Everyone’s talking about reining in cowboy energy suppliers. But what about broadband?
Right now, you are almost certainly being robbed blind… by the Broadbandits!
1. Broadband suppliers can put your price up any time they like – and that ain’t right
In broadband, contracts don’t mean diddly. Broadbandits can change your price whenever, regardless.
Customers joining one big supplier last year had no fewer than TWO price rises – an increase of £60! 
2. Prices are a RIP-OFF
The energy industry is renowned for charging an exploitative ‘loyalty tax’ to its current customers. It turns out it’s even worse for broadband, as companies like BT charge loyal customers up to a scandalous 67% more than their new joiners. 
Essentially what this means is you could pay almost £200 more than your neighbour for the same internet access. 
People who switch their broadband save big, while other people get totally ripped off.
3. There are a lot of sneaky charges
Some broadband companies give you 25GB of data per month, knowing full well that you use more. 
You also sign up for a specific deal with a shiny price tag, only to find there’s added costs lumped on at the last minute, such as paying for the router or engineering costs.
Broadbandits are also known for tripping you up with different charges for calling different numbers at different times.
4. You DON’T get what you pay for
Perhaps the most irritating part of it all is the fact that the service you’re getting isn’t even worth your money!
The big suppliers like Sky and BT consistently score poorly for rubbish customer treatment, snail-like speeds and poor reliability .
What can we do about it?
Internet access is crucial now to daily life. From keeping in touch with family, to doing our weekly shop, to helping our kids with their homework, making us pay over the odds for such an essential service is down right wrong.
Broadband rip-off tactics is the scandal no-one is talking about.
THIS is why the Big Deal’s número uno priority is broadband. We’ve been campaigning for an investigation into a broadband price cap, to stop customers paying over the odds for their wifi.

We’ve also set our sights on getting our Big Deal members a better kind of broadband deal.
We’ve negotiated an extra special broadband deal with Zen Internet, Which?’s Recommended Provider!

 Correct as per the latest Ofcom Connected Nations report 2016 stated the average monthly data usage per household was 132GB on BB and 169 GB on Fibre – this continues to grow year-on-year.
