*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.
Gas and energy provider SSE (Scottish and Southern Energy) has been offering home phone and broadband since 2015. Its broadband and home phone deals are available to existing SSE customers, as well as those who take their energy from another supplier.
SSE broadband bundles offer speeds of 63Mbps on its premium fibre product and up to 11Mbps with its standard broadband service.
All SSE deals include a free, easy-to-set-up router with no charge for delivery.
You can sign up for broadband and home phone from SSE whether you're an SSE energy customer or not, and its 17Mbps broadband service is available across the UK.
However, availability of SSE's 38Mbps and 76Mbps fibre broadband services are restricted in some areas of the UK, so if that's the service you'd like, it's worth checking whether you're eligible by heading to our broadband postcode checker site.
All SSE broadband customers qualify for free internet security software, as well as the chance to buy pre-release tickets for events with the SSE Reward scheme.
Free calls are included with all SSE home phone deals, but when the 'free period' applies depends on the package you've signed up for. Select packages also include half-price calls to mobiles and free calls to 20 international destinations.
