Post Office Homephone and Broadband recession-busting price freeze

1st October 2012 Print

Post Office has announced a recession-busting price freeze on its HomePhone and Broadband services for both current and new customers.

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 per cent lower compared to the equivalent BT service and from 5 January our prices will become even more competitive as the BT price rise takes effect.

Jeremy Woodrow, Head of 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.

He added "Our recent research shows that 45 per cent 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.  We're committed to offering our existing and new customers the best possible prices, combined with the assurance that they can set a long term budget for their home phone and broadband bills."

Post Office charges a monthly fee of only £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 as little as £8.15 per month.

Post Office is still the only provider in the UK allowing customers to pay all their bills in cash without incurring a financial penalty and from January BT will be charging customers £2 extra per month to pay in cash.
