Four in ten punters say they would be more likely to switch telephone provider if offered a bundled package of fixed line, broadband and mobile, according to research commission by One.Tel.

Which is a spookily amazing coincidence because - can you believe this - One.Tel has announced it is to bundle these products to its punters.

For £29.99 a month, One.Tel - which is part of the giant Centrica Telecommunications group - is offering customers uncapped 512k broadband and an all-inclusive UK calls package. For £39.99 a month, One.Tel is chucking in an extra "mobile" call package offering punters 60 free minutes a month to mobile phone networks.

In both cases, customers would also have to cough up £10.50 a month for BT line rental. One.Tel says both bundled packages are cheaper than buying the products separately.

Don't know about you, but I sill can't get that coincidence out of my mind. Who'd have thought it? ®
