What to consider when picking a broadband package
When you’re comparing all of the broadband options and weighing up which one is best for you, you might want to consider the following:
Whether you’re a light casual internet user or a gaming and streaming fiend will be a big factor in deciding which bundle is right for you. Carefully consider just how fast of a broadband speed you require and whether you require all of the wonderful add-ons that come with some of our more complete bundles.
If you have a fast paced life and want to do multiple things with your broadband package at once, you’re going to need a deal that can keep up with you. If you want the best of the best, our Gig1 Fibre is the ultimate option for any broadband speedster, with download speeds averaging over 1Gbps, where it's available, so you never need to slow down unnecessarily ever again. You can check your current broadband speed Postcode Checker here.
If you’re using your broadband during the day for work then you’ll want to make sure your connection is good enough to handle video calls and emails. And when the work day is over, you may still want a good amount of internet speed to unwind with your favourite TV show or a blockbuster movie. If that’s the case, you’ll need a package that won’t let you down.
A full house usually means heavy usage. Got kids? Then you better be prepared to have a package that can deal with gaming as well as movie streaming. Make sure you compare all of our deals to find one that’s right for every member of your household.
If you’re a regular chatterbox then you’ll have to think about having a bundle that includes phone calls with your broadband so you can ensure you’re never without an ear to chew off.
If you can’t go an evening without watching a latest movie release or getting your binge on with a thrilling series then you’re going to need to look at a bundle that includes some of our TV and entertainment channels.
