As expected, Orange is starting to warn its customers of the price increase planned for 2023. So watch your emails if you don’t want to pay more.
It’s not really a surprise, Orange announced it in December. However, the internet service provider (ISP) is starting to communicate more widely with its customers about the price increase for its subscriptions to come in 2023.
Several members of the editorial staff have received an email to warn them that the price of their package will increase. Thus, Orange ADSL or Open subscribers will see their bill increase by two euros per month, while subscribers to fiber and mobile offers from Orange or Sosh (including ADSL) will see theirs increase by one euro per month.
Orange specifies that this increase is linked to “a significant increase in operating costs, in particular the energy that powers the mobile and internet networks“. Only part of this increase, however, is passed on to the customers of the French telecom giant, according to him.
The pricing change will be effective from April 2023. As this is a change to the terms of the initial contract, this means that those who wish to do so can cancel their subscription free of charge within four months of the receipt of the mail informing them of the modification.
The growl too
On social networks, multiple users complain about this price increase, and even more about the choice of packages available. While new subscribers have recently been entitled to great offers, current subscribers are limited in their choice. Some therefore plan to change mobile phone plan or of Internet package for cheaper offers, at least while waiting for Orange and Sosh to offer new promotions to attract new customers.
Will you change plans if it increases by 1 euro?
