What is the cheapest broadband in Laois?
There are a few factors that will affect how much you pay for a broadband package, for example:
- The broadband speed
- The type of broadband e.g. fibre or ADSL
- The type of package e.g. broadband-only or broadband, phone & TV
- The contract length e.g. 12 or 18 months
- The introductory discount period
What type of broadband package should you get?
This will depend on your lifestyle, for example, whether you enjoy TV as entertainment, and how you make calls.
For example, if you prefer nights out to nights in, and you only use your mobile for calls, you may not need a TV package or a home phone. Here are the main types of broadband packages:
Broadband-only: If you just want a broadband service, a broadband-only deal could be for you. If you’re at all tempted by a phone or TV, compare deals and see what you could save by bundling.
Broadband & home phone: Adding a home phone to your broadband package often works out no more expensive than just having broadband. Compare call plans to see what type of calls are included.
Broadband, phone & TV: It will usually work out much cheaper bundling these services together with one provider, and you’ll have just one monthly payment. Check what calls and TV channels are included and for any extras you may want e.g. Sky Cinema or multi-room viewing.
