M125 Fibre Broadband is currently our most affordable student broadband deal and best on
price. But whatever speed you need, see if you can get it cheaper on the longer contract -
our 12-month student broadband deals will usually have a lower monthly cost than the 30-
day options.


Gig1 student broadband deals are our fastest and best for speed, averaging uploads of
104Mbps and downloads of 1,130Mbps. The more housemates you split the cost with, the more affordable our faster speeds
will feel, so you’d be surprised how fast you can really go within your personal budget.


Rolling 30-day deals could be our best student broadband deals for temporary housing.
These are easy for you to end at any time with no cancellation fees, you simply keep it
rolling for as long as you need, even just for part of a semester. Our longer, 12-month
student broadband deals are also much more flexible than the standard 18-month options.


Our 99.89% reliable network powers all our student broadband deals, providing superfast
connections that you can rely on. For extra peace of mind, you can also add the WiFi
guarantee with WiFi Max to any of our student broadband deals and get promised speeds in
every room, or bill credit back.
