*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.
London offers a wide range of broadband packages and speeds, from budget-friendly deals for casual users to lightning-quick gaming and streaming services for large households with multiple devices.
Whatever you want to use your internet connection for, there's sure to be a broadband deal that meets your needs.
There are a wide range of internet providers available to residents in the capital. Here are some of the best options.
The UK's largest provider of broadband services, BT offers a range of deals with average speeds of up to 67Mbps, and some ultrafast offers in excess of 100Mbps in London.
Users can also take advantage of a range of add-ons and features, including the firm's powerful Smart Hub Wi-Fi router and the optional BT Halo Wi-Fi guarantee, which guarantees good wireless coverage throughout your home.
One of the UK's best-value providers, Plusnet is also notable for the quality of its UK-based customer service.
A perfect choice for avid TV watchers fans, Sky offers a wide range of broadband, phone, TV and mobile deals, so you can mix and match what you get to your exact requirements.
It offers superfast packages up to 59Mbps and ultrafast deals all the way up to 900Mbps, depending on the availability in your area. But also, you can access a huge range of entertainment, film and sports packages on offer, thanks to its flagship Sky Q TV bundles.
Well-known for its range of affordable services, TalkTalk has great value packages and excellent customer service, plus a range of additional TV options.
Vodafone supplies some of the fastest broadband speeds in the country, and offers very comprehensive Pro broadband packages stocked with internet backups and enticing add-ons.It uses the Openreach network for its low-cost superfast packages up to 67Mbps, and then CityFibre's full fibre network to deliver ultrafast speeds up to 900Mbps.
When choosing a broadband provider in London, there are a range of factors to consider.
As well as the price, you should think about what you'll be doing online and the speed you'll need to access these effectively. It's also important to think about what additional Wi-Fi options are available (such as extenders) to ensure you can get connected anywhere in your home.
There are a range of speeds on offer for people living in London. The fastest widely available speeds are from Virgin Media, which offers packages of up to 1.1Gbps through its dedicated cable network. But Community Fibre, which is only available to some areas of London, offers up to 3Gbps connections at the moment.
Elsewhere, most providers offer packages with different speeds, with the majority of companies allowing customers to choose average speeds of around 67Mbps, 36Mbps or 11Mbps.
Coverage may vary throughout London's boroughs, however, so it pays to check what's available to your home. Our postcode checker can show you all the options available for your address and what speeds you can expect.
Not everyone will need the fastest available speeds. Instead, what defines a good broadband speed will depend on what you intend to use your connection for. For everyday web browsing and occasional streaming in standard definition, a speed of 1.5Mbps should be adequate, while Netflix recommends a minimum speed of 3Mbps for standard streaming and 5Mbps for HD.
If you want to stream smoothly in 4K ultra high-definition, however, you'll need a minimum speed of 24Mbps. For gaming, console makers suggest a minimum of around 3Mbps to play online — though if you want to download the latest title direct to your home, you'll need a much faster connection, with a fibre service recommended to ensure these large downloads can be completed as quickly as possible.
It's also important to note that the more people you have in your home using the internet at once, the higher the speed you'll need. So a home where only a couple of devices will be running can cope with a much slower speed than one where multiple gadgets will be competing for the available bandwidth.
