Fibre broadband isn't the rarity it once was. With coverage now available to over 90 per cent of UK premises, it's probably available at your home or studio. And super-fast fibre is no longer a luxury. The prices of fibre broadband deals have fallen dramatically over the last few years and a speedier connection now only costs a few pounds more a month than slower ADSL.
That's a small price to pay for the extra productivity that fibre broadband affords you. There are rapid downloads and uploads, stutter-free video calling and, of course, lightning quick internet browsing – all without the desk-thumping frustration caused by old-fashioned broadband connections.
Our easy-to-work, up to the minute price comparison below will let you quickly see what the best fibre broadband deals in the UK today are. And below that we've answered some commonly asked questions about fibre, what speeds you really need and more.

Do I need a fibre broadband deal?
