UK carriers will be forced to let customers ditch mobile contracts if they raise prices

Could news. ISPs will be inclined for a lot more pushback on Wholesalers such as BT Wholesale when price rises happen as it'll have a knock on for them. I think this will be a bigger issue for fixed line services over mobiles.

In the case of long mobile contracts that might increase the risk and thus they might even start higher on prices which is a shame... the flip side being short contracts if they don't want to be vulnerable to market changes.
