*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.

Contract discount compares the promotional price currently offered across all services (broadband, line rental, TV, etc.) against the monthly cost of the same package without promotions, multiplied by the duration of the contract.

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.

Broadband deals explained

An IP — or internet protocol — address is a number by which your computer is identified on the internet.

Think of it like your phone number, but for your computer. There are two types of IP addresses: dynamic IP addresses and static/fixed IP addresses.

This guide will explain what they are and their relative advantages and disadvantages.

Static/fixed addresses are where a computer has the same address all the time. So every time you log into the internet, you have the same address. This means your computer can easily be recognised by others.

Static IPs and business broadband

Static IPs are especially popular with business broadband users. See our business broadband page to compare all business broadband packages.

Dynamic IP addresses are where a new number is assigned to your computer regularly. This is more common among domestic broadband users, due to that fact that it creates efficiency within a network.

Your ISP may well offer a fixed IP address as part of your broadband package — although they may charge you an additional monthly fee for one.

Advantages of fixed IP addresses

Having a static IP address has advantages mainly for more involved internet users, such as people who run businesses or gamers.

For example, with a fixed IP address you can set up an email account directly to your computer without needing to use an email provider such as Hotmail or Gmail.

This is of particularly use if you have your own business, especially as having a static IP address allows you to run your own website server. Static IP addresses also enable you to access your computer remotely so you can log into your computer wherever you are in the world.

Additionally, fixed IP addresses provide you with a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) server, which allows you to transfer information between computers easily and efficiently.

It also means you can operate a game server, meaning you can run a private online game to your liking. Fixed IP addresses also reduce downtime, which can really affect gaming.

Disadvantages of static/fixed IP addresses

The main problem with static IP addresses is that they make your computer more vulnerable to hackers: Because the address doesn’t change, a hacker can attack your computer over and over again.

If your computer has sufficient protection, such as a firewall, it should hopefully negate that problem. Another potential issue is that if you're running your own server for games or a website, you may have to run your computer all the time.
