Broadband Unbundled Deals

Compare broadband deals, phone line & TV to create your perfect package

We compare 16 major providers. See who we do & don't compare.

Sorry, we can't yet do a full comparison for all Hull postcodes.

This is because in some areas - though not all - there's only one provider of fixed landline and broadband services, which is KCOM (previously Kingston Communications). This makes it harder to do a full comparison.

We're working with broadband firms and our data provider to get a more accurate view of these boundaries but in the meantime, we apologise for any inconvenience.

Enter your postcode below - the deals you can get depend on where you live.

    Who we do and don't compare

    This tool looks at 16 of the biggest providers, including the giants of BT, Sky and Virgin. Plus special deals we've found or blagged that we think are top picks. Yet there are also many small providers we can't list - which occasionally have cheap deals - so it's always worth checking direct with any local provider you know of.
    Let us know if you find a top deal we've missed and see which providers this tool covers.

    Switching can save you £100s

    Many get a cheap promo deal for broadband, line rent and/or TV, and stick with it when it ends, usually paying £100s/year more than they started with. Don't let it be you - compare now and see if you could save

    Fast advertised speeds don't mean faster broadband

    Providers only have to advertise the average speed received by at least 50% of customers between 8pm and 10pm. Your actual speed can depend on a host of factors - see the full checklist of tips in Broadband Speed Boosting.

    Consider your need for speed

    If it's just you and the dog, you're likely to be fine with standard speeds averaging around 11Mb. If you share a house, or you use the web for movie downloads, streaming or gaming, you may want to opt for faster speeds in excess of 30Mb.

    Beware of mid-contract switching costs

    Usually you'll pay for the rest of the contract plus termination fees. If your provider increases prices mid-contract and didn't warn you before you signed up, you can switch penalty-free within 30 days of notification of the price hike.


  • 1. About this tool

    It covers the 16 broadband and 6 digital TV providers available via the Decision Tech data stream, which powers our tool. These are BT, Direct Save Telecom, EE, Gigaclear, Hyperoptic, John Lewis, Now Broadband, Plusnet, Post Office, Shell Energy Broadband, Sky, SSE, TalkTalk, Virgin Media, Vodafone and Zen.

    Our small editorial team then manually try and spot other deals that beat those from other comparison sites and nationwide providers (with reasonable service levels) - as usually the cheapest deals are short lived promotions. If we spot market leading deals elsewhere, we do our best to add them to the tool, in addition to deals we blag specially for MSE users.

    Sadly, it is incredibly difficult to do a comparison that covers the whole market. This is because there are numerous firms that only cover limited regions that do not provide a data feed, meaning we'd have to manually input them all, which is a mega task. Yet there are a lot of small local providers that we can't list which occasionally may have cheap deals, so if you know of ones near you then it's always worth checking those too.

    Also, some providers may restrict access to their exclusive deals, though we continually work to get as many into the tool as possible within the scope of our limited resources. While this doesn't cover the whole market, with all these added together we hope we've more deals than other comparisons.

    We're always happy to hear about deals we might have missed, let us know by emailing the details to We'll take a look to see if it's good enough to include.

    If a link has an * by it, it is an affiliated link that helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment or benefit to the site. It's worth noting this means the third party used may be named on any credit agreements.

    You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link. For more details, read How This Site Is Financed.

    We use industry data feeds from Decision Tech Ltd to help us cover a broad range of the products in the telecoms market, but we hand-pick top deals from providers and other comparisons and add those in too. The companies part of our data feed are BT, Direct Save Telecom, EE, Gigaclear, Hyperoptic, John Lewis, Now Broadband, Plusnet, Post Office, Shell Energy Broadband, Sky, SSE, TalkTalk, Virgin Media, Vodafone and Zen.

    The majority of the products listed on site will be updated as soon as they are made available by through our industry data feeds by Decision Tech Ltd. We will endeavour to display deals we hand-pick from other sites as quickly as possible when they become available in the market.

