Home broadband deals in Fife
There are three main types of fixed-line home broadband service in the UK, all of which are available in the Fife area.
ADSL broadband deals in Fife
ADSL is the standard home broadband service and is available to most of the population. Speeds will average 10-11Mb, depending on whether your exchange has been upgraded to ADSL2+, which is the case for almost everyone.
Fibre optic broadband deals in Fife
Fibre optic broadband using the Openreach (BT) network to deliver an average speed of around 65Mb, 50Mb, 65Mb or 75Mb, and is widely available in Fife. And you should usually get very close to the quoted rates as this is a more reliable connection than ADSL.
Both ADSL and fibre deals are available, mostly on unlimited packages, from a wide number of providers such as Plusnet, EE, TalkTalk, BT and Sky so there's plenty of competition, which means lots of bargains!
Virgin Media broadband deals in Fife
There’s also Virgin Media fibre. This is the quickest mass-market broadband with a top speed of more than 1Gb in some areas, but it does not have the reach of either BT fibre or ADSL. Additionally as Virgin Media is the only 'cable' provider, there’s not the same choice of prices or packages.
Fibre optic is best suited to homes with multiple users or for anyone who needs the extra speed, while ADSL is a very good budget option. Whichever you choose, you’ll find a wide variety of bundles including premium TV, telephone services, broadband only offers and mobile SIMs.

Comparing mobile broadband in Fife
In the Fife area, there’s a good level of 4G mobile broadband coverage, with most towns and villages having access to a decent signal.
However, keep in mind that 4G coverage can be somewhat limited, especially in some rural areas. It's worth confirming availability in your area before buying. When 4G isn't available, you'll automatically switch to 3G. 5G is an option in more built-up areas in Fife, with the widest network coverage coming from EE.
