BT to ruin your Christmas

bt-logo BT are raising their prices in December. Merry Christmas!

That's right. The telco have announced that they are to raise the prices of their phone and broadband by 6.5%

The price rise has been - surprise - defended by BT, claiming that most customers are on inclusive packages, and that bills have actually decreased by 14% in the last half decade.

It will increase the line rental for direct debit customers by 6.25% to £16.99, and the rate for calling UK landlines by 6.44%.

And also, set-up fees for landline calls, residential calls, to the speaking clock and call return charges will also increase for some or all customers.

BT's option for low-incomes, BT Basic, will stay the same at £5.10 a month with a call allowance.

Of course, they're not nearly as keen to have an option where you can get a fibre optic broadband connection without the need for a landline (as a lot of people just rely on their mobiles these days), but there you go.

    Ditched those cunts long ago when they raised their charge from 12 something to 15 quid. Landlines are a waist of money anyway! 8 out of 10 calls we get is from PPI.
