Internet use is currently not associated with very high costs. However, if your bill is too high anyway, you should look for ways to save money. How to reduce the cost of using the Internet?
In homes, we usually have fiber optic Internet, sometimes also radio. On mobile devices, we use the mobile Internet provided by mobile phone operators. Contrary to appearances, internet prices in Poland are not so high, but it is always better to pay less than more.
1. Check the offers of the competition
One of the most effective ways to reduce Internet costs is to switch to an operator who can simply offer us lower prices. Currently, we have many Internet offers to choose from, but we must remember that in the case of the fixed-line Internet, we will not use any operator’s services in all places.
We can go to the competition when the contract ends, but also when there are any changes in the contract – then a “window” appears and we can go to another operator without any consequences. Otherwise, we would have to pay a considerable penalty!
2. Lower Internet speed
This advice is only for those people who do not need a very fast Internet, for example playing games, streaming, watching movies online. Then it is not worth changing the speed, because it will affect the comfort of using the network.
However, if we do not use such possibilities, making a reduction in Internet speed when signing a new contract may also be a good solution. We usually save on the account from a dozen to even several dozen zlotys.
3. Do not use the mobile Internet as often
We pay the most for using the mobile Internet. Then we have to take into account considerable costs, and we are also accounted for from the data consumption, so the more we use the network, the higher the bill we pay.
A simple solution is to reduce the consumption of data within the mobile Internet. Do not use them over your data package, because buying a new one will be associated with an additional, often quite a high cost. We can also choose a cheaper package and reduce consumption – to do this, you can also set up data monitoring on your phone to know when to release.
4. Sign contracts for various services
Finally, it is worth mentioning one more method to reduce bills, namely the so-called cross-selling. In this case, we are talking about ordering different services from one operator, for example, landline internet, subscription for telephone and television.
Packages offered by operators allow us to obtain additional financial benefits than when we would buy these services separately. As a result, the internet can also cost us less.
In summary, there are many ways to reduce the cost of Internet use – both stationary and mobile. When you want to reduce your bills, it’s worth remembering our proposals!
