Company Summary

One Big Switch creates consumer engagement around its mission, to help Australians pay less for their regular household bills. We use the negotiating power of a growing membership to negotiate exclusive group discounts on essentials (mortgages, power bills, broadband etc) and we strive to make the switching process easier.

We launched in August 2011 and had 40,000 people join in the first two weeks.
