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.

How good is broadband in Leeds?

Broadband in Leeds is generally very good, with most locations able to enjoy fast fibre services.

Many locations may also be able to access ultrafast Virgin Media services, while full fibre services, which deliver speeds up to 20 times faster than the national average, are rapidly switching on in certain areas, with Openreach making Leeds one of the first cities in the UK to receive FTTP services when it first started rolling out.

These ultrafast services may not be available everywhere just yet, however, so it pays to use our postcode checker to find out exactly what packages are available where you live and what speeds you can expect to receive.

How to find the best broadband deals in Leeds

With so many options available, it's important you can easily compare deals and see what features and extras are available.

There are a range of factors to consider when looking for broadband deals in Leeds, but one key issue is the speed you receive. You don't want to end up with a package that's too slow, but at the same time, not everyone will require a blazingly-fast, high-speed service.

If you're only going to be browsing the web, keeping up with social networks and doing some online shopping, a speed of 10Mbps should be enough for your home.

But for those looking to stream video, Netflix recommends a minimum speed of 3Mbps for standard streaming and 5Mbps for HD per device — with the BBC's iPlayer recommendation slightly less. And if you want to stream smoothly in 4K ultra high-definition, you'll need a minimum speed of 24Mbps. So to do things like this, you'll need a superfast broadband speed of at least 30Mbps to handle your household's demand for data.

Generally speaking, the bigger your home and the more people who want to connect at any given time, the higher the download speed you'll need to cope with the demand.
