WHILE getting broadband, digital TV and home phone services from one provider may save families hundreds, not everyone is a keen television fanatic – some of us simply do not have time to sit back and indulge in digital TV.

Says a spokesperson for “That is why has selected the best budget deals which include only broadband and home phone from a single provider, which will allow customers, who don’t need a digital TV subscription, to throw a few extra coins into their piggybanks.

“The UK is one of the world’s most competitive broadband markets and there are some great deals on offer, from a great variety of providers. However, beware of the small print as not all of these are available in every area, so we strongly recommend talking to the experts before taking the plunge.”

Geoff Slaughter, head of Online, at said:

“Prices for broadband and phone deals vary depending on where you live, so not everyone can get the cheapest price advertised by providers.

“However, just because one provider can’t give you their best deal, another may be able to, so using a comparison service is the only way to be sure that you’re getting the very best price.”
