Vodafone confirms price hike of 3.2% for pay monthly customers

Tuesday, March 21st 2017 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

Vodafone has confirmed its prices will be going up by 3.2% in April, in line with inflation.

The announcement follows the latest adjustment to the retail price index (RPI), a measure of the UK’s general rate of inflation published by the Office for National Statistics.

All Vodafone pay monthly contracts taken out since 5 May 2016 – and mobile broadband contracts taken out since 28 September 2016 – are subject to an annual price adjustment in line with RPI.

Pay monthly customers will see the 3.2% increase on their April bills, while Business Premier plan customers will see a 2.5% increase based on the RPI figure published in January.

For customers who bought a pay monthly bundle before 5 May 2016, Vodafone has said it will continue to honour its Fixed Price Promise but confirmed this will no longer be available to new and existing customers.

In February, EE said it would be putting its prices up by 2.5% in line with the RPI adjustment announced by the ONS in January.

It said customers would see an average increase of less than 80p a month when the change takes effect on 30 March.

O2 is putting up its prices by 2.6% in line with the RPI figure published in February.

The operator said customers on its most popular tariff would see an increase of 46p a month from April.

Three, in the terms and conditions of its pay monthly plans, says it has the right to increases prices by an amount up to the RPI rate published in February.

But the operator is yet to announce whether it will make such a change this year and has said it will inform customers when a decision has been made.
