What should I be paying for my broadband?

Phone line and broadband covered by work. Free sat for TV, so zilch. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
For your use I would have thought £10-15 a month and using freeview would suffice. Though I know some that pay £60 a month for their Virgin tv/broadband package, I’d ask whether those extra channels are worth it.neninjaMember
Just signed with Sky at home (wanted to go with BT but Sky deal was too good).
Unlimited fibre broadband – 12mth contract free for six months then £20 per month.
£14.50 line rental
£25 M&S voucher
£63.50 cashback via Topcashback
Worked out about £150 cheaper with Sky vs. BT over the 12 month contract after deducting the cashback and voucher.Posted 4 years agotpbikerMember
Current pay £39 per month all in for unlimited broadband, free weekend phone calls from a land line (although i have never ever used the phone ever, and a fairly basic tv package, ie no sky sports, movies etc.
Deal is through virgin, seems a bit steep. Whats everyone else paying?Posted 4 years agob rMember
If you are with Virgin, are you on cable?
We use to have 100mb broadband (cable) and now have 4mb as we’ve moved to a rural location and that’s it. Price has more than halved, but, tbh we barely notice a difference – still can surf while my wife watches a film through Sky on her laptop (while it’s downloading) and my son is online with his X-Box.Posted 4 years agokcalSubscriber
grum: £21 a month for unlimited broadband and phone line rental with plusnet. Think that includes some calls too but I’m not sure.
Plusnet here too. Couldn’t get unlimited though – perhaps that depends on exchange? Mine is 120GB/month, line rental, UK & international calls (wife’s sister is in Oz), plus caller ID. Broadband speed is I think around 6-8Meg, and have paid a bit more to get better contention (need broadband at home for work)..
Around £36 – £38 / month depending on the extra calls – mobile, minutes over calling abroad, helpline numbers)Posted 4 years agocrispoSubscriber
Where we live in Lancashire we could only get 0.1mb through the phone line but was still paying £25 for that and phone line.
Have switched to what is essentially a giant WIFI Internet as we can’t get fibre optic. Now getting guaranteed 10 meg unlimited download and have VoIP phone account that we pay £2/ month for a local number.
All in all £22 for 10 meg and phone line, just happy to have decent Internet!Posted 4 years agoallthepiesMember
Been looking into this recently. I’m on Virgin cable, 20Mb service. But since May there’s been a “utilisation fault” in my area which sees my cable modem intermittently drop the connection, sometime every 2 minutes.Posted 4 years ago
So, looking to change supplier and fibre is available in my area. Out of Plusnet and BT, plusnet are quite a bit cheaper so that’s where my ££ is going.DavesportSubscriber
Paying circa 40 quid to TT every month. This includes line rental, unlimited BB, all UK landline calls, cheap calls abroad. I’ve had no problems other than BB speed slowing at peak times. Apparently I’m paying extra because TT don’t have any equipment in the local (rural) exchange.
Musnit grumble….waiting on fiber optic.Posted 4 years agoJasonMember
I have just changed with Virgin. I was on a phone and TV package with their old set top box, I get home broadband provided by work, but it is on a BT line and very slow in the evenings. So switched to phone, 30mb broadband, and M+ TV with a Tivo box. New price is £29 per month fixed for 2 years, I also had to pay a £15 install fee. It took a bit of time on the phone with them to get that out of them, which is frustrating as it is a package they offer to new customers.Posted 4 years ago
