T-Mobile announce price increase that's low enough to stop you from cancelling
Remember when Orange caused mild outrage towards the end of last year when they put up the price of their pay-monthly tariff? But, it was all legal and above board because the price hike was just below the retail price index and customers were unable to cancel their contracts as a result.
Well now, buoyed by the success of that sneaky little trick, Orange’s partners in Everything Everywhere, T-Mobile, are also increasing their pay-monthly prices, by 3.7% from 9th May. Again, as it’s a figure that is lower than the RPI, there’s nothing anyone can do to stop them.
Customers who had joined T-Mobile before 1st February will be affected, but those on You Fix, Full Monty and other currently-marketed plans won’t be as those tariffs already have the price increase built into them.
Although it seems like a massive liberty, T-Mobile say that on a £15 plan, the increase will mean an extra 55p per month for their customers. Fair enough, or devious and underhand. You tell us.