    It's to work out whether you can get the service or the deal, nothing more than that. Providers don't work in all areas.

    We rank based on equivalent monthly cost, including incentive values, ie, cashback or vouchers. We do give you a full cost breakdown for this, so you'll see the elements that make up the cost we rank by.

    We take into account the monthly costs of broadband, line rent and TV over the contract, any set up or activation fees then deduct the value of cashback or some vouchers. With vouchers, we only deduct the value if it's for a major retailer or one you can use at numerous retailers, making it close to cashback. This figure is divided by the contract length which gives the equivalent monthly cost.

    No, but you may sometimes get more cashback via a cashback site, though this is often on different deals. For example, the broadband and line rent could cost more.

  • 2. Deals help

    The aim of the tool is to provide you with details of the deals available to you. It's up to you to decide which deal is right for you. Think about the services you actually use and base your search on that.

    Unbundling is where you get your broadband and phone line rental from one provider, and your TV from another. It can work out cheaper than getting them from the same provider and it's what makes this tool different - we include Unbundled deals in the results.

    We will tell you which providers allow you to do it but we can't show you the upfront Effective Monthly Cost just yet. Most people pay for broadband and line rental monthly so it's not something we've included in this first incarnation of the tool. We are constantly improving the tool, so this may be something we add at a later date. We do include a few hand-picked deals from other comparisons sites too, as well as deals MoneySavingExpert has blagged directly from providers.

    Let us know by emailing the details to We'll take a look and see if we can include it.

    During the application process on the provider's site.

    Sometimes members of specialist cashback websites can be paid when they sign up to some products and services. Do check that it's exactly the same deal though, as terms can differ. Also remember the cashback is never 100% guaranteed until it's in your account.

    Full help to take advantage of this and pros & cons in our Top Cashback Sites guide.

    Most of the time, yes. When you call up you're likely to be offered a different deal, often not as strong as the online one.

    If you're happy with them and the price is right, then go for it. Telecoms companies are easy to haggle with so if the offer isn't quite what you want, try to negotiate a better one. Though do a comparison first so you know what other deals are out there - it can help your case.

    Please email with full details.

    You can but those deals often cost more than the deals with lines so they're not often worth it, though do check - this tool includes them.

    There are different processes according to the deal you've signed up for.

    Most BT deals require you to redeem this once your connection has been activated.

    For Mastercard

    For cashback

    For iTunes/Amazon vouchers

    For John Lewis/M&S/Boots/Costa vouchers

    If after going through these routes and you've still not received your voucher, you can escalate this to BT via these forms:

    For BT Rewards/iTunes/Amazon vouchers

    Anything else (including cashback cheques)

    If it has been over 2 months and you haven't received it, call 0800 432 0200 and have your username and password to hand. It will then hopefully assist you with locating your missing cheque.

    If you signed up to an MSE Blagged deal - a best-in-market offer we've negotiated exclusively - which involves you being sent a voucher, we'll always do our best to ensure you get the voucher.

    However, there can occasionally be problems with the deal tracking. In particular, if you were running ad-blocking software or cookie blockers when you signed up for the deal, or exited your browser while in the process of signing up, this can stop it tracking correctly. We've some key steps that can help:

    1) Do first make sure you've followed all the steps required to get the voucher or cashback. Some deals require you to fill in online forms to redeem the offer, separately from signing up to it.

    2) Also you can check the details of expired deals at this link - before going further, check that the deal is due (sometimes you might have to wait up to 90 days to receive it).

    3) If you've done this and your voucher is now overdue, first reach out to your provider, which'll be best placed to follow up.

    4) If you've already done steps 1-3 and are still struggling, drop a note through to including your full name, order number, provider and details of the deal. If you're eligible we'll see if we can help push the provider for you.

    Firms are required to show the average speed received by at least 50% of its current customer base between 8pm and 10pm - when most people are online. However, you should still only use it as an indication of the speeds you may get. If you want to know the speed you're most likely to get to your home, the best way is to check before committing to a contract. Most major providers adhere to Ofcom's voluntary code of practice, which means you will be shown an estimated access line speed before committing - based on the speeds of other customers with a similar connection.

