If you’re on the Three UK network, your bills are going to increase this month
Three Mobile customers will see a spike in their bills this month as the operator raises prices in line with inflation.
Following the Retail Prices Index measure of inflation, customers can expect to see their bills go up by around 4%.
So if you’re paying £20 a month, for example, you could see an extra 80p added on top each month for the same plan.
Although the UK network announced the price change earlier this year, it may come as a nasty surprise to some people when they come to check their bills at the end of the month.
Sadly, there’s not much you can do about it as mobile networks are well within their rights to increase prices with inflation – even if it occurs in the middle of your mobile contract.
Other networks like Vodafone, EE and O2 also saw prices rise by about 4% in March and April.
Like many other mobile operators, our pay monthly plans are subject to an annual price increase in line with the RPI rate of inflation published by the ONS.
“This year, our customers will see an increase of 4% – for example a Three customer currently paying £20 per month will see an increase of 80p per month," a spokesperson for Three said.
“We plan to start introducing this during May 2018 and will be getting in touch with impacted customers, to let them know of this change and how this will affect them directly.
“We know price increases are frustrating but we are committed to giving customers the best experience possible by offering benefits such as roaming in 71 worldwide destinations at no extra cost, streaming the latest shows and music without eating into data, 4G at no extra cost, plus access to weekly rewards and free stuff through our Wuntu app.”
