On the Superfast Fibre Broadband deals, Direct Save have slashed the contract term from 18 months to just 12 months. With prices from £22.95 a month, this is one of the cheapest deals out there for superfast fibre right now.

For a real budget option, the basic broadband offer will ensure a usable connection for under £17 a month.

Their no contract offer makes them a great choice for anyone not ready to commit to a 12 month contract, such as home movers or students. However, as is the case with most ISPs, the offers for a 12 month contract are much better value.

All contracts come with a free wireless router, free set up and no line rental to pay.

For an additional fee, users signing up to any of these deals can add on a variety of calling plans for telephone use as well. Evening and weekend calls costs £3.95 a month, over 50p cheaper than BT, and free anytime costs just £8.75.
