What makes a Which? Recommended Provider?

Which? Recommended Providers are the cream of the crop, and the accolade is only given to broadband companies that achieve a customer score of 70% or above.

That's not all. We know that price is important, so companies can only be Recommended Providers if they charge a reasonable price for their services. If they charge too much they're not eligible, whatever score they receive in the survey.

What is the latest Utility Warehouse router?

Utility Warehouse used to offer a range of different routers and had a rental model, but now new customers are supplied with the provider's UW Wi-Fi Hub for free.

Utility Warehouse broadband deals

Utility Warehouse has several choices of broadband deal, though some are only offered to people in certain areas. Utility Warehouse does offer standard (ADSL) broadband, though it doesn't advertise it to people unless it's the only service available.

It also offers a range of fibre packages - two are very widely available and have average speeds of 35Mbps and 63Mbps. Its ultrafast deals have average speeds of 100Mbps and 500Mbps but are only available in certain locations.

All of Utility Warehouse's deals include unlimited data and there's no minimum contract for standard-speed broadband. Minimum contracts are 18 months for fibre. Unusually, all of Utility Warehouse's broadband deals have a £10 disconnection fee, but on the other hand, Utility Warehouse commits to keep the price of its broadband deals the same for the full length of customers' contracts - unlike several other big broadband providers.

The company also offers energy and mobile deals, as well as home insurance and boiler cover. Discounts are available if you take out more than one service, and it passes on further savings if you use its Cashback card.
