This rip-off charge called a line rental is being increased yet again. This won't just be BT, they will all follow suite and up theirs as well, so standby Sky and Virgin customers.

 

We're changing some of our prices from 20 September 2015

 

Line rental will go up by £1 per month. We've also made changes to some of our other prices and terms. Changes to our phone and TV prices are shown below. To check changes to your broadband package, click here (you'll need your account number and telephone number to log in).

 

Standard Pricing†

 

Calls to UK landlines and the Access Charge for calls to Service Numbers will go from 9.58p to 10.24p a minute.

Calls to mobiles from your landline are going up from 12.77p to 13.65p a minute. (But if you have the Unlimited Anytime Calls plan, you'll pay less than half price with a change from 6p to 6.41p a minute.

The set-up fee for calls will go from 15.97p to 17.07p a call.

† Inclusive calls of up to an hour on calling plans will not be affected.

 

Changes to our line rental and calling plans

 

Line Rental (monthly price) From - To

 

Standard Line Rental £16.99 - £17.99

 

Line Rental Plus £18.99 - £19.99

Unlimited Anytime Calls

 

(if you signed up on or before 20 June 2014 £7.45 - £7.95

 

Unlimited Evening and Weekend Calls

Unlimited Anytime Calls

 

(if you signed up after 20 June 2014) £7.50 - £7.95

 

Unlimited Evening and Weekend Calls

 

(if you signed up after 20 June 2014) £3.00 - £3.20

 

Add-ons (monthly price) From - To

 

Friends and Family International £1.20 - £1.25

 

International Freedom £6.20 - £6.60

 

You can get a good mobile plan for less than that, so me thinks it's time to cancel the landline and move over to just mobile. £20 to rent a bit of wire, I ask you, it's the same bit of wire that was there in WW2.

SSE are doing a good deal but they are the new guys so no reliable info on how good they are. If you pay the line rental up front it works out at £12 per month and they throw in free broadband and free weekend calls.

If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

I pay annually and it gives about 50% off with BT, I see Virgin gives even more.
