BT has announced that its retail broadband, phone and TV will go up in price from April 2nd.

The provider has confirmed that broadband charges will go up by between five and six per cent, while BT TV subscribers will have to pay £3.50 a month for BT Sport.

However, phone rental charges will remain fixed at £18.99, as will the cost of a BT TV subscription.

This follows similar announcements by rival broadband providers Sky, Virgin Media and TalkTalk, and is the first time BT has announced a significant price rise since April last year.

John Petter, Chief Executive of BT Consumer, commented: "Customers will get a better package and improved service from us this year in exchange for paying a little more. 

"Millions will have the chance to upgrade to faster broadband and almost a million will be able to upgrade to enjoy unlimited usage for no extra cost."

Mr Petter added that BT has sought to help low income customers by freezing the price of BT Basic and capping call costs.
