Uswitch urges anyone out of contract with their mobile or broadband provider to run a comparison online to ensure they’re not overpaying for their service or due an upgrade.

Ernest Doku, telecoms expert at, comments: “There are some impressive broadband and mobile deals to be had right now, so if you are out of contract, it’s a great time to shop around. 

“If you’re unsure when your current deal comes to an end, check the original documents you should have received upon signing up.

“Many broadband users will have found their need for fast and reliable Wi-Fi has increased during the pandemic through home working and might want to upgrade to a deal that offers higher speeds.

“With models like Apple’s iPhone 13 or Google’s Pixel 6 at affordable prices it’s easy to get drawn in by a good-looking deal. Always assess your personal needs for a mobile package before jumping in, as you don’t want to find yourself overpaying for data or storage you’re not using in the long run. 

“If you’re happy with your current handset, SIM-only deals are a great option when looking for ways to keep the monthly costs down.”
