Can broadband get cheaper than Primus Saver’s £1.20/month package?

Budget broadband provider Primus Saver has halved the cost of its cheapest rival with a £1.20/month 20GB package.

That’s the headline price: you’ll also be paying £12.79/month line rental and there’s a £20 activation charge, making a total of £15.66/month over the first year.

It’s on a 12-month minimum contract on up-to-24Mbps ADSL 2+, with free UK evening and weekend calls, free UK customer service, a wireless router and itemised electronic billing.
