Line rental is the fee you pay to your internet service provider to allow you to use the broadband cable.
This is the cost of a broadband package for the entire year, regardless of short-lived introductory offers - when you compare through Gocompare.com we'll list these prices next to your options.
Broadband bundles are when other services - such as telephone and digital TV - are tied in with your broadband connection for one monthly fee. It's possible that this will be a more convenient and cost-effective option than buying the services individually.
Unlimited broadband means being able to use the internet as much as you like with no restrictions or added charges... but when you choose this option take care. Most policies carry certain restrictions and you may need a product known as 'truly unlimited' broadband.
This is likely to be one of the major factors you consider when choosing a package - read our article on broadband speed before making your decision. Also take a look at our tips for boosting broadband speed.
