Broadband Genie Home Broadband Awards
BT put in a reasonable performance in the 2015 Home Broadband Survey, even if it didn't quite win any awards.
BT was second for speed, comfortably the quickest of the ADSL and fibre providers, and came joint second for speed satisfaction. Overall 69% of BT users would recommend their ISP.
Who are BT?
It's the biggest fixed-line broadband provider by user numbers, its 'Home Hub' wireless router is well regarded, and it offers a good variety of products - everything from a straight broadband deal to offers including mobile phones, mobile broadband dongles and television services. And with the introduction of BT Sport in 2013 the firm is now competing directly with premium TV providers.
BT is rolling out 'super-fast' fibre broadband ('up to' 76Mb speeds) and continues to expand its ADSL2+ footprint, but is often criticised for not doing this fast enough (or without prompting from government). As you might expect from such a big company, some customers find the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing, but it does offer 24/7 customer services and technical support, with premium options also available.
BT claims to be the world's oldest communications company, dating back to the Electric Telegraph Company of 1846. British Telecom (as it was known) was formerly part of the Post Office - then a government department - but became a plc in 1984. It now has more than 7 million subscribers (including Plusnet, which it owns) to its BT Broadband products.
