UK ISP TalkTalk Reveal Spate of Broadband and Phone Price Hikes for 2013

Wednesday, Oct 24th, 2012 (1:48 pm) - Score 1,082

Budget internet and phone provider TalkTalk has today quietly revealed a spate of new price hikes for its UK phone, broadband and TV services. The changes, which are largely in response to a similar move by BT and other ISPs, are all due to take effect from 1st January 2013.

Customers can expect the standard Line Rental charge to increase by 45p from £14.50 to £14.95 inc. VAT per month. The ISPs Plus (broadband and phone) and Plus TV (broadband, phone and YouView TV) bundles will also rise by £1 from £14.50 to £15.50 per month.

On top of that the UK daytime call rates will increase from 7.95 to 8.41p per minute and mobile rates will jump to 11.30p per minute (Daytime) and 5.30p per minute (Evening). The call connection fee for Directory Enquiries, Premium Rates and Service Rates will also rise from 13.1 to 13.87p per call.

The following packages will all go up by £1:

  • Talk UK Weekend
  • Talk Global Anytime
  • Talk Global Evening & Weekend
  • Talk International Anytime
  • Talk International Evening & Weekend
  • Talk Total Evening & Weekend
  • Talk Total Anytime
  • Talk 3 BB
  • Talk International Evening & Weekend IPS
  • Talk International Anytime IPS
  • Talk UK Evening and Weekend
  • Talk UK Anytime

Sadly the ISPs Non-Geographic call rates will also increase, details of which can be found HERE for TalkTalk and HERE for older Tiscali users. Needless to say consumers are unlikely to be happy with the development but appear to have little power to stop such changes, although Ofcom are consulting on the issue of unexpected mid-contract price rises.
