    *The "average" speed displayed in Mb represents the speed available to 50% of customers with this product during peak time (between 8pm and 10pm). 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 average speed displayed on our 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 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.

    Fibre broadband explained

    Fibre-optic broadband is one of the most common options for people in the UK. But what is it, and how does it differ from other types of broadband in terms of speed, availability and range of providers? Here's everything you need to know before you compare fibre broadband deals.

    Virgin Media fibrefrom £26.00
    Sky fibrefrom £27.00
    BT fibrefrom £27.99
    TalkTalk fibrefrom £23.50

    What's the difference between fibre and regular broadband?

    The main difference between regular ADSL broadband and fibre broadband is the speed it is able to deliver, with fibre-optic broadband able to provide internet much faster than older, copper-based technology.

    Most standard broadband services will offer average download speeds of around 11Mbps — though there are a lot of variables depending on your line, your distance from the broadband exchange or how far you are from your street cabinet. So in reality, users can receive anything from around 16Mbps to less than 1Mbps.

    Most fibre broadband services, on the other hand, start at around 36Mbps — some three times faster. It's worth noting that fibre packages at their lowest speeds are often as expensive, sometimes even cheaper, than out-of-contract ADSL prices.

    But fibre broadband speeds don't stop there, as fibre broadband deals are offered at a range of speeds up to around 1Gbps (depending on the type of fibre connection). That's about a hundred times faster than copper-based broadband.

    Do I need fibre broadband?

    If you're in a small household and only use the internet for browsing social media and sending emails, standard broadband should do the job. But if you want to stream video, play games online, download large, multi-gigabyte files or you live in a household of more than three people, the speed advantage offered by fibre broadband is invaluable.

    Take a look at these examples to see the broadband speed you need — bear in mind this is per device:

    • Social networking: 1Mbps
    • Web browsing: 2Mbps
    • Standard definition Netflix streaming: 3Mbps
    • High definition Netflix streaming: 5Mbps
    • 4K Netflix streaming: 25Mbps
    • Online gaming: 3-6Mbps

    Of course, different services will have their own requirements. Plus, the more you want to do at once, the more bandwidth you need, so if you've got four people wanting to watch Netflix at the same time, you'll need to account for four times the minimum recommended speed for that activity.

    How does fibre broadband work?

    Fibre broadband gains its speed advantage from the way it delivers data. Standard broadband — also known as ADSL broadband — uses the same copper wire as your landline telephone to transmit data. However, fibre broadband uses plastic or glass cables, with light beams used to transmit the data at the speed of light.

    Types of fibre broadband

    There are two main versions of fibre broadband. The most common is known as fibre to the cabinet, also known as FTTC or superfast broadband, which only uses these fibre-optic cables as far as the street-level cabinet, relying on copper phone lines to connect the last part of the journey to your home.

    Then there is fibre to the premises (FTTP), which is also called fibre to the home (FTTH) or full fibre. As the name suggests, this does away with copper completely and runs a fibre-optic line right to your property.

    Given that FTTP runs fibre cables all the way to your home, it's capable of much faster 'ultrafast' speeds, but it can be a lot more expensive as a result.

    To learn more about how fibre broadband works, take a look at our detailed fibre broadband guide.

    What’s the difference between superfast, ultrafast and hyperfast broadband?

    Superfast, ultrafast and hyperfast may sound like marketing buzzwords, but they actually have specific definitions referring to the speeds you're able to achieve.

    A superfast connection means download speeds in excess of 30Mbps. Ultrafast, according to most broadband providers, applies to speeds of 100Mbps and higher, though Ofcom defines it as above 300Mbps.

    Hyperfast broadband only refers to the very fastest connections — those of around 1Gbps or more — and can only be delivered as FTTP. They also can't be reached through Wi-Fi signal in the home, so will have to be plugged into your device with an ethernet cable as a wired connection to reach their full potential.

    Can I get fibre broadband in my area?

    The vast majority of homes in the UK are able to receive fibre broadband from at least one supplier. According to figures from Ofcom, superfast broadband is available to 96% of UK homes.

    Most connections are delivered as FTTC via Openreach's networks. Meanwhile, the number of UK homes able to access full fibre (FTTP) stands at roughly 12%, though there are a variety of providers rolling out new networks over the coming years to increase this figure.

    You can use our broadband postcode checker to find out what types of broadband are available in your area.

    Why can't I get fibre broadband?

    There are several reasons why some homes still can't get fibre broadband. One of the most common is cost, and this is a particular problem in rural areas.

    It is very expensive to route cabling to remote locations, and as there will not be many users, fibre broadband providers may not deem it economically viable to invest so much money for a relatively small number of potential customers.

    However, even if you live in a city or suburb, this is no guarantee of fibre broadband availability. Some areas are so densely populated that there simply isn't room to add additional capacity for fibre connections. Many apartment blocks are also poorly served because of the way they are wired internally.

    If you can't get fibre, there are still some speedy options available in the form of mobile broadband. Take a look at our latest mobile broadband deals.

    Which broadband providers offer fibre broadband?

    Almost all providers in the UK offer fibre broadband, with most of these using Openreach's network, although there are a few full fibre providers that use their own infrastructure to deliver ultrafast and hyperfast services. Therefore, it pays to compare fibre broadband deals to ensure you're getting the best broadband package.

    BT is the UK's most popular provider of fibre broadband services, though Sky and TalkTalk also have large market shares. Virgin Media, the other big provider in the UK, runs its own fibre-based cable network, with faster average speeds but more limited availability.

    Here are some of the fibre broadband providers you can compare deals with today.

    Can I get fibre without phone line rental?

    If fibre-optic broadband is delivered to your home via copper cabling as part of an FTTC network, then you will still need a working phone line to deliver it. However, if you have cable or FTTP options available, you can do away with this requirement.

    There are a range of providers that offer cheap fibre broadband without a phone line. See our guide on how to get it.

    Can I get fibre broadband-only deals?

    Bundling fibre broadband with TV is very popular because the faster broadband speeds make for smoother TV and streaming connections. A number of major broadband providers often bundle fibre and TV together because of this.

    If you don't need TV, however, it's easy to find fibre broadband-only deals, too. You can compare these deals on our broadband only deals page and clicking the 'fibre broadband' filter.

    What is fibre broadband?

    Fibre broadband uses fibre-optic cables to connect your home, which carry data via beams of light. These cables offer greater speeds over longer distances, providing faster and more reliable performance than older, copper-based ADSL lines.

    How affordable is fibre?

    Fibre broadband in the UK is very affordable, with the cheapest deals often only a few pounds per month more expensive than much slower standard broadband. Compare fibre packages and you're sure to find a deal that suits your price range.

    What is full fibre?

    Most fibre connections only use these cables as far as the street-level cabinet, with copper connecting the last stretch to the home. Full fibre, however, uses fibre all the way to a customer's front door, offering far higher speeds than other fibre connections.
