If you shared information on how much you pay for your broadband, your results will highlight deals with an annual saving of £5 or more. Annual savings show what you could save in the first 12 months. Your savings are the difference between the annual cost you entered for your current deal and the deal you could switch to. The annual savings amount does not include:
  • setup costs or one-off payments
  • vouchers, bill credit or other goods
  • annual price increases

*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.

Finding the best broadband in Glasgow

For those who only use the internet occasionally for casual browsing and social media, standard broadband with speeds of around 11Mbps should be more than adequate. However, if you plan on using streaming services regularly or have multiple users in the home connecting simultaneously, a fibre deal is likely to be a better option.

Therefore, it's important to understand what services you expect to use your broadband for, as well as what extras will be useful to you. For example, if you have multiple users connecting via Wi-Fi, a provider that offers a quality wireless router will be a must, while extras like parental controls and the ability to manage your connection easily via an app may be useful to some users.

How fast is Wi-Fi in Glasgow?

Like most UK cities, the exact speed you can achieve will depend on where you live, and the quality of services can vary from place to place. While most locations can enjoy fast fibre solutions, there may still be some streets where this is not available. In general, most residences can expect a speed of around 11Mbps for standard ADSL broadband, or 36Mbps for entry-level fibre services.

Although the majority of places can access fibre broadband, some faster services such as Virgin Media's cable network and FTTP may be more limited in their coverage.

Some locations can also benefit from even faster fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) services, which is the fastest broadband technology currently available in the U.K.

If you're looking to bundle multiple services, such as a broadband and TV packages, you'll be able to get them from triple-play providers like BT, Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk. You could also get TV add-ons through smaller providers like Plusnet and NOW Broadband.

How expensive are Wi-Fi deals in Glasgow?

However, even on the cheapest deals, you should still expect unlimited downloads, so there should be no need to worry about usage caps.

Fibre broadband prices start a little higher, though there are often offers available that can make your effective monthly bills even cheaper than this, with some providers throwing in extras such as shopping vouchers, cashback of other freebies.

At the premium end of the market, the most expensive broadband deals in Glasgow are a few times this. As well as lightning-fast download speeds, these offers ensure your home can enjoy a full TV and broadband package including premium sports, cinema and entertainment channels, in addition to phone services.
