Can we get a 9-month contract broadband deal for our student accommodation?
Yes. In recent years, the big providers have introduced more flexible broadband deals aimed at those living in shared accommodation and students.
If flexibility is very important to you, there are providers – like Virgin Media, BT and Sky – who offer 9-month contracts. Although you’ll often find yourself paying more per month for these services.
In theory, short-term deals should mean cheaper ones. And if you’re a student, having a 9-month contract, as opposed to 12-18 months, may well be of interest.
However, it’s worth remembering that many providers offer incentives to get you to sign up for 12-18 months – these can include free services or reduced price services for a period of time – so it’s a good idea to use our [comparison service] < link to quote > to review all your options.
If price is your deciding factor, you might find it works out cheaper to pay for the entire period or pay a cancellation fee on a 12-month contract, rather than taking out a short-term specialist package.
