Is Now Broadband any good?

Now broadband is popular for its flexible contract lengths – 1 month and 12 month. You can cancel the service at any time, without any commitment.

You can also add Now TV passes which are cheaper than Sky TV but allows you to watch similar content without signing up for a lengthy contract.

Cost-wise, it is also cheaper than BT or Virgin Media, though, the choices of speeds are limited with Now which nevertheless offers fibre packages using Sky’s network.

However, Now broadband does not include free extras like public WiFi or cloud storage while its TV packages come with less number of channels than Sky TV packs.
