Ofcom setting out new guidelines that will allow customers to ditch contracts if prices are raised


The only people that benifit from price hikes are the company’s doing it. It seems UK regulator Ofcom feel the same way as they are to set out new guidance for mobile, broadband and landline suppliers. The new plans will allow the consumer to ditch their contract without any penalty’s or cost if prices are raised during their contract. The new rules won’t come into play for at least three months and will only apply to those who take a contract after that is worth noting that this doesn’t include changes in terms and conditions or when you have been talking and texting to much and went over your allowance. Although it may not be the perfect solution it may give people ease knowing there contract won’t rise unexpectedly.
