What is unlimited broadband?
Any communication with the Internet, sending information or receiving it (including viewing anything online, documents included), uses data. A text email uses a little, an HD movie streamed directly from the Internet uses a lot. Linked HD gaming with in-play communication uses even more.
Your provider will keep track of how much data flows back and forth from your connection, and if you have any kind of limit or restriction, will limit your system’s performance (or charge you extra) once you use up the initial amount. To make sure you have truly unlimited data, ask specifically if there are every any speed restrictions or extra fees of any kind. If you are told there are not, ask to see where that is specified in the contract.
It may seem a bit awkward to do this, but you are signing a contract, so it is just good practice to make sure you understand it.
Find the cheapest unlimited broadband deals
If your house generates a significant level of broadband use – either a few heavy users or more than three moderate users – then you may run into the problem of exceeding your broadband data usage ceiling. This can happen even with “unlimited” broadband, as many of these revert to a much slower speed once a certain amount of data has been used. They aren’t limiting the amount you use, but once you hit that limit, the speed at which you can use is can drop significantly, making the service impractical.
When you generate a list of potential providers on our site, organize them according to speed, and then make sure there are no speed restrictions after certain amounts of data is used. If you are a moderate user, and aren’t sharing with others, you can get away with the cheapest options, but if you are part of a heavy-using household, but the better package and split the bill.
