Broadband and mobile social tariffs

The Government has called on all broadband providers to offer and promote social tariffs which are discounted broadband and mobile deals for people on Universal Credit, Pension Credit or other benefits.

The exact requirements depend on the broadband provider in question – some only offer social tariffs to Universal Credit recipients, while others extend eligibility to those on Income Support, Jobseeker’s Allowance and Employment & Support Allowance. If you would be interested in exploring this further you can find details at or you can contact your current provider to discuss moving to a social tariff.
