Quickline broadband provider serves hard-to-reach communities with promise of price freeze for 2024
With costs linked to inflation rates, some prices rocketed by more than 14% in 2023. And although the anticipated increases may be slightly lower this year, they are still likely to inflict financial strain on many users.
In contrast, rural broadband provider Quickline Communications will not be pushing up its prices, and instead has pledged to retain its price freeze throughout 2024.
The UK communications regulator made the announcement at the end of last year, following its review of the policy.
Championing customers’ needs
Quickline has long been championing this change to protect consumers from the outrageous annual cost increase.
The rural provider did not increase their prices in 2023 and will not be doing so in 2024.
Sean Royce, CEO of Quickline Communications, said: “We wholeheartedly welcome the move by Ofcom to ban unfair mid-contract price rises, in the interests of the consumer.
“We have said for a long time now that these hikes are not fair, they are not appropriate and they are not right, more so than ever before with the cost-of-living crisis when every penny counts.
“Consumers need the reassurance that the price they sign up for is the price they will pay, in pounds and pence and for the full duration of their contract.
“Last year we reaffirmed our two-year price freeze, removing the fear of cost hikes for our customers at a time when major broadband providers significantly increased their tariffs – many by far more than inflation.
“That promise remains, with no customers to pay more than the price they agreed when they first signed their contract with Quickline.
“The announcement by Ofcom to ban inflation-linked price hikes will go some way to providing that peace of mind for millions of customers although unfortunately it won’t come in time for this April.”
