Comparing mobile broadband in Salisbury
There’s never been a better time to get connected on the move with a mobile broadband service from O2, EE, Three or Vodafone. 3G is widely available right across the UK and faster than ever, and new 4G networks are spreading quickly and capable of challenging home broadband for speed.
3G is the cheapest way to get mobile broadband, with some very affordable packages available. It can be quick too - a 3G connection can typically achieve 5-10Mb, or even faster if you have access to a Three Advanced 3G network, which is supported by many devices and commonly available throughout the country.
4G is the fastest mobile broadband service, capable of well over 20Mb. But at present coverage is more limited and prices can be higher, and keep in mind that you may need to purchase new hardware to use it.

Comparing home broadband in Salisbury
There are numerous options for home broadband, which gives you plenty of flexibility for finding the right deal, whether that’s the cheapest home broadband, fastest home broadband, or something in between.
The basic option is ADSL using the telephone lines. This has the best coverage so should be available to almost every premises, and speeds top out at around 17Mb, which is sufficient for many home users.
A faster option is fibre optic broadband using the BT Openreach or Virgin Media networks. This is being extended to cover many homes and is now something most of us should be able to enjoy at a very reasonable cost.
BT fibre has various speed options, with packages available at either 38Mb, 52Mb or 76Mb, and while prices are slightly higher compared to ADSL it still remains affordable.
The current speed champion is Virgin Media fibre (previously known as cable broadband) which presently provides speeds up to 200Mb. This can be more expensive than BT fibre depending on the package you choose, but Virgin is the only nationwide provider to offer broadband without a phone line, which could save £12-£17 per month on line rental costs if you don’t require a landline.
There are other choices for home broadband such as ultrafast gigabit fibre and satellite broadband, but these are either available only in very limited locations or best suited to more remote areas where other services aren’t an option, which should not be a problem in and around Salisbury.
