About Post Office
It's not only about stamps and envelopes anymore - your local
Post Office can also offer you a competitive home phone and
broadband package. You can take up either a standalone home phone
or broadband service or you can opt for bundling, which is often
the cheaper option.
Those who wish to get a Post Office broadband and home phone
deal can note that there is no connection fee and while there is no
time agreement to consider for home phone services, the broadband
service is based on a 12 month contract.
Also, your monthly bundle bill will cover line rental, broadband
as well as evening calls to UK landlines, weekend calls to UK
landlines and mobiles as well as weekend calls to the Post Office's
top 20 international destinations, if you choose the Evening and
Weekend calls option.
If you're only after a broadband package then the Post Office
has two options for you.
Broadband Standard offers 5GB monthly download allowance, 5
email addresses, 50MB of web space, free security against viruses
and spam and a free Netgear modem.
There is no connection fee and the contract length is only 12
Broadband Extra includes all of the above but comes with a
monthly unlimited download allowance. There is no connection fee
and the contract length is also a minimum of 12 months.
