Broadband users can save a bundle - more than £200 a year

Broadband internet access has become almost a necessity in many British homes.

But a third of those households with broadband connections are missing out on savings of up to £210 a year by failing to take advantage of so-called bundled packages that include digital television and home phone services.

New research from comparison website Broadbandchoices shows that 33% of broadband users do not take advantage of bundled packages, even though those customers on plans of this kind are generally happier that they are getting value for money than those with separate deals.
