Here's what it means to you

    For all customers on non-Clubcard Price deals, each year from 2024, your basic monthly usage price or basic monthly price (depending on your contract type) will rise in line with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rate of inflation published in January + 3.9%.

    If the CPI rate is negative, we'll only apply the 3.9%. The price rise will come into effect on bills dated on or after April of each year, unless otherwise stated.

    For all customers on Clubcard Price deals, your basic monthly usage price (for data, minutes and texts within your allowances) will stay frozen for the length of your contract only.
