How to save on your broadband bill

Find out how you could save money on your broadband

As you’ll find with most things in life, a little research can often lead to a better deal. And Carphone Warehouse has a fair bit of experience in that department. What most don’t realise, however, is that we could be saving you money on more than just your monthly mobile phone bill...

Compare the best deals

A great place to start if you’re looking to either change providers or start a new contract is Carphone Warehouse’s online broadband comparison tool - follow the link to check it out. Here you’ll be able to see how Sky, Virgin, TalkTalk, Pop, Plusnet and the Post Office’s internet services stack up against each other.

A lot of internet services work better depending on your postcode. So, you may find that you’ll get a faster and more reliable service from Sky at home in Greater Yarmouth, compared to your friends connected with Virgin in Manchester. Just like mobile phone coverage, internet connectivity is dependent on location.

Bundle deals

If you have your internet provided by one company, and your television package supplied by another, you could be saving cash. Often companies that supply broadband will have a TV package attached to them, meaning they can offer you a bundle at a discounted rate - compared to buying them both separately.

The same goes for line rental. It’s a rarity that you’d have your broadband and home phone supplied by different firms, but if you do, it would be worth giving your internet provider a quick call.

Broadband only

A common customer frustration in the broadband market is being made to pay for line rental, when most households have little to no use for a home phone. With the vast majority instead opting to use the inclusive minutes of their mobile phone contracts.

Virgin is currently one of the few providers to offer what’s called a ‘broadband only’ contract, which does exactly what it says on the tin. No line rental = cheaper monthly costs (or spare cash to pay for quicker download speeds).

To find out if you could be saving money on your broadband or TV bundles. Enter your postcode and you’ll be able to see what’s available in your local area.
