Average price increase of 2.12 euros per month

According to Ziggo, the average price increase amounts to 2.12 euros per month. The provider says this is necessary due to higher costs, such as more expensive network equipment and a “massive price increase in network power consumption.” According to the provider, the use of data on the network continues to grow exponentially. Compared to 2019, consumption on the fixed network has grown by more than 60 percent, according to Ziggo. In addition, the provider claims that with the new price changes a step has been taken to ‘align rates so that customers with comparable package components pay approximately the same’.

Annual price increase in terms

Ziggo’s new terms and conditions state that the provider has the right to increase prices each year up to a percentage that corresponds to the Statistics Netherlands consumer price index. If that percentage is negative, Ziggo will not adjust prices. The provider says to change prices annually on July 1, which is already happening in practice. By including the price change in the conditions, customers with an ongoing contract are no longer contract-free after a price increase. At the moment this is still the case. The new terms and conditions will take effect for current customers on July 1, 2022 and will apply to new customers who sign up on or after May 9. Ziggo hasn’t announced the change in a big way; the details were noted by the broadband store.

Speed ​​increase from July 1

Ziggo is also speeding up various subscriptions starting July 1. The provider already announced it in April. Only the speed of Giga subscriptions does not change. Therefore, the upload speed of the fastest packet remains at 50 Mbit/s.