  • 3. How switching works

    Mostly no, but it doesn't hurt just to be sure. Moving to or from Virgin can be slightly different - see below.

    Switching broadband to and from companies other than Virgin Media: Every major provider except Virgin (200+ in total, incl BT, Sky & TalkTalk) is on the BT Openreach network. If you're switching between them, when you sign up for a new deal it's the new supplier's job to notify your existing one and cancel the contract. You don't need to do anything else.

    Moving broadband to or from Virgin: Since Virgin Media runs its own network, the switching process is a little more complicated. You'll need to contact your existing supplier yourself to cancel. It should then give you a termination date, so try to coordinate this with the start date With Virgin Media to avoid loss of service. This is a standard process and you should be able to do it without much hassle.

    Switching TV (whether as part of a package or a separate deal): If you're switching broadband, it works as above. If you're switching a TV deal - whether or not it's with the same provider as your broadband - you'll need to call up and cancel the package yourself. Typically you'll need to give 30 days' notice. If you're still in contract you're also likely to have to pay the remainder of the contract to get out of it. As you have to cancel the old TV deal and sign up to the new one, you'll need to ensure you time it right to avoid paying two TV providers in one month.

    Yes, but assuming it all goes smoothly usually only for no more than a few hours on the day it's being connected.

    You should almost always be able to keep your number, though you may encounter problems if you're switching at the same time as moving home. Just tell your new provider you want to keep it - usually as part of the sign up process - and it should arrange it with your previous provider.

    You can but you're more than likely to pay early termination fees to cover the remainder of your contract. Check your original contract to find out the exact terms and fees payable if you do.

    If broadband is available in the area you're moving to, often you can. If it's not, call up your provider and ask. Some may have to pay, others may waive the fees.

    You'll be rolled onto your providers standard prices - typically far more than you'll pay on a promotional offer. Diarise the end of your contract and make sure you switch to another promo deal with a new provider, or haggle with your existing provider to avoid paying more than you have to.

    Technically, as often as you like. However, you're likely to agree to a miniumum contract term. If you switch during that period, you'll be liable to pay for the remainder of your contract anyway so it's not usually worth it. Do weigh up how long you have to go though - if a new deal is cheap enough you may want to pay to get out of the contract.

    Technical problems can occur but they're rare and it may take longer than expected depending on where you live.

    It depends on the service. For Sky you'll need an engineer to come and set it up. For Virgin, BT etc. often you can do it yourself. Technical issues can occur in which case you may need an engineer. Your provider will tell you if that's the case.

    An engineer will need to come round to set it up. This can take a little while to arrange and is often on weekdays.

    You can but the point of this tool is that we show when it is and isn't cheaper. Plus it's not an option with some providers.

    Yes. This is normal for utilities - as it is for energy and mobile contracts to this is the ensure you'll honour the contract. If you're worried, you can check your credit file via our Credit Club.

    Under rules from regulator Ofcom, if the contract was taken out after 23 Jan 2014, if your landline, broadband or mobile (but not TV) firm raises prices without warning you before you signed up then you are allowed to leave penalty-free.

    But do check the T&Cs as providers may state in there that they reserve the right to hike prices in line with inflation, which would count as a warning.

    If it happens without warning all you have to do is tell your provider within 30 days of getting notification from it, and you can then leave penalty-free. That said, only do so if you can find a better price.

  • 4. Further help

    The broadband industry doesn't have the best customer service reputation and while a provider may be good for some, it can be hell for others. Common problems include installation dates not being met, limited service or slow speeds, incorrect billing and more. It's always worth trying to call your provider first, but if not then try Resolver*, the complaints handling tool.

    Where necessary we will warn you about poorly rated providers. That said, even top-rated providers sometimes have problems.

    We've tips in our Boost Broadband Speed Guide.

    If it's within the cooling off period - typically 14 days - you can. After that you're liable for the cost of the contract.
