 Basic Internet Broadband for the Elderly, Seniors and Retired People


Basic Internet Broadband for the Elderly, Seniors and Retired People

Basic broadband for the elderly with no contract - We now offer 'No contract broadband' service for the elderly, and retired people, giving the flexibility to terminate the service the same day should it become necessary if no longer needed, have moved into a care home or because circumstances have changed.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic was declared we have been receiving a high number of calls from our customers asking if we can provide short term broadband services for people who are in self isolation, and would like to keep in contact with their friends and family outside.

It has been a challenge, but we have managed come up with a no contract broadband service that has No contract, No disconnection or termination fees, giving the flexibility to terminate the service the same day should it become necessary.

All too often we talk to people that have sadly lost partners, moved into a care home or can no longer use or need the internet service, and are left with having to pay for the broadband they no longer use due to being tied in to a long costly contract.


 About Broadband Prices - Be aware before signing on the dotted line.

Low Cost Broadband Headline Prices

Low Cost Broadband Headline Prices - Almost everyone seems to be offering extremely attractive broadband packages these days. However, It's very important to look at the detail as you could be paying more overall than you think.

Almost all low broadband prices shown will include the telephone line rental, BUT will not include a call plan, you will need to add this to your order. This can significantly increase the monthly cost. If you decide not to have a call plan, be prepared to pay remarkably high calls cost and connection charges.

FREE Braodband Routers - Nothing is free!, Its' included, or on loan.The router cost is added to the rental and made back over the long term contract you have. Some providers will ask you to return the router at the end of your contract. BT will make a charge of up to £50.00 for the router if not sent back within 60 days of the contract ending.

( BT Consumer Price Guide - Effective from 1st September 2020 - "When you end the BT Broadband service you must return the BT Hub that was loaned to you, within 60 days from the date the service is terminated. If you fail to do this then you’ll have to pay £43 for a Hub 4, £43 for a Smart Hub or £50 for a Smart Hub 2" )


Broadband and Line Fixed Price Deals

Broadband and Line Fixed Price Deals - Providers seem to be shouting about this. But here you need to be incredibly careful and check the small print. As in most all cases this is a play on words, and the fixed price will only apply to the broadband part of your total monthly rental. This means that the provider can increase your line rental, calls/plans and other services, such as add-ons when they like.

Of course, they will need to give you notice before they do this, but this it will mean you will have 30 days to find another provider, which will probably be doing the same sort of thing, so you could find yourself back were you started.


Broadband 18 and 12 month Brodband Deals

Broadband 24, 18 and 12 Month Deals - This should set alarm bells off, and you need probably need to do some maths, as well look ahead. There are some BIG change coming in the cost of broadband in the next few months.

One of the main reason providers lock you into a long contract is to get back the cost for connecting the service, as we all must pay a fee to BT to activate your broadband connection. This cost is made back indirectly by the provider over the term of your contract, plus the cost of the included router. 

Therefore, you will see 24 and 18-month contract with low monthly rental cost. However, this will significantly increase from month 13, as this pays for any lost leaders, like free shopping vouchers, free broadband activation, routers and such like. 

However, there are a few other things we recommend taking into consideration when thinking of taking a long-term contract.

If the broadband service is for an elderly or retired person, you should bear in mind that you will not be able to switch or terminate the service for the duration of the contract without paying a hefty fee.

All too often we talk to people that have sadly lost partners, moved into a care home or can no longer use or need the internet service, and are left with having to pay for the broadband they no longer use due to being tied in to a long costly contract.

You may not also be aware, but BT Openreach is closing the Copper Wire Telephone Network for every home and business premises across the UK by the year 2025, when all copper-based lines will stop working.

Considering this, there will be a significant reduction in broadband cost, and a new range of broadband plans and speeds for internet base telephone services, and or with broadband. we expect to see this start within the next 2/4 month's time.

So, considering this, does it make sense to lock yourself in to a long-term broadband contract? It will for the provider, as their cost will go down, and yours will stay the same for the length of the contract!

ADSL2+ broadband speed

*ADSL2+ broadband speed is described as 'average download speed of 10Mb' and 'average upload speed of 0.8Mb' as it is based on speed available to at least 50% of customers at peak time (8 - 10pm).

Your actual speed will be dependent on your location, phone line, home wiring, WiFi connection and time of day. We will check your speed and product/s available at your location before you make any decision.


 Fibre Broadband with contract - NO disconnection fees - NO catches 

Why Fibre Broadband? - If you are looking to use any video chat service, it's recommended that the broadband service has a similarly fast upload speed, since you’re not just receiving video data during a chat but also sending the same amount of data in return.

If you have high download but poor upload speed, the person you are talking to may have difficulty hearing or seeing your side of the chat.

So we have put together a basic fibre broadband service that will meet the requirements needed for these types of services, and at the lowest possible price, on a 30-day rolling contract.

*Broadband services and speeds are dependent on the distance from your home to the exchange or cabinet. External factors such as internet congestion and home wiring can affect speed. Wi-Fi speeds vary by device and home entertainment. Thus speeds are measured up to the router.

Under the Code we aim to make sure you're aware of the estimated broadband speed you should receive and have the opportunity to end your contract without paying an early termination charge under our "No contract, No commitment" terms, if you don't receive your Minimum Guaranteed Speed. **Changing from the Anytime rental to lower call rental plan will increase the FTTC broadband monthly cost to £14.99 per inc VAT. Likewise, moving from a lower line rental to the Anytime rental will lower the monthly FTTC broadband cost down to £9.99 inc VAT per month.
