If you’ve been with your current provider for a while now, you might not be getting the best deal on your broadband, TV and phone. Equally, if you’ve just moved home and you’re looking to get connected, you’ll want to make sure you’re getting a good deal before committing to a contract.
Offers and promotions change regularly so there’s usually a good chance of saving yourself some money, getting faster broadband speeds, a bigger TV package, cashback or even vouchers.
While it’s possible to get TV, broadband and phone from different providers, combining them into one package can not only save you money, it means there’s just one bill and one monthly payment.
What’s more, our comparison service is accredited by the government watchdog Ofcom. This means we’ve passed their rigorous tests including checking the information we provide you is accessible, accurate, transparent, comprehensive and up-to-date.
Unfortunately, there’s no straightforward answer to this one. What’s best for you will depend on a whole range of factors but three key ones to think about are:
1. Where you live
Where you live is an important consideration as not all providers, services and deals are available to everyone. For example, those living in more rural areas may not have the option of fibre optic broadband so will be limited in their high-speed broadband choices.
Because where you live is such a big factor, when comparing broadband, TV and phone deals we’ll ask you for your postcode. This means we’ll only show you the options available in your area.
2. Which services you want
With so many confusing package combinations to choose from, having an idea of the services you want will help narrow down your search.
The connection speed and broadband monthly usage allowance you need will depend on the your household. If you regularly stream TV like Netflix or Amazon Prime TV, play online games or have multiple devices in the home that might be doing both, you’re probably better off with an unlimited usage allowance and a fibre optic connection if it’s available in your area.
Look out for the minimum average speed the provider offers as this determines how fast web pages load, files download and the time streaming takes to buffer. If your household is a heavy broadband user, a fast speed is recommended.
3. How much you want to or can afford to spend
With so many different combinations to choose from, it’s no surprise that monthly costs can vary wildly. Although your bill will be charged monthly we’ll also show you the total first year cost alongside any setup costs. The prices we show also include any line rental that comes with the deal.
With this clear break down of costs you should be able to quickly work out what’s within your budget.
Finally, if you're running a business you may want to consider business broadband rather than a domestic contract. Business deals usually offer you higher speeds and generous usage limits which are key to keeping your business running online.
As well as your location, the services you're looking for and your budget, you'll want to think about:
- TV: number of channels and which packages are included e.g. do you want access to sports, movies, or kids channels?
- Phone: whether you want inclusive anytime calls, evening and weekend calls or deals without a phone line.
- Equipment costs (if any): wireless router or set-top box – most providers have their own branded equipment, which they’ll supply free or for a charge.
- Installation cost (if any): depending on whether your home is already set up, there may be a cost to get you connected to a provider.
- Contract length: usually 12 – 18 months. Are you happy to be tied-in to a longer contract if you know you’re getting a good deal or would you prefer the option of switching again after 12 months?
