Broadband Expert Study Expects U.S. Consumers Could Save Up to $396 Million by Switching Internet Providers in 2012
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
Miami-based Broadband Expert is projecting it will save consumers at least $ 15 Million per year by switching internet service providers. However, a Broadband Expert survey of U.S. broadband usage concludes that a typical American family could easily save $ 60 a year on broadband usage and if just 10% of the US population were to switch the potential savings would rise to $ 396M per year. Rob Webber, CEO of Broadband Expert, says this is based on a Broadband Expert study of U.S. Broadband rates and services. Webber adds, “Broadband Expert estimates at least that 250,000 consumers will use its service to switch internet, TV and phone services in 2012.”
Broadband Expert allows consumers to check the availability of cable, satellite and Internet providers in their area, compare prices and read reviews by other consumers. Webber says, ?This allows the consumer to make a more informed purchase and save money where there is a choice between a number of different providers.? The typical consumer spends countless hours researching consumer electronics? specs and details but spent little to no time researching broadband services.
“The majority of the electronic devices found at the CES show require Broadband service to function, hence it is vital to make sure that you have the best broadband service available in your area,” said Webber. Broadband Expert provides this service free of charge to consumers but earns a fee from service providers when a consumer signs up to a new service.
Whilst not all US consumers have the choice between more than one internet provider Webber says the potential savings for consumers are huge. With an estimated 66 million households* with a broadband connection and a typical 2.5Mbs ? 15Mbps broadband connection costing $ 38.11 per month according to the OECD?s latest report if even 10% of those households were to switch to a cheaper provider saving $ 5 per month this represents a saving of $ 396 million dollars per year.
Webber explains that he sees switching becoming a growing market as he predicts the number of services available to consumers is likely to increase. Webber says that, ?the amount of choice between providers, and in some cases there is none, differs dependent on where you live. Ultimately choice and competition between providers is healthy for the consumer and as this increases, as we predict it will, Broadband Expert will be well positioned to help consumers switch providers and save money?.
Broadband Expert Survey
Broadband Expert is launching a consumer survey to allow American consumers to rate their current service providers as well as the importance of having an apples-to-apples comparison site of different plans. Webber adds that Broadband Expert will also give-away 12-months of free service as an incentive to take the survey http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/broadbandexpert.

Coming off its most successful year ever, the Foreclosure.com scholarship program will once again reward five college students with money to put toward their studies who can best provide a solution(s) to its latest essay topic for 2012.
The subject of the 2012 Foreclosure.com Scholarship Program is as follows:
?What creative solutions, programs and/or initiatives to stimulate the United States housing market, as well as to turn the foreclosures tide, must a presidential candidate outline/promise to earn your vote? Feel free to include your very own original stimulus plan and/or ideas in your response, which can also be used to enhance existing platforms from candidates and/or other influential thought leaders.?
Foreclosure.com, which received a record-setting amount of entries (nearly 10,000) from students throughout the nation during its scholarship program in 2011 alone, will accept written essays/plans (800-word minimum, 2,000-word maximum) through its website (http://www.foreclosure.com/scholarship) from Jan. 1, 2012, to Dec. 1, 2012.
Five winners will be selected by a third-party panel of judges at the conclusion of the contest and will share $ 9,000 in allotted scholarship funds. The top prize is a $ 5,000 scholarship and four $ 1,000 grants will be awarded to the runners up.
?This scholarship program has impacted the lives of the recipients, enhancing their career goals and educational pursuits,? said Linda Yates, Foreclosure.com Director of Education. ?With scholarships lessening and disappearing this scholarship has been growing — our applications have increased year-over-year and the competition has grown more fierce. We look forward to continuing that trend in 2012.?
In addition to the five cash prizes in the form of scholarships, totaling $ 9,000, these solutions will be featured on Foreclosure.com for the entire year. All students must read and agree to the scholarship rules, which are located on the Foreclosure.com contest page (http://www.foreclosure.com/scholarship), before submitting their entries for review.
?It?s an election year, so we wanted the topic to reflect the thoughts and concerns of our nation,? said Yates. ?The housing industry is still trying to recover and the creativity of college students across the nation may be the catalysts to provide solutions that will help the entire economy.?
Foreclosure.com introduced its scholarship program in 2009. Since that time, the company has (or will) award(ed) 15 deserving college students throughout the United States with a total of $ 27,000 in scholarship money.
