*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.

Broadband deals explained

How do you find the best internet provider for you or the best internet package for your needs?

Many people think that getting broadband packages at home for the first time or switching from their current broadband provider is difficult, but it doesn't have to be.

At Uswitch.com, we show you all our best internet package deals, displayed with all the key features highlighted so that you can choose our best internet provider and broadband package quickly and easily.

We also include a “price details” button so you can see a breakdown of the costs associated with each internet package — such as line rental, offer cost and regular price — to help you make an informed decision.

Compare broadband packages

To find the best internet package for you, you can filter all of our deals according to popularity, speed, download allowance, contract length or price.

It's also important to bear in mind the following factors when comparing broadband packages and broadband internet providers:

  • Broadband availability: Very few areas of the UK have access to every broadband package on the market. Enter your postcode into our broadband postcode checker to find out which internet packages are available in your area.
  • Type of connection: The UK has ADSL, cable and mobile broadband, each of which has its own pros and cons. You can find out more information below.

ADSL and ADSL2 broadband

Most home broadband packages require an active BT landline in order to operate. This type of broadband is called ADSL broadband. If you have an active BT line, you can either choose broadband packages that offer standard ADSL, offered by the majority of internet providers in the UK, or ADSL2, which is faster but less widely available.

Alternatively, you can switch your BT landline to your new ISP's landline service and get inclusive calls as offered in broadband packages by top broadband providers like TalkTalk and Sky, among others.

Cable broadband

Cable broadband is available from fibre-optic broadband provider Virgin Media, Plusnet, TalkTalk, Sky, John Lewis and BT's Infinity service. Cable broadband is similar to ADSL broadband but is delivered through fibre-optic cables instead of BT telephone lines. Cable broadband is also much faster than ADSL broadband and provides UK subscribers with speeds of up to 330Mbps, depending upon your area and provider.

Mobile broadband

Whilst they may offer the cheapest broadband service, one thing traditional broadband internet providers can't do is give you reliable internet on the go.

Mobile broadband packages run on 3G and 4G mobile phone networks and therefore do not require a landline or cable. Mobile broadband is perhaps best suited to people looking for greater flexibility in their communications and who need to get online while they're on the move, including abroad.

4G is a newer mobile broadband technology and offers much, much faster connection speeds than 3G; however, a 3G connection is much more widely available.

What broadband package is best for me?

There are several factors to take into account when choosing a provider. Key questions include the speed, the monthly cost, any one-off setup fees and the length of contract you'll have to sign up for. Finding the best broadband package means understanding what you want to use it for, how much you want to pay and what extras are on offer.

How do I know what broadband speed I need?

The two main factors to consider when determining the right speed are the number of users and the expected usage. Here are a few rough guidelines:

  • Below 30Mbps: 1 or 2 users, mainly web browsing
  • 30-60Mbps: 3+ users, infrequent streaming and gaming
  • 60-100Mbps: 5+ users, frequent HD streaming, multiple connections
  • 100Mbps+: 8+ users, multiple simultaneous streaming, large downloads

What's the difference between ADSL and cable broadband?

ADSL broadband delivers data services using the same copper cabling that connects your phone, and requires an active landline. Cable broadband uses dedicated fibre-optic cables to provide services. This makes it much faster than ADSL, with speeds of up to 512Mbps on offer, although its availability is more restricted.
