BT has announced that it will raise the prices of its broadband services and line rental next month. 

 

BT has announced that it will raise the prices of its broadband services and line rental next month. 

The announcement comes soon after the provider claimed it would be raising the speed of its standard fibre broadband. 

July 3rd will see line rental costs for all of BT’s services raised by £1, with the cost of BT Sport also rising by the same amount.

BT Infinity customers will have to pay £2.05 more on average per month for their service starting in July.

BT claims that this rise in price is being balanced out by the improved speed of its fibre broadband, which is going from up to 38Mbps to 52Mbps. 

BT has also pledged to repair fault lines and respond to outages faster than it has in the past, with engineers being sent out 24 hours faster than before, with home visits included if required. 

Broadband customers are also set to receive free Net Protect Security software for their home computers, which is originally priced at £36 a year. 

Chief Executive of BT Consumer, John Petter, said that customers of the provider would receive better value for their money going forward. 

“It is clear that customers want better service and that is what we are going to give them.”

"We have also done our best to ensure that all of our customers will get more value if their price is going up, and we know they want faster speeds and better online security from their broadband. So, most of our Infinity 1 customers will enjoy much faster speeds for a little extra, while all of our customers will receive a quicker response if they have a fault and free BT Net Protect security."

BT has also noted that its price increases are lower than that of rival providers Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin Media.
