Former British Telecom mobile phone network O2 has announced a price increase for its pay monthly customers, from the 28th of February 2013.
It is increasing the amount by the current inflation rate of 3.2 per cent. O2 has made public this news ahead of that start date, to give its customers the maximum possible notice to best manage their finances.
This amount is said to added 58p a month to half of the networks subscribes, where it notes the cost of call charges, text messaging and data will remain the same.
“At a time when our competitors have been raising the price of their tariffs, we have resisted. We’ve held off for as long as possible but now need to make a change”
“We consistently try to provide all our customers with great value and keep our prices low. However, as external costs continue to rise, we have had to review the impact this is having on what we charge for our pay monthly service”, states O2.
This will affect both consumers and business customers. Pay and Go, home/mobile broadband and home phone O2 users will be unaffected by the change.
