Telecom to raise rental

11 Jan 2006

New Zealand Telecom says it is increasing line rental charges by 5.9% from March, although customers using discount packages such as Anytime, Budget Link and 60s Plus will have their charges frozen. Telecom’s head of consumer marketing, Victoria Crone, commented: “We’re encouraging customers to choose the plan that can deliver the most savings for them, depending on their calling patterns.” She added that the increase, which will see the standard monthly charge rise from NZD39.85 to NZD42.20, is the first hike for two years.
