1. CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR
We will be closed from Friday 23 December from 1pm and will have a skeleton staff on Thursday 29 and Friday 30 December. Normal service will resume on Tuesday 3 January 2017. As with previous years, please submit your draft radio copy at the earliest opportunity so that we can work to your deadlines.
We will also be out of the office for most of Wednesday 14 December and will catch up on Thursday 15th.
2. BROADBAND PRICING - NEW REGULATORY POLICY
From 31 October, all broadband ads containing monthly costs must do so inclusive of line rental costs – no more separating out line rental. Post-discount pricing, up front and one-off costs must be stated alongside this monthly cost. For example, the claim “Broadband for £7.50 a month, plus line rental £17.99 a month” with the qualifying tag of “£7.95 delivery. £49 activation. £26 from month 13. New XX Broadband customers. 12 month contract” will become “Broadband for £25.49 for 12 months” with the adjacent, qualifying tag of “£43.99 from month 13. £56.95 one-off fee applies. New XX Broadband customers”. Radiocentre Clearance welcomes a ‘single pricing statement’ in the interests of clarity for consumers and shorter tags.
