UK SUPERMARKET GIANT Tesco has launched a broadband internet and home phone package for a bargain basement £2.50 per month.
The exclusive deal is open to the firm's Clubcard members and will offer unlimited broadband on a 12 month contract. The price is £2.50 monthly for 12 months but will then rise to £6.50 per month.
There's no set-up fee for the 12 month contract and unlimited evening and weekend landline calls and a wireless router are also included. Downloads are called 'unlimited' but not really, as a fair usage policy is attached.
Tesco said, "With so many broadband offers and deals out there, it can feel like it's all just too complicated finding the one that's right for you. That's why we offer simple packages which are great for emailing, downloading music and movies, online shopping, sharing photos among many other things."
Line rental through Tesco is the only catch, for a slightly above average £13.75 per month. This brings the total to a very reasonable monthly cost of £16.25. A bonus is that Clubcard members will earn 3 points for each pound they spend and furthermore may optionally pay for the package with Clubcard rewards.
Talk Talk and Plusnet have similar deals offering half price broadband at £3.25 and £3.24, respectively, for the first 12 months, on top of the separate landline rental cost. µ
