Vodafone And Orange Increase PAYG Pricing

From July 14th, Vodafone UK will be increasing prices on it's PAYG mobile deals.  The move will see call prices rise from 21p to 25p per minute for calls to UK mobiles and landline, text messaging will also increase from 10p per text to 12p.

Orange increased it's pricing on Friday pushing up the cost of a call to 25p from 20p and texts from 10p to 12p.

Vodafone placed the reasoning behind the pricing increase on Ofcom rulings over mobile termination rate (a rate charged to another operator to allow their customer to connect to the charging operators customer) cuts which came in to force in April.

In a statement Vodafone said: During our discussions with Ofcom over mobile termination rates, we stressed that if the rates came down rapidly and dramatically, the cost of Pay As You Go was likely to rise as a consequence
