All of the UK's major internet providers offer broadband deals in Leeds, while there are also a large number of smaller, independent providers operating in the city. With so much choice available to consumers, it pays to compare broadband packages to find the best deal for you. Here are some of the more notable service providers.
TalkTalk is one of the UK's best-value broadband providers and offers consumers in Leeds a choice of standard broadband, superfast fibre and even faster boosted fibre, as well as additional services such as home phone and premium TV services, which can be added or removed from your deal at any time. These all come with the firm's Fixed Price Guarantee, which ensures customers won't see any increase in monthly costs throughout their contract.
An ideal choice for entertainment fans and those who don't want to commit to a long-term contract, NOW offers a range of broadband deals with the option for a fixed term or a rolling monthly contract that can be cancelled at any time. It offers a simple choice of standard, fibre or boosted fibre deals, as well as a range of Entertainment, Movies and Sky Sports TV passes.
Plusnet offers a range of easy-to-understand internet and phone offerings for both standard and fibre broadband, and is a great choice for people who want straightforward services at a great price. Plusnet customers also enjoy the firm's award-winning UK-based customer service, which secured the Best Customer Service Provider prize at the 2019 uSwitch Broadband Awards, as voted for by members of the public.
BT offers a choice of standard and fibre broadband deals in Leeds, as well as faster boosted fibre offerings. The firm provides home phone packages and TV services, including BT Sport. It also offers customers a range of extras, including free cloud storage, antivirus software for up to 15 devices and its Complete Wi-Fi service, which guarantees reliable wireless broadband coverage everywhere in your home for a small additional monthly fee.
Another great choice for entertainment lovers, Sky offers the UK's widest range of TV services in addition to broadband only and broadband and phone deals, while its Sky Q router is one of the best on the market. It gives users many dedicated entertainment, sports and movie channels, as well as a range of parental controls and Wi-Fi management options to help keep track of kids' time online, making it an ideal choice for busy families.
Broadband in Leeds is generally very good, with most locations able to enjoy fast fibre services. Many locations may also be able to access even faster cable services, while fibre-to-the-premises services, which deliver speeds up to 20 times faster than the national average, are being rolled out in certain areas, with Openreach making Leeds one of the first cities in the UK to receive FTTP services back in early 2018.
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.
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 1.5Mbps should be enough for each device, while for those looking to stream video, Netflix recommends a minimum speed of 3Mbps for standard streaming and 5Mbps for HD — with the BBC's iPlayer recommendation slightly less. However, if you want to stream smoothly in 4K ultra high-definition, you'll need a minimum speed of 24Mbps.
You also need to think about the number of devices that will be connecting to your wireless network. 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.Back to top
