The Internet has gone off again! is the worst statement to be heard in this household, as you can imagine with seven children that have access to games, consoles, laptops, ipads and Sky TV, if the internet goes down due to dodgy broadband, I suddenly become the worst parent in the world, so to ensure that you have the correct broadband for you and that you know where to look for the best broadband deals, here are some Top Tips to assist you.
Check The Small Print
Some deals sound amazing value, and you start off thinking you have a really good deal, but ensure you check the small print, because you may find that the cost after your initial sign up may be much higher than you were expecting.
Length of Contract and Leaving Conditions
Many broadband deals will have a minimum contract time and if you decide to leave before that time is up, there may be significant leaving fees, which may make your good deal become much more expensive than you have originally thought, of course if you know that you will be with that provider for a long time and there will be no reason to leave early then that’s all good, but if there is a hint that you may need to give up the service early, then ensure you choose one that has a short tie in, or no leaving fees.
Is The broadband fit for purpose
Check out the broadband’s speed and capacity, it’s no good paying for a cheap service that won’t be able to cope with demand, our house has nine people that all use the internet for one reason or another, if we only paid for a slow connection and not enough bandwidth, there would be utter chaos!
Special Offers and Deals with other services
Many providers also have products that families use that may offer a substantial discount, such as mobile phones and television packages, if you already have these services, it may be worth checking what deals are on offer and could save you a substantial amount, likewise if you are joining a provider for the first time, check out if they have new joining offers, such as cashback deals or shopping vouchers.
Check Standard and Fibre Deals
People always assume that the standard broadband will be cheaper than fibre, but sometimes that’s not the case, so its always best to research all options, you never know you may get a better deal on a more advanced product.
