Cheapest unlimited broadband & line rental deals
Broadband usually requires a landline, and rather than getting your broadband and line rental from different companies, it's possible to get them as a 'bundle' for £15/month or less. All of the cheapest deals listed below also offer unlimited broadband, so you don’t have to worry about going over your download limit.

Until Wed 31 Dec, new EE customers going via this specific EE deal* link, entering the code EEHBB10, get the following on a one-year contract:
Compulsory line rental. You can pay £132 for the year upfront (you must opt for this at sign-up); equiv to £11/mth. If not, you can pay £15.75 monthly.
Unlimited broadband (avail to 95% of UK). You pay £2.50/mth, so £30 for the year. Note that after the first year the price is likely to rise, so check then if you can get cheaper elsewhere.
Call costs: Weekend calls to landlines are included. Others are slightly less than with BT.
You're sent a £100 Amazon voucher within 90 days. It's emailed automatically, provided you go via this EE deal* link and enter code EEHBB10 to get the voucher. To make sure your order is tracked properly - and that you get the voucher - you'll need to enable cookies on your browser (see more on how cookies work) and disable any adblocking software.
Please note it will take up to 90 days from installation (not from when you apply for the deal) for your voucher to arrive. If it has been more than 90 days and you have yet to receive your voucher please see below.
Need a new line? If you don't have a line (or for those with a cable one or, in a few cases, Sky customers), it's £30 - you'll be told before you commit.
Compulsory 'free' wi-fi router. Technically the router is 'free', but you have to get one and pay a one-off £6 to cover p&p.
How to sign up. This EE link* will take you to a new window, where you'll need to enter the code and your contact details (for the voucher to be sent). You'll then be automatically redirected to the EE website where you can sign up. Two confirmation emails will be sent - one about the voucher and one for the new contract.
If you experience any problems signing up, you can call 0800 079 5213.
Still in contract? Get up to £100 credit to cover switching costs. If you're in contract elsewhere and have to pay to switch, EE will give you up to £100 credit to cover your costs (excl call charges) - plus you'll get the voucher as part of the deal above.
You have to pay your old provider upfront, then claim through EE within 90 days of your new broadband going live. You'll need to upload your last bill from your old provider to the EE site - it'll then credit your account within 60 days.
Analysis - this is staggeringly cheap
We explain how the deal works above, but with broadband, different companies use different promotional formats, so we like to help you make a fair comparison.
The following analysis excludes call costs, as they depend on you as an individual, and the £30 new line installation fee for those on cable or who need a line.
If you pay line rental upfront. The total broadband, line rental and router delivery cost for the first year is £168, equivalent to £14/mth. Plus you get the £100 Amazon voucher. If you were going to spend that at Amazon anyway, factor it in and it's effectively £68 over the year, so equivalent to just £5.67/mth.
If you pay line rental monthly. The total broadband, line rental cost and router delivery cost for the first year is £225, equivalent to £18.75/mth. Plus you get the £100 Amazon voucher. If you were going to spend that at Amazon anyway, factor it in and it's effectively £125 over the year, equivalent to £10.42/mth.
IMPORTANT: With similar EE broadband deals we've run this year which have involved users being emailed a gift voucher within 90 days of installation, we've heard in a few cases (not many) from people upset that they haven’t got their voucher. In most cases this is because the 90 days haven’t elapsed, so please be patient.
However if you clicked through via MSE and haven't received your voucher after 90 days, email us at [email protected]
and we’ll make sure EE gives it to you.
Please make sure you include your full name, order date and connection date, the email address you signed up with and your order reference (this'll start with DKI, followed by several numbers - it's on the PDF EE sent you, or call EE customer services).
