How To Find The Best Deals On Broadband Packages
Broadband, phone and TV packages are one of those monthly bills people just get used to paying and many people pay no attention to what they’re paying. As a result consumers in the UK are too loyal to their provider and as a result could be paying hundreds of pounds per year more than they need to. It’s estimated that 1/3 of households have been with their existing provider for 3 years or more which means it’s likely they could be paying less than what they currently are.
Most package deals for broadband, phone and TV are 12 to 18 months long. At the end of this period, prices will often increase significantly. Its a bit like your mortgage: you get a special rate to encourage you to sign up. The provider then hopes you will stay with them long-term and they make most of their profit from you in later years.
Here are some tips to make sure you are always paying the right amount for your broadband, phone and TV packages.
Check Your Bill
The first thing to do is check your last few bills and understand exactly what you are paying for. Are you still paying the introductory rate or have you reverted to the providers standard pricing? Are you paying for a standard 17MB package or Fibre Optic at much higher download speeds? Do you really need to be paying for Fibre Optic? Fibre Optic is designed for heavy internet users, those who are watching streaming TV services like Netflix or playing XBox/Playstation online. If you just use the internet to browse websites and check your email you probably don’t need Fibre Optic and this could mean big savings.
If you feel you are paying more than you need to then its time to consider switching to a new provider. There are 12 main broadband providers in the UK, some of whom provide Broadband and Phone packages only. Others provide TV services as well.

Haggle With Your Current Provider
If you don’t want to switch to a different provider then all is not lost. Broadband, Phone and TV providers are among the easiest companies to negotiate with. They’ve paid a lot of money to bring you on board as a customer and they do not like to lose you. Call your provider and tell them you want to cut your monthly bills. Tell them the best deal you’ve found online and ask them if they can match it. While they may not offer you the exact same deal it is possible they will offer to lower your monthly bills to keep you happy. Alternatively, they may offer you some upgrades like a faster internet speed or free calls. Call us on 0800 049 9749 and we’ll tell you the best deals currently on offer from your existing provider.
