BT's basic broadband tariffs
There are three basic BT broadband tariffs you can choose from, before you start adding call plans and TV packages.
BT Unlimited Broadband - The cheapest BT Broadband deal is, naturally, the company's slowest. You get standard ADSL speeds of up to 17Mb, which equates to a maximum download speed of around 2MB per second. Bearing in mind that actual speeds are almost always lower than the quoted rate, that can mean cripplingly low speeds.
BT Unlimited Infinity - BT's entry-level fibre broadband deal is one of the fastest offered by any internet provider. With a quoted connection of up to 52Mb, the difference you'll notice over standard broadband will be palpable (and a must if you have lots of people using the internet at once). But be aware that fibre isn't available everywhere, pop your postcode where asked below to see if you can get it.
BT Unlimited Infinity 2 - Without upping things to Ultrafast, Infinity 2 is the fastest internet BT offers. Up to 76Mb of the stuff - so potential downloads of an incredible 9.5MB per second. If you're a 4K TV fan or live with loads of people all using the web at once, then the extra speed may just be worth the money.

WHAT IS A BT REWARD CARD?
Simply a pre-paid credit card you can use anywhere that accepts Mastercard, the BT Reward Card is chip and pin instead of contactless. You shouldn't be stuck for choice in terms of places to use it, as around a million retailers and restaurants around the world accept it. Just remember to claim your Reward Card within three months, otherwise you may lose out on the money.
WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING THE BEST BT BROADBAND DEAL
Do you need a broadband AND TV deal, or just the one? What about a phone package?
Whatever BT Broadband deal you go for, line rental is included in the price. You'll also get unlimited weekend calls, with the opportunity to add further call plans such as international numbers.
BT's deals range from the Starter plan, which is basically your usual Freeview channels, all the way up to Total Entertainment. The latter is perfect if you're often streaming 4K films and television as BT throws in its YouView+ Ultra HD box. Allowing you to record up to 600 hours of video, which is handy considering the 140+ TV channels you get access to.
Fancy BT Sport as well? Ordinarily, you have to add an extra £3.50 per month to get it. But BT often has promotions running whereby it will throw in free access for some or all of your broadband contract.
