About Us

Our mission

Our mission at Broadband Savvy is to help you get the most you possibly can from your home broadband connection.

We aim to cut through the jargon, and provide clear, practical advice to help you improve your digital connectivity.

In the digital age, having fast, reliable, reasonably-priced broadband isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity.

We’re not a comparison site.

There’s more to broadband than just comparing different deals at different prices.

While we do review broadband packages, we also aim to explain how you can get the best speeds you possibly can from your current provider. We want to equip consumers to get the right deal for their household, given their internet usage – rather than having to guess how much speed they need.

We also offer personalised advice and assistance. Feel free to contact us if you need help getting online or troubleshooting internet issues.

Our work

On our website, we have a variety of different types of content designed to help British households improve their digital connectivity.

  • We create interactive tools, such as our internet speed needs calculator and broadband speed availability checker.
  • We publish guides explaining how to solve common broadband problems, such as poor Wi-Fi signal.
  • We write articles that explain different broadband concepts, such as what latency means, to help people understand different digital connectivity topics.
  • We publish guides to help people get better broadband connectivity at home, such as by improving their download and upload speeds.
  • We write reviews of different broadband providers, based on our experience with them, and their value for money, among other factors.
  • We publish reviews of different Wi-Fi routers, dongles, and mobile broadband devices, helping British people make better broadband buying decisions.

As well as writing articles on our website, we also publish a range of different videos on these topics on our YouTube channel.

Our team has helped contribute to broadband-related articles in the Guardian, Yahoo UK, and other leading media publications.

Tom Paton

Tom from Broadband Savvy.

I’m Tom, and I founded Broadband Savvy.

We started because there was a clear gap in the market for well-put-together information and advice pertaining to broadband in the UK. Previously, if you wanted help fixing your internet, you had to rely on a random forum user. And when shopping for a new broadband deal, it was just a sea of comparison sites that all showed a massive list of deals without helping you answer the most important question – which one is right for me?

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve always been tinkering with our broadband connection. I still remember trying to connect my Wii to the internet in 2010 to play Mario Kart online. It wouldn’t connect, no matter what I did, until after days of trial and error, I figured out I just needed to reset the router.

As a bit of an internet nerd, I thought I could help people solve common broadband issues, by taking the time to put together quality online resources. That’s why I built Broadband Savvy.

Tom has more than five years’ experience publishing broadband-related content, including writing tutorials and troubleshooting guides, and reviewing routers, MiFi devices, and dongles.

His views have been published in the Guardian and on Light Reading, as well as in other leading publications, and he is a regular host of videos published on the Broadband Savvy YouTube channel.

Hey there – I’m Tyler. I help create awesome content at Broadband Savvy, and I also manage social media operations and partnerships.

I’m an internet nerd and a keen gamer, which means I’m constantly tinkering with my home PC. Currently, I’m using BT superfast fibre at home, and I’m looking forward to upgrading to full fibre in the near future.

In my spare time, I play Sunday league football, and I love to play with my dog. But when I’m not training, gaming, or swapping parts around in my computer, I help out with Broadband Savvy.

Tyler has more than three years’ experience helping people improve their digital connectivity. He is responsible for a large number of broadband provider and device reviews published on our website, with a particular focus on the analytical side of testing – such as collating data on speed and latency tests.

He is also responsible for managing Broadband Savvy’s social media accounts, and helps to write scripts for the Broadband Savvy YouTube channel.
