How to Find the Best Broadband Deals Including Line Rental

There's lots of different ways to connect to the internet; mobile broadband, fibre optic broadband as well as the tried and trusted landline broadband option.

Mobile broadband can be cheap but download limits can be stingy and you need a good signal to get a decent speed. Fibre optic cable broadband connections are undoubtedly amongst the best available but can be pricey and only a small proportion of the UK has the necessary cables in their area.

Little wonder perhaps that getting cheap line rental and broadband together remains one of the most popular combinations.

We take a look at how to compare broadband and line rental packages and what factors to take into account.

What are the best deals for line rental and broadband?

When carrying out a broadband and phone packages comparison it's easy to simply plump for the provider which comes up with the lowest monthly price. However, the cheapest landline and broadband offers may not be the ones to save you the most money when all is said and done.

Some other providers will charge you a set up fee and others may ask you to pay for your own equipment. Getting routers and the other necessary kit can work out expensive so make sure you check what's included before signing on the dotted line. 

Introductory discounts can knock down the headline price, but may be less competitive in the long run if the price thereafter is significantly more. 

The simple way around this is to compare broadband deals on total price for the first and subsequent years so you know what you're getting and exactly how much you'll pay for it.

If you want digital TV too, adding this to the package can work out as the cheapest broadband and line rental you can get overall. However, don't be tempted into signing up if you weren't planning on adding the TV package too as overall you will be spending more money on something you don't really need.

Comparing broadband and line rental offers

You may well find that there are plenty of deals in the market with providers offering incentives such as free line rental for a certain period. But whilst it's great to bag a bargain, don't be tempted to overlook some of the essential features on any of the broadband and landline deals in return for a low price.

When you compare cheap broadband and line rental deals, make sure you take a look at some of the features too.

For example; download allowance. If the download allowance is not sufficient for the needs of the household, you could end up paying more for everything you use. This can work out much more costly in the long term and you could find the provider even forces you onto a more expensive contract.

Similarly, connection speed, inclusive call allowance and contract length are also must-checks before you sign on the dotted line.

To get truly cheap broadband and landline, it's vital to think about how you will be using the connection and also how other people in your household will use it as well.

If everyone is online at the same time, telephone line rental and broadband packages with a faster connection speed will be an important factor. This need is amplified even further if anyone in the house likes to stream films or media, or game online.

The best deals on landline and broadband can typically be found online and some broadband deals including line rental offer a more permanent discount if you pay for line rental upfront. This can be a small compromise to make for a much more generous package at a fraction of the cost.
