Below are the best offers from BT in 2018. Some include fibre optic broadband, which offers faster speeds when it comes to broadband services.
BT Infinity Fibre Unlimited Broadband & Calls
Fibre optic broadband is one of the more popular options for broadband users in the UK. Offering a faster speed, fibre optics can be pricey for the installation, but worth it over time. With this deal, you can expect up to 52mb in speed, unlimited downloads and just a £9.99 setup. Monthly repayments for this will be £31.99 for 18 months.
BT Unlimited Broadband & Calls
For both a broadband and calls deal, consider the BT Unlimited Broadband and Call deal. For £23.99 a month for 18 months, you can expect speeds of up to 17mb.
BT Infinity Fibre Unlimited Broadband, Calls & Starter + BT Sport Package
As one of the more expensive packages on the list, this could be a great option if you’re a sports fan. With BT Sports, calls and broadband, you may find that this is the best option for you. Speeds can reach up to 52mb, and cost per month is £35.49. The downfall to this deal is the £59.99 setup fee that comes with this deal.
TalkTalk Fixed Price Unlimited Fast Broadband
For speeds up to 17mb, unlimited downloads and at £18.95 a month, this deal from Talk Talk is one of the cheapest you will find in this guide. However, this speed for broadband could be considered slow by some. If you use the internet for minimal use (social media etc) then this would be perfect for you. However, if you play online, consider one of the higher broadband options.
TalkTalk TV, Fixed Price Unlimited Fast Broadband & TV Select
This deal is the same as the deal above. However, with this option, you also have the option to add on the TV Select option from Talk Talk. This deal comes in at £25.95 a month.
Sky have a wide range of customisable broadband and tv options for you to choose from on their website. Whether you’re a cinema or sports fan, choose the package that suits you best and take it from there. If you would like to know more about the customisable options from Sky – call their customer service team for more information.
If you’re after a more general broadband package from Sky, their Sky Broadband Unlimited Service is £20 a month, £20 set up and you will receive 17mb and unlimited downloads. However, we suggest you check out the options available to you with Sky before committing. If you’re having an issue accessing your broadband, see our guide on Sky Broadband Not Working.
Plusnet Unlimited Broadband & Phone Line
This is the basic package with Plusnet, and is one of the cheaper broadband deals out there in the UK today. The package comes in at 17mb for 12 months at £19.99.
Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Broadband Extra
In our opinion, we have saved the best for last. This deal from Plusnet will set you back £15 for setup and only £29.99 a month for 12 months. Included in this deal is up to 76mb speed and unlimited downloads.
Switching your Broadband
Although you may be in a contract with a current provider, calling their customer team will provide some great results. Companies will always want to keep their current customers on their plan, as they know that they can provide a steady payment each month. For being loyal, many providers will lower the price of a plan, or give you a unique deal, in order for you to stay with them for another year. Simply call up your provider, mention that you would like to switch your current deal, and ask for options for the coming year – you will find that many will offer you below the asking price of other companies.
