What’s a bundle package?

A bundle is a group of electronic services offered at a discounted rate, including internet, TV, phone, and gaming. Bundles offer lower prices, ease of billing, and assistance, but may not be cost-effective for all consumers and can result in service drops.

Also known as a bundle, a bundle is a defined group of electronic services offered to customers at a single discount rate. Such a package can include services such as high-speed Internet access, cable or satellite television, cell phone service, landline service, and even gaming options. Many people find these packages to be a great way to save money, while others feel that the potential drawbacks of a package outweigh the benefits.

Many different companies today offer the option of a bundle. Internet service providers, cable systems, and even phone services will likely have at least a few package options to choose from. Some services have prepackaged packages with a specific number and type of services included. Other companies allow consumers to create their own custom packages, including only those services that the individual customer wants to receive.

One of the main benefits of a bundle is the lower price for the overall collection of included services. A typical package, including cable television, home phone service, and high-speed Internet service, can cost between thirty and fifty percent less than buying these three services separately. Over the course of a year, this can mean significant savings for the family.

Another advantage of the bundle is the ease of billing. All services included in the package are accounted for in a monthly bill. This means the customer has just one invoice to manage, rather than dealing with multiple individual monthly obligations. For some consumers, this means they are less likely to neglect one of those monthly bills and possibly experience a service outage or incur late fees.

Another often-mentioned benefit to the included package is the ease of getting assistance when needed. Instead of having multiple providers to call when moving to a new location, a call to the company providing the bundle makes it possible to arrange for the transfer of all services to the new address, as well as the termination of services at the old residence. In this perspective, the bundle can save a lot of time and money.

Not everyone agrees that a bundle is the way to go. Depending on the consumer’s needs, it may cost more to purchase bundled services than individual services with different providers. For example, a consumer who uses a cell phone infrequently may actually pay less by purchasing prepaid cell service rather than bundling it with home service and cable.

There is also some concern about service drops with a bundled package. By using the same provider for several different services, there is a higher chance that all these services will be affected in case the provider faces some kind of operational or network issue. This is particularly true when the home phone, cable, and Internet access are provided over a single cable to the home. Until service is restored, the consumer cannot browse online, watch television or make phone calls using the landline. Fortunately, many companies that offer bundled packages have security features that greatly minimize the potential for this type of problem.
