With uni starting next month tons of people are looking for decent student broadband deals.

Here are a few of the best student deals around at the moment, plus the ratings from customers.

Personally, I would pay a tiny bit more to get fast internet and decent reliability - especially in a house of 4+ people who could be watching Netflix at the same time.

I've highlighted the best deals imo.

It's also worth noting that if you're moving into a house and it already has a hub installed, left there by the previous tenants, any one-off installation fee in the deal will not need to be paid if it's from the same provider.

These really aren't good deals these days.

Vodafone are giving some prices which kill these quotes and the quotes these days.

This thread should link the uswitch broadband comparison website (I've got a feeling this is an paid thread though):
