Tips on finding the cheapest broadband deal

There are so many Internet providers on the market these days, making the prices for high-speed connections very competitive. So how do you decide which broadband supplier the right package for you?

The “unlimited broadband” adverts

"Unlimited Broadband" is one of the ISPs favorite advertising lines. Some of these so called "Unlimited" download limits do have a fair usage policy (usually not well advertised and hidden amongst the small print). You may not even need a huge download limit or a cheap broadband deal, if you only use your broadband Internet connection to check emails, surf the net a little, and perhaps a little shopping. Be aware and know exactly what download limit you will require, so you don’t pay more than you have to simply because of an Internet service provider’s advert. The advertising can make you believe that you need something that in fact, you really don’t need it at all.

Check prices

The Broadband suppliers are regularly updating and changing their offers. You may have seen an advertisement somewhere, either on the radio or TV, but you mustn’t assume that is the offer you will get. Always check the latest deals and prices before signing up. Even better, read what other people have to say about their personal experiences on various review sites such as: Internet service provider (ISP) offers website where you can find consumer reviewing broadband connections.

Also, you may want to consider checking out the latest deals when it’s time to renew your contract. There is a good chance that you could find a better ISP than the one you currently have, and there are always special offers on for people making the switch to a new one.

Shopping Online – Is it always cheaper?

Shopping online makes you wonder if we will ever have to leave home to do our shopping again, but for various reasons there are still people who want to go out and do their shopping in the stores. Let’s have a look at the advantages and disadvantages of high street vs. online shopping.

Most products can be found online cheaper than that of the high street; this is due to the fact that there are much lower overheads. On the other hand, some high street shops may have in store offers and clearance deals that you can only buy if you visit the store. You can even get cashback rewards on your online shopping without paying any extra money by using a Cashback shopping website.

It would be very time consuming if you tried to visit every high street shop to compare shop prices, whereas if you use an online price comparison website, you can compare the products as well as the prices in no time, to find the best deal.

The face-to-face interaction with another human being is a huge plus of high street shopping, because if something goes wrong, you can always return your goods to the shop. However, this should not be a major problem if you chose a reliable online retailer that offers a no quibble exchange policy/guarantee.

Using online Discount Vouchers and Coupons to save money

A lot of the online shops and services offer discount vouchers or coupons, you may have noticed a box at the checkout stage asking for a promotion or a voucher code. With online shoppers becoming smarter at finding the best offers and the stiff competition between the retailers, it is probably worth checking if you can get some money off the price by using a discount voucher for that shop. So how do you find these discount voucher codes when you want to buy something online?

You can find these codes on free stuff sites or the Internet shopping forums. There are many of these sites online; you just have to search for them. Always make sure you have found the right site, offering the latest up to date voucher codes. After checking the expiry dates, try to use it at the check out, making sure you get a new total with the discounted money off. Sometimes the voucher codes have expired or may not work and you might have to try a different one.

One thing you need to make sure when you put these discount voucher and coupon codes in the check out is to see if there is an “update price” or a similar button so it applies the discount to your purchase.

If you regularly shop online, you can join one of the established ‘freebie’ websites, where you can find the latest discounts, coupon codes and free stuff. Don’t go on a sign up spree, and be sure you only sign up to reliable sites, as some websites can bombard you with emails, if they don’t have a proper privacy policy.

Wireless Broadband Internet – What should you know

Whether at home or away, cheap wireless broadband Internet has made life so much easier for laptop users. Once you have gotten used to a wireless connection, you may never want to use wires again! But are there any problems with wireless connections?

It is hard to live with a dial-up Internet connection these days with the image and file sharing websites growing in popularity more and more. Even if you live in a remote area, there are ways of finding a cheap broadband ISP. Many mobile companies offer facilities for you to connect via mobile phones and you can even get broadband via satellite.

The prices of wireless broadband modems are dropping and these days you can usually find a decent router for less than £50 in most shops. Some cheap broadband deals offer a free modem when signing up to a contract.

Security is the main problem you can encounter with a wireless connection compared to a wired broadband network. You will need to make sure the connection is encrypted otherwise other people can easily use your connection. Most routers and ISP modems come with instructions of how to do the encryption, and it is not as hard to do as it sounds. If you need any assistance, your broadband internet provider will be able to guide you through it.

One of the common mistakes people do when they go wireless is to buy the cheapest available equipment, without doing the homework. It is always worth reading broadband consumer reviews and guides on wireless equipment before you part with your money. Remember, reliability is more important than saving a few pennies on the equipment.
