When you visit the Broadband Compare website and input your address and requirements the Broadband Compare technology matches your request and determines the suitability of different broadband plans based on a range of factors that you set. These include the available connection types (Fibre, VDSL, ADSL), anticipated data usage, broadband speed requirements, contract length, price, landline requirements, modem needs and any special promotions or value adds.
As a simple summary, the higher the Broadband Compare rating the better suited we believe a plan is to your needs. This means your top rated recommendation won't always be the cheapest plan available. For example, if you are a keen online gamer you need fast speeds with a high upload speed and unlimited data. Your next door neighbour might only use the internet for social media and checking email so their requirements are completely different and as such the Broadband Compare website will recommend different plans for the two of you.
