About BT Broadband Deals
BT has deals available that should meet the needs of most households. You'll find standard broadband, fibre broadband and even ultrafast fibre broadband deals. You can add TV, Mobile, landline calls and other great add-ons to these deals should you need to. Each broadband deal from BT comes with unlimited usage, so you can use your internet connection as much as you'd like without worry.
Standard Broadband (ADSL)
Standard broadband is available almost everywhere in the UK. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer fast speeds (up to 10Mbps), and it's only recommended for households with light internet usage.
BT will only offer you standard broadband if fibre or ultrafast fibre is not available at your property. Standard broadband is the cheapest type of broadband. However, that does come at the cost of speed and reliability.
A large portion of the UK now has access to fibre broadband. Each property will differ in the speeds it can achieve on a fibre broadband service, so BT offers 3 fibre packages. Fibre Essential will give you speeds of up to 36Mbps; Fibre 1 offers speeds of up to 50Mbps, whereas Fibre 2 offers speeds up to 67Mbps.
Ultrafast Fibre Broadband (Full Fibre)
Full Fibre is rapidly expanding across the UK. However, its coverage is still pretty low. It's likely that your property won't be able to get Full Fibre broadband, but if it can, you should consider taking advantage of it.
Full Fibre Broadband can offer speeds of up to 900Mbps and the most reliable internet connection. BT has 4 Full Fibre packages for you at different price points. The packages include Full Fibre 100, Full Fibre 300, Full Fibre 500 and Full Fibre 900. These packages will be an excellent fit for households with heavy internet usage.
BT Broadband Prices
BT positions itself as a premium broadband provider. You'll often find higher monthly prices and longer contracts when comparing BT to other providers in the market. But these higher prices and longer contracts are often justified by the service and add-ons you'll receive by being a BT customer.
You can pick from 5 flexible TV packages with BT: Sport, Big Sport, Entertainment, Big Entertainment and VIP. As a bonus, you can switch between these TV packages at any point during your 24-month contract. So if the football season is over, you can change to a cheaper package until the new season starts.
The BT Entertainment packages are powered by a NOW TV membership, allowing you access to popular channels such as Sky Atlantic. Of course, you can pick up BT Sport, and if you go with the Big Sport package, you'll receive access to the 11 Sky Sports channels.
BT TV can be accessed through the BT TV Box you receive when you sign up. The box can record up to 600 hours of content, and it comes equipped with Dolby Atmos sound and is 4k HDR enabled to provide you with the best viewing experience.
BT SIM-only Deals
BT offers some fantastic SIM-only deals with some unique add-ons you won't find with another provider. By taking out a SIM-only deal with 20GB of data or more, you'll receive the BT Sport app for free. You'll also be able to access the 5 million BT WiFi hotspots for free.
Unfortunately, BT no longer offers any handset deals. This is because they've partnered up with EE to deliver you exclusive discounts. If you're a BT customer, you'll be able to access exclusive discounts with EE on handset and SIM-only deals.
