Broadband OffersMost of us are content to lock ourselves into a long-term contract with a big name internet provider and sit on it until we move to a new house (or, heaven forbid, start experiencing interruption to our service). This is all well and good, except you could be missing out on some excellent seasonal deals - that's why it's always important to shop around and see what you can find. To help get you started, here are the best broadband offers available at the moment.
TalkTalk Fast Broadband
There are a few things you need to know about TalkTalk before we get started. First, we would be remiss not to mention that their customer service record isn't the best (although things do seem to be improving). It's also imperative that you read the small print because they often burden you with hefty cancellation fees in the event you need to switch providers. But, let's give them their due: their Faster Broadband package is a nice and affordable offer. You have to sign up for eighteen months to reap the full rewards but £23.50 per month isn't a bad price for a modest 38MB. If that's not fast enough for you, there's also the option to upgrade to the SuperFast Fibre package for £2.5 more with 67Mb/s average download speed.
Sky has a great deal for those looking for a guaranteed speed internet for streaming, gaming and downloading for just £27 per month for 18 month contract. Nowadays working from home has become more common and the reliable connection is a must have for the video calls and conferences. For the price of just £5 more per month they can offer a guaranteed superfast speed broadband with wifi in every room. They make every day checks and if there are any problems with the connection and speed they will send engineers team to fix the problem for no extra cost.
Virgin Media SuperFibre
Users have praised this deal as an excellent package for "small homes", which should be a red flag for those who have a host of wireless devices in need of online connection (any more than four and you should look elsewhere). Compared to some others, it's a bit more powerful piece of kit, but it's pretty affordable at just £29 (plus £35 set up fee) per month for 18 month contract. You can also benefit from their bundle deals and save on phone and TV package prices.
BT probably boast the most powerful and reliable hardware for broadband connections, and although this comes with some start-up fees (around £19.99 in most cases), you will be getting smooth internet, along with unlimited usage and plenty of perks including expansive virus protection. This package will set you back a premium rate of £34 a month, and the contract runs over 2 years, but it's not a bad deal when you consider that you get unlimited fiber broadband with guaranteed signal in every room.
Plusnet unlimited broadband
Let's say you're a student or a recent graduate who's looking for some cheap and short-term broadband to help you stay in touch with friends and do a bit of web-browsing every now and then. In that case, you could probably do worse than step into the unknown with Plusnet. For your 18 month contract they'll only charge you £19 per month, and the line rental is included. It's affordable, and because Plusnet are trying to establish their customer base they will likely be on hand with attentive service if you run into any difficulties. Be warned though: download speed isn't always the best.
