Broadband only packages include products that offer users an internet connection without additional services like TV or a home phone. Many internet users may find they don't require these additional services, therefore having to pay for them seems unnecessary for their needs.
With the broadband only packages available internet users pay only for what they need, hence the term; broadband only.
Advantages of broadband only packages
Perhaps the most appealing aspect of a broadband only package is its pricing. Because one is only required to pay for broadband only, additional expenses that are often part of packages offered by various other broadband suppliers are excluded.
However, broadband deals can also include a home telephone if the user requires one. These packages are most commonly sought by internet users, as most homes and offices do make use of telephones and fax lines. There are a number of packages available to consumers, and in most cases they offer exactly what the consumer needs.
