Broadband and TV

Many broadband providers also offer a digital TV service, with Sky and Virgin Media the two most recognisable. But as our broadband becomes quicker and more reliable, many other providers are able to offer a digital TV service that's delivered via a broadband connection, including the popular on demand services.

The available channels and services do vary from provider to provider and package to package, so it's worth checking the detail on your chosen package to see what's on offer. Check the compare button on our results table for up to five different packages to see what channels are on offer, side-by-side.

Fibre Optic

Often referred to as "superfast broadband", fibre optic offers most UK households the fastest available broadband speeds.

Instead of using the copper telephone network, which is how most ADSL broadband is delivered, superfast is transmitted through fibre optic cables. The signal doesn't degrade using fibre optic cables, which means speeds are much faster. Whereas ADSL can offers speeds of up to 16 Mbps (Megabits per second), we're looking at a minimum of 38 Mbps with fibre.

Virgin Media offers the fastest fibre speeds, in excess of 100 Mbps in some cases and is the widest available provider in the UK at the moment. But Sky, Plusnet, Primus, EE and BT as well as some other providers also offer the service.

Unlimited Broadband

Unlimited means that the broadband you receive at home will have no caps on usage or downloads.

This means that whenever you want to use the internet, for downloading, streaming or just general browsing, you can do so without ever worrying about incurring extra charges.

Some providers have been known to implement traffic management on their networks, meaning that the speed of a user's broadband is controlled during peak times and this could be the case even with unlimited broadband. It's worth checking with your provider for more information on traffic management.

Anytime Calls

If you want to have the cost of local and national landline calls included in your broadband package, click this button. Anytime covers your local and national calls during the daytime, evening and at weekends, which means you won't pay extra on your monthly bill for making calls. However some providers will charge for 0870 and 0845 calls, and international calls will also be charged, so do check the details of the package to see what's included.

How to understand your usage

Your broadband usage, measured in megabytes (MB) and gigabytes (GB), can be a puzzling subject to fully understand. It's not easy to be truly accurate with how much broadband you're consuming on a monthly basis.

That's why we've cut through the technical jargon by creating three different types of broadband user. Simply match your activities to one of the user types below:

Light users A single user, or perhaps there's two of you, who like to browse the internet, send emails and maybe download a few songs during the evenings and at weekends. Browsing, email, iTunes
Look for

Packages with 2GB of use or more

Medium users Perhaps you're a small family, or a couple who like to watch iPlayer or catch-up TV a few times a week, on top of the usual website browsing, email sending and occasional Skype calls. iPlayer, Skype
Look for

Packages with 20GB or more

Heavy users You're either a large family or shared household. You like to stream TV or Netflix, perhaps play some online video games and generally enjoy living in a connected world. Steaming TV or Movies, gaming
Look for

Packages with unlimited usage

How to understand the different broadband speeds

There are three different types of broadband speeds that are available to you when you take out a new deal. These are ADSL, fibre and superfast fibre.

ADSL

ADSL is broadband that's delivered into your house via a telephone line and used by the majority of households in Britain.

These deals offer speeds of up to 16 megabits per second (Mb). ADSL broadband is generally fast enough for you to stream television without too much buffering or pausing and certainly fast enough for day-to-day internet browsing and emailing.

Fibre

Using fibre optic cables to transfer data, you can achieve speeds of up to 38Mb with a fibre broadband connection.

You will happily watch live TV and play online video games with a fibre broadband connection offering minimal delays or lags.

Superfast fibre

Superfast refers to fibre optic broadband connections with speeds over 38Mb.

You may opt for a superfast fibre broadband connection if you require large downloads delivered to you quickly, or were a regular player of online video games that needed a faster than average connection in order to play seamlessly.

Vodafone broadband

Responsible for making the UK's first mobile phone call in January 1985, Vodafone has been at the forefront of communication technology since its formation and has now branched into the broadband sector.

Vodafone offers both home broadband and mobile broadband. Vodafone home broadband is available exclusively to Vodafone pay monthly customers. It works in the same way as a traditional broadband package with super-fast speeds and unlimited* downloads. The mobile broadband packages utilise a USB modem or modem stick that is plugged into a laptop to connect you to the web almost anywhere.

Who is Vodafone broadband ideal for?

Existing Vodafone subscribers will be drawn towards the Vodafone home broadband range as a chance to tie-in their communication services with one reliable and affordable provider. Mobile broadband is popular among business workers who need to access the internet on the move, and anyone who wants to avoid line rental charges such as those renting properties and students.

What do you need to get Vodafone broadband?

Home broadband customers require:

  • A Vodafone pay monthly contract.
  • Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP or Vista.
  • A 10/100 Ethernet LAN port.
  • Internet Explorer 5.0/Netscape 4.7 or higher.
  • For use with a wireless router, you will need one of the following: Intel Centrino internal wireless technology, a USB 1.1 or 2.0 port for USB wireless adapter, a type II cardbus slot for PCMCIA wireless adapters, a free PCI slot for PCI wireless adapters.
  • Apple Mac customers need: MAC OS 9 or X; a 10/100 Ethernet port; plus either Apple AirPort or an Apple Mac wireless adapter.

Mobile broadband customers require:

  • A USB Modem stick or USB modem (available from Vodafone).
  • Windows XP or Vista.
  • A standard USB interface.
  • At least 100Mb of free disk space and 128MB RAM.
  • Apple Mac customers need OS X Panther 10.3.9 or higher; a standard USB interface and at least 50Mb free disk space and 128Mb of RAM.

What else does Vodafone broadband have to offer?

Vodafone home broadband comes with unlimited anytime calls to UK landlines beginning with 01 and 02 (as long as you hang up and redial after 60 minutes). You can also enjoy reduced cost calls to UK mobiles, virus protection and a 30 day money back guarantee.
