Why Bundling Your Home Internet And Phone is a Smart Move
If you’re paying separate monthly fees for home broadband and your telephone line then you could well be paying a lot more than you need to. A ‘bundle’ from just one service provider can be a cost-effective option, and you can do more than just the broadband and phone bundles.
It won’t take a lot of time to compare phone and broadband contracts you already have, to the wealth of deals on the market but it could save you a lot of money over the long term.
What is a bundle?
A broadband phone bundle is simply when you sign up for two services from one company, in this case your phone line and broadband together. But there are actually more options available depending on the package, and this can include television services and a mobile phone connection. If you’re paying for these services through separate companies you’ll often be paying a higher combined charge as opposed to taking out a bundle. Most people now choose bundles as it’s the cost-effective way to buy services, and the customer can tailor the bundle suit their needs and budget.
The lowest deals
There are plenty of companies across the UK and locally, all looking gain your custom. More choice means lower prices and these providers are trying to beat their rivals and entice you to sign up for a contract. Before you head to the comparison websites to check the deals, make sure to calculate how much you’re paying now for your internet service provider (ISP) and your telephone line rental. Combine these monthly charges, along with mobile phone monthly charges if you’re looking to switch, and then look at the deals for a bundle throughout online retailers and high street stores.
What to check for
Companies are offering incredibly low contract prices at the moment but that doesn’t mean they’re always suitable for you. Take into account terms such as unlimited broadband, to make sure you can download as much as you want without paying any excess fees. If you plan to use your broadband connection for streaming films or gaming you should consider your usage patterns. Check out the offers on inclusive calls with your phone line, and with your mobile phone if you’re going to be including this. Always make sure to check the coverage by your provider in your local area to make sure you receive fast internet speeds and good mobile reception.
When using broadband and phone bundle comparison websites make sure to use two or three different sites to make sure you cover the widest range of companies. Look out for those introductory offers for new customers, as these can give excellent value for money, but always calculate the entire contract length to see the true overall cost.
