Broadband users without bundles are missing out on big savings

A third of British broadband users could be saving money on the cost of their broadband by choosing to bundle it with other services, says Broadbandchoices.co.uk.

Research from the broadband comparison and information website has found that 33 per cent are currently overpaying on their broadband, by failing to get it as part of a package with their providers' phone or digital TV service.

Choosing a bundle instead of paying for these services separately could save consumers as much as £210 a year, the study shows, which also discovered customers of broadband bundles are happier with the value for money than those customers paying separately for their services.

The study found that 57 per cent of customers with bundles are happy with the value for money they receive, compared to 47 per cent of those with separate broadband.

Michael Phillips, product director at Broadbandchoices.co.uk, commented: "Household bills are high on the agenda - politically and socially - so it is surprising to see so many people continuing to pay separate suppliers for these services."

In addition to saving money, he added, "there's also the added convenience of having only one bill to pay."

Mr Phillips added that he would encourage anyone currently paying separate suppliers to get online and compare broadband bundle deals. "They will almost certainly save money on what they are currently paying by taking out a bundle. There is also a raft of special offers in the market offering three months free or free installation."
