Can I get cheap broadband deals?

Yes, broadband doesn’t have to be expensive. If you shop around, you can find plenty of cheap broadband deals to suit your needs.

What cheap broadband do I need?

Each of the major internet providers in the UK have cheap broadband deals available. You’ll find the cheapest options for internet are ADSL, but you’ll get slower speeds and a weaker connection.

That might be OK if you live on your own and just use the internet for browsing and checking emails.

But if you’re in a shared home with more occupants, or if you stream a lot or work from home, you’ll likely need a faster, fibre broadband. The good news is that most entry level fibre deals, which complete the journey to the home from a street cabinet using older, copper infrastructure, are now as affordable as basic ADSL plans, giving you a faster connection for the same price.

Which providers offer affordable broadband plans?

TalkTalk

Specialises in value broadband, phone and TV packages and promises no mid-contract price rises.

Vodafone

Offers great-value fast broadband packages, which users are able to access exclusive prices on if combined with certain mobile plans.

Plusnet

Highly rated customer service and great value broadband and phone packages with a few nice extras, such as TNT Sports.

Shell Energy

With three simple packages, Shell Energy Broadband offers broadband at very competitive prices. They’re a great option for customers looking for the best value broadband and energy service.

NOW Broadband

NOW Broadband offers simple, affordable broadband, with the option to bundle up with a TV Membership to stream shows from the app too.

Hyperoptic

If you want affordable, full fibre broadband on a short term, one month rolling deal, with no contract, then Hyperoptic’s deals are a great option.

What are the pros and cons of cheap deals?

There are benefits and disadvantages to cheap broadband deals, for example:

Pros

  • Cheap broadband deals give you access to the internet at affordable prices
  • Great option for those who live alone, or are light internet users
  • Can save money with broadband bundles

Cons

  • Can often mean slower speeds and weaker connection
  • Not ideal for heavy internet users

Can I trust a cheap broadband provider?

Yes. Cheap providers are often allied with major providers, such as NOW, which is part of Sky. And most use the Openreach network, the same set of lines used by top names like BT.

They also rate highly for customer service, as they’re able to give a more personal touch which can sometimes be missing from the largest players in the broadband space.

How to save money on your broadband

The best way to save money on your existing broadband is to search for a new deal. There are always new, affordable options for those looking to keep costs down.

It pays to keep an eye on add ons such as TV deals and landlines that you don’t use. There are a host of broadband only plans these days that do not require you to pay for calls or take out a TV bundle.

If you receive benefits, you may be entitled to low income broadband or social tariffs.

Frequently asked questions

How do I find a cheap broadband deal?

The best and fastest way to find really cheap broadband is to use our comparison tables. Just filter by ‘lowest price’ and we’ll show you the cheapest broadband deals on offer right now.

Is it cheaper to install Wi-Fi without a landline?

A lot of providers now offer broadband only deals, without the need for a phone package. However, if you take out an ADSL or fibre-to-the-cabinet plan, you’ll still need a landline in order to make a connection.

If you have full fibre, also known as fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP), where you live, the initial cost of having broadband without a landline installed will be more expensive than opting for an alternative. The trade off is speeds ranging from 150Mbps to 1Gbps.

What is the cheapest Wi-Fi in the UK?

That depends entirely on when you look.

Prices in the broadband market change rapidly, so it’s best to keep comparing deals to see which is the most affordable. Make a note of when your deal expires and, when it does, search for a plan that comes in less than what you’re paying right now.
