*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.

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 maket and have a smooth switching process.

If you prefer, you can sort deals by the average monthly cost, which is all of the costs - including any compulsory upfront costs such as router delivery or installation fee - divided by the length of the contract. Or you can sort by the total contract cost for all packages which let’s you see the total spend for the whole contract period

uSwitch services are provided at no cost to you, but we may receive a commission from the companies we refer you to.

Broadband deals explained

For years, BT held a monopoly on home landline connections. Nowadays, however, you can get your landline through a number of other companies — including internet providers — who offer a range of cheap line rental deals.

Some internet service providers (ISPs) don't even require you to have a landline in order to offer broadband. Virgin Media's packages, for instance, run on cable as opposed to copper phone wires, so you don't need a landline. The upshot is that you can save a substantial sum of money because you don't have to pay line rental every month.

Broadband and free line rental packages:

Some broadband providers used to advertise 'free line rental packages', but thanks to new rules from the ASA — who conducted a study and found that most consumers couldn't work out the entire monthly cost of their broadband — providers now show 'all-in' pricing. From now on, the price you see listed is the actual price you'll pay.

So instead of luring customers with promises of 'free line rental' or 'free broadband,' ISPs are moving to offer lower monthly pricing as a whole.

Don't need a landline at all for your broadband?

If you're someone who doesn't use their landline connection for anything other than broadband, why not cut your monthly bills down by getting your broadband without a phone line rental? You can do this by signing up for cable broadband packages offered by Virgin Media, which don't require you to have a landline at all.

In the era of mobile phones, Skype and other internet phone call services, broadband without line rental deals are sure to become more and more popular in years to come.

Mobile broadband

Mobile broadband is another option for those who don't want to pay landline on top of their broadband connection. This type of broadband uses mobile networks instead of phone lines or fibre-optic cables.
