Businesses need not take telecom provider price increases lying down. BT for example will be increasing their prices in April. Price increases provide a 30 day window of opportunity for businesses to switch suppliers. Under rules introduced by Ofcom customers who are part-way through a contract can leave for a rival provider without penalty, providing they do so within 30 days of receiving their price-hike letter. Control Costs has delivered some excellent cost saving deals which ordinarily beat BT circa 35%, providing the same quality line & broadband and arguably better service. The range of savings annually has been between £350 (newer agreements) to £1,100 (old agreements).
