Ernest Doku, broadband expert at Uswitch.com, agreed with Martin Lewis and said it’s really important that more is done to make people aware of these social tariffs.
He said: “At a time when the cost of living is soaring for many households, more need to be aware of the deals that might be available to those customers who struggle the most.
“With almost three quarters of people having never heard of social tariffs, it’s not surprising that take-up isn’t as high as it could be.
“Social tariffs are an important way for financially vulnerable households to get a decent service at a lower cost, and providers like BT, Virgin Media, Community Fibre, Hyperoptic and others are doing their bit to help out.”
