Broadband Deals with No Upfront Cost

Find the latest deals from leading UK providers for May 2024. Details on broadband services for new customers with no upfront payments or set-up costs.

Broadband Deals With Free Installation

Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) are always looking for new ways to attract more customers in the increasingly competitive broadband sector. Scrapping upfront costs and set-up fees is just one of their latest incentives. This is obviously proving popular with consumers, as set-up costs can be expensive, especially for Fibre broadband services. Most of these kind of deals are limited time offers. So once the deal expires, installation prices revert back to standard pricing.

What happens if I need a new phone line?

Apart from Virgin Media, most providers require you to have an active landline in order to supply your broadband service. If you have an inactive line or need a new one installed, then the provider may charge you for activation or a ‘new line provision’. If this does apply to you, your new provider will add this cost to your basket, which can be as much as £60.00. Don’t worry, you will be able to view any cost of this kind before you complete your order.

Router delivery fee

Most ISP’s charge a router delivery fee. This is around the £7-£10.00 mark. However, with the current top deals we have outlined above – this charge is also waived.

Some deals do charge a set-up fee

If the provider does charge an upfront payment for installation or activation, then this can be found in the ‘set-up cost’ in our comparison results. This cost also includes the router delivery fee if applicable.


At a time when our utility bills seem to keep spiraling upwards, it’s quiet refreshing to see that some broadband providers are offering services with no upfront costs. You may also find that some providers promise not to increase your monthly subscription while you are in your contract. Remember, if your provider does increase your monthly bills while you are under contract, you have the right to cancel and switch to another provider.
