Mobile Network Price increase
MCL have always worked hard whenever possible to absorb all price increases to date from the networks which means we have never passed that increase on to our customers. 3 of the major mobile networks Mobile networks have increased their tariff pricing by a minimum of 4% meaning for the first time in years this may now have an impact on you.
Mobile operators Three UK, EE, and Vodafone have all confirmed that they’ll introduce mid-contract price rises for customers, which will be conducted in line with inflation as measured via the Retail Price Index (RPI). The RPI figure for January 2018 was 4%.
On every EE contract the monthly price plan charge will generally be increased by RPI in March of each year and 2018 is no different, with the operator having confirmed that they intend to impose a 4.1% rise (based on the December 2017 RPI).
Meanwhile Three UK and Vodafone have all confirmed plans for a similar increase. They will adopt an RPI increase of 4% from April 2018 (unless you joined / upgraded after 13th February 2018) and the prices for calls outside your monthly allowance or international calls may also change.
