Telecoms provider EE is set to raise the prices for calls on its fixed line home phone and broadband deals, with the increases to come into effect early next year.
According to ISPReview.co.uk, the rises will take effect from January 22nd 2019, which the company will also introduce a new late payment fee from March 23rd 2019.
It stated that the connection charge for a call to a UK landline or mobile will increase from 21p to 23p. International connections charges will go up from 21p to 23p.
Calls to UK landlines will thereafter be charged at 15.5p, up from 13.5p, while for call to mobiles, the cost will rise from 16p to 18p.
Customers who pay for their broadband and phone services by cash, cheque or card instead of direct debit may also face a new £4 late payment fee if EE does not receive their payment within 15 days of their billing date.
In a statement, EE said: "We need to increase the cost of our out of bundle charges to be able to continue to invest in the services we provide to our customers. We know a price rise is not ideal, that’s why we’ve tried to keep the increase to a small amount where possible."
