Why use Simply Switch to compare broadband?

If you haven’t compared broadband deals in a long time, then there is a high chance that you could be saving money by switching to different internet provider.

Here at SimplySwitch we will show you all the best deals on broadband so that you can see where you could be saving money. All you need to do is tell use your postcode and we’ll tell you all the broadband plans available in your area.

Will changing broadband provider save me money?

We will show you all the cheapest deals on broadband that are currently available in your area. We then leave it up to you to decide which plan suits your needs the best. Often you will choose to switch to a plan that is cheaper per month than the one that you are on at the moment. What you could also do is switch to a plan that offers a higher broadband speed but at better value for money. This means that you may pay more but you’ll receive a higher quality service. It’s up to you, we show you the options so you can make an informed decision.

Why do we need your postcode?

The reason we ask you for your postcode is that not all broadband providers offer networks across the whole of the UK. As a result of this, in order for us to show you all the cheaper broadband deals that are available to you, we need to know which area you live in. This allows us to tailor your comparison results page to specifically suit your individual broadband needs. Your postcode will remain anonymous and we will never use it for any reason other than showing you how you could save money on your broadband.

Does cheaper broadband mean a slower connection?

Although as a general rule faster connection speeds cost more money, this does not always have to be the case. There is no reason that you can’t find a broadband plan that is the same speed as the one you are presently on, but for less money. The best way to find out what your options are is by comparing broadband providers and the deals that they offer. By doing this you will be in a better position to make an informed decision. Here at Simply Switch we believe in giving you all the information you need in order to make the best choice when it comes to choosing your broadband supplier.

Will there be any installation costs?

Not all broadband companies charge for installation but there are many that do. If you approach a company directly, there will be a much greater chance that you will have to pay a fee for them to install your new broadband service. however if you go through our comparison website, many of these companies have waved these fees in order to fight off competition. If you run a broadband comparison through Simply Switch, we will be able to tell you about all the hidden fees that come with each plan. This means that you will be able to see how much you will actually be paying for your new broadband plan.

Do I have to have a phone line in order to get broadband?

Generally the answer to this question is yes. Virgin media are currently the only broadband provider to offer their internet service without the need for a landline. This is because their fibre optic cable system works independently of phone lines as it is a different type of technology. Unfortunately, the only alternative to having a landline connection is having a mobile internet connection. These types of connection might be enough if you only use the internet very rarely but if you use it more often, you will soon find that the data limits and the slow speed will soon become tiresome.

What happens if I still have time left on my current contract?

If you still have time left on your contract with your current broadband provider, then you will probably have to pay for an early cancellation fee. The cost of these cancellation fees vary greatly depending on who you are receiving your broadband from. If you set up your current deal on some sort of promotional offer, it is more likely you will have a higher fees to pay in order to leave early. The best way to find out how much it will cost you to leave your plan early is by contacting your broadband provider directly.

How long will my contract be on a new broadband deal?

The length of the contract that you will take out on a new broadband deal will vary greatly depending on the plan that you choose to switch to. When you run a broadband price comparison through our website, we will tell you how long the contract for each deal is. If you have a particular length of contract in mind, then you can also refine your search to show only contracts of that length. If you are looking for the best deals on broadband, the plans with longer contracts often offer lower monthly rates.

How long will it take for my new provider to set up my internet connection?

Different providers take varying amounts of time to set up new broadband connections. Often it takes around two weeks to start a new broadband plan, however this will depend entirely on when your new provider can send out an engineer to your house to set it up for you. Your new provider will inform you of when they will be able to start your internet connection and you will be asked to select a time convenient to you. To find out how long it will take for your new provider to start your internet supply it is best to contact them directly.
