Consumers looking to save money on broadband have been advised to switch providers.

According to the Guardian, prices have lowered considerably in recent years and people who are on older deals may be able to find a cheaper service elsewhere.

The publication notes that four years ago the average price of broadband was around £27 a month, plus BT landline rental.

Now, packages start at around £7.50, the newspaper suggests.

"Ofcom rules on switching suppliers mean that the switching process, in theory at least, should be fairly painless," it adds.

Those swapping from the most expensive provider to cheapest could save as much as £240 a year, according to the paper.

Ofcom commenced an investigation into switching earlier this year following continuing complaints that some internet service providers were making the process difficult by failing to provide migration access codes within the allotted time period.

It will announce its findings in the coming months.
