SPANISH network provider Telefonica, owners of Movistar, will raise the prices of some of their most popular mobile and broadband packages in the new year.
Spanish media report that the price hike could see some of the network provider’s charges increasing by up to 33% from their current price.
The tariffs subject to the planned increase include the Movistar fibre-only plan and the Movistar Fusion 0 mobile package currently offered by the company.
The Fusion 0 package is Movistar’s most affordable mobile package at present, although prices are scheduled to change in price from January 18, 2019.
The price of calling landlines, once the contracted 200 minutes have been used up, will increase from 30 cents to 40 cents a minute after the January 18, a 33.3% increase for current customers.
In regards to internet packages, From January 5, 2019, Movistar ‘Fibra Optica’ prices will increase by three euros a month on the 100mb and 600mb tariffs.
The new prices for the 100mb and 600mb packages will increase to 63.40 euros a month and 68.40 euros a month respectively.
Telefonica’s ‘Solo Fibra’ plan will have increased by eight euros a month in the space of a year after a three-euro monthly price hike comes into effect on January 16, 2019.
This is due to the three-euro price hike of July 16, 2018 and the two euro increase implemented from January 5, 2018.
