Stamp price hike will hit the most vulnerable

The recent news that the cost of a first class stamp will rocket to 60p is another blow to consumers, according to uSwitch.com

Ann Robinson, Director of Consumer Policy at uSwitch.com summed up the impact it will have on those who don’t have access to the internet, particularly the old and vulnerable:

“While people who can go online can avoid it [the price increase] to an extent, those without internet access will be forced to cough up.  It’s just another example of the financial penalties facing those who can’t go online.”
