It often surprises people when they realise just how many different broadband providers there are on the market. While most of us can name a few of the industry giants off the top of our head, the sheer amount of variety really does extend far beyond what we may realise. Herein lies an issue when it comes to picking the right broadband provider.

More choice is certainly a good thing, as it pushes companies to provide the best service they possibly can, at the lowest price, in order to stay competitive. However, with so many providers and deals to wade through,  finding your ideal broadband deal can actually be a difficult and time-consuming task.

Often, this can mean people end up settling for less. But it doesn’t have to be this way. There is a Hoppier way of finding your ideal broadband provider.

Why choose SSE broadband?

SSE broadband may seem like a more left-field choice because the brand is better known as an energy company. One interesting selling point though is that they can offer discounts for customers who choose to use them for both their utilities and their broadband service, making them an interesting choice that many may not have considered.

That’s not their only benefit though. Their broadband packages offer unlimited downloads and no fixed-term contracts, meaning customers can enjoy greater flexibility to shop around for the best deals. Speaking of flexibility, SSE makes switching broadband provider very straightforward as well. They will contact your current supplier to organise the switch and will deliver a wireless router, which is quick to set up, meaning you don’t have to wait around all day for an engineer.

SSE customers can also enjoy peace of mind with a friendly UK based customer service. And if that wasn’t enough, SSE Rewards offer exclusive benefits, including presale event tickets up to 48 hours before general release, one-off prizes and competitions, as well as upgrades to SSE lounges for their customers.

Considerations when choosing an SSE broadband deal

When looking at broadband providers, there are always certain things to take into account. One of the most important things to note about SSE is that they do not offer TV services as part of their broadband deals – unlike Virgin Media, Sky or Now TV that do. So, if what you are looking for is SSE phone and broadband and nothing else, then this option will be suitable for you.

There are three main options to choose from, with the cheapest being Unlimited Broadband at 11Mbs. If you need faster speeds for smoother streaming and downloading, you can opt for SSE fibre broadband with Unlimited Fibre at 35Mbs and Unlimited Fibre Plus at 63Mbs (average estimate). All package prices include line rental, have the option to add calls for an additional fee, and costs are fixed for three years for energy customers or 12 months for non-energy customers.
