It is now much easier to get the best broadband offerings, as well as TV and phone, according to the new Ofcom rules that are now in effect. That means a massive 20 million people could benefit, and one of you could be.
The new requirements require broadband, television and telephone providers to send important information to customers when their contracts end.
After that, they must continue to send details regularly. So expect communication to go one step further from today.
Around one in seven people do not know whether they are still bound by a contract after their end. The new rules are designed to help people who are now being told clearly that they have a new deal and who are also finding the best options for them. For example, offers that offer half-price rent in the first six months before the promotion will become more expensive in the long run after the contract ends.
"Millions Pay More Than Necessary"
New Notifications include details of the end of contract, the price previously paid, service changes, the price paid at the end of the contract, information about the notice period, and the best offers and prices for new customers.
Lindsey Fussell, Ofcom's Director of Consumer Group, said: “Millions of people are currently out of contracts and paying more than necessary. These new rules make it easier to get a better offer.
“However, you don't have to wait to hear from your provider. Just a few minutes of your time today could save you hundreds of pounds. “
