What are the pros and cons of BT broadband?
The general characteristics of BT’s broadband offering are reliability at a premium. You’ll get strong, continuous speeds that should be available throughout your home. But the big negative is that you’ll generally be paying above average market rates for its service. With this in mind, here’s what you can expect:
- Good for: large households, aficionados of high-quality streaming, gamers and sports fans – all of whom have a bit of cash to spare.
- Not so good for: smaller households, homes with low internet usage and people on tight budgets.
The provider offers the following broadband options:
- ADSL: internet speeds of 10 to 12Mbps coming into your home via your phone line (this option is gradually being phased out by fibre)
- Standard fibre: speeds averaging around 20 to 35Mbps, via fibre cables and then your phone wires
- Superfast fibre: speeds in the region of 50 to 80Mbps, via fibre-optic cables coming all the way into your home
- Ultrafast fibre/ Full fibre: the fastest option across most of the UK, with speed of 100Mbps to 900+Mbps.
