This is uSwitch's broadband provider directory, where we've outlined the UK’s major broadband companies and provided a brief summary of who they are and what they offer.
There are over 150 broadband providers in operation in the UK, so for obvious reasons, we're only able to list the UK's biggest broadband companies on this page.
Broadband providers come in all shapes and sizes. There are a few very large broadband providers, such as BT and Virgin Media, as well as a host of smaller suppliers. Each have their own pros and cons for their ability to meet your broadband needs.
The sheer range of broadband providers can be slightly overwhelming. This is where broadband comparison sites come in handy, offering you a great way to compare lots of broadband packages at once in a single location, saving you a lot of time and effort.
At uSwitch, we try to help you to choose the right broadband provider for your needs by giving you relevant information on each provider and listing their packages in an easy-to-understand, concise way.
