The quicker your broadband speed, the less likely it is that you will experience problems caused by different housemates being online at the same time.
Broadband speeds can vary based on your local area and telephone exchange. Most well connected cities can offer high broadband speeds. Faster download speeds will allow you to stream your favourite Netflix show without interruption even if your housemate is watching clips of cats playing the piano on YouTube. For households of four or more students, we recommend getting the fastest package available.
If you want a higher broadband speed, opt for Fibre broadband – speeds of which can range from 38Mb/s to 76Mb/s, depending on your location. For more information, take a look at our ‘Medium’ and ‘Large’ household packages.
The download limit is the amount of internet you are allowed to use in a given period (typically one month). Every email, internet page, song, Netflix film and YouTube clip will contribute towards your download limit.
To avoid paying extra for anything over your download limit, we would recommend going for an ‘Unlimited Downloads’ package. The majority of the packages we display come with Unlimited Downloads, which is the best package to get if you are in a large student house.
As former students, we know that you don’t want to be stuck in a contract when you may be living in a student house for only one year. That’s why we only display broadband offers that are 12 months or less.
Broadband providers like Sky and Virgin Media are great at accommodating students. They tend to offer contracts for a term of nine months, which is great for students starting university in September/October and finishing in May/June.
Line rental is a charge you need to pay to have an active telephone line into your student house. On average, this works out at about £18 a month.
All the prices we display for our packages are inclusive of line rental. By giving you the monthly price, there will be no nasty shocks when it comes to paying your broadband bill.
