Post Office to introduce price freeze on phone and broadband
The announcement guarantees that there will be no increase in Post Office HomePhone line rental or its HomePhone and Broadband packages before October 2013.
Post Office prices are currently 25% lower compared to the equivalent BT service.
Jeremy Woodrow, head of Post Office Telecoms, said: “At a time when other providers are announcing price increases our new price guarantee will provide customers with the added assurance that our prices, which are already very competitive, will be maintained for 12 months.”
The Post Office charges a monthly fee of £13.25 for its HomePhone services offering customers 60 hours of inclusive weekend calls, including UK mobile phones and 40 International destinations alongside inclusive evening and weekend calls to BT landlines and 0845 / 0870 numbers from 6pm to 6am during evenings and from 6pm on Fridays to 6am on Mondays at the weekend.
Customers can add broadband from £8.15 per month.
Woodrow added “Our recent research shows that 45% of the population have never changed suppliers but as household costs soar, now is a good time to shop around and it’s really simple to switch providers.”
