BT customers could face price increases on their broadband bundles after the telecoms giant announced a pricing restructure.
The firm says call prices will rise by up to ten per cent in the autumn, in a move which will have a knock-on effect to broadband packages.
BT's monthly line rental costs are also set to increase by 50p per month, adding to the size of household bills.
However, the price hike can be avoided by paying for a year's landline services in advance – potentially a move geared at ensuring brand loyalty.
A spokesperson for the broadband provider stated: "We would be happy to discuss whether our customers would be better off on one of our inclusive packages.
"We are making these changes to enable us to invest in better value calls packages in the future."
Earlier this month, BT revealed it is close to completing fibre-optic broadband network upgrades in Pontefract.
