A Guide to Finding the Cheapest Broadband Deals

With so many broadband deals on offer, and an increase in consumer awareness about their requirements for broadband, it makes sense now to opt for the cheapest comparable broadband deal available.

Cheap broadband deals are now readily available as the providers compete to offer the cheapest broadband deals available on the market. Many providers will even offer free broadband as part of a bundle of services. Use a free broadband comparison tool to help find the cheapest deal that is suitable for you.

To make the offers more appealing many companies are offing consumers free rewards from signing up. This ranges from a free period of service, to vouchers, to tablets. Shop around and find the deal best suited to you.

With some packages, you don’t have to pay anything for broadband for upto 12 months. Note that there are still line rental charges that will be due.

Remember to forecast ahead as once the free period runs out you will need to pay the increased price.

Taking out cheap broadband deal is a really good way to ensure you have access online while you figure out what your broadband needs are. Once you have a deal with a provider you can upgrade to suit your needs at a later date. Note that should you want to downgrade your broadband package you will most likely have to wait until the end of the contract. A good reason to take the cheapest deal and increase as you need.

What types of broadband are on offer when looking for cheapest broadband deals?

What broadband is available to you is dependent on where in the country you live and what providers operate in that region. How you use the internet will determine what deal you should buy.

ADSL broadband connection:

ADSL works over the same cable line that is used to provide telephone service. ADSL will not disrupt your telephone calls if both are used at the same time.

There is approximately 99% coverage available across the UK

Fibre optic broadband:

Arguably the most popular option as the availability increases, however it is not available everywhere. Fibre optic broadband is faster than other types of broadband and is required for ‘heavy users’. Anyone using streaming services such as Netflix or Amazon Prime should consider fibre optic broadband when choosing their provider.

Cable broadband:

Cable broadband uses the same cables as a cable TV packages, offering a similar speed to a DSL connection and are useful for those living in areas where the landline phone wiring is badly done or inaccessible.

Mobile broadband (3G or 4G):

Nowadays many people use their mobiles inbuilt 3g or 4g to access the internet. Some phone users can even use their phones as personal hotspots to connect other devices to the internet. Other types of 3g and 4g connection are through the use of dongles. These can be very handy if travelling or as a backup option.
