Social tariffs are low-cost broadband deals offered to customers on benefits and cost about £15 a month.

The average customer could save £140 a year by switching to one of these deals, consumer group Which? says.

Broadband providers are not obliged to offer social tariffs, but have been encouraged to by the government and Ofcom.

Around four million UK households could be getting cheaper broadband, but only around 150,000 people are currently on one, according to Ofcom.

All of those in receipt of Universal Credit are eligible, although some providers extend eligibility to those in receipt of other benefits, such as Pension Credit, Employment and Support Allowance, Jobseeker"s Allowance and Income Support.

Currently, social tariffs are offered by companies including BT, Virgin, KCOM, Hyperoptic, G Network, NOW, Sky and Community Fibre, with prices ranging between £10 and £25 a month.
