Along with prices, Broadband Compare has many other categories for comparing the products - these include:
Compare broadband speed
Compare broadband data caps
Compare broadband sign up deals and different bonus broadband features
Compare broadband contract length
...all of these elements and qualities are bundled in to create the Broadband Compare rating which is our default sorting order on Broadband Compare.
