The Post Office started offering broadband services back in 2007, and make for a competitive alternative to the big name providers. There are only a few packages to choose from, with home calls included and different download caps available.
Along with the range of services the Post Office provides in banking, sending mail and travel money, they also offer a variety of fantastic deals on broadband managing to provide wonderfully slick fibre and incredibly efficient ADSL without having to compromise on the price.
The Post Office’s three broadband packages are some of the cheapest in the UK offering a very smooth, reliable connection for a premium price.
Like many of its major competitors, they offer an entry-level ADSL broadband package and two superfast fibre broadband packages all with completely unlimited usage.
The Unlimited Broadband ADSL package is capable of reaching average speeds of 10Mbps and doesn’t require you to pay any upfront fees. It’s great for smaller households and light to medium internet users who’re looking to enjoy streaming, emailing, banking and using social media.
The 35Mbps and 63Mbps Unlimited Fibre and Unlimited Fibre Plus services do come with an upfront fee, but provide significantly higher average speeds which can support a far greater volume of online activity including HD streaming to multiple devices, online gaming and downloading lots of music.
All of the Post Office’s broadband customers will receive completely free access to the high-quality content management tool SafeGuard which is a very easy-to-use way of keeping your family safe online.
The Kids Guard feature prevents your children from viewing unsuitable content while Homework Guard blocks access to all of the popular social media and gaming sites during the hours you set to keep them focused on what’s important.
Phishing and malware-infected sites are also immediately recognised and blocked thanks to the Virus Guard before they’ve got an opportunity to corrupt your device.
Free Unlimited Weekend calls to UK landlines and a Post Office branded wi-fi router are included with all of these broadband services, but what kind of router you’ll receive depend on exactly which tier of package you’ve gone for.
If you’d like a bit more freedom and flexibility with your calls, the Post Office allows you to customise your package with a few excellent money-saving additions like Anytime Calls, Mobile Saver and International Saver for a small extra monthly fee.
The fastest Post Office package offers up to 63Mbps on average, whilst the second-tier fibre package offers an average of 35Mbps. Customers choosing standard broadband get an average of up to 10Mbps.
There are three broadband packages available from Post Office: two fibre and one ADSL. The fibre ones offer much faster broadband download speeds, and all three include unlimited downloads, subject to a fair usage policy.
The fifth generation of mobile internet offers lightning-fast speeds and incredibly low latency.
