Broadband and TV

Depending on your broadband usage and viewing preferences you can make big savings by bundling your TV, phone and broadband together in one package.

Rather than having 3 separate companies providing you with these services the keen shopper can find a package that will not only save them money but will also simplify the payment of bills.

Click on the TV packages button and compare all the UK’s available TV, phone and broadband packages.

Fibre Optic

Fibre optic broadband provides the UK's fastest widely available broadband. It is also referred to as "superfast" broadband and is defined by the UK government as providing download speeds in excess of 24 Mbps.

Fibre optic broadband, for the most part, does not use copper wiring (copper wiring is used to connect from the cabinet to the house in FTTC fibre broadband technology) and as a consequence it enables the transmission of data at faster speeds.

Virgin Media is currently the most readily available fastest provider of fibre optic broadband with speeds up to 200 Mbps broadband but BT, Sky, Plusnet, TalkTalk, EE and others also provide fibre optic broadband with speeds varying between 38 Mbps to 76 Mbps.

Unlimited Broadband

Unlimited broadband is broadband that has no usage caps or download limits.

It is recommended for gamers, film streamers and large households as it allows the downloading and uploading of as much data as you want without having to worry about exceeding a limit.

You should be aware that some providers who advertise unlimited broadband may have traffic management in place that restricts your Internet speeds at peak times so as always it is a must that you read the fine print before signing up to a contract.

Buyers guide to Broadband

Broadband is defined as wide bandwidth data transmission and is achievable facilitating various technologies which dictate the speed of the data transmission. Broadband comes in many shapes and sizes. The slowest broadband commercially available in the UK utilises ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line). The fastest commercially available broadband in the UK is achievable using fibre optic cables and is commonly known as fibre broadband. Broadband comes on its own or it can be bundled with your phone, TV or mobile. Whether you are a first time user of broadband or looking to upgrade it pays to shop around as broadband prices and offers are constantly changing.

Many people become complacent about their broadband and naturally assume that their broadband provider will give them the best deal when it comes to renewing their contract. Unfortunately this is not the case and people who don’t shop around for a better broadband deal and just renew their contract find themselves with broadband that is overpriced and underperforming. In today’s world of commerce, loyalty to a brand is not rewarded and more often than not is seen as complicity and an opportunity to extend profit margins. The old adage caveat emptor (Let the buyer beware) is true to today as it has always been.

That’s the bad news, the good news is that by using the BroadbandExposed comparison engine you can not only easily and quickly search all the UK’s broadband providers but more importantly you can save yourself a sizeable amount of money.

Before you start comparing deals you should ask yourself a few simple but critical questions:

1. What is your budget?

2. How long do you want to be tied to a broadband contract?

3. What download allowance do you need?

4. What broadband speeds do you require?

5. Would a broadband bundle best suit your requirements?

6. Do you need a broadband and line rental bundle?

Let’s address these questions one at a time:

What is your budget?

This may seem an obvious first question but getting it wrong can have severe consequences. With broadband ranging from free to almost £100 a month it is easy to sign up to deal and find yourself either guilty of false economy because by spending too little you find that it doesn’t provide all your requirements and conversely you could find yourself widely overspending because you do not require all the services and features of the deal. What is more important though is to understand that if you sign up to a deal then there is a minimum contract length that you are tied to and if at a future date you find that you cannot afford to pay the monthly costs and you are still within the minimum contract length, then you will find yourself liable to the provider for substantial amounts of money.

How long do you want to be tied to a broadband contract?

This question follows on from the previous question in that we have seen the worst case scenario on defaulting payment whilst being tied to a contract. Broadband is available with contract lengths that range from 1 month to 18 months and there are pros and cons of both short and long contracts. Short contracts give you flexibility. Not being tied to a long contract means that you can swap and change contracts. The downside to short contracts is that usually they are more expensive than long contracts and do not usually come with bundles.

What download allowance do you need?

This question ties in with what you intend to do on the internet. Are you a heavy or light internet user? Broadband is available with data allowances which range from 2GB to Unlimited. If you just use the internet for light browsing and reading emails then a small data allowance would be fine. If on the other hand you download a lot, watch streaming media or have other family members using the same connection then you should go for an unlimited download allowance. Remember if you go over your download allowance you will end up paying extra charges for exceeding your allowance.

What broadband speeds do you require?

