*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.
The deals available at your postcode are subject to local availability. The provider will confirm availability for your line.
We aim to take the strain out of broadband comparison. Good broadband deals aren't just about the price, it's also about what's included in the product, the speeds offered and any extra incentives providers are offering. To balance all of these, we have developed a ranking formula that takes into account deals that are proving to be popular with our customers, that are competitive in the market and have a smooth buying process.
If you prefer, you can sort deals by monthly cost, speed or contract length. You can also choose to show costs as monthly or full contract, which lets you see the total spend over the contract period, including any setup costs.
Uswitch services are provided at no cost to you, but we may receive a commission from the companies we refer you to.
Fast and reliable business broadband is essential to the success of most modern businesses. And with more companies now being run remotely, a good business broadband connection has never been more vital.
If you run a business from home, or are thinking of starting up, it's a good plan to get a business broadband connection rather than relying on your current home broadband service.
As well as giving you a number of added benefits, which we'll go through below, home broadband isn't really designed to be used to run a business. In fact, some business Wi-Fi providers include it in their T&Cs that home broadband must not be used for business or professional purposes. So be sure to check that you're using yours in the right way.
As long as you're operating a genuine business with your broadband, no matter how small, you should be able to find a cheap business broadband and phone package for your home on Uswitch.
If you have an office space, business broadband is a must. And it can be claimed back as a business expense on your company taxes.
Have a look at our Uswitch business broadband deals to find the right package for your organisation when you next switch broadband. Or keep reading to learn about important things to consider when you compare broadband for business deals.

An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a numbered code that identifies every computer connected to a certain network. It then enables them to exchange information with one another over the internet.
With most home broadband connections, you're assigned a dynamic IP address. This means it changes every time you connect. However, with premium business broadband connections you are usually provided with a static IP address, which means that the identifying number always stays the same.
Static IPs enable you to access more advanced internet features that are helpful to a business, especially when running an office full of colleagues who are working together all day.
With a static IP address and you can:

A static IP address is vital if you want to set up a website, manage a server or email account or access your network remotely. A static IP address gives businesses a single, unique identifier for their internet connection, whereas most home broadband users have a dynamic IP address that changes every time they connect.
