TalkTalk raising broadband, TV and phone prices in new year
TalkTalk is set to increase its broadband, home phone and TV prices in 2013, echoing similar moves from BT and other internet service providers (ISPs).
From January, the company's standard line rental will rise by 45p per month, while hikes have also been announced for the Plus and Plus TV broadband bundles, both of which are set to climb by £1 per month.
Explaining the move, a TalkTalk spokesman told the Daily Mail that the rise will support the ISP's network investment strategy, with capacity expected to increase 100-fold over the next five years.
"This investment underpins the business and supports our market share and growth ambitions," he commented.
"We continue to offer the best value landline, broadband, TV and mobile services, and are driving improvements through the business."
The hike comes less than six months after TalkTalk raised its line rental rates for the majority of its 4.1 million customers.
On May 1st, the communications giant increased this standard charge from £13.80 to £14.50 per month, with the move affecting all subscribers apart from those on the Value Line Rental tariff.
