Are You Paying £300 Per Year Too Much For Broadband?

1 in 3 households in the UK hasn’t switched broadband in over 4 years meaning they are likely paying over £300 a year more than they need to for their broadband service. There are always special deals available that will reduce your annual costs for the first 12 months. Many broadband providers will also use gift vouchers from major retailers to reduce the real cost of their services. The problem is when the 12-month deal expires and customers revert to standard pricing – this is when things start to get expensive.

The way broadband providers advertise deals is so murky and misleading, and new laws came into force last year which requires them to break down their pricing in a simpler way to make it easier for consumers to differentiate between deals and choose the best one for them. Despite these new rules, choosing the best broadband package is difficult and switching can be time-consuming. As a result, more than half of households in the UK don’t bother shopping around or switching when their 12-month introductory offer expires.

We’ve outlined the best broadband deals available in the UK this month and will keep the article up to date as we go forward.
