Finds the cheapest standard or superfast broadband WHERE YOU LIVE

Broadband costs soar for those not in providers' 'standard network areas'. New tool:
We've created a Cheap Broadband Finder: put a postcode in and it tells you which top
deals are available to you. These include ...

3mths free on cheapest deal: 80% of the UK can get Plusnet Value* for £6.49/mth +
£25 fee and you get 3 months free via Broadband Choices (link goes there). All in,
it's an avg £6.95 over the year's contract, with a 10GB monthly download limit.
Existing O2* mobile customers can get 20GB downloads for an avg. £6.13/mth, using a
similar 3mths free promo.

Unlimited downloads £14/mth: For heavier users, the Be Value* package is £14.08
all-in and, again, 80% of the UK can get it. Existing O2* mobile customers can get
similar for £9.19/mth (inc 3mths free) and existing Orange* mobile customers for
£10/mth plus a free £20 Amazon voucher.

Superfast £23/mth: For up to 40Mbps, about 20% of the UK can get BT Infinity* Option
1, which is £20/mth + £50 connection with a 40GB usage cap (£22.77/mth avg). For
unlimited downloads, Option 2 is £25.60/mth all-in.
