Three tips to make sure you don't overspend on your broadband | The Sun

MILLIONS of broadband users are paying over the odds for their internet.

That’s because they don’t switch deals when their contract comes to an end.

Here’s how to make sure you find the best prices so you don’t overspend.

SET A REMINDER: Most broadband contracts run out after 12 to 24 months. After that, the price typically goes up.

So put a reminder in your diary in the weeks before your deal expires to start looking around at what’s available, using sites such as Broadband Genie, MoneySuperMarket and Uswitch.

Alex Tofts of Broadband Genie, says: “Often customers can save hundreds of pounds by switching.”

But hurry as the offer ends at midnight on Friday — and not all postcodes are covered, so use the tool to check.
