How do you get the best Broadband deal online?

1918 1270 The easy way to save money online

Is your current broadband provider deal finished? If so, it is worth comparing deals and finding out if you are likely to save a lot on your next contact.

Remember, providers want you to stay on past your minimum contract, so they can charge you more per month than during the promotion period. Don’t fall into this trap.

*More than 70% of broadband customers are paying more than they should for being loyal to their Internet Service Provider (ISP), consumer watchdog Which? reveals.

Here are some tips to uncover how you can grab a top deal:

Check your current costs

Review your current monthly costs you pay for Broadband package and calls.  Running over your data allowance?  Has your contract run out?  Often companies will create a loss leader product, a product which doesn’t make a profit for a company until a set period of time or until a customer upsells.  i.e. An ISP will issue a very cheap broadband deal for 12 months and then the prices will jump up by 40% for each consecutive month afterwards unless you cancel.

When?

The best deals are on during Black Friday, which is the end of November and also in January (“new year, a new broadband deal”), but rest assured, also throughout the year there are always competitive deals released to the market.

Staying with your current provider? Get haggling.

It can be annoying, seeing the best deals offered to new customers when your loyalty isn’t rewarded.  But, as the saying goes “if you don’t ask, you don’t get”, existing customers can also ask for better deals. Prepare and research the deals offered elsewhere and ring up your provider. Select the option “thinking of leaving” and get through to the retention team. explain you are thinking of leaving and ask if they match the deal you have found. They may often offer cheaper Broadband, free calls, faster speeds or even a router upgrade.

Which online sites should you visit?

In 5-10 minutes, you can find the best deal in the market. How? Just simply look for the word “exclusive” on a comparison site. This is a sign that it is market leading and great value.

When you want to switch, always use a price comparison tool/site. Broadband Comparison Sites will compare the best deals on the market and recommend what is best for your needs (Speed, availability. cost and type of product). Providers like BT, Sky and TalkTalk work with affiliates (comparison sites, bloggers and news sites) and send them the competitive deals to sell to their visitors. In fact – check out

Your new provider will take care of everything involved in the switch, including getting your current broadband cancelled.

Enjoy getting great new Broadband deals and spending those savings elsewhere!
