Michael Phillips, product director at, commented: "As an Ofcom-accredited price comparison site, we are committed to securing the cheapest possible deals for visitors to our website. There have been a number of line rental price rises from major providers over the past year with more undoubtedly on the way, so households need to review their monthly bills carefully to see where costs can be reined in.

"Line rental, in particular, is often overlooked in this respect. The Primus Saver package offers excellent value; households who haven't switched in the last year should compare prices to ensure they are still on the cheapest deal." top tips on cutting your phone bills:

1. Pay by direct debit - Nearly all providers discourage payment other than direct debit and impose charges of anything up to £5 per month for dealing with cheques.  However, The Post Office accepts payment by various means with no additional charges.

2. Go for paperless billing - Some providers offer useful savings if you receive your statements online, not by post. You'll also be doing your bit for the environment.

3. Check the small print - If you're tied to a 12 or 18 month contract, you may be faced with exit fees if you want to switch before the contract term ends, but new rules may mean this is less of a problem going forward. So check any fees and switch to a better deal.
