Help. Responsible for sorting broadband again for the first time in 10 years. Confidently checked the cheapest providers according to MSE , only to be told my area only offered full fibre broadband. So ££ was more than I expected £36 from BT was mentioned. I just need very basic broadband for Internet browsing and as cheap as possible. (I'm not eligible for social tariffs.) Would appreciate some guidance. Thank you

How many of you in the household?
If only 1 or 2 person, getting your own mobile phone with unlimited data could be cheaper.
1. Are you in an Openreach FTTP (Full Fibre) area?
2. Are you prioritising lowest possible price, or shorter contracts? Contracts can vary between 30 days to 12 months to 18 months to 24 months.
3. Are you prioritising fixed pricing?
4. You could also explore the alternative of an Unlimited Data 4G mobile broadband solution (using a 4G hotspot from one of the mobile network providers) if there is a good 4G signal at the property.
You may well be in such a situation.
Then you can go with any of these providers
