BT to raise call charges by 10%19 Jul 2010 | Filed under: Industry News, Supplier Management
According to an article on the BBC website today, BT are planning to increase call charges by 10% and its monthly line rental by 50p from the beginning of October. The cost of connecting a call will go up by a penny from 9.9p to 10.9p and the daytime rate by half a penny from 5.9p to 6.4p a minute.
As you might expect, however there are a of raft ways in which BT customers can avoid or minimise these increases, for example by signing up to longer-term contracts, moving to bundled inclusive packages, paying annually rather than quarterly or monthly, or opting to receive their bills electronically. Which is all well and good if you’ve got the time and knowledge to obectively review your bills and work out which are the best options for your organisation, including whether to move to an alternative supplier. Auditel clients who use BT will, of course, be contacted by their consultants as a matter of course to discuss recommendations for ensuring these price rises don’t impact on them.
