Why Price Comparison is a Fantastic Way to Learn About Your Homephone Choices
With BT and Virgin Media engineers a common sight around the UK now and the multitude of telecoms companies offering phone and broadband packages bombarding us with adverts promoting their latest price plans and money-saving deals, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choice when you are looking for a landline deal. Luckily though, there are online tools that can help remove the stress and cut down the time you spend searching for a suitable price plan.
Price comparison sites like Homephone Choices offer simple to use comparison tools to assist you in finding the most appropriate price plan. To find out what services providers offer in your area, all you need to is enter your home address into the search box on the site's homepage (they may refer to it as a 'landing' page) and hit the 'enter' key on your keyboard. A search will then take place, with results listed in price order from lowest to highest. It is possible to change the order by clicking any column header.
A real benefit of these sites are the impartial and honest customer reviews they collect and display. By reading a good cross-section of reviews regarding the call packages that catch your eye, it is possible to get an accurate representation of how reliable the service is, how quickly faults are rectified, how efficient customer service and technical support is and whether issues regarding billing are a regular occurrence. One review is not enough to read. If there are hundreds, scan through a few pages to see if there are any common themes to the reviews or if the tone is consistently negative. If it is, strike that price plan from your list of possibilities.
Check when peak call costs are implemented and what time each provider considers to be off-peak. Most providers regard 6 or 7pm to be the start of off-peak call charges- packages boasting free evening calls will also work to this schedule, but make sure you are certain when call costs are cheapest on each provider and work out when you use your landline most to ensure the deal you choose to sign up to will not end up costing you more money that your current price plan.
Many providers offer the chance to sign up to a 'bundle' deal that gives you access to multiple services, like broadband and digital TV as well as phone services. The discounts available on these deals make them more worthwhile that buying each service separately, but makes switching provider in future something of a complicated procedure.
A visit to a price comparison should be on the top of everyone's to-do list when considering changing home phone providers. Not happy with your current provider? Log on today to see what else is out there.
