What types of broadband are there?

Most UK homes either have ADSL (‘standard broadband’ to you and me) or fibre optic broadband.

ADSL home broadband

ADSL

With this type of broadband, you usually get speeds of up to 16Mbp, depending on how far you live away from the exchange. You’ll find you’ll have a slower connection with this kind of broadband, as things like emails and websites take longer to load. It can also be more of a hassle using streaming sites.

Fibre optic broadband

Fibre optic

Fibre optic gives you faster broadband, but usually at a higher price. Depending on which provider you go with, you can get connection speeds as fast as 152Mbs. This makes browsing the web, downloading content and streaming music and videos a lot quicker.

    Do I need to get line rental with my broadband package?

    The majority of broadband suppliers combine broadband and line rental in one bundle. Many people, especially younger people, no longer use a home phone. There are a few suppliers who offer broadband without a phone line. You may be able to save money if you have no use for line rental.

    What broadband bundle should I get?

    Broadband bundles are where suppliers combine internet, TV and phone into one package. Opting for a bundle can be a cost-effective and convenient way to get three services in one.

    If you think you would benefit from having broadband, phone and a digital TV package, then a bundle can be for you. Buying it all from the same provider is usually cheaper than buying separately.

    But you should think carefully about what you need. A bundle can seem like a great broadband deal, but consider how likely you are to use your line rental. Also, think about what kind of entertainment you want. If you’re a big TV-watcher, then great, a bundle could be the perfect option for you. Don’t watch a lot of TV? Then it could be cheaper for you to just get internet.

    FAQs

    Which broadband speed do I need?

    This depends on a few different things. Specifically, where you live, how many people will be using your broadband, and what you want to use your broadband for. Take a look at the different broadband speeds you can go for.


    Standard broadband speeds

    If you mostly use your internet access for browsing the web, uploading photos to Instagram, and you rarely stream or download content, then a standard broadband speed could be the cheap option for you. These usually come at speeds from 5-16Mbs.

    Bear in mind though, that more and more people are converting to streaming sites for entertainment, and a standard broadband speed could make it a struggle if you want to start watching Netflix or listening to Spotify.


    Superfast broadband speeds

    Superfast broadband usually comes at 38Mbs to 76Mbs. If you regularly use streaming sites like Netflix, BBC iPlayer and Amazon Prime Video, then this kind of speed is likely for you. It’ll also be able to withstand downloading and uploading large files and Skype.

    Superfast is recommended if you think that several people will be using the internet at one time, especially if more than one person will be streaming material.


    Ultrafast broadband

    Ultrafast broadband is the big dog when it comes to broadband speeds. Over Mbps, this kind of broadband isn’t available in all parts of the country and isn’t delivered by all providers. Naturally, it costs more than standard and superfast broadband.

    This could be the broadband for you if you’re a big gamer, or you have quite a few people gaming at the same time.

    Do you need ultrafast broadband? Probably not. But if you’re planning to use your broadband to the absolute max, then it could be for you.

    Should I get unlimited broadband or broadband with usage limits?

    That depends on how many of you are using the broadband and for what. If there are several of you (more than two, let’s say) and you use the internet for social media, streaming entertainment or gaming, then having an unlimited broadband package is probably your best bet. 

    This way, you’ll be safe in the mindset that you can browse the internet to your heart’s content and won’t use up your data.

    If there’s only you, or you and one other person in the house, then having a broadband package with usage limits could be a cheaper option. This is the right idea if you don’t use much data. So if you use your internet mainly for browsing the web, online shopping or email. 

    How do I check my broadband speed?

    Check the speed of your broadband is super easy. Simply do a web search of ‘broadband speed test’. You’ll immediately be presented with a speed-test too. All you have to do is run the speed test. In just a few seconds you’ll see your download and upload speeds. 

    It’ll also tell you in simpler terms how fast your broadband speed is and what it is capable of, such as streaming videos, video-conferencing or gaming.
