If you've found what looks like the perfect deal and you're
thinking of buying your broadband online, that's great. Just bear
in mind that sometimes, the cheapest deal isn't the best value
package for you, especially if you're a larger household with lots
of internet users, as most cheap broadband deals come with standard
broadband speeds and lower download allowances. We think it's
always a good idea to get a little expert advice before committing
to a contract.
What is a cheap broadband deal?
A cheap broadband deal is a low cost package that includes
internet access, usually accompanied by line rental. It may also
include home phone and digital TV services, if you opt for a triple
play TV, broadband & phone deal with a single provider.
Simplifydigital often recommends moving to a triple play package as
the cheapest option for consumers who like to enjoy digital TV at
Did you know that Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk now offer
compelling discounts on their combined broadband, phone and TV
packages that make them almost as cheap as a basic triple play
package from the cheapest providers? Ongoing half price discounts,
price reductions and special offers make premium broadband, phone
& TV a lot more affordable, bringing the annual price down
considerably. You can also make your package even cheaper by paying
for line rental up front, which typically knocks about £4 off the
monthly line rental amount you'd otherwise be paying.
Our top 3 tips on comparing the cheapest broadband deals:
- Check the download allowance. Cheap
broadband packages will often have monthly usage allowances,
stepping out of which may cost you more than you think. Depending
on how much you use the intentet a 40GB usage allowance may be all
you need, if you have multiple users though who could be
downloading or streaming a lot of content you might find yourself
hitting that amount fairly quickly
- Check the speeds of the package. For most
people a standard 'up to' 14Mbps broadband package will be fine but
the more people that use the network then you could find that speed
slows down to a crawl
- Check for hidden costs. You've seen an
advertised monthly fee that seems reasonable, but have you factored
in any additional costs, such as line rental, fees if you go over
your download limit, installation or equipment costs? These can
mount up and you might be surprised by your first bill if you don't
