Everything you need to know about SSE

SSE logo

Thinking about taking SSE broadband? Here’s what’s on offer and what you need to know.

SSE bills itself as UK’s broadest base energy company and came into being in 1998 when Scottish Hydro and Southern Electric merged to become Scottish and Southern Energy.

Although perhaps best known as an energy supplier, SSE started selling home phone services in 2003 and broadband in 2008.

As an added perk, SSE customers get the chance to snatch up tickets for music and sporting events at the SSE Hydro, The SSE arena and Wembley up to 48 hours before general release. Use our postcode checker to see if SSE Broadband is available in your area.
