How do I choose a landline phone supplier?
As an independent regulator, Ofcom cannot list the ‘cheapest’ phone companies or the ones that provide the ‘best’ all-round service.
However, a good way to find out what deals are available is to check out the price comparison sites which have been accredited by Ofcom.
The Ofcom price accreditation scheme logo is awarded to websites that have had their price comparison services put through a rigorous independent audit.
The audit checks whether the information provided to consumers is accessible, accurate, transparent, comprehensive and up to date.
Five sites have been accredited so far and two of those allow you to search for landline deals:
Homephonechoices.co.uk (For standalone home phone packages and those with broadband and/or digital TV.
SimplifyDigital (For digital TV, landline and broadband services)
