Making Sure the Broadband Deal You Sign Up is the Best for Your Needs

By David Martin Subscribe to RSS | February 23rd 2012 | Views:

With hundreds of broadband providers vying for your custom, choosing the one that can offer you the most suitable deal can sometimes be an exhausting experience. With each provider claiming to offer the fastest, most reliable service, this process sounds time-consuming but thanks to some fantastic free online tools, it need not be.

If you are looking to switch providers or get signed up to a broadband deal, your first port of call should always be a broadband comparison service. These sites allow you browse the packages available to residents in your area by just entering your postcode; no having to sign up, no entering a valid email address and being added to a mailing list without your consent. Whether you want a fixed-line broadband connection that runs through your copper phone line or fibre optic cabling, or you live in a rural area and would like to access broadband through a mobile signal or satellite dish, a visit to a comparison site can help you sift out all the deals that are too expensive for your budget and rule out deals that are insufficient for your web-browing needs.

The more expensive a broadband deal, the faster the connection speed and higher the download allowance tends to be. If you often play online games or use video streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon's LoveFilm or the BBC's iPlayer catch-up service, a fast connection with a large download allowance is advisable. If you only use your web connection to browse the occasional website or to do a bit of shopping, the speed of your connection does not need to be so high, so to get value for money it is recommedned to look at cheaper deals that offer slower connections.

It is also worth keeping in mind that there may be some charges to get your service up and running. If you do not currently have a phone line installed in your home, it may be worth looking at a bundle deal that offers multiple services under one monthly bill. Providers like BT will give customers that sign up to these deals a substantial discount and many providers will also offer money off bills if you agree to pay by direct debit.

Broadband speeds are measured in Mbps (megabits per second). The average speed of a connection in the UK is currently 7Mbps, which is more than enough for browsing websites and downloading the occasional song or movie. If your family all have their own means of connecting to the web and you feel that a connection speed of 7Mbps or less would not be sufficient for their needs, there are deals available that offer connection speeds of up to 100Mbps, although the cost of line rental per month will probably be extremely high.

If you are certain of what you want your internet connection to allow you to do and how much you can spend each month, finding a suitable deal should not be difficult, if you make sure you visit a price comparison site.
