Mission

High speeds bring us closer. We’re here to help with that.

BroadbandUK is the independent broadband guide you can trust. From our highly accurate speed test to our address-level internet coverage comparison tool, we empower you to get properly connected.

Thanks to our industry-leading collaborations with Ofcom and Openreach, you can see the true speeds that providers are able to deliver at your property. No more settling for a postcode approximation.

We believe that everyone should have access to free, accurate and unbiased information when it comes to broadband. Our goal will always be the same: to equip you with the knowledge to make informed choices.

Our Services

Broadband Speed Test

Our cross platform, web-based speed test is one of the UK’s leading quantitative measures of internet performance, used by tens of thousands of users every month.

Broadband Providers

The UK's most accurate broadband comparison website provides a clearer picture of broadband availability for your property with address-level precision.

Independent and impartial

We work for you.

BroadbandUK lets you see the facts, so you can make the right choices. No bias, no spin, just address-level broadband data and accurate speed testing. We believe in net neutrality: your online activity is your business, not your broadband provider's.

Infrastructure

We believe infrastructure should never be playing catch-up.

That's why fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) broadband can’t come soon enough. And it’s also why we’ve made sure we have everything in place to provide you with transparent data - right when you need it.

Inclusion

We champion support for rural and vulnerable customers. We believe in digital inclusion and inclusivity.

This is only truly possible when everyone has reliable broadband. The Universal Service Obligation (USO) gives every person and business the right to request an affordable high-speed connection. Through our data and our speed tests, BroadbandUK is here to help you find yours.

Innovation

We push boundaries.

Our dataset collaborations with Ofcom and Openreach were a first for the industry. They allow us to provide address-level accuracy on the speeds available to you - not to your neighbour, not the postcode average.

The industry is constantly evolving - and we believe that getting the best outcome for the consumer should always drive our creativity.

We are ready for the future, now

Briefly journey with us to 19th-century America.

It was a time of invention and innovation. Bright minds could send off for patents free of postage charges. But post offices were springing up at different rates nationwide. The places with the most patenting activity? The places with the most post offices.

Infrastructure drives innovation. If you build for the future, you get there faster. That’s why we built our address-level comparison tool, using Ofcom’s API and data from Openreach. And it’s why we support fibre-to-the-premises (full fibre). Think of the possibilities opened up by connections of 1000 megabits or higher per second.

The government has pledged that every home in the United Kingdom will have fibre-to-the-premises broadband by 2025. It is a priority akin to railways in the 19th century, or motorways after that - one study estimates a £59 billion economic boost. As this infrastructure is rolled out, we will be with consumers and businesses every step of the way.

The Covid-19 pandemic starkly revealed just how much connectivity matters. A fast and reliable broadband connection is a connection to education. A connection to essential services. A connection to loved ones.

A connected future is one where no child is held back from doing their homework because of poor internet. BroadbandUK endeavours to support the journey towards this reality.

Full fibre for the whole UK by 2025

This is just the beginning

There are so many more possibilities beyond those we can currently imagine.

Netflix, Spotify - who would have even conceived of these before the broadband technology to support them existed?

The innovations of the future remain largely a mystery. But we can see silhouettes of what a truly connected society might mean. Blockchain technologies. Virtual reality. Autonomous vehicles. These nascent ideas have the potential to blossom in ways nobody has yet foreseen, supported by fast and reliable broadband for all.
