*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.
Cuckoo is doing things differently. It offers one simple deal on a flexible one-month rolling contract. So there are no complex deals or end-of-contract price rises.
You’ll also be helping to make a positive difference, as 1% of each bill goes to the Cuckoo Compass. This is used to help get the internet to places it’s needed most, like conflict zones, natural disaster sites and developing communities.
On top of all this, customer satisfaction is high, with an overall rating of ‘Excellent’ on Trustpilot.
Broadband is delivered via the Openreach network, with super-fast average speeds of 67Mb/s.
Cuckoo’s UK-based support team are available for online support every day 9am - 5pm, with phone support available Monday to Friday.
There’s also a comprehensive Help section on the Cuckoo site, which gives you the option to raise a ticket if you have an issue.
If you’re still in your old contract, moving home, or simply not ready to switch yet, you can schedule a go-live date up to 24 months in the future. This means you can still sign up to Cuckoo today, but the switching process will only begin 2 weeks before your actual switch date.
Cuckoo provides all customers with a Technicolor Wi-Fi hub. This is an easy-to-set-up, high-quality wireless router, worth £82+ RRP.
It delivers a strong and reliable Wi-Fi signal, it’s multi-device ready, and it’s optimised for the Cuckoo network. It also dynamically shifts you onto the best frequency depending on how close you are to the router.
