How to Make Sure You Get the Right Broadband Package

By David Martin Subscribe to RSS | January 30th 2012 | Views:

With a host of companies now offering a range of broadband services, choosing the right one for you can seem like a daunting task. Thankfully there are online tools that can make browsing and comparing broadband packages a less time consuming activity. If you find the acronyms and jargon used in broadband advertising confusing, and even if you don't; it is well worth utilising a comparison site to find the cheapest and most reliable broadband package available in your local area.

Sites that feature these price comparison tools often contain sections devoted to explaining jargon and detailing what different price plans entail. If you do not consider yourself to be computer literate, it is highly recommended that you pay one of these sites a visit to read through the guides and FAQs on offer to bring yourself up to speed and clear any confusion. All guides and advice sections are written in simple English and are easy to follow.

When looking for a broadband package the first thing to do is establish whether you live in an area that can receive fixed-line broadband (a connection through a cable or phone line) or not. Do this by entering your postcode into a price comparison site; areas unable to access fixed-line broadband services will find the search results empty or the deals on offer will only be for dial-up internet. If this is the case, then it is worth looking at mobile or satellite broadband. While the speeds offered by mobile and satellite providers are not as impressive as fixed-line broadband, both types of connection are considerably faster than dial-up and will be offering improved speeds as the technology behind them develops further. All you need to be able to access satellite broadband is a dish, a router and a view of the sky. All you need to access mobile broadband is a wireless USB modem (commonly referred to as a 'dongle') and a mobile phone signal.

The next thing to check is the download allowance. If you want to stream video from TV catch-up sites and download music, it is worth browsing deals with high download allocation. If you just want to browse web pages, a lower monthly allowance will suit you fine.

If you live in an area that fixed-line broadband is available in but do not currently have a phone line in your home, providers such as BT, Virgin Media and TalkTalk can install a line for a discounted price if you agree to sign up to a broadband and phone bundle package. These deals give you a home phone price plan and broadband services, often for less than separate contracts.

Whatever form of broadband you decide on, make sure you also read customer reviews before you sign up. The last thing you want is to find out that coverage in your area is patchy and the tech support available is unhelpful.
