Is a 12-month contract right for me?

Nowadays, most contracts are usually 18 or 24 months, but a 12-month contract can offer more flexibility than a 2 year contract. With a shorter contract, you have the option to switch more frequently if your needs or circumstances change. This can be beneficial if you are unsure about your future plans, or if you anticipate needing to move house.

A 12-month deal may not be suitable for everyone. If you need even more flexibility or are unsure about your long-term plans, a no-contract plan may be a better option.

What are the pros and cons of 12-month contracts?

There are some advantages to choosing a shorter contract, such as flexibility and potentially lower costs. With a 12-month contract, you have the option to switch to a different provider just after a year, which means you won't be tied down to a service for an extended period of time. This is also handy for renters who are on a one-year property lease. This can be beneficial if you're unsure about the quality of the broadband or have received poor service from the provider. 

However, there are some potential downsides to choosing a 12-month contract. Some providers may require you to pay an upfront fee when signing up. Also, providers tend to do annual price increases, and if you sign up to a 12-month contract, it's likely you'll experience at least one price rise during your contract. Some of the cheapest deals we see tend to be 18-month or 24-month deals, so if you opt for a shorter term, you could also end up paying more over the contract than had you opted for a longer deal.

Although 12-month contracts give greater flexibility, if your needs or circumstances do change within the 12-month contract, it's likely you'll still be charged an early termination fee, which can be costly.

Which providers offer 12-month broadband deals?

There are a few providers that still offer 12-month broadband deals. These include:

  • Community Fibre
  • G.Network
  • Hyperoptic
  • Now Broadband
  • Onestream
  • Plusnet

What other contract lengths are available?

Nowadays, most contracts are 18-months or 24-months, which means sticking with your provider for longer. 

An alternative is a one-month rolling contract. These don't tie you down, which means you're free to leave at any time. However, these tend to have high upfront costs or cost more each month, so usually work out more expensive. Though, it's a great option if you just want broadband for a short period.

Our top need-to-knows

1

Who we do and don't compare

This tool looks at 18 of the biggest providers, including the giants of BT, Sky and Virgin. Plus special deals we've found or blagged that we think are top picks. Yet there are also many small providers we can't list - which occasionally have cheap deals - so it's always worth checking direct with any local provider you know of. Let us know if you find a top deal we've missed and see which providers this tool covers.

2

Switching can save you £100s

Many get a cheap promo deal for broadband, line rent and/or TV, and stick with it when it ends, usually paying £100s/year more than they started with. Don't let it be you - compare now and see if you could save

3

Fast advertised speeds don't mean faster broadband

Providers only have to advertise the average speed received by at least 50% of customers between 8pm and 10pm. Your actual speed can depend on a host of factors - see the full checklist of tips in Broadband Speed Boosting.

4

Consider your need for speed

If it's just you and the dog, you're likely to be fine with standard speeds averaging around 11Mb. If you share a house, or you use the web for movie downloads, streaming or gaming, you may want to opt for faster speeds in excess of 30Mb.

5

Beware of mid-contract switching costs

Usually you'll pay for the rest of the contract plus termination fees. If your provider increases prices mid-contract and didn't warn you before you signed up, you can switch penalty-free within 30 days of notification of the price hike.
