Is it time to save money on your broadband bill?

The recession is leading many UK households to try and save money, but 50% haven’t switched broadband provider in the last 4 years, even though broadband prices have fallen by at least 37% in this time.
Not only are many likely to be paying more for their broadband but they are also missing out on faster broadband speeds.
Broadband is seen by many as an indispensible service and yet broadband services are not regularly compared and switched as other utilities, such as gas and electricity are.
Research from Consumerchoices.co.uk, highlights broadband bills as an opportunity where many could get a better deal than they are currently on.
It may be worth considering a broadband bundle, whereby you can save money by buying your broadband, phone, TV and even mobile phone services from one supplier.
For example you can get some great deals from Virgin Media – check out the latest broadband bundle deals here.
As Michael Phillips, product director, Consumerchoices.co.uk, comments ‘UK consumers stuck on ‘legacy (broadband) tariffs’ are really losing out here as the price of broadband has fallen whilst the quality of service available has greatly improved in the last 4 years.
Even if they are satisfied with their current provider they should ask to be put on a more up to date package as the benefits to their service and bank balance will be instantaneous.’
