Origin Broadband set up shop in 2011 with the aim of offering a simple “no hidden fees” approach to broadband. The South Yorkshire-based firm has grown significantly since then, providing broadband to customers across the UK. It also offers some TV and streaming app packages alongside its broadband deals.

What kinds of speeds can Origin Broadband offer?
Origin Broadband offers 3 different fixed line packages: its basic 11Mbps package, “Superfast” (36Mbps) and “Max Fibre” (67Mpbs). It’s worth noting that customers can choose to pay for a year upfront and get a small discount on their package’s total cost.
Do I need a landline to get Origin Broadband?
Like most providers, Origin Broadband will provide your connection via a cabinet near your home. The connection from the cabinet will typically come through to your home via copper cables connected to a BT socket. Any of the 3 packages you get via Origin Broadband will therefore require a landline. This means that you can also get call packages with Origin Broadband as an add-on to your package.

Can I claim compensation from Origin Broadband if things go wrong?
Unlike many of its larger competitors, Origin Broadband isn’t a member of Ofcom’s Automatic Compensation Scheme. But, it’s always worth asking for a partial refund if you’re experiencing connection problems for an extended period.
Origin Broadband customer reviews
Origin Broadband scores pretty highly for its service based on customer reviews posted on sites like Trustpilot. An impressive 70% of 12,000 customer reviews give the firm a positive rating, with 57% Excellent, and a further 13% saying their experience was Great (last updated: June 2021).
Origin Broadband pros and cons
Our verdict: Is Origin Broadband any good?
Origin Broadband certainly offers some competitively priced broadband packages. While there isn’t a great deal of choice, the firm’s “keep it simple” mantra seems to be serving it well, with broadly decent customer reviews. The option to pay for a year upfront offers a small saving for those able to make the larger payment.
All in all, Origin Broadband represents a good value alternative to the likes of Plusnet and TalkTalk and is certainly worth considering if it serves your area.
