In a world where unexpected price hikes have become an unfortunate norm, we stand by our commitment to providing the best possible broadband service without subjecting you to any unpleasant surprises.
In this blog, we’ll explore the issue of mid-contract price rises and explain why 6G Internet has chosen to do things differently.
Mid-Contract Broadband Price Rises Explained
Broadband companies usually offer contracts ranging from 12 to 24 months, with the monthly cost fixed for the entire contract duration.
But some companies incorporate sneaky clauses in their contracts that allow them to increase the price during the contract term, which is known as a mid-contract price rise.
These price hikes are often linked to inflation or other market factors, and they can significantly affect customers’ monthly bills.
Why Other Broadband suppliers Raise Prices Mid-Contract
There are several reasons why broadband companies raise their customer’s bills mid-contract:
- Inflation: As the cost of living and doing business increases, companies may decide to pass on these additional costs to their customers to protect their profit margins.
- Market competition: Companies may initially offer lower prices to attract customers, only to increase them later once they have secured a customer base.
- Increased operational costs: Some companies might face unexpected expenses, such as network upgrades or infrastructure maintenance, and decide to recoup these costs by raising prices.
Broadband Companies Known for Mid-Contract Price Rises
Many well-known broadband providers put price rise clauses into their contracts, including major players like BT, Virgin Media, and Sky. These increases can vary in amount, but they typically range from 1% to 5% per year, depending on the provider and the contract terms.
For a customer paying £40 per month, a 5% increase would translate to an additional £2 per month or £24 per year. This may not seem significant, but these increases can add up over time, especially for customers on tight budgets.
And much larger price rises are incoming. BT, EE, Plusnet, Sky, TalkTalk and Three have all announced an April price increase. According to money-saving expert Martin Lewis, some of their customers will soon start paying 13% more for their broadband.
