Tips and tricks to consider when choosing a broadband deal
Firstly, consider what you need from your broadband provider. Do you need a landline, unlimited data usage, speedy (so you have uninterrupted zoom calls), or does the contract length impact your choice? Without obviously forgetting the price per month, so you can budget this into your spending.

Check the coverage in your area: check which packages and providers are available for your area.
Some contracts are still 12 months, however, some companies are pushing towards an 18-month contract. So how long do you need it for? You could be charged additional fees to leave your contract early!
Some companies now offer telephone and landline thrown in, but is this really what you need? Don’t be fooled by the free NOWTV, or Skygo packages. Sometimes this is a hook to keep you in an 18-month contract! But a bundle may save you money if you normally buy these additional packages on top!
Some providers throw in a free broadband HUb, some you’ll have to return at the end of your contract. Other providers will need particular ethernet connections to plug in the hub; check you have these first!
When issues arise, you’ll likely be in contact with your provider. Make sure they have a solid reputation for their customer service, so that your concerns are dealt with properly along the way.
