What broadband speed do I need?

Superfast fiber broadband may sound appetizing, but may not be necessary for your home, especially if you want to reduce costs. Instead, it might be worth considering a slower and more economical ADSL.

Broadband speeds are represented in megabits per second or Mb. In general terms, the more Mbs, the faster the broadband speed. But remember that the announced speed is the maximum and does not necessarily represent the actual speed you will get. That varies depending on where you live.

0-25Mb This entry-level broadband speed is transmitted through an ADSL connection to your nearest LV switchboard. The equivalent of 2.1 MB per second should be fast enough for small households where only one or two people use the Internet at the same time. Keep in mind that if you transmit TV, you may experience a strange interruption.

25-50Mb Where Virgin led the way, the rest followed him. Now, each large provider offers fast fiber broadband. This is the ideal point between fast speeds and good value for money and only the ticket for a family home where four or five members are all transmitting, downloading and browsing at the same time.

50 + Mb If you transmit 4K TV or many people try to use your broadband connection at the same time, then it may be worth it to pay for the extra speed. It may cost more, but use is virtually guaranteed without delay, in addition, providers often sweeten the deal with extras and additional rewards.

What length of contract should I choose?

Most broadband providers lock you up for at least 12 months, with one-year plans being by far the most common. That said, perhaps following the example of mobile phone contracts, we now see that some providers are experimenting with longer plans, with 18-month contracts raising their heads.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, some providers now offer short-term renewable contracts. Virgin Media, for example, has 30-day plans for commitment frauds. The drawback is that you are expected to play a larger configuration fee.

When your contract comes to an end, be prepared to raise your monthly rate, especially if you are lucky enough to get a great presentation offer at the beginning.

Will I have to pay something in advance for broadband?

Usually. Sometimes referred to as "setup", "initial" or "activation" rates, most major broadband providers request at least some payment when the contract is initiated. The amount usually depends on the package level you choose, but it will probably be between 10 and 60 pounds. Only TalkTalk defies the trend: they have canceled their activation fee completely, while other brands carry out frequent promotions in which they temporarily eliminate their initial cost.

However, there may be other additional extras. If you take a TV and broadband package, you may be charged the TV set-top box. And some, including BT and EE, charge the delivery of the router.

Do I have to pay more to have a phone line?

If you still use a home landline to make and receive calls, you're lucky: many broadband plans not only include a landline, they include it in your monthly price.

However, you'll have to start paying more when you have a personalized calling plan. You will see that your standard monthly bill begins to increase when you start adding unlimited afternoon, daytime or international calls to the mix.
