Many suppliers do not move their customers onto newer, cheaper tariffs when their minimum contract term expires meaning that they are paying a premium for their service.

It's simple enough using a broadband comparison table such as is available at to look up your current supplier to see if their prices for new customers are more competitive.

“Often if you contact your current supplier and ask to be moved to their new prices in return for signing up for a minimum term again you will find they'll usually agree” adds Dawson.

Of course checking the comparison tables regularly you may find an alternative supplier offering better prices and features, and moving supplier is easy with the Migration Authorisation Code (MAC) system. Simply call your supplier and ask for your MAC code and then provide this to the new supplier when you sign up online and the transition will be handled smoothly behind the scenes.
