is the maximum possible speed you are likely to receive for this product. The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up - this may differ from the speed displayed in the table.

The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.

Broadband deals explained

Families have quite specific needs when it comes to broadband. For instance, with a household full of people, you're much more likely to work through your monthly usage allowance than a person who lives alone.

What's more, if more than one of you is going online simultaneously, it's vital that you've got a strong wireless connection throughout the house.

To help you ensure you know what to consider when signing up for a broadband package that's right for your family, below we've summarised some of the key factors you need to consider. It should detail everything you need to help you find the right package for your requirements.

Wireless broadband

With home PCs, laptops and games consoles being used by all members of the family, often at the same time, broadband for families has a lot of demands to fulfil.

If you are running more than one device on your broadband connection - and who isn't these days? - wireless broadband is the option for you. Most ISPs now include free wireless routers with their packages as standard.

Fast broadband

It is worth noting that the more devices using the broadband connection at once, the slower the overall download speed becomes. Hence, packages that offer higher speeds are the ones to look for if your family is interested in downloading lots of music, playing games over the internet and watching IPTV.

See our fast broadband page to compare fast broadband packages suitable for families.

Unlimited broadband

As well as higher speeds, you should consider the download allowance of your broadband package too. To this end, you would do well to look over ISPs who offer unlimited downloads with their broadband products.

When it comes to "unlimited downloads", it is important to note that some ISPs have fair usage policies attached to prevent a minority of heavy users taking up all the bandwidth and slowing the connection for other users at peak times.

Be sure and have a look at the terms and conditions of each package so that you fully understand what you are signing up for.

Broadband security

Some ISPs provide extensive parental controls to try and help you make sure your children are safe on the internet and which filter out URLs they consider unsuitable. A small problem here is that selectively changing the level of restrictions according to which member of the family is using the computer is not always easy. One way around this is for different family members to have separate log-ins.

Another way providers help keep your kids safe is by allowing you to limit the time your child is on the internet, as well as offering to email you reports which list the websites that your child has visited.

Third-party software

There are also other measures that you can take yourself, for example buying software such as Net Nanny. Here instead of the ISPs filtering the URLs your child can access, this software does the job.

There a couple of pitfalls with this though, in that you have to update the software regularly. You are also relying on the manufacturer of the software you have bought to decide what is unsuitable for your children.

It’s not just children that need to be careful on the internet. Everyone needs to be vigilant online in an era where credit card fraud and identity fraud is rife. To guard against this, you should follow advice from your banks about internet security and never give out personal details.

ISPs can provide very comprehensive family protection. But although you can find a plethora of software to help, you should be careful not to rely solely on them.

No matter how good they are, measures such as these cannot be 100 per cent safe. If you’re worried about your children then the best way to protect them is to supervise them as much as possible, and try to get the whole family to be as careful they can.
