Cable companies try to push bundled services to consumers for various reasons. First and foremost, doing so brings in more profits because customers sign up for more services. They justify these packages by saying that customers will save money. Phone and Internet packages are incredibly popular these days. Still, more and more households are ditching their landline services. No household needs a landline with smartphones sitting nearby.
Such bundles will result in savings for households that utilize both landline and Internet services. However, a household shouldn’t add a landline to reap savings associated with a bundle. Chances are high that those customers won’t actually save money compared to opting for Internet service by itself. Consumers need to exercise some caution in signing up for bundled services. In the end, bundles aren’t guaranteed to save every single customer money each time.
