Comparing BT broadband deals

BT broadband is the UK's most popular broadband service, with over 6.3 million homes enjoying BT's secure, reliable service and included extras, which range from free online security to inclusive online storage for all your files and family photos.

A range of packages are available, including fibre optic broadband with superfast speeds up to 76Mb, and regular broadband that's ideal for homes with fewer devices online at once and lighter internet usage.

Which BT broadband packages are available?

A range of packages are available to choose from, with different data allowances and speeds. The two main types of BT broadband packages to choose from are BT Infinity - a superfast broadband service with speeds up to 76Mb, and standard BT broadband, with speeds up to 17Mb.

BT Infinity

BT Infinity is BT's superfast fibre optic broadband service, with speeds up to 10x faster than the UK standard broadband average and outstanding reliability.

BT Infinity is best suited for families who connect lots of devices to their home network at the same time and do lots of data-intensive things online.

BT Broadband

BT's regular broadband service gives you speeds up to 16Mb and a stable, reliable connection. You can also opt for unlimited usage and benefit from online security & storage as part of your package. Regular BT broadband is best suited to homes with lighter internet usage and less devices connected to the network at the same time.
