Speaking in the programme, Anna explained: “Most of us pay between £30 and £40 a month on broadband but you could be getting it for half that price.
“If you’re still in contract just ring up your supplier and haggle. Believe me, it works.”
She also offered some insight into how to get a better deal for online subscriptions.
Online subscriptions include the likes of online television streaming services such as Netflix or Now TV, as well as retailers like Amazon Prime and other online shopping “member” services.
