I have BT infinity at home and love the amazing speeds I get, so if you are in an area capable of receiving it, I have no problem recommending BT fibre optic services. I have had my broadband from other suppliers and just haven't found the service and reliability to be as good. I also love that I have unlimited downloads, my husband and step-son are both gamers online and I dabble in it myself, as well as using a number of streaming services for films and music so we get through a fair amount of data.
Other services such as access to 12 million public BT Wifi hotspots, access to BT sports and the BT smart talk app all make these packages perfect for student houses, splitting the costs amongst your friends also makes it even more affordable and great value for money.
Being a student is hard enough financially so making savings like this is a huge bonus and not being tied into and annual contract is great.
