1. Vodafone – the UK’s cheapest widely available fibre
Vodafone Superfast 1 | 18 months | 35Mb avg speed | Line rental inc. | FREE upfront | £20 per month
You can’t really argue with the way Vodafone seems to price its broadband. It takes a look around at the UK internet market and then undercuts the competition by a few quid. That means just £20 per month gets you fibre at the moment, which also means its speed guarantee where you get money back if yours drops below 25Mb.
2. BT – £100 Reward Card and faster speeds
BT Superfast Fibre | 18 months | 50Mb avg speed | Weekend calls | £9.99 router delivery | £29.99pm + £100 Reward Card
Always a popular option, BT charges a bit more for its fibre internet. But it pays to take a close look before rejecting it. For starters, it throws in a pre-paid £100 Mastercard for all new customers, which brings the actual effective monthly cost down to less than £25. And note the quicker speeds as well – the equivalent to over 6MB per second.
