*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 a wide range of really competitive 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, broadband provider, contract length or price.

It's also important to bear in mind the following factors when comparing broadband packages and 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.
  • Network Checker: We've also introduced a much more accurate broadband availability checker, currently in its beta stage, which shows you what's available to your home, not just your postcode. Check our Network Checker out here.
  • Type of connection: The UK has ADSL, fibre-optic, 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 copper-based BT landline in order to operate. This type of broadband is called ADSL broadband, which stands for 'asymmetric digital subscriber line'.

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.

ADSL is the oldest broadband technology that's still in regular use today, so it is also the slowest and, in most cases, the cheapest type of broadband connection.

Fibre-optic broadband

Fibre broadband has recently overtaken ADSL as the most widely-used broadband connection in the UK. This is a faster type of broadband, due to the use of fibre-optic cables, rather than slower copper-based phone lines, to transfer data either partially or entirely to the home.

There are two main types of fibre broadband:

  • Fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC): This uses fibre-optic cables from your provider's telephone exchange to your local street cabinet, and then existing copper phone lines from there to your home.
  • Fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP): Also known as 'full fibre', this is currently the fastest type of broadband you can get, with fibre-optic cables connecting directly to your home.

Cable broadband

Cable broadband is an alternate type of fibre-optic connection serviced by Virgin Media. It focuses on the connection between your local street cabinet and your home, but is delivered through special coaxial cables instead of BT telephone lines.

Cable broadband is much faster than ADSL or FTTC broadband, providing UK subscribers with speeds of up to 362Mbps depending upon your area and provider. However it's not as fast as FTTP (full fibre) broadband, which goes straight from the exchange to your house.

Mobile broadband

One thing traditional broadband internet providers can't do is give you reliable internet on the go.

Mobile broadband packages run on 3G, 4G and now even 5G mobile phone networks and therefore do not require a landline or cable. It's perhaps best suited to people who don't have access to fibre broadband or those who need to get online while they're on the move, including abroad.

5G is a newer mobile broadband technology and offers much, much faster connection speeds than 4G; however, a 4G 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.