Is speed an issue for you? Broadband is available with speeds that range from 17Mbps to superfast fibre broadband with speeds up to 200Mbps. If you download a lot of files, like to view streaming videos or have other family members who will be simultaneously using the same broadband connection then you should go for the fastest broadband speed you can afford. If you have other family members who will be simultaneously using the same broadband connection then a high broadband speed will mean that the bandwidth can be shared amongst those simultaneously online which will result in them all having a relatively fast broadband connection. Superfast fibre optic broadband has been going down in price but it is still more expensive than regular 17Mbps ADSL and unfortunately although superfast fibre optic broadband coverage is constantly expanding it is not available to all areas in the UK. To find out if you can get superfast fibre optic broadband use our Broadband Postcode Checker. Enter your postcode and we will show the types of deals and speeds that are available to you in your location.

Another issue to bear in mind when addressing the issue of broadband speed is that advertised speeds are just that "advertised". Unfortunately as the law stands in the UK a provider only needs 10% of customers to get a certain speed before it can advertise the speed as being attainable.

While providers may tell you their service is up to 17Mbps on ADSL or 38Mbps, 76Mbps, 200Mbps etc on superfast fibre optic broadband you may find that you won't get near that speed. The actual speed that is achievable at your premise depends on multiple factors including how close you are to the exchange and how well-equipped that exchange is, if you are connected to a 17Mbps ADSL line or how close you are to a cabinet, if you are connected to FTTC superfast fibre optic broadband . The farther you are away from the exchange in the case of 17Mbps ADSL or the cabinet, if you are connected to FTTC superfast fibre optic broadband, the slower the speed.

Fibre broadband speeds also vary depending on the way it is implemented. Generally in the UK there are three versions of fibre broadband, Fibre-to-the-Cabinet (FTTC), Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) and Fibre to the Node. FTTC involves running fibre optic cables from the telephone exchange to street cabinets which then connect using a standard copper phone line to the home or business.

FTTC is available through BT, Sky, TalkTalk, Plusnet, EE and can achieve broadband speeds up to 76Mbps dependant on the distance from the cabinet to the home.

FTTP differs from FTTC in that it provides an end to end fibre optic connection from the exchange to the building. FTTP is faster than FTTC as there is no copper wiring involved. Broadband speeds of 330Mbps can be attained with FTTP but unfortunately it is currently not widely available and tends to be offered by specialised providers.

Fibre to the Node involves running fibre to a street-side cabinet and then a connection is made to the house using a coaxial cable. This coaxial cable offers more resilience to interference than a standard copper phone line so it is possible to attain faster broadband speeds over this. Currently only Virgin Media use Fibre to the Node and it offers broadband speeds ranging from up to 50Mbps to up to 200Mbps.

Would a broadband bundle best suit your requirements?

Broadband comes in all shapes and sizes and usually it is overall more cost effective to bundle your broadband with other services. You can bundle your broadband with your phone or you can bundle it with your phone and TV. To help you determine which type of deal is best suited to your requirements you can use the BroadbandExposed comparison engine to compare all the different types of broadband deals together or you can compare them separately by different packages.

Do you need a broadband and line rental bundle?

Recent surveys have found that many people today never use their landline opting instead to make calls with their mobile. This means that millions of people in the UK feel obliged to retain a line rental because they need broadband connectivity. If you do not require a landline then Virgin offer superfast broadband without line rental. Although Virgin’s broadband network is extensive and growing daily, unfortunately not everyone in the UK is covered so you will have to check that your property is within their broadband network coverage. You can check if you can get Virgin broadband by entering your postcode into our Broadband Postcode Checking Tool.

Why use BroadbandExposed?

At BroadbandExposed we not only provide you with all the latest broadband deals but unlike other broadband comparison sites we also provide you with a comprehensive breakdown of all the costs involved in signing up to a contract, from the phone rates that are applicable to the deal, down to the post and packaging costs (if applicable) that the provider may charge to send you a router. Remember unfortunately it is common practice for businesses in this country to hide the true cost of their products behind headline costs and the headline cost is nearly always not the price that you will end up paying, The broadband market is no different so our advice is to examine all the costs involved before committing yourself to a contract.

Unlike other comparison sites BroadbandExposed does not have a hidden agenda. You may have read in the news about how some of the largest comparison sites in the UK are prominently listing products that they want to sell and do not present the customer with deals that are substantially cheaper because they are more concerned about selling products that give them a greater kickback. At BroadbandExposed it is not our intention to mislead customers. We endeavour to list all broadband deals and strive to maintain the maxim “What you see is what you get”. By doing this it is our hope that customers find it is easier and cheaper to find the broadband deal that best fits their requirements and their pocket.
