Commenting on the CMA’s digital comparison tools market study final report, Richard Neudegg, Head of Regulation at uSwitch.com, says: “The CMA’s final report on digital comparison tools highlights how comparison services are putting power in the hands of the consumer, driving competition and keeping suppliers on their toes.
“Over 90% of users are satisfied with the sites they visit, demonstrating the important role comparison services play in enabling consumers to make better-informed choices and access better deals.
“uSwitch welcomes moves to help more consumers access the benefits of competition. The CMA’s recommendations should ensure a base level of standards across the board for all digital comparison services. This should give even more consumers the confidence to get a better deal.”

Launched in September 2000, uSwitch is an online and telephone price comparison and switching service, helping consumers get a better deal on gas, electricity, broadband, TV services, mobiles and personal finance products including mortgages, credit cards, car and home insurance. Last year we saved UK consumers over £278 million on their energy bills alone.
Customers can sign up to an account that automatically monitors the energy market and notifies them when they can move to a cheaper tariff, while broadband customers can conduct a speed test to find out how fast their broadband is and identify the best deal for their postcode.
The multi award-winning 'Switching Made Simple' app allows customers to compare energy, broadband, credit card, mobile and SIM-only deals – and uSwitch also has a UK contact centre manned by energy and broadband experts. Customers can post their latest energy bills to FREEPOST USWITCH to receive a free call back and be guided through the comparison process, or they can email firstname.lastname@example.org with their postcode and usage details.
uSwitch is owned by ZPG, which operates some of the UK’s most trusted digital brands that help empower smarter property and household decisions including Zoopla, Money, PrimeLocation and SmartNewHomes.
