Are there any broadband-only deals?
Yes, but it’s worth noting that sometimes getting a deal that has broadband and phone together can be cheaper. It just varies according to what offers are available in the market at that time. Depending on your postcode you could get:
- Virgin Media – the company offers broadband-only deals via its own fibre network.
- Mobile broadband (3G or 4G) – this is an option provided you live in an area with very good mobile phone reception. You’ll typically get a USB dongle to plug into your computer, or a special wireless box that just needs a power supply. Mobile connections tend to be slower than an ADSL or cable connections. We don’t currently offer comparisons between mobile broadband services.
- Hyperoptic – this is superfast broadband provided by the company’s own cable network, so you can have it with or without a landline. It’s installed building-by-building and is not yet widely available.
- Satellite broadband – satellite broadband is available anywhere and you won’t need a landline. However the cost might be more than paying for broadband with line rental, and coverage and speeds could be worse.
