For consumers it can be convenient to deal with one supplier for all services and it’s possible to get a better deal because you are placing all your business with one company.

As with any bundled service it's always worth checking that you can't save money by taking the services separately although this is unlikely and it's also a good idea to be realistic about your needs. With a bundled package you are paying for services that you might not want or need.
The other factor to remember about a bundled package is that your eggs are all in one basket so if you have any issues with the supplier it impacts on all your services.
