Broadband switching has never been easier
Join the switching revolution! Let’s tackle the cost of living by putting money back in your pocket.
How it works
Five simple steps to help you choose the right deal:
Check the monthly price
Check the deal is within your budget first – don’t get dazzled by words like “superfast” and “unlimited”.
Compare internet speeds in your area
Keep setup costs in mind
Sometimes installing your new broadband set up can cost more than the amount you’d save on a lower-priced deal.
What will you be using the internet for?
Streaming movies or playing online games means you’ll need a faster internet speed than someone who only needs it to check emails.
Extras, add-ons and bundles
Some providers offer extra perks or a discount if you bundle your phone and internet together. Make sure all of what you’re getting is useful to you, so you don’t waste money.
And that’s it!

“Good” broadband depends on what you’re after.
If you use your internet intensively – for streaming and gaming, for example – higher speed plans with no usage cap will probably be good for you. If you want your internet for less complicated tasks like checking the news, then lower speed deals could work well.
That depends on what you use the internet for and how many devices are in your household.
Here’s a rough idea of what certain speeds do:
- 25Mbps – one to two person household with up to five devices. You could stream one high quality TV show if there are no other internet connections
- 50Mbps – two to four person household with up to seven devices. You could watch two or three video streams alongside other online activities
- 100Mbps – four to six person household with up to 10 devices. This would suit most families
- 200Mbps+ – got a large family or have a serious gamer in your household? This speed should allow everyone to watch different things at the same time or use the internet while someone else is online gaming.
If you’re not sure what your usage is, contact your current provider and ask.
When providers say “average speed”, it means the download speed that at least 50% of its customers achieved during peak hours (from 8pm until 10pm for residents and 12pm until 2pm for businesses).
There are three main categories of internet user:
- Light – a one person household that uses the internet to check the news, emails, social media and for online banking
- Medium – a two or three person household that does the above, plus occasionally streaming TV shows or films and shopping online
- Heavy – a household with four or more people, who do everything light and medium users do, as well as stream high quality films, TV shows or music, game online and often have video calls
