If you haven’t switched your broadband, home phone or TV supplier in the last few years, chances are you are on your supplier’s standard deal and pricing. Switching your services often means you can make huge savings for up to 18 months.
There are often great deals for new customers offered by the UK’s biggest suppliers to help you save money. And if you bundle your services, you can get great broadband, content and calls for an even better price than separate deals!
If you decide to switch, your new supplier will take care of cancelling your last contract for you. Your new and old suppliers will send you notification of the switch, detailing services affected as well as any cancellation charges.
Our switching support service will be available throughout your switch to offer you any support or advice you need to get everything ready to go as soon as possible – you can contact them on 0800 781 2981.
Many of our customer’s find they can be up and running within just three weeks. However, this can vary depending on circumstances, supplier and location. Our switching support service will be available throughout your switch to offer you any support or advice you need to get everything ready to go as soon as possible – you can contact them on 0800 781 2981.
And don’t worry – if you’re not happy with your new service you have the right to cancel within 14 days.
As long as your landlord or letting agency is OK with getting the service installed. Remember that if you are ordering certain Sky TV packages you should make sure the owner of the property is happy for a satellite dish to be installed on the outside of the property.
Of course! If you don't think our recommended offers are the right fit for your household, then we'll be happy to help you look for a deal that works better for you.

Most broadband connections use your existing phone line to provide your internet. Line rental is the fee you pay your service provider for the use of this cable, and is included in the monthly cost displayed.
For most providers, you have to pay the line rental, even if you don’t use a landline phone. If you opt for a supplier with their own fibre network, for example Virgin Media, then you won’t have to pay line rental.
Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second (Mbps) – the higher the speed, the faster the connection. Broadband speeds in the UK can be over 30Mbps, going up to 300Mbps for the fastest fibre packages. The speed advertised is average speed - this is based on the download speeds of at least 50% of customers during peak hours (8pm to 10pm).
What speed you need depends upon what you use the internet for – if you’re streaming movies and TV over the internet, you’ll need a higher speed than if you use the internet just for sending emails. Our advisors are trained in helping you choose the speed that best matches your internet needs.
This is the cost of the package for the entire first year of the contract – this includes your monthly cost as well as any upfront fees you may have to pay.
