    *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 deals explained

    Fibre-optic broadband is a popular option for broadband customers in the UK, offering faster speeds and a more reliable connection. But what is fibre broadband 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 £26.99
    TalkTalk fibrefrom £26.00

    What's the difference between fibre broadband and 'standard' broadband?

    The main difference between standard ADSL broadband and fibre broadband is the speed it is able to deliver, with fibre-optic cables able to provide a much faster internet connection than the older, copper-based phone lines ADSL relies on.

    Most ADSL broadband services will offer average download speeds of around 10Mbps — though due to the infrastructure there are a lot of variables depending on your line, your distance from the broadband exchange and 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 the same price, sometimes even cheaper, than many ADSL prices.

    But its speeds don't just 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, and would future-proof your home for years to come.

    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. That being said, it's worth checking to see if fibre broadband is still actually cheaper than your current ADSL connection before you decide.

    If you want to stream video, play games online, download large, multi-gigabyte files, or you live in a household with three or more internet users, 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 while it's in use:

    • Social networking: 1Mbps
    • Web browsing: 2Mbps
    • Standard definition Netflix streaming: 3Mbps
    • HD Netflix streaming: 5Mbps
    • 4K Netflix streaming: 25Mbps
    • Online gaming: 3-6Mbps
    • Game streaming (like Google Stadia): 35Mbps

    Of course, different services will have their own requirements. Plus, the more you want to do at once, the more bandwidth you need. 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 if you want to avoid agonising over who gets to use the internet at what time.

    How does fibre broadband work?

    Fibre broadband gains its speed advantage from the way it delivers data. Standard ADSL broadband uses the same copper wires as your landline telephone, whereas fibre broadband uses plastic or glass cables, with pulsing beams of light (hence 'optic') transmitting the data at lightspeed.

    Not only does that allow it to travel significantly faster than copper, but it also won't slow down due to distance since the data is already moving at the fastest conceivable speed.

    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, which only uses fibre-optic cables as far as your local street-level cabinet and then relies on copper phone lines to connect the last part of the journey to your home. This type of connection delivers what is known as 'superfast' speeds.

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

    Given that full fibre runs fibre-optic cables all the way to your home, it's capable of much faster 'ultrafast' and 'gigabit' 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 gigabit broadband?

    Superfast, ultrafast and gigabit may all 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, although Ofcom defines it as above 300Mbps.

    Gigabit broadband only refers to the very fastest connections — those of around 1Gbps or more — and can only be delivered via FTTP, known as full fibre.

    1Gbps can't currently be reached through Wi-Fi signal in the home, however, so you'll have to plug an ethernet cable into your device to reach it. However, a wireless connection can still offer you several hundred megabitsmper second, which for almost every household in the UK is still more than enough.

    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 95% 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 18%, 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 the cost for networks to install the infrastructure, and this is a problem particularly in rural areas.

    It's very expensive for providers to route cabling to remote locations, and as there won't 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 purpose-built flats and 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 broadband providers in the UK offer fibre broadband, with most of these using Openreach's network. However there are some full fibre providers that use their own infrastructure to deliver ultrafast and gigabit 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 speeds but more limited availability, at around 50% of premises.

    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.

    See our guide on how you can get fibre broadband without a phone line.

    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.
