Customer satisfaction

One of the biggest factors that should influence your criteria for shortlisting providers is the customer satisfaction reports for each provider.

The phone business is too crowded now with competitors and the way out for a few of them is to bundle up broadband and phone services together.

However, Sky Phone has a different offer with regard to unlimited downloads. VOIP services Why not just take a broadband connection and talk via VOIP? This way you get charged only for your internet connection while you pay charges as per VOIP rates which are cheaper if you make most of your calls abroad. Vonage.co.uk is a great VOIP business phone service.

Going the cheap route in the broadband and phone business may not be the best way out since you will have to sacrifice on a few things. For example, the Sky services are quite affordable. However, opting for TalkTalk will guarantee you a great service due to their impeccable customer satisfaction record of 93%!
