Monthly cost

M125 Fibre Broadband is currently our most affordable student broadband deal and best on
price. But whatever speed you need, see if you can get it cheaper on the longer contract -
our 12-month student broadband deals will usually have a lower monthly cost than the 30-
day options.


Gig1 student broadband deals are our fastest and best for speed, averaging uploads of
104Mbps and downloads of 1,130Mbps. The more housemates you split the cost with, the more affordable our faster speeds
will feel, so you’d be surprised how fast you can really go within your personal budget.


Rolling 30-day deals could be our best student broadband deals for temporary housing.
These are easy for you to end at any time with no cancellation fees, you simply keep it
rolling for as long as you need, even just for part of a semester. Our longer, 12-month
student broadband deals are also much more flexible than the standard 18-month options.

connections that you can rely on. For extra peace of mind, you can also add the WiFi
guarantee with WiFi Max to any of our student broadband deals and get promised speeds in
every room, or bill credit back.

Do I have to be a student to get flexible contract broadband?

Our student broadband deals are only available to you if you have a university ‘’ email address. But, don’t fret! Rolling contract broadband is a different option that’s open to all, not just students. These are flexible, 30-day deals that give you the freedom to cancel with just 30 days’ notice and you won’t pay an early disconnection fee.

How far in advance should I buy student broadband?

Our exclusive student discount (up to £75 bill credit) expires on 31st August so make sure you buy before then.

You can buy now and choose an installation date of your choice, up to 3 months in advance. Therefore we recommend buying your wifi as soon as you can to make sure you secure our student discount and get your preferred installation date. September is a very busy time with most students moving back during this period. By buying in advance it gives you a better chance to get the installation date you want so it can be up and running for when you move in.
