Holly Cox (nee Niblett), Head of Digital
Holly is an expert on broadband, mobile and TV and the issues that impact customers, like poor broadband in rural areas, and how Ofcom regulation affects competition. With broadband increasingly being recognised as an essential utility, Holly is committed to informing people about how they can get the best possible deal, and building the best comparison service to make it easy for them.
Holly has also commented on how COVID-19 has increased demand for faster broadband packages (including the rollout of fibre broadband this year); what the planned O2-Virgin Media merger will mean for customers and broadband provision across the UK.
Holly Cox commenting on...
“When you start comparing with us, we’ll automatically show you broadband deals that include a phone line. This is because broadband and phone packages are often cheaper than broadband-only deals.
If you want to compare the difference between broadband packages and separate broadband-only deals, simply choose ‘Deals without a phone line’ in the filter options.”
Fibre broadband deals
"If you live in anything like a modern home, chances are you're going to want fibre broadband. Families with lots of users, or if you're into lots of streaming, downloading or online gaming, will need broadband with plenty of speed and bandwidth to keep up with your busy lives. Making the jump from ADSL to fibre is a game changer."
Broadband & phone deals
"Most of us use our mobiles as our main way of making calls. But even if you never use your landline, you’re likely to find you can make savings by bundling it with your broadband rather than looking for a separate broadband package. And when you compare with us, you can find deals that include UK mobile numbers in your landline phone package."
Mobile phone deals
"The mobile phone market is very competitive, especially when the latest phones get released. Make sure you shop around and compare deals to avoid paying more than you need to, because your loyalty could cost you. If you're looking for a SIM-only deal, make sure you have a phone that's unlocked, because you'll have access to deals from every network, opening you up to far more options."
“iPhone users have enjoyed the benefits of high-spec tech and entertaining apps for over a decade now. Unique features such as FaceTime, Face ID and Apple Pay are simple to use and neatly packaged in high-quality handsets. Look out for data allowances that suit your needs.”
“BT is one of the leading, premium brand, TV and phone providers in the UK. They might not be the cheapest, but they do offer a lot of flexibility. You can pick and choose exactly what you need (and pay for) from them, whether that’s super-fast broadband, entertainment TV, live sport or data-only SIM deals.”
Unlimited data plans
"An unlimited data deal gives you the additional benefit of being able to use your phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot. To find the right deal for you, shop around and compare unlimited deals with plans that have a large data allowance."
Virgin media broadband
“So many people are paying over the odds for their broadband. It’s important to keep an eye on your contract end date, so you can switch and save money. Compare broadband deals to ensure you're paying the right price and getting the speed you need.”
Huawei mobile phones
“The international political dispute that means Huawei’s new phones can’t run Google apps will undoubtedly have an effect on sales. But it also means you may be able to take advantage of some excellent deals and freebies that are available with Huawei phones, to encourage UK customers to buy.”
Broadband, phone and TV deals
"Bundling your broadband, TV and phone makes sense for several reasons. You could potentially save money with a bundle discount, but it can also save you hassle and life admin, because you'll only have one provider to deal with. If this is important to you, a bundle is well worth considering. Just don't get too comfortable with that one provider, as you can end up paying more for remaining loyal. Switching provider is one of the best ways to save money on your digital bundle... and that's where we come in."
Broadband and TV packages
“With so many competitive deals out there, it’s more important than ever to shop around and compare. When you compare TV and broadband packages through us, we’ll give you a clear idea of costs, both monthly and overall. We’ll also point out the important features to make it even easier to choose a deal that’s right for you.”
Samsung mobile phone deals
“Samsung has been at the forefront of mobile phone technology for over a decade now and continues to go from strength to strength. Consider whether you want the latest model, as you may need to make an upfront payment, before your contract starts, to help pay off the cost of an expensive handset.”
TalkTalk broadband deals
“One of the UK’s most popular providers, TalkTalk provides simple, affordable broadband packages with flexible TV and phone plans. Unlimited broadband means the whole family should be able to use the internet as much as they like without having to worry.”

“When you’ve found out what broadband deals are available in your area, it’s also worth considering packages. If you’re a movie, sports and TV fan, a bundled broadband, phone and TV package could work out cheaper than separate products.
“Some providers even offer discounts if you bundle broadband with your phone and TV. You’d also have the convenience of everything coming under one monthly bill.”
