All you need to know about NOW Broadband

NOW Broadband is a subsidiary of Sky. They started life in 2012 as a TV streaming service, similar to Netflix. In 2016 they launched their broadband service offering the UK's first contract free broadband.

Let's take a look in more detail at what NOW Broadband has to offer.

NOW Broadband packages

NOW Broadband has three packages:

Brilliant Broadband - Standard ADSL broadband with average download speeds of 11Mb and upload speeds of 1.3Mb. With this speed you should easily be able to send emails, browse the internet and stream in SD.

Fab Fibre - Fibre broadband with average download speeds of 36Mb and upload speeds of 10Mb. This package is best suited to gamers and frequent HD streamers.

Super Fibre - The top fibre package with average download speeds of 63Mb and upload speeds of 19Mb. Perfect for larger homes with multiple devices streaming or gaming at the same time.

All broadband packages are available on a standard 12 month contract, or a rolling monthly contract. If you go for the monthly option then there is a higher set up cost, currently around £60. So you will need to factor this in when deciding which is best for your needs.

NOW Broadband Home Phone

Pay as you go calls are included with NOW Broadband packages. If you need more, then you can upgrade to either Evening and Weekend calls or Anytime calls.

Why choose NOW Broadband?

Unlimited downloads with no traffic management

All NOW Broadband's packages are totally unlimited and have no traffic management. So you will not be slowed down at busy times.

No contract option

The no contract option is perfect for those who only need broadband for a short time, such as students on those on shorter tenancies.

Option to add a call package

NOW Broadband packages include line rental and pay as you go calls. You have the option to add a call package if you choose.

There is a set up fee, currently £60, for those who choose the monthly contract option.

Line rental required

Line rental is included in all NOW Broadband packages. There is no option to buy without a phone line.

Frequently asked questions

How much does NOW Broadband cost?

How much you spend depends on the package you choose. NOW broadband packages start from £24 per month. View all the latest NOW Broadband deals.

Can you get NOW Broadband and NOW TV together?

Yes, you can combine a NOW Broadband package with a choice of NOW TV Memberships.

How fast is NOW Broadband?

NOW Broadband offers three different average download speeds. Standard broadband offers average speeds of 11Mb, and the two fibre packages offer averages of 36Mb and 63Mb.

Can I get NOW Broadband without a landline?

Unfortunately you need a landline to get NOW broadband. This is because they use the Openreach network to deliver broadband to your property, and this requires an active phone line.

Does Sky own NOW Broadband?

Yes, Sky do own NOW Broadband and NOW TV. NOW Broadband is aimed at the budget side of the market with short contract options available, unlike Skys standard 18 month contracts.

How long are NOW Broadband contracts?

NOW Broadband customers can choose from either a 12 month or 30 day contract. The price is usually the same for both contract lengths, though you can expect to pay a higher set up cost for the 30 day contract. This is still a great option for anyone who only needs the internet for a short period, or isn’t in a position to commit to a full contract.

If your current provider is Virgin Media then you will need to let them know that you're leaving and it's up to you to coordinate the end of one contract and the start of another.

If you're choosing a broadband package and are currently with another provider that uses the Openreach network, then they will do the contacting on your behalf.
