Social Tariffs

If you are struggling with the rising cost of living, there is support available so you can access the internet and use your mobile phones.

The government has worked with Internet Service Providers (IPSs) and Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to deliver low-cost broadband and phone service packages for those on low incomes. These are called social tariffs.

Social tariffs are available for people claiming Universal Credit, the state pension, and other benefits. Services are being offered from £15 per month.

Find out more on the Ofcom website and see if you are able to apply.
