The tool will quickly show the extent of mid-term contract rises imposed by the key providers.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics reveal that households will see a median rise of £11.25 monthly after the inflation-busting 14.4 percent price hike some, including BT, are applying in April.

Many broadband providers are climbing their charges by the speed of inflation plus 3.9 percent on top in the midst of contracts, without giving the shopper the precise to exit the contract.

The free calculator has been developed by Hyperoptic, the total fibre broadband provider which has never used mid-contract price rises.

Six in ten persons are unaware that their monthly charge

for his or her broadband contract will change, in accordance with research.

Hyperoptic’s Lutfu Kitapci said: “It’s unfair and misleading to let customers enroll to a contract price, only to extend that price months later – especially given the cost-of-living crisis when everyone seems to be attempting to budget.

“That is the last item people have to contend with in these financially difficult times. Our free calculator will allow people to search out out exactly what extra charges they shall be hit with from April onwards, in order that they will plan for that – and select a unique provider when their contract expires.”
