While landlines are being used less and less to make calls, they are still a common requirement in order to have the most popular types of broadband installed in your home. So whether you plan to use it or not, you'll want to make sure you have the best deal available.
Typically, the best broadband and phone deals will include a number of features such as free minutes, discounted international call rates, low monthly line rental fees or anytime calls.
Depending on your provider, these features are offered at varying degrees in different monthly plans for you to choose from, giving you the convenience of a single, easy-to-understand monthly bill that is inclusive of all your home phone and broadband costs.
There are a few things to consider when choosing a phone and broadband deal:
If you’re still using a landline to make and receive calls, whether locally or internationally, a broadband and phone bundle could be worthwhile and save you money, even if you only use it once a week to speak to the grandparents.
The best broadband and phone deal is the one that best suits your needs. So before you go in search of a new deal, here are a few things to consider.
This one may seem obvious. However, while some deals may appear to be more expensive initially, they could save you money in the long run. Make sure to check the full contract cost of your chosen package by clicking the 'Price Details' button on each of our deals. You can find it right below the monthly price on every deal we display.
Also, remember to look out for things such as set-up costs, line rental charges and initial gift vouchers or bill credits. Don't go for a deal just because it has these features, but if the deal's right for you, make sure you don't miss out on them!
If you’re looking to spend hours chatting on the home phone, then look out for deals that include the most minutes. That way, you should get more for your money.
Typically, free minutes are available during the evenings and on weekends, but some providers include free minutes at any time of the day. So make sure to look for deals that offer free minutes if you're planning to use your landline a lot.
Be sure to read your provider's terms & conditions to see when your free minutes are applicable. Are they for the first ten minutes of a call or the first hour? Also know when to hang up so you don’t get overcharged.
Do you use your landline to call mobiles or make international calls? If so, it’s important to check if these types of calls are included in your minutes, and if they aren’t, what are the costs?
If you're likely to call mobile phones or speak to people in other countries, you might want to avoid deals that charge extra for these services.
Typically the longer the commitment, the lower the monthly fee. So if you’re not averse to a 24-month contract, you could end up saving a fair amount on your monthly bill.
