Despite the largest proportional price rises over the past three years, the UK is still one of the cheapest countries in which to send a standard sized domestic letter.
- It costs 60p to send a First Class standard sized letter in the UK, the same price as in China.
- Among our European comparators, it is only cheaper to send a letter with the same dimensions in Ireland (49p) and Poland (46p).
These were amongst the findings of Ofcom’s International Communications Market Report, which examines take-up, availability, price and use of communications services across the world’s major countries.
The report also reveals that a higher proportion of online UK adults send invitations, greeting cards or postcards in comparison to other countries surveyed.
