What do I need to know to compare broadband providers?
There’s quite a bit to consider when searching for the best broadband provider for you:
- Type of broadband – do they offer the type you’re looking for? The main types are ADSL, fibre, cable and mobile
- Availability – is the type of broadband you’re looking for available in your area?
- Your usage – are there multiple users in the home? Do you stream a lot of music and video, or game online?
- Speed – will you need higher speeds to cope with your download usage?
- Price – how much are you willing to pay? It’s also about the value. It’s not worth paying more for an ultra-fast cable broadband if you won’t need the speeds it offers
- Contract length – how long are you tied in? Will the price increase after a specified number of months?
- Hardware – will you need any new hardware to get your connection up and running?
