Top Broadband Deals
Do you need to renew your home broadband, but lacking a good deal? With the increasing demand for broadband users and the economic recession, several service providers have created tempting packages to lure switchers and new subscribers alike.
Have a look below for the top 3 broadband offers discovered by your fellow readers on Hot UK Deals:
1. O2 Home Broadband (found by charliebrown): A standard package starts from £7.34 per month (or £12.23 for all other customers) with one month free of charge. This price includes: up to 8 meg download speed (subject to location), McAfee security software, upload speed 1.3 meg, 100 free web texts per month, O2 wireless router, unlimited usage, no connection charge, up to 10 O2 email addresses and free UK customer service.

For an extra monthly cost you can opt for a premium or pro package.

Unlimited usage package is also available for £11.99 per month. Broadband and home phone packages are available from £15.74 per month. Reader crocodilemick mentions that plusnet were bought by BT a while ago, and as such you can use a BT homehub with them.
3. Virgin Media - 3 for £20 Deal (found by meclive): Great deals for those looking for phone and TV as well as broadband connection. By using Virgin for all 3 services, you can get fantastic monthly prices. Click through their best value bundles to see what bundles are available. One value loaded Virgin package includes up to 10 Mb fibre optic broadband, over 100 digital TV channels and unlimited weekend UK landline calls. All of this for just £19 per month for three months and then £24 per month after that
Tip: meclive says if you add the L or XL broadband to your order the free wireless router is added to your basket, if you then downgrade to M broadband the wireless router will stay be in your basket for £0.00 saving you another £40.
Final note: Before applying for new subscriptions with any kind of services, you should make sure to read the service contract, espeially the fine print. Cancellation and pre-termination of services and packages might entail payment of cancellation fees equivalent to the entire period you have applied on. To avoid this unnecessary fuss and future wrangling with broadband service companies, take your time looking around for the best deals and packages.
