The Genie guide to comparing broadband in Coventry
All exchanges in central Coventry and surrounding areas offer the full range of modern broadband services. In addition to ADSL up to 17Mb there's also the option of superfast fibre using the Openreach and Virgin Media networks.
But you do need to check for yourself as not every home will have the same choices. To see what's available at your home, enter a postcode into the comparison table above. Once you've narrowed down the options by availability you can order the columns by contract length, speed, price (great for finding the cheapest tariffs) or data allowance to find the right package.
Alternatively you can use a comparison table that’s already tailored to your needs; we have pages dedicated to the likes of unlimited broadband and broadband and TV deals. And if you need more help choosing, you can either head to our broadband guides section or just give us a call on the number at the top of this page.
