This Christmas do you need a Broadband upgrade

10 December 2021 Broadband

Christmas Broadband is this year’s perfect early present!

The Pandemic put Christmas on hold last year. Well, not really, but you get what we mean though! There was a lot of apprehension in the air during a time when stress levels were already through the roof; an uneasiness that almost brought people to a standstill, unable to relax and enjoy festivities with friends and family.

That’s part of the beauty of Christmas, especially in the modern world when everyone is rushed off their feet all year long. It’s like one last push to get through the last month of the year. Then all that tension is relieved from Christmas Day right through to New Year’s Day. 

You’ve worked hard all year long and now is your time to spend quality time with loved ones. One of the best ways to do that is to sit together in front of the box, to catch up with people we’ve not seen for ages or enjoy some “me” time with our latest gadgets and techy goodies.

It’s time to get on board with treating yourself a little bit early this year and get an upgrade: cheap, fast, reliable and flexible broadband is only one click away.

Cheap Broadband this Christmas

Christmas is a time of big spending for a lot of us. Is it any wonder that the Christmas adverts start broadcasting earlier and earlier each year? Many put this down to the shops trying to make big sales earlier and earlier, when in fact it’s because our shopping habits have changed drastically over the years. There are more of us and we lead busier lifestyles and naturally, this has resulted in many people starting their Christmas shopping earlier. To get ahead of the crowd, the shops need to have the stock to meet the demand.  

Well, it’s the same for broadband companies. Believe it or not, there are still a lot of people out there looking for cheap broadband deals to upgrade this Christmas. Black Friday has been and gone and many will have missed out. So, they try to make up for it by hunting the best deals on offer for the lead up to Christmas.

This is part of the year when everyone starts to feel a little bit more generous. You’d be surprised at some of the broadband deals available. Generally, these will fall into a couple of categories, as they always tend to do all year round. ADSL is slower but more affordable, and fibre broadband is slightly more expensive than ADSL but a lot faster. Generally, at this time of year, the majority of customers are looking for good broadband and TV deals to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, NOW, Disney+ and much more.

Customers want to catch up on blockbusters they might’ve missed through the year, binge-watch the hottest shows on streaming giants and wrap themselves in warm nostalgia with Christmas TV viewing. 

Fast Broadband this Christmas

Your whole household will be using broadband more over the Christmas period and that’s why it’s important to get broadband that is fast and reliable. How else can you enjoy our Christmas top picks when your stream is stuck in a perpetual loop of buffering? Gamers will want to enjoy their new video games, such as Battlefield 2042, Pokemon, Halo Infinite or GTA 5 (arriving in March 2022), with the fastest speeds and minimal latencies. Let’s be honest, it’s not long after we’ve torn wrapping paper off new devices that we hook them up to the broadband.

That’s why this Christmas you’ll need to make sure that your broadband has superb bandwidth, especially for households of more than two people who use multiple devices at one time.

Bear in mind your local internet speed when picking fast broadband packages. Some areas lack the infrastructure and as such, residents cannot access the fastest broadband available, but you can check yours using our internet speed test here.

Reliable Broadband this Christmas

We recently published another blog post that summed up the best broadband provider. We found that EE scored top marks for the consistent reliability of their broadband service. Low reports of complete disconnections and the least drop in performance actually won them the most reliable ISP in 2020. However their TrustPilot score is not great for service, as neither is Virgin Media or Plus Net.

Not only is your household going to use the broadband more frequently over the Christmas period, but millions of households up and down the country will be too. You want to make sure that you’ve gone with a broadband provider that has a reliable and robust service, although technological improvements are certainly still paving the way for the most reliable broadband services to ever exist.

Broadband Freedom has different types of broadband you can choose from, all reliable and provide the average download speed easily.  When looking to upgrade and choosing a broadband package, to ensure it is reliable, find the right one that meets your needs.
