BT has been accused of "sneakily" switching millions of customers to a new tariff where they will have to pay up to 2,000 per cent more for their calls. Nationwide, phone bills are expected to jump by at least £300m as a result of the rises in line rental and weekday calls, which came into force on 1 April. On 1 February, BT wrote to 10.8 million people on the BT Together 1 package telling them: "At BT, we're always looking for ways to give you value for money", and informing them they would, in future, receive free weekend calls on the Unlimited Weekend Plan. But the small print in a leaflet contained details of above-inflation price rises. Looks like they have a different view of inflation.
