Television and broadband customers of Sky Ireland and Vodafone are facing an increase in price in the coming weeks. Just a day after Netflix began emailing customers to inform them of a rise in subscription costs, Sky and Vodafone have also confirmed plans to increase their prices.
The telecommunications companies are enforcing rises of up to €10 a month. Vodafone Ireland said it was raising prices for some of its voice and broadband customers on older, legacy packages from December.
Among the plans that will be increased in price are Simply Talk, which is rising from €30 per month to €40. Other plans going up in price include the company’s Simply Broadband service, which rises by €7 per month.
Sky Ireland has started contacting customers with average bills set to increase for some customers by between €2 and €4 a month from December. People on older TV and broadband packages will face higher bills. Those affected by the price hikes are customers who are either on legacy products, or who had previously been benefiting from a special low price.
