We'll tell you exactly what you need to know about all the UK's biggest broadband providers, and help you avoid signing up for a deal you'll come to regret.
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.
Zen Internet supplies the FRITZ!Box 7530 router to all new broadband customers (existing customers can upgrade for £78). The router is free with no delivery charge.
While Zen doesn't offer as many promotional deals or incentives as some of its rivals, it offers a range of packages, including standard, superfast and ultrafast options. Changes to the way mean that Zen Internet now offers cheaper broadband-only deals for those happy to forego a landline.
Zen's prices tend to remain fairly static and it commits to keeping your price the same for the full length of your contract. This is in contrast to several of the big broadband providers, which increase the price of their deals every year, whether you're in your minimum contract period or not.
