Broadband reveals how to make big savings on high quality broadband

There is good news this winter for broadband customers who want high quality customer service and technical support without paying over the odds for their broadband package.

With broadband providers now very aware that there is a real opportunity to get an edge through the service offered, just as much as the price - a range of high quality broadband packages are on the market at very competitive prices.

Charlie Ponsonby, CEO of Ofcom accredited broadband comparison service, said:

"Broadband providers are competing on two fronts - price and service, and we are seeing some great value deals now on high quality broadband packages that include good UK based customer service and free technical support."

O2 Broadband has focused strongly on service and is unique in offering free UK-based "Gurus" available over the phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  The O2 Gurus are on hand to help with anything from a technical fault, through to friendly help with operating your laptop and surfing the net.  And they are also available in O2 stores on the high street.

Charlie Ponsonby continued:

"The O2 Guru service is a great for households who would like some friendly help on all things to do with operating a computer and surfing the web - you can ask them simple questions and you will get answers in plain English - i.e. it's genuinely helpful." 

Other broadband providers like Sky and Plusnet also offer strong customer service propositions.  Indeed Sky has just come top in Ofcom's recent study of broadband provider customer service published this week.

So choosing between providers can be tricky and depends on your household's individual needs, which is why an independent advisory service like Simplifydigital can be a real help.  Its independent experts are on hand seven days a week to talk through the pros and cons of all the best broadband deals available in the UK, with a Lowest Price Guarantee to ensure that you won't get a cheaper deal elsewhere.

They also offer a unique "Switching Support" service for free, to place your order for you and help make sure that the new service gets installed with minimum of fuss.'s pick of the broadband bundle deals from the most customer-friendly broadband providers
