Comparing and buying broadband deals

About our comparison results

We are excited to announce that we have relaunched our comparison results. Research shows that consumers are a little tired of looking through endless comparison tables and much prefer a ‘best of the bunch’ approach. So here at iCompareBroadband.co.uk we have scrapped our older tables and now concentrate on reviewing today’s best deals to offer you money-saving-tips which save you the leg work. Just as before, you can then personalise your new service and complete your order securely online direct with your chosen provider.

Availability – Postcode Checker?

The most accurate way to find out availability of a particular service, is to enter your postcode direct with a provider. That way you do not need to disclose your information anywhere else. There are many instances were people submit their details with comparison sites, find a service they are interested in – only to be told by the provider that the service is not available for installation at their premises. To get more accurate results and save time, simply find a deal and go through to check availability with that particular provider.

Broadband Comparison – what to look for?

If you live in a busy household then the faster the better – especially if you have a hungry mix of large downloads, online gaming and streaming video etc. Similarly, do you really need to pay for super-fast broadband if you are a casual user living alone? How long is the stated contract? Is this acceptable when taking into consideration any promotional offers? How much do you pay upfront, if anything? Upfront costs can also be off-set against promo rates and vouchers if available. It is worth noting that most providers now charge a ‘router delivery charge’, even if they are running a free set-up promotion. This delivery cost is included in the “set-up cost” column of our comparison tables.

Phone line cost now included

Unless otherwise stated, the cost of line rental is now included in broadband monthly subscription costs. This development came as OFCOM (the governing body which regulates the telecoms industry), ruled that phone line fee should be included to save confusion about overall costs.

Broadband with no phone line

Virgin Media are currently one of the only widely available UK providers to offer home broadband without the need of a phone line. This is because Virgin Media relies solely on its own cable network, bypassing the need to for a landline to bring broadband to your door. However, if you take one of their call packages a Virgin phone line is required. Update: There are now a growing number of smaller cable network providers looking to emulate Virgin’s success. So look out for some of the new ‘Ultrafast’ and ‘Gigafast’ services, some of which are also supplied via a cable to your home with no need for a traditional fixed landline.

What are the differences between standard broadband and Fibre?

Traditional broadband (or ‘standard broadband’ as we refer to it), is supplied via a fixed telephone line (known as ADSL broadband). Although still suitable for causal use, there are limitations regarding speed. The fastest speeds available in the UK via ADSL is 17Mbps. This compares to 300Mbps via fibre optic cable broadband. Virgin Media are currently the only provider in the UK that run cable-to-household fibre broadband. All other UK networks run fibre broadband to your nearest telephone exchange. Then broadband services are continued down traditional fixed lines. This is why Virgin Media consistently run the fasted broadband in the UK.

Do I need to contact my existing provider?

If you decide that you wish to change your Broadband provider, then you need to refer to your contract with them. There is normally a 30 day termination notice required – even if you are out of contract. If you are out of contract with your old provider, then there should be no penalty for switching your Broadband service.

Broadband MAC code

In 2015 there was a change by OFCOM (the government regulating body that oversees the telecommunications industry) regarding MAC codes. As a customer you no longer need to obtain this, the responsibility is new with your new provider as part of the service switch to them.

To Conclude

The broadband sector has become increasingly competitive, with UK providers scrambling for your custom. This results in some really attractive deals, especially if you are a new customer switching providers. Broadband packages which include TV and calls offer the best value-for-money services. Standalone broadband is now popular with lots of deals available, however, with the exception of Virgin Media’s broadband only products – a phone line is required and this cost is now included in the monthly subscriptions. A few providers now offer 30 day rolling contracts. While this option could be ideal for certain people (i.e. students or people regularly on the move), both the upfront cost and monthly subscription may be higher than signing up for a longer period.

Weigh up your requirements and consider exactly what you need before signing up.
