Home broadband deals in Salford
Residents of Salford have access to an extensive range of home broadband packages.
As well as basic ADSL broadband, Blackfriars, Eccles, Irlam and Walkden are also future-proofed with support for ‘full fibre’ FTTP services.
Full Fibre broadband is also known as ‘Fibre To The Premises’, ‘Fibre To The Home’. This is often shortened to FTTP or FTTH. They’re all the same thing!
Instead of copper telephone wire making up the final part of the journey from that green cabinet on the street, fibre optic cables are installed right up to your home.
It’s amazing the difference in speed this small data journey can have. With full-fibre broadband you can expect to receive speeds of 1Gb+.
The downside is full-fibre is only available to a small percentage of homes in the UK, and it’s taking a good while to get everyone up to speed.
ADSL is the best option if you’re looking for the cheapest home broadband as both setup and running costs are low. Although we describe it as 'basic', it still offers enough performance to cope with downloading files, online gaming and streaming video, as well as the usual web browsing and email. Most ADSL deals are usually unlimited, meaning you won't have your data capped.
Our broadband deals also include triple-play and quad-play bundles where you can get broadband, phone, TV and mobile all in one. This can be a good way to save money and makes bill paying convenient. If you do just want broadband only, we have plenty of those deals too.. If you're hunting for a real bargain, look for deals with exclusive vouchers or even free setup - every saving can count!
