These days, broadband is almost as essential as water and electricity, and just as with these other utilities, you can make significant savings by finding a cheaper provider.
But broadband providers aren’t all the same. When making a broadband comparison you need to look at more than the price. The speed you can get will be determined by where you live but it can still vary between service providers.
There are other things to consider too; how much data you are allowed to download each month, for example. Also think about how you use the internet, if you’re just checking emails and browsing a few websites it may not be worth paying more for a fibre connection. On the other hand, if you are a gamer or you stream movies and TV fibre is worthwhile.
You also need to look at the package on offer, are there extras such as a TV service or free phone calls? What’s the length of the contract? Is there a connection charge? Will the introductory price go up after a certain period?
While you might be tempted to stick with the big providers such as BT or Sky, it’s worth looking at alternatives as lesser-known companies can often have attractive deals.
