What type of Internet user are you?

One of the first things you need to understand before committing to a broadband deal is what type of Internet user you are. Do you just check your emails every other day or are you a serious online gamer who can’t live without their daily Internet fix? Once you define the category of Internet user that you come in, searching for a broadband deal will be much simpler and will help you avoid signing up to something well beyond your needs.

Low Internet User

If you only use the Internet every other day to check emails, use Internet banking and visit the occasional website, then you are what is considered a Low Internet User.

A deal with a low usage cap should be adequate for you, as you are unlikely to reach the limit of downloads, and downloads speeds are unimportant, as you won’t be downloading heavy music and video files. You should look for the most basic broadband deal, which usually means the cheapest.

Medium Internet User

If you are on the Internet on a daily basis to do a bit of web surfing and online shopping, check your emails and social networking sites, use Internet banking and download the occasional music or video clip, then you are considered a Medium Internet User.

Most Internet providers offer broadband plans tailored to medium users, with moderate download limits and decent download speeds. If you reach your monthly limit before the end of the month, you will still have access to the Internet, however you will be charged for each extra GB used. If you find you are constantly exceeding your limit, then it may work out cheaper for you to upgrade your plan.

High Internet User

If you are on the Internet every day for more than a few hours, downloading or streaming video and music regularly or playing online games, then you are a High Internet User.

You will require a package with an unlimited download limit or a very high usage cap. The download and upload speed is also going to be of high importance, as fast Internet will enable you to do many things at once, such as browsing while streaming or downloading large files. You may find that broadband package deals that include your mobile and/or home phone line plus Internet offers you the best value for money.

Signing a contract for an Internet deal that is more than what you need will be a costly oversight. Upgrading your Internet plan is far easier than downgrading, so ensure you have a good understanding of what type of Internet user you are before even beginning to shop around for the best deal on your Internet.
