The new service can also help home movers save money at a time when every penny counts. According to Simplifydigital, who recently commissioned a YouGov poll**, an average of 160 can be saved per year from opting for a digital bundle of two or more services from the same broadband, telephone and digital TV provider. This is more than enough for most users to offset the recent energy price rises (British Gas put up bills by an average of 139 in Jan 08).
Charlie Ponsonby, CEO of Simplifydigital commented on the new service by saying:
“Moving home is the perfect time to reassess all household expenses and there are big savings to be had on digital TV, broadband and telephone services if the right deal is chosen. Until now there has been no place to go for impartial advice and with the mass of conflicting and confusing advertising customers can miss out on the ideal service. The Simplifydigital team is able to search through over 530,000 different package options on a database in a matter of minutes, which would take the average person over two years if they took two minutes to review each one.”
