*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.

What are the best broadband deals in Manchester?

There are many great broadband deals to choose from for customers in Manchester, with speeds and prices to suit any budget and meet the demands of any household.

Manchester broadband options include standard ADSL broadband, superfast fibre and cable solutions, while some locations can also benefit from even faster fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) services. This offers the fastest broadband technology currently available in the UK and is available from providers including Openerach, Hyperoptic and Virgin Media.

More than 95% of premises in the city have access to superfast broadband speeds of 24Mbps and above, while Virgin Media's dedicated cable network is available to more than 700,000 properties in the region.

Which internet providers are in Manchester?

All of the UK's major internet providers offer services in Manchester, so there is a lot of choice on offer. Consumers should not only look at the prices, but also the speeds, the contract length and what extras are on offer when comparing broadband providers.

Here are some of the most popular options in Manchester.

Sky Broadband

Ideal for entertainment fans, Sky offers a wide range of broadband, phone, TV and mobile deals, so you can mix and match what's included in your package. With a huge range of entertainment, film and sports packages on offer, it's also great for families thanks to its range of kids content and comprehensive parental controls.

Plusnet

Plusnet offers some of the best-value broadband deals in the UK, with standard and fibre options at affordable prices. It's also notable for the quality of its UK-based customer service, winning the Best Customer Service Provider prize in the 2019 uSwitch Broadband Awards.

Virgin Media

Virgin Media offers some of the fastest broadband speeds in Manchester, as well as a wide range of extras. With entertainment, sports and movie packages available through its powerful V6 set-top box, there's sure to be something for everyone on a Virgin Media bundle deal, but you can also get broadband-only deals if all you're interested in is fast speeds.

Vodafone Broadband

Vodafone only offers fibre broadband packages, with no slower, standard broadband deals available, so it's unsuprising the firm focuses on speed. Those signing up for Vodafone broadband deals in Manchester benefit from the company's Ultimate Speed Guarantee, which gives you money back off your bill if speeds fail to reach a minimum standard. Meanwhile, if you're already a Vodafone mobile customer, you can enjoy a discount on the monthly cost of your broadband.

BT Broadband

BT is the UK's largest broadband provider and offers a range of deals with average speeds of up to 67Mbps in Manchester. As well as the firm's powerful Smart Hub Wi-Fi router and the optional Complete Wi-Fi, BT customers can take advantage of a wide range of extras, including powerful antivirus software, free cloud storage and access to five million Wi-Fi hotspots around the country.

How to get ultrafast broadband in Manchester

There are several ways in which consumers can get ultrafast broadband in Manchester, which is defined as download speeds of more than 100Mbps.

The most common way will be through a Virgin Media cable. This can provide speeds of up to 516Mbps and will require an engineer to visit your home and install the necessary hardware. Some places may even be able to benefit from even faster services of over 1Gbps with the firm's latest technology, announced in October 2019.

Some locations may also be able to secure fibre-to-the-premises services, which run fibre-optic cables right to your front door, whereas most standard fibre services still rely on copper cables for the last bit of the journey. Again, an engineer may need to come to your home in order to hook up the right hardware.

Companies offering this service include Hyperoptic. Although this firm focuses its attention mainly on large apartment buildings, there are hundreds of buildings in Manchester and the surrounding areas that are connected to this network.

To find out if your home can access ultrafast speeds, you can use uSwitch's postcode checker, which will show you all the services that you can access at your home, what speeds are available and the prices you can expect to pay.
