The majority of consumers would rather have a standalone broadband connection instead of a bundle, a new survey has found.

According to a poll by, 75.1 per cent would favour standalone broadband over a bundle including other services, such as TV and a landline telephone.

Respondents were also asked what features they would find most desirable in a home broadband option.

While 28.1 per cent said a landline phone would be good to have and 18.8 per cent favoured a TV element to a bundle, they were outnumbered by the 40.3 per cent who said they did not want any other services included with their broadband.

The survey also found that many people would back the idea of broadband providers offering shorter but potentially more expensive contracts as an option for their bundles.

Some 32.6 per cent backed this option, while 30.3 per cent said maybe, although the remaining 37 per cent were against it.
