    Just curious as seeing what people are paying for what. Would appreciate it if people contribute - must include line rental (if applicable) and the cost of broadband only. Not interested in TV and phone packages. Also interested in what speeds you get dl/ul

    I am on Plusnet 30.99/month FTTC 65/20 profile getting 65/15. I am about 150m from the cabinet.

    TalkTalk - 18months - Faster Fibre and line rental - £21.95 plus a £105 gift card - effectively £16.11 per month. Speeds are only 20/1 due to distance from exchange + cabinet but the maximum package deal would be 38/9.5 on Faster Fibre if I was luckier with distance.

    Vodafone 80/20 FTTC, £23 a month. I think there was £80 cashback through TCB as well. I'm pretty close to the cabinet so get around 75/18.

    Can't fault Voda at all, I was a bit skeptical at first but it's been consistently quicker than my previous Plusnet connection for which I paid £30/month. That was more like 65/16.

    Spending way too much at the moment :( having moved out in the middle of nowhere - £22/m for 30/6 FTTC then VM and VF unlimited 4G connections that get around 30/10 each that are slightly under £30/m each. First world problems and all but it is quite a struggle coming from having 2x 80/20 connections. I'm lucky to have this - most of the houses around us get like 3Mbit ADSL.

    Vodafone business - 80/20 - £18.99/month plus vat = £22.80 on a 24 month contract but the first 6 months are free, so effectively £17.10/month.
    Virgin a Business - Voom350 - £27+VAT per month = £32.40 rolling monthly contract
    BT fibre 900/110 - 49.99/month on 24 month contract (special offer when they leafletted the street)
    Daisy 2048/2048 leased line - 680+VAT/month rolling contract (Currently under review with the lovely folks in Nelson)

    So a bit of a mixed bag really.

    €41 monthly for a rather variable 12Mb DL/2Mb UL from LGTEL.

    WIMAX link from nearby water tower.

    Fibre broadband was due this year, but the Wuhan Flu put paid to that.

    £28 a month for 80/20 from Sky. Can’t fault Sky but I wish they’d hurry up with their Ultrafast offerings.

    Same i was a bit skeptical of going with Vodafone, but they're lines been reasonably stable. I get the odd drop here and there, but i'm yet to find an ISP that doesn't.

    We pay £27.99 for 80/20 FTTC. Looking at my average (5 min avg) speeds for the last 30 days i'm at 71/18 with a max of 74/19.

    Officially £60.64/m for 230/35 g.fast with BT, but between the compensation and cash back it’s cost me nothing for the last 18 months (I actually made money technically). About to switch to Sky on 160/30 for £27/m, though technically that’s SOGEA which I was paying BT £17ish for the faster profile previously (pre-complaint).

    £55 - 900Mb/120Mb with BT...although going to contact them about a possible downgrade as 900MB is totally not needed, be happy with 150Mb. Just got the fastest because I could.
