The Best Broadband Deals 2020

Student Broadband Comparision

Broadband is one of the most important, and expensive purchases for any student household! Picking the right one can save you hundreds of pounds, but making the wrong choice can be extremely costly and slow.

We’ve put together a guide of all the best deals available right now so you can find the perfect package for this year. We have only included 12 month or shorter contracts, as those are the only ones you should be looking at. The best offers are always for new customers. If you’re going to live in the same house for 2 years it’s still best to get a 12 month contract. That way, you can cancel it and choose a different lead tenant next year. You can literally save yourselves hundreds of pounds compared to getting an 18 month or 24 month contract!

If you aren’t ready to get your broadband yet, sign up to our newsletter and we will keep you up to date with the best deals! Also make sure you share this page with your mates so they don’t end up overspending on their broadband!

Tip: Every year in excess of 1 million students need broadband set up at the same time. The waiting times can be long, so the earlier you book your slot the better! If you know when you are moving in you can order now and pick a date in the future for your installation.

What Download Speed Do I Need?

The speed you need obviously depends on your usage. 60-100Mbps should be perfect for the average student household, but if you are in a high occupancy house (or everyone likes to watch Netflix in their room at the same time!) it might be worth considering more.
