Two notable cases were Ward v Tesco Stores Ltdwhich set a precedent in so-called 'trip and slip' injury claims against retailersand Tesco Supermarkets Ltd v Nattrasswhich reached the House of Lords and became a leading case regarding the corporate liability of businesses for failures of their store managers in a case of misleading advertising. Criticism of Tesco includes disapproval of the effects supermarket chains can have on farmerssuppliers and smaller competitors; along with claims of generally poor labour relations with its staff concerning sick leave regulations. Tesco has been heavily criticised by the media in both the UK and Ireland among other places over its perceived ruthless and harsh business tactics compared to its rivals, all of whom stand charged, like Tesco, of bullying farmers to lower their prices to unsustainable levels. Waitrose was the only major supermarket to come out of this accusation relatively unscathed.

We compare broadband deals Every day, the Cable team trawls the UK marketplace to find the most remarkable broadband deals.

Types of broadband you'll find on Cable Standard broadband, also known as non-fibre or ADSL broadband has typical average speeds of Mbps.
It's aimed at small households with limited internet use. Superfast fibre broadband refers to anything over 24Mbps and under Mbps — good for medium to large households with moderate to high internet usage. Broadband with TV is offered by larger providers. It almost always means savings if you bundle your broadband deal with a subscription TV package rather than taking the two out separately.
Limited broadband is rare these days but some do still exist. Limited or 'capped' packages limit users to a certain number of gigabytes GB of data per month similarly to most mobile phone contracts. They can be either fibre or ADSL. Unlimited broadband is the alternative.
Most packages these days are unlimited, and as you might assume you can use as much or as little data as you wish each month.
As far as business broadband is concerned, we do allow you to compare it. However, Cable specialises in home broadband so you'll find more pages dedicated to what is, after all, a much bigger market.
Broadband providers Cable won't show you every provider. Instead we focus on those that provide a high quality service from the sales and installation process through to the equipment, reliability and customer service.
We compare TV packages and bundles Lots of companies provide broadband, but only a limited number of them also supply TV, and of those only a few offer anything remarkable.
Nevertheless, all that offer a telly box and broadband bundle do so for less than the two services cost separately, so if you're after both, bundles are where you should look.
TV-only deals are currently only available from Virgin Media and Sky. Conversely, TV and broadband bundles put the to together. By seeking out a TV and broadband bundle you can save money on both services.
Freeview TV packages offer the most basic, entry-level TV packages and are available from various providers, offering a set-top box of some kind and access to predominantly Freeview terrestrial channels.
It's worth knowing the difference before making your choice. Sky Cinema packages — previously knowns as Sky movies — are available from various providers beyond Sky. Sky Sports packages are also available from the same list of providers. TV providers on Cable Cable includes every TV provider in its listings apart from Plusnet, which has a TV offering, but will only let you have it once you're up and running with its broadband — its doesn't sell bundles and only sells to existing customers.
We compare mobile deals New mobile providers come and go quite frequently, often leaving behind a lot of extremely angry customers. That's why we at Cable will only show you deals from those providers that have proved themselves to have some serious staying power.
Types of mobile deal you'll find on Cable SIM only mobile plans are for people who already have a handset they're fond of. A new SIM can give it new life. Pay monthly mobile plans on the other hand come with a handset included. Pay as you go PAYG mobile plans allow you to only pay for what you use, though they generally work out more expensive when comparing like for like minutes and data.
We don't have side-by-side listings of PAYG phone plans, but we do offer a wealth of information in our guides section.
