One of my favourite things is saving money! I love it, in fact if something isn’t saving me money or on offer, I tend to not buy it!
Every year I always check our utility bills and the cost of our broadband to check that we are paying the CHEAPEST rate possible.
The prices can change so much year on year, and different companies can charge very different amounts for the same service.
We are currently looking at changing our broadband provider so I thought I would share my findings.
Best Broadband Deal
There are so many broadband deals to be had it is just a question of finding the best one for you.
There are so many things to consider when choosing:
- What is the average speed required?
- Look at if there is a set up cost?
- Are there any other special offers to be had (ie. do they offer free phone calls?)
- Do you need a phone land line as well?
- How long do you want to be tied in to the contract?
- Do you want a TV package?
- Do you want call costs included?
Once these questions have been answered it is so easy to find the cheapest options for you.
As I work from home and Freddie is homeschooled we need the quickest speed available. We live in a village so we are fairly limited with what top speed we can go for. But as you enter your postcode into the search finders it shows the best speed for your location. It honestly couldn’t be easier.
Depending on your provider you can save up to £273 a year by switching. As we switch every year though we have only saved about £30. But that is still a saving, so I will happily take it!
Switching Broadband Providers
Assuming you are out of contract with your existing supplier, you can do everything online without informing anyone. It can all be completed online within about 5 minutes as long as you have everything to hand. Such as your bank details to arrange the direct debit at the end of the process.
So, what are you waiting for? If you are out of contract with your broadband provider check out how much money you could save. It might be more than you think! Let me know in the comments how much you have saved.
