Top tips for cheapest broadband deals

Calculating your usage for everything from fuel to electricity means that you can find ways and means to lowering monthly bills. And, when it comes to getting the cheapest deal for your internet people are desperate to shave money off.

With digital platforms becoming such a big part of our lives, there are always going to be reasons that we need the internet. Whether it’s internet shopping or expert articles about industry, it’s all right there at our fingertips. So, how exactly, do we go about getting the best broadband deals from an economical point of view?

Check your usage

If you use less data usage than you are allowed or have a quicker connection than you really need, you could well be quids in by going back to market. With the market being hugely competitive, there are so many deals you can choose from, but do you need 75 gigabytes of usage or a 40 megabit per second connection? Probably not.

Consider a broadband speed test to see if you are getting enough power, or how much you can feasibly have running through your home. From here you will know if you just need a few megabits for emails or many for downloads. Plus, ask to see what your usage has been and average it out over the last few months because many people tend to find that there are paying for more data than is actually required.

Look at price comparison websites

Many people wax lyrical about the brilliance of price comparison and how it is the number one way to find the top price – and, they’re right. Getting all the big names in industry and their prices flashing right before your eyes is quite easily the simplest way to go about finding the best deal.

One potential problem is that many people don’t get the loyalty rewards and bonuses from companies due to using these websites, but over a year, you can save an awful lot of money. We use these websites for anything from travel insurance to investments, and they should always be the first port of call when it comes to finding the cheapest broadband deals.

Consider a bundle

Finally, and often the best way to sort all of your home needs in one, is getting your broadband in a bundle with your telephone and television packages. Some studies have shown that as much as £300 can be saved every year through bundling everything into one provider.

This does, of course, mean though that instead of solely doing your homework on broadband, you have to do it one television and telephone deals as well. Do you want cheap foreign calls? Are sports channels a big factor in having cable television? Is your entire household online and competing for bandwidth? All of these things make a difference in what you need to do with regards to sorting the cheapest broadband deal for your family.


  1. Included in my consideration is unlimited browsing. I'm not that much of a fan of high-speed internet connections with data transfer caps.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop.
