Data Charges on home Broadband

One of the downsides many users at home face are hidden charges, well in most cases they are not hidden, but simply not realised by the customer.

There is evidence that many people do not realise or understand the implication of using more data than their deal provides with huge charges being applied after the fact.

Come the middle to end of January, all will be revealed with punitive charges appearing on bills up and down the country.

With massive downloads over the Christmas and New Year period as families spend time at home, often data allowances in some of the cheaper deals are simply not enough with limits of 2Gb, 10Gb and 20Gb for many of the popular packages. Downloading HD films can eat 4 or more Gb of data in one hit, download a few in a month and suddenly your data allowance is gone. Use iPlayer or similar, and that creates a double wammy of data usage.

Maybe you have three or more laptops and a number tablets too – these all eat data and come out of your allowance.

It gets worse with some providers terminating your deal and thus leaving you without a connection.

With many more devices now using data in the home, previous usage levels may not deliver in the correct way during 2013, so perhaps now is the right time to do a complete review.

Utility Warehouse as standard offers 40Gb a month, and for their Unlimited Package, just charge a set few pounds more for peace of mind and no heavy drain on the bank account.

Who do you know who has been hit with an extra £20, £50 or higher charge that would like a better deal, often faster and with UK based support?

Deals can be found here: Go-Fast and start at £2.99 per month plus line rental (T & Cs apply), and the new service, Ultra with up to 80Mbps is available in some parts of the country – there is an online checker for all services, simply add your phone number and postcode, and the system will tell you what is available for your locale in a couple of minutes.

New lines can also be installed, thus helping cable users and the install cost starts at £24 for a single line. Please ask for details?

Business Continuity

A whole industry has grown up around these two words.

An area of specialism for Combyne Group too.

What happens when your internet connection falls over?

A simple and cost effective solution is mobile broadband – two flavours:
£12 + vat per month for up to 3.6 meg with 1GB of data 18 month deal, or
£15 + Vat per month for up to 4.5 meg with 3 Gb of data 24 month deal

This can of course be used when you are out and about doing business on the move or when in areas without WiFi.

How about those phone calls, when your line(s) go down.

A simple solution is to have the non-geographic number, you already have in place diverted to either a mobile or professional call answering service.

Combyne Group can supply all three, and always recommends NGNs to all businesses.

These are hugely cost effective solutions and can be the difference between a business surviving or going bust.
