The Broadband Internet experience
Broadband speeds up your connection to the Internet enabling you do all your favourite things faster. Up to 400 times faster (16Mbps) than your current dial-up connection. From as little as £6.49 a month you could get fast internet and email access. This includes a free modem and free connection.
Broadband Internet speed
Broadband comes in many different speeds, that is the speed with which data travels up and down your phone line or cable network. The standard entry level is now 8Mb, 160X faster than a dial-up internet connection.
Although 8Mb is now the standard broadband speed, broadband is becoming cheaper and cheaper and broadband speeds of up to 24Mb are achievable down your phone line or up to 50Mb via cable. The faster your broadband, the more enjoyable the whole online experience; internet pages load faster, movies and music download faster, online gaming is awesome.
Most broadband packages have some sort of monthly usage allowance, varying from 2GB to 10GB to 30GB to unlimited. This figure indicates the amount of data you can transfer (download or upload) each month.
In order to simplify the comparison task we have split the way most people use the internet into 3 categories (Standard, Medium and High Usage), we use these categories in our compare broadband package service.
The following packages provide the best deal in each category:
