Across its three broadband packages, you won't find any ultrafast or gigabit internet options, but what it does have is perfect for most small to medium-sized households looking for affordability.

All the available broadband deals from NOW Broadband require you to have a phone line. Which you can have a landline if you want and there are three call packages you can choose from:

Pay as you use: This costs nothing upfront but as the name suggests, you are paying per phone call you make. Line rental comes included so if you will almost never end up making calls, this is the option to choose. 

Evenings and weekends: Both this package and the anytime calls add monthly costs to your plan. This is the cheaper option so best for those who will have the occasional catch-up call on the weekend or in the evening. 

Anytime calls: This package adds a pretty decent cost to your plan so will only be worthwhile if you do make a lot of calls. You do get unlimited calls to UK landlines and mobile phones and any international call is discounted.
