Broadband and phone packages

The vast majority of broadband providers require you to take a landline with their broadband product. Some providers allow the landline to be supplied by a different company but for the most part you should be looking to get a broadband and phone line from the same company.

To make sure you are getting the right broadband and phone package for your circumstances you need to ensure that your selected broadband provider covers your area (use our broadband availability postcode checker for this), your download speeds are fast enough, the price is within your budget and you have a sufficient broadband usage plan (unlimited is usually best).

When considering the phone line part of the package you need to decide how often you use your home phone and whether there are particular times in the day that you use it most as this will help determine what phone plan to opt for. By working out your typical phone usage you will then help to prevent paying for services that you simply don’t use or need.

Types of phone and broadband packages

Broadband

There are two main choices when it comes to taking out a broadband contract and they are largely dictated by how fast you need your broadband to be.

ADSL (standard) broadband with phone

ADSL is the cheapest broadband option which works via the copper telephone cables that connect your landline. ADSL broadband technology is quite old and they can represent good value for those that don’t need the fastest broadband on the market. You can choose from unlimited usage or capped usage to save further money.

Fibre broadband with phone

Fibre broadband is the faster version of broadband that you can get at home. Speeds can be well in excess of 5 times faster than standard ADSL broadband. So if you have a large household of people that will use the Internet regularly or you have many Internet capable devices then a fibre broadband deal will usually be the best option.

Call packages

Once you’ve decided on the type of broadband you would like to get, you need to work out your regular home phone usage so you choose the most applicable calls package. Inclusive call packages include –

Free anytime calls

If you opt to take out a free anytime calls package you will be able to make calls to landlines and mobile phones at any time of the day or night free of charge provided that the type of calls fall within the rules of your calling plan. For instance international calls or 0870 numbers may not be included so always check the terms of your landline provider.

Free evening and weekend calls

By having a free evening and weekends call plan you will be able to make calls free of charge to landlines and mobiles within the hours determined as “evening” and “weekend” by your landline provider. The specific hours classed as evening and weekend can vary based on different companies so do check which are the “free” times as well as the type of calls that might not fit within the free call criteria.

Free weekend calls

Free weekend calls would amount to the same as the evening and weekend calls plan – just omit the free evening calls part!

PAYG (pay as you go) calls

This is a type of calling plan where you do not have inclusive free calls added into the package. You would simply pay the operators call charge based on the type of numbers you are calling, time or day, length of call, landline or mobile, standard, premium or international call. Essentially, your landline provider will have their standard call rates noted within their package details and these are the charges you will pay based on your calling activity.

You need to ask yourself which calling plan you fit into best and then opt for that one.
