Broadband Providers Uk - UK Home Broadband Providers Comparison

bull mbs speed month

Anyone who spends any amount of time on the internet requires broadband internet service. Broadband is a high-speed internet connection that has largely replaced the old system of phone network dial-up. Broadband is available 24-hours and, unlike dial-up, it is always on. It can be used with home computers, laptops, and, with a wireless router, mobile devices. Broadband comes into the home in one of two ways: through the telephone lines for an ADSL broadband connection or through the cable television line.

Home broadband is compared by using the following criteria:

• Availability – Not all broadband services are available in all locations.
• Price – There is a one-time installation fee and a monthly fee.
• Speed – Speed generally ranges from 8 Mbs to 50 Mbs.
• Usage Caps- Some providers limit data usage, while others are unlimited.
