Affordable broadband and mobile connectivity

A reliable internet connection has in many ways become as vital a household utility as other utilities, but you may be finding the costs of staying online have risen as sharply as gas or electricity. Most of the big-name broadband providers can offer social tariffs for Westminster residents and this handy comparison chart shows what’s on offer and whether you might be eligible.

You may also want to look into Social tariffs – cheaper broadband and phone packages for people claiming Universal Credit, Pension Credit and some other benefits. Some providers call them ‘essential’ or ‘basic’ broadband. They’re delivered in the same way as normal packages, just at a lower price.

To try and help keep residents connected through this crisis, the council has partnered with organisations to develop free connectivity offers. We are also offering support to help residents get on line. More information can be found at the Digital Skills Hub or by contacting [email protected]. You can also complete our form.
