+ £15.99 line rental
The UK’s most popular broadband provider, but not particularly student friendly, with 18 month contracts and early cancellation fees.
BT is the UK’s most popular broadband provider, and offers basic broadband packages from £7.50 for the first six months (rising to £10 after), with a line rental of £15.99 per month. Be aware though that you will only get a monthly usage of 10GB and if you use more than this excess charges will be applied.
The unlimited Broadband package is therefore the better option – the same line rental costs apply, with broadband costing £8 for the first six months and then £16 thereafter; plus you get a free £50 Sainsbury’s voucher. However, we think that you should only really consider this is you plan to stay in the same property for two years, as the minimum contract is 18 months and cancellation charges apply if you end the contract before that time.
