Rip-off broadbandPosted on Oct 08, 2023
Millions of broadband customers have been hit by price hikes up to 17.3% this year! Under-speed and over-cost! In addition to the rising cost of living, price rises to our every essentials are pushing more and more of us to our financial limits.
Broadband providers can increase their prices mid-contract by the rate of inflation, this is usually set out in their T&C’s in the small print, but this often leaves many of us tied into contracts we aren’t happy with. So, what can we do about it?
Firstly, you should check your contract. Millions of customers are out of contract and free to leave. Firms such as Virgin Media, TalkTalk, Sky, and more household names simply roll their out of contract customers onto pricier tariffs, meaning they’re paying even more without them signing up for it! Check if you can switch broadband supplier and save money now!
If you’re no longer tied into a contract with your broadband supplier you don’t have to put up with the price you’re paying, and you are free to go and take advantage of deals which tend to be for newbie customers. Comparing the deals available can help you pay less each month.
Alternatively, if you want to stay with your provider, you can try haggling to see if your current provider will match or beat a deal you’ve found elsewhere. Virgin Media, Sky, TalkTalk, Three, and O2 are among the top 10 companies to haggle with, why not give it a go?
