    Which provider for TV/mobile/phone/internet? 16th Apr 17 at 9:55 PM
    After living abroad for many years we are now back in England and things have changed a bit since we last lived here. When we move into our house we are obviously going to need to sort these out and we are looking for the cheapest options as we will be on minimum wages.

    What is everyone's recommendation?

    Any help gratefully recieved.
    The only stupid question is an unasked one
    I now live in a country that is 4 hours ahead of the UK so you may now find I post at weird times

    There is no universal cheapest telephony, because broadband is exchange specific. Have a look at samknows to see what is available on your exchange. The main MSE board has excellent guides to all these categories, as well as mobiles.
    There is no need to pay anything for TV unless you want subscription channels, use Freeview or Freesat for no charge.

    For mobile phones buy a cheap but decent handset and get a sim only deal from the network with the best signal, you can find out the best signal by using a payg sim from the 4 main networks then see if the virtual networks are cheaper for what you need.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.
