BT has announced plans to put up its broadband and line rental prices at the end of the year.
From December 2014, BT line rental will increase by 6.25 per cent to £16.99 per month.
The cost of broadband subscriptions and home phone calls are set to rise by around 6.44 per cent each, although BT is to honour prices for existing bundles.
John Petter, Chief Executive Officer of BT Consumer, said the company is "sensitive to the tough economic times".
"We've taken care to make sure that low-income customers avoid price increases," he stated.
"We’ve added extra money-saving options for low-income customers and for customers who only want a phone line for calls."
Mr Petter added that although some prices are going up, BT is eager to help consumers find the best value possible.
He said BT is introducing "extra ways for customers to maximise their savings", such as the UK’s cheapest line and broadband bundle for low-income customers and Home Phone Saver for those who want standalone telephone services.
