Universal Credit broadband for low income families

Access to the internet has become an essential utility for many, with security, speed and cost being primary considerations. Fasterbroadband offer a free broadband resource service designed to help people save money and improve their internet connection.

Millions of households could save £200 a year by switching to a social broadband tariff. It seems to be 'The industry's best-kept secret'. Astonishingly, out of the 4.3 million households on Universal Credit, less than 6% have switched to a 'social broadband tariff.’

Discounts are available for those receiving the following benefits:

  • Universal Credit
  • Pension Credit
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job Seeker's Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-based Employment & Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)Attendance Allowance - Care Leavers support

If you qualify, you might be eligible to switch to a social broadband tariff. Alternatively, you can use the postcode availability checker to find alternative low-cost broadband provider in Luton.
