Keep Me Posted gains news coverage from OAP discrimination figures

Submitted by: Greg Selfe 11/12/2014

The Keep Me Posted Campaign continues to attract more media attention.

The Daily Mail has recently published a story highlighting some of the key facts the campaign has found. In particular, the article focuses on the discrimination that the elderly are faced with when it comes to choosing how they receive their bills and statements.

It is common practise amongst large utility providers and telecommunication companies to charge excessive amounts for their customers to receive papers bills, as opposed to online statements. For a large number of elderly people, broadband internet connections and computer hardware is just not available; whether it's due to their financial situations or just not a priority to get 'online'.

Keep Me Posted, working alongside our friends at GI Solutions, have worked out that high volume mailing costs companies just 35 pence per letter to send. However, their research also found that firms are charging, on average, £1.67 per paper correspondence.

This unjustified disparity is something the Keep Me Posted campaigns will endeavour to fight, until a reasonable and fair price is charged to these firm's loyal customers.
