BT to increase phone call charges by 5%

Telecoms giant BT is to raise call charges for residential customers by up to 5% on 3 December – the second increase this year. UK landline calls will go up from 7.6p a minute to 7.95p a minute. Line rental prices will also rise, but calls to mobiles will be unchanged.

The changes come after a 10% rise in call charges a year ago, and a 9% increase in April. But BT said these prices would now be frozen until 2013. In July, BT group said profits before tax in the three months to 30 June were up 20% to £533m.
