Best UK Student Broadband Deals Compared

Picking the right deal is essential for students due to a lack of cash (especially after a Wednesday night at the union!) so use our Student Availability Checker on the right to find the best deal in your area.

Things to look for when choosing a provider :

  1. Best UK Student Broadband Deals ComparedDo You Want a Land Line?
    Today everyman and his dog has got a mobile phone so a land line may not be necessary. ADSL providers such as SKY and Be need a land line to run through so that means you either need to set up a BT land line or increasingly providers are offering their own land line packages. Alternatively Fibre Optic Broadband providers such as Virgin Media can offer you super fast broadband speeds without the need for a land line at all!
  2. Choose Your Contract Length
    if you're only likely to be at one residence for no more than a year don't get tied into long contracts. Be Broadband offer 3 month contracts which are perfect for short term housing deals, but they are slightly more expensive than their 12 month packages
  3. What Speed Do You Need?
    If you are in a shared house you need to think about the speed offered as it will become slower the more people that are online at the same time. So whether you're cramming for exams or facebooking, a slow connection is a definite no no!
  4. Suitable Download Allowance
    Again if you live in a shared house you need to think about how much you will collectively download. If one of your housemates wants to download entire movies you will soon see your bandwidth allowance dwindle and companies can charge hefty overuse charges! Virgin Media offer unlimited downloads and have consistently topped polls for top achievable speeds as well!
  5. Do You Want a Bundle Package?
    Modern student households often want to tie in digital TV with their broadband packages. We've highlighted some of the best packages above which shows that for a few more pounds a month you can get a decent home entertainment deal. This will increase your monthly spend but may save you some money in the long term if you don't have to go down the pub to watch sports (one pint often leads to a big night out!) but may also lead to a distraction when it comes to revising or actually doing some work.
  6. Do You Want to Make International Phone Calls?
    If you are at University as a foreign student it may be in your interests to choose a package with Orange or TalkTalk who have excellent call package options which makes calling home cost effective. Also companies like Orange, Vonage and BT have VoIP packages which give you FREE calls through your broadband connection.
