Today BT has announced that they will be increasing the prices for its broadband, landline, and sport services.
As part of these price changes, BT will be increasing the prices of their broadband packages by between 5% and 6% from April 2nd, they will also be increasing the cost of calls for landline users by 1p per minutes.
Also from August, BT TV subscribers will have to pay £3.50 a month to gain access to BT Sport and its content.
This is possibly the biggest change since BT Sport has been free for BT broadband subscribers for some time now.
They did say that the phone rental price will remain frozen at £18.99 and the cost of a subscription to BT TV. They also mentioned that they will compensate customers automatically if they fail to deliver on one of its service promises, but they did not reveal details on that.
if you are happy with these changes, then you will have 30 days to opt out after you have been informed by BT about it, which is part of Ofcom’s regulations.
BT’s consumer chief executive, John Petter, said the following about the changes:
“Customers will get a better package and improved service from us this year in exchange for paying a little more.
“Millions will have the chance to upgrade to faster broadband and almost a million will be able to upgrade to enjoy unlimited usage for no extra cost.”
