UK ISP TalkTalk Follows BT to Hike Broadband and Phone Prices

Thursday, August 27th, 2015 (1:07 pm) - Score 1,459

It’s not been long since TalkTalk announced their last batch of price rises in April 2015 (here) and the bad news is that they’ve today hit customers with a second hike, which will take the standard price of their entry-level broadband package from £5 to £7.50 a month and push line rental from £16.70 to £17.70.

At this point we should remind readers that the ISPs popular unlimited SimplyBroadband service started out in 2013 as a £2.50 per month package with no free UK calls (note: you still have to add TalkTalk’s line rental on top) and has thus risen at a startling pace since then.

The mid-contract price rises are typically above any impact from inflation, which means that under Ofcom’s guidelines customers who don’t like the change should be able to exit their contract penalty free within 30 days of receiving their price notification letter.

No doubt the other ISPs will follow suit with similar price hikes, just as they always do around this time of year (always after BT has lead the way), in due course.
