Who are the biggest broadband providers in the UK?

Sky

Sky offers a full range of fibre broadband deals, from decent basic speeds right up to ultrafast packages.

What makes it stand out, though, is its TV bundles, letting you get excellent home internet and access to the best in sports and entertainment in one package.

Virgin Media

Virgin Media doesn’t use the Openreach network, meaning even its most basic packages require a connection right to your door.

But while it’s not as readily available as its rivals, it has long offered the best speeds in the business, as well as excellent TV bundles.

NOW Broadband

NOW Broadband offers highly affordable broadband at a great range of speeds.

It’s set apart by the fact you can pair it with Now TV passes, meaning you can access Sky’s Sports or Cinema channels without needing a monthly TV contract or satellite dish.

TalkTalk

TalkTalk pairs a wide range of broadband deals with price points that won’t break the bank.

That means affordable fibre broadband and the chance to get a new 4K TV box too if you take out a TV package.

Plusnet

Plusnet serves up cheap and fast fibre broadband alongside award winning customer service. If you want the basics done well, it’s hard to look further.

Vodafone

Vodafone’s home broadband packages have the advantage of coming at speeds ranging from the basic to lightning fast and all at prices that are highly competitive.

EE

EE broadband is available at speeds from 36Mbps right up to 900Mbps and comes with excellent, money off perks for those who use EE’s award winning mobile network.

BT

BT broadband isn’t the cheapest. But you get what you pay for, with a rock solid network, access to millions of WiFi hotspots and speeds to suit all budgets.

Other providers

As well as the major names, we also offer deals with a host of smaller providers. These include:

G.Network

London-focused G.Network delivers full fibre across the capital at highly impressive prices and with perks that make it extremely enticing.

Onestream

Entry level fibre broadband speeds at cheap prices make Onestream an upstart to look out for if you’re on a budget.

Gigaclear

Aimed at serving rural communities in the south of England, Gigaclear offers super fast speeds and an excellent router. If you live in the countryside, it could be for you.

Trooli

Another rural provider in South East England, Trooli delivers full fibre in areas that have previously struggled to get online.

Shell Energy

As well as energy, Shell Energy offers broadband as well, and at speeds to suit every kind of user and budget.

Zen Internet

Its background in business broadband has made Zen Internet the provider of choice for those who want reliable fast connections with customer service that regularly tops the charts.

John Lewis

For cheap, no-frills broadband, high street giant John Lewis is a good bet.

Fibre optic providers

Nearly all providers in the UK now offer fibre broadband . Here’s what you can expect from each.

BT

Speeds ranging from a basic 36Mbps using old copper wiring for the final leg into your home, right through to 900Mbps super fast broadband.

Prices aren’t the lowest, but the network is one of the UK’s best.

Virgin

Virgin’s fibre network is one of the UK’s most established, as well as its fastest, with its Gig1 broadband topping out at over 1Gbps. Expensive, but worth it.

TalkTalk

Like BT, TalkTalk offers entry level fibre from 36Mbps all the way to 900Mbps with its FTTP powered packages.

Cheap deals, offset by a history of iffy customer service.

Sky

Sky sits alongside BT and TalkTalk in the speed stakes, with speeds starting at 36Mbps and topping out at 900Mbps in some areas. Prices are in line with BT.

EE

Like its parent company BT, EE has speeds from 36Mbps all the way up to 900Mbps in areas where FTTP networks have been installed.

Prices are great and you get money off if you’re an EE mobile customer.

Vodafone

Get Vodafone broadband and you can get speeds from 36Mbps to 900Mbps all with its excellent router thrown in. Affordable, too.

Onestream

Onestream serves up basic fibre rather than FTTP, with 55Mbps and 80Mbps packages. It’s not too expensive , but customer service isn’t great.

Plusnet

Although one of the UK’s most affordable providers, Plusnet doesn’t skimp on speed, with 900Mbps available in some areas.

G.Network

Full fibre available across London in speeds ranging from 300Mbps to 900Mbps and at great prices too.

Gigaclear

A rural provider offering FTTP broadband in select areas in southern England, Gigaclear is great if you don’t live in a town or city.

Trooli

Another rural provider offering speeds up to 900Mbps, Trooli is able to bring speeds you’d expect in city centres rather than the out in the sticks.

How do I know which broadband provider is best for me?

With so many deals available and networks offering ever better full fibre, picking a provider can be tricky. That’s what we’re here for.

Read our some of our own reviews and we’ll give you the lowdown on what to expect.

Whether you want BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Now, Virgin, Plusnet, EE or another provider altogether, we’ve got you covered.

How are internet service providers regulated?

Ofcom regulates all broadband providers, ensuring they offer the service that they advertise and checking on their customer service to give you a clear idea of how they’re performing.

Its annual report on the state of broadband is worth checking out when you’re ready to switch suppliers.
