Comparing mobile broadband in Rotherham
If you’re anywhere in Rotherham and its surrounds then both Vodafone and O2 offer excellent 4G network coverage both indoors and out. Three has the town centre itself covered, although indoor coverage drops off towards the south and south-west.
EE describes their 4G as ‘good outdoor, variable indoor’ so if you need 4G be sure to confirm signal strength in your location. They also offer Double Speed 4GEE in Rotherham if you have a compatible device and contract.
4G is great if you're looking for a high speed portable connection and even as an alternative to fixed line home internet. 3G too is also capable of very good performance, and is supported by older hardware. Remember that when a 4G connection is not available it will automatically fall back on 3G when possible.

Comparing home broadband in Rotherham
Rotherham residents have a few options for home broadband but you will need to make use of our postcode check to see what's on offer at your location as coverage does vary.
BT’s fibre optic network is available in many areas of the town. This provides up to 76Mb and is available not just from BT but other providers such as Sky, TalkTalk and Plusnet so there are always lots of great deals and money saving special offers.
Another choice for high speed internet is Virgin Media. Their network can provide higher speeds than BT, and they can deliver broadband without a phone line as well as phone and TV bundles. But Virgin's network is not available to every home.
If neither of those options is available to you then you’ll have to access home broadband through an ADSL connection. Although slower it can also be very cheap and there are a huge variety of ISPs offering ADSL connections.
A great way to save money is to combine services into one package, taking your TV, phone and home broadband from a single provider. There are many choices for this in the Rotherham area including low cost offerings from TalkTalk, EE and BT or premium packages from Sky and Virgin Media.
