Once your initial contract period runs out and any promotional deals have ended, the cost of your broadband might increase. In fact, research shows that people who have passed their initial contract period pay around 20% more on their broadband deal.
You may be able to get your current broadband package more cheaply – either with your existing provider or by switching to a new one.
And upgrading to faster speeds doesn’t need to cost you more either. Superfast broadband deals can start from around £20 – that’s less than you can pay for some standard broadband packages once you pass your initial contract period.
If you’re not happy with what your current provider is offering, you can shop around for a deal that suits you.
You could use a price comparison site to check the different deals on offer. Ofcom accredits a number of comparison sites to ensure they are accurate, accessible, transparent and up-to-date.
