If you happen to be in the unenviable position of trying to find the best broadband/phone/TV package, then look no further because you've come to the right place. With all of the main providers offering persuasive rates for similar sounding bundles, it can often be difficult to know if you're getting the best value deal for you.

The key is in knowing what services you are likely to make the most use of and those which you can live without. Comparison websites are extremely helpful, however they can only do so much of the work- it's up to you to ensure that you have some clarity regarding your personal requirements.

It's important to be clear about what you actually use broadband for, for example do you tend to download a lot of films and music? Do you need a lot of space in order to store personal photographs and home videos? Or perhaps you only use broadband for the most basic of things - checking e-mail and watching the odd video on Youtube? Whatever your personal requirements, it's vital to be clear on them before beginning your search.

Once clear about what kind of package you're looking for, it's important to know what broadband speeds are actually available in your area - this is a common mistake made by many people. Many providers now offer highly competitive rates for superfast broadband speeds, and many people assume that paying for the best possible level of service guarantees them access to these speeds. The reality is, this is not always the case, and this is why there can often be such a discrepancy in the speeds advertised and the speeds people actually end up receiving.

The next thing to consider would be what download limit would best suit your needs. Many providers now offer an unlimited usage option, which would be a wise choice if you're an avid gamer or regularly download a large number of films or music files. The important thing is just to be honest and realistic about your downloading needs, and then to get a package that best reflects this.

Many packages now come with their own online security software, which is already installed and automatically runs once connection has been set up. This can be particularly appealing if you're not the most technologically minded of people and can also save you a significant amount of money, not to mention time, in not having to shop elsewhere.

Lastly, as well as ensuring that the contract is at a length suitable to your specific needs, check that the rates agreed upon aren't set to increase. Many providers offer competitive introductory prices, so be sure that you're happy to pay both the initial and increased costs.

So, just by taking these few simple points into consideration before deciding on a broadband provider/package, you're far more likely to avoid any nasty surprises in terms of hidden costs, and better equipped to protect against paying unnecessary expense for services not required.
