Broadband customers should keep an eye on new, cheaper tariffs that are available on deals in the new year, according to an expert.
Edd Dawson has reminded broadband subscribers that they could be paying a premium price plan while there are less expensive offers around.
The managing director of Broadband.co.uk has advised contract holders whose minimum term has expired to ask their provider to move them onto a better tariff in exchange for signing up again.
"Many broadband customers who have been with their providers for more than 12 months will find that they may be paying more than new customers with the same supplier," clarified Mr Dawson.
He went on: "Often if you contact your current supplier and ask to be moved to their new prices in return for signing up for a minimum term again you will find they'll usually agree."
Broadband users were also reminded that all they need to switch company is a Migration Authorisation Code (MAC) from their provider.
