How to reduce your phone and broadband bills
Tips on reducing your phone bill
We know that our customers spend a lot of money on mobile phone bills. That's why we would like to help you understand ways in which you could be more savvy with your mobile tariff and maybe help you save some money where you can.
Check your monthly data usage
According to new analysis from Citizens Advice, 71% of SIM-only plan customers overpay for the data that they don't use and could save approximately £63 per year by switching to a cheaper deal. Why not check out if you're overpaying for unused data?
Your plan could be altered next month and save you money.
You could find cheaper deals online
Customers who purchase a mobile contract in store were found to waste 4.2GB on average, whilst those that buy online only waste 2.6GB according to research done by Citizens Advice.
It couldn't hurt to shop around before you buy.
Test your powers of persuasion
68% of mobile customers were successful in negotiating a better deal, according to moneysavingexpert.com.
Check out some of their success stories for inspiration.
Getting the right broadband deal for you
If you've been with your Broadband provider for a while it's likely any introductory offers will have ended and you might be paying more than you need to, or if your broadband is no longer up to scratch for home working and Netflix marathons switching could help you get more for your money.
When searching for the best package, first think about what's right for you. Consider what you’ll be using the internet for and any extras you’d like to get.
With Uswitch you can compare a wide range of broadband deals, just enter your postcode and then filter by speed, price and provider to help you make the most suitable choice for you.

When clicking ‘Compare Broadband deals’ you’ll be taken to the Uswitch website, any subsequent dealings are between you and Uswitch and that neither Royal Bank of Scotland nor any member of the NatWest Group will be party to or responsible for those dealings.
