A broadband connection allows you to connect your computer and other compatible devices to the wonderful world of the Internet. There are a large number of broadband (ISP) providers, and it can be a little overwhelming choosing between the number of options available. Generally you will be signing up for a 12 month contract with whoever you choose to use, you will normally pay a monthly fee for the service, so it’s best to make sure you get the options right at the start to avoid problems down the line. It is well worth checking out the download limits (caps) that may be imposed with some broadband options, as this could result in further costs or restricted service for a period of time.
Each broadband supplier will have a availability checker on their website which will let you know if they are able to provide you with their service, and also what likely connection speed you should be able to receive.
Many broadband suppliers also offer bundle deals with telephone call packages, and quite often deals including your landline, it can be well worth looking at the package deals as these can save money over purchasing broadband and your telephone separately.
If you haven’t got a landline, or are looking to use broadband on the move with a laptop or other mobile device (Ipads etc) you can use the increasingly popular mobile broadband packages that are on offer. These let you use computer while away from home or even at home without the use of a traditional telephone landline.
