Simplifydigital.com's guide to spring cleaning your finances

According to the research, customers who compare deals using Simplifydigital's comparison service save an average of £257 a year because they end up with a digital bundle which is tailored to their needs.

Meanwhile 20 per cent of customers save an impressive £397 a year, and the top 10 per cent save a whopping £606 a year.

This means that customers are still wasting big money with overpriced tariffs - particularly on their broadband and home phone packages and can make huge savings by taking advantage of the great value bundle deals currently on offer.

Charlie Ponsonby, CEO of Simplifydigital.com comments:

"Customers simply do not realize how much money they are wasting by failing to seek out the best digital TV, broadband and home phone deals.

"The telecommunications market is notoriously competitive which means that there has never been a better time to take advantage of the savings on offer. 

"A good place to start your financial "spring clean" is switching to a cheaper broadband  deal.  Packages now start from as little as £20 per month for a triple play bundle (you get three services and pay a single bill) - plus there are some amazing introductory offers to be had on top."
