There are plenty of broadband offers out there, and it can get pretty confusing picking out the best provider for you. It’s important to know what you’re getting, and at what cost before placing your order.

On this page (and across our bills section) we compare the best value deals right now for students with an in-depth look into what you’re really getting for your money.

And unlike other broadband comparisons, we also take into account the hidden set up costs to give you a more transparent overall cost.
