Media Release: Simplifydigital awarded Ofcom accreditation for the third year running

SIMPLIFYDIGITAL.COM  has received Ofcom approval for the third year running for its price comparison calculator.

No other retailer or consumer comparison site offering digital TV, broadband and home phone deals, has been officially accredited by Ofcom for all these three services.

The accreditation of Simplifydigital’s price comparison calculator helps ensure that customers make the right choice when switching their services.

Says a spokesperson for Simplifydigital: “Research by Ofcom* shows that nearly half (45 per cent) of consumers with broadband or a landline think that switching communications provider is too much of a hassle. With hundreds of deals to choose from and a myriad of providers announcing cheap headline deals daily, consumers are crying out for accurate and impartial advice they can trust.

“This prestigious accreditation is only achieved after a rigorous independent audit, which confirms to consumers that the Simplifydigital price comparison calculator is not only impartial, but accurate in showing customers how to get the best deal that is right for them.”

Charlie Ponsonby, CEO of Simplifydigital, says:

“We are enormously proud to remain the only retailer of digital TV, broadband and home phone deals to be fully accredited by the industry regulator, Ofcom.

“So, whether you’re looking for a standalone broadband deal or a complex bundle of services you can be sure that our advice is accurate and impartial.”

“Since 2008, we’ve seen consumers save hundreds of pounds year on year by using Simplifydigital. With all the great deals around at the moment consumers can save a staggering £408 per year on average, with the top ten per cent of people saving £550 pa.”

Claudio Pollack, director of Ofcom’s Consumer Group, comments:
