Vodafone calls get more expensive

Fancy paying more money for your call charges? Then you’re in luck – Vodafone has had just the idea for you: it’s decided to hike up its per minute call costs for both pay as you go and contract customers.

The price rises, which go into effect next month, will see call costs rising by between 3p and 5p a minute. A Vodafone spokesperson The Sun that most customers shouldn’t see their bills rising by more than 10 percent.

It’s most likely the price rises – following hot on the heels of similar moves from T-Mobile and O2 – are a reflection of the wobbly economic situation at the moment, as well as a way of clawing back some of the cash lost as a result of the roaming regulation passed by the EC which cut the cost of using mobiles while abroad significantly. While it’s not a surprising move from the operators, it is a disappointing one.
