UK broadband prices have hit an all-time low, says price comparison website uSwitch.com.

The website says the price of an average standalone broadband connection has tumbled 36% in four years to £17 a month, with a maximum speed of 8Mbps.

Nearly 15 million households are now spending a total of more than £3bn a year subscribing to a service.

USwitch says the cheapest standalone broadband service is offered by Plusnet, at £10 a month for 8Mbps.

But nearly five million homes are paying more than £20 a month for their broadband, wasting £162m a year, says the site.

Orange is among those suppliers charging £20 a month for an 8mbps service.

Virgin Media plans to roll out a 50Mbps service by the end of 2008.
