Ofcom announces price comparison scheme
Having completed its review on consumer policy, Ofcom has launched its price comparison accreditation scheme. The scheme will invite organisations to apply for accreditation of price comparison systems or cost calculators to assist end users in making informed decisions about communications services. Schemes will need to ensure they are accurate, transparent, compherensive and available to all consumers including the disabled and those without Internet access.
With the telecommunications market becoming increasingly complex, the comparison of different service bundles is becoming more and more difficult and therefore a simple way to compare multiple services is increasingly helpful.
