Annual savings show what you could save in the first 12 months. Your savings are the difference between the annual cost you entered for your current deal and the deal you could switch to. The annual savings amount does not include:
*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.
Unlimited broadband offers heavy broadband users total flexibility. If you're sick of being restricted by your download limit every month, unlimited broadband deals are the way to go.
Sales of broadband-enabled gadgets — such as PlayStations, Xboxes, Nintendo Wii U's as well as laptops, iPods, smartphones and iPads — have skyrocketed over the last five years.
As these devices are increasingly being used to connect to the internet over home broadband connections, many households are hitting and exceeding their download limits on a monthly basis. If you're among them, an unlimited broadband deal could be just the ticket.
Unlimited broadband suits:
As you may have already suspected, unlimited broadband isn't always completely unlimited. If you’re on an ADSL line, you share your internet connection with the surrounding properties. Couple that with the fact that there is a limit to the amount of information that ADSL lines can transmit, and it leaves broadband providers with little alternative but to put some sort of restriction in place on heavy downloaders.
For this reason, ISPs try to make sure that 'super users' don't unfairly slow down the connection for others by subjecting users to fair usage policies.
Fair usage policies are your ISP's way of trying to manage online traffic fairly and work by limiting the speed of your connection during peak times. For more information on FUPs, read our fair usage policy guide.
