MADRID, 7 Dic. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Telecommunications operators have once again cut discounts on their promotions during the month of November, with an average increase of 2.78 euros in their rates in the run-up to the price increase that will take place in January, according to the comparator compilation. And yes.
This increase in cost is exacerbated among the three main players in the market (Movistar, Orange and Vodafone), whose prices have risen 4.71 euros on average, mainly in the form of cuts in the conditions of promotions, according to Ysi's analysis.
Movistar and Vodafone will raise their prices by 6.8 euros and around 4 euros on average starting next January and they are already beginning to notify their customers of these changes in their rates.
For its part, Orange has ruled out raising prices in the short term after having repositioned its rates last summer under the 'more for more' formula.
Telecommunications has been one of the few sectors in which prices have remained stable for the consumer, or even decreased, in the last two years. However, at the end of October, the main operators promoted a change in trend, challenging hyper-competition and the shift to 'low cost' in the market.
In fact, the announced price increases by Movistar and Vodafone will not affect, for example, O2 and Lowi, their brands to compete in the 'low cost' segment.
