How To Make Digital Savings of TV, Broadband and Telephone

Your rating: None
Rising utility bills are constantly putting an extra strain on our finances but there are ways to make large saving on TV, broadband and phone deals as providers fight for business.
Recent research by Ofcom-accredited comparison service showed that 84% of TV, broadband and home phone customers could save more than £445 per year.
A free and impartial service like can be a big help in identifying the best deal in your area, with experts available free 7 days a week and more than 6,000 to chose from.
Alternatively, the Telegraph Digital Saving Service can compare over 11000 broadband, digital TV and home phone deals currently on offer.
4: lists the best broadband deals they can find from all the major providers. You can find them quickly and easily on the site, and start saving money immediately if you get your broadband, phone and digital TV together in one package.
Exclusive online offers! Virgin Media & Sky online deals: compares the latest broadband and TV deals from Virgin Media, Sky and BT with HD & home phone options, and currently offers exclusive online broadband, TV and home phone bundles from £10!
Guardian Digital Comparison offers to find the best TV, broadband & home phone deals by comparing a wide range of services.
Despite the potential savings, people often put off moving to a better deal because of the hassle of switching over to the new service. This is why Simplifydigital’s free switching support service is proving to be so popular, because their UK-based consultants are on hand every step of the way, up to the new service up and running in your home. Check with the other providers to see if they offer a similar service.
Bear in mind that some packages may be cheaper with a user-cap, which may still be sufficient for family home use.
The cheapest deals are often governed by the length of the contract.
Beware of being tied up to a 12 or 18 month contract with a poor provider with no get-out clause.
