Customers have a range of cheap deals to choose from when it comes to signing up for broadband internet, according to one expert.
Michael Phillips, Product Director at Broadband Choices, was speaking in the wake of figures from European Commission which show that the average subscription fee for a package of between 1Mb and 2Mb fell from 38 (£35) in 2007 to 31 (£29) by last year.
Further data demonstrated that the prices for 2Mb and 4Mb deals fell by a massive 29 per cent to 37 (£34) a month.
"The broadband market seems to be weathering the credit crunch and in a bid to attract new customers or get consumers to switch broadband provider, many new cheap broadband deals have been launched," said Mr Phillips.
"As well as being able to save as much as £135 by switching, consumers can get themselves a better standard of service, better value and even a month or two of free broadband."
It was found that broadband has now penetrated 28.4 per cent of the EU population.
