As UK energy regulator Ofgem has begun encouraging consumers to check price comparison websites in order to ensure they aren't being ripped-off by greedy energy companies, a broadband service comparison website has seen a significant update.

Top 10 Broadband aims to help users get the best available broadband deal. The site offers a postcode checker, a broadband switching tool, ISP news and other broadband comparison functions.

The postcode checker graphically represents the distance between a user’s home and the local phone exchange from which their broadband connection comes. It also offers an idea of what speeds the line will support and offers a list of available ISPs and price packages.

The switching tool analyses a user’s existing broadband connection and suggests better alternatives. Top 10 Broadband believes thousands of UK homes pay too much for their broadband connection and don't get the speed they deserve.
