The price of almost all services will come down, with the notable exception of WLR line transfer, which will rise to GBP 8.43 from GBP 6.28. WLR basic line rental will decline by 3.1 percent to GBP 86.72 a year. The Metallic Path Facility (MPF) price will be GBP 87.65 a year, essentially unchanged compared to GBP 87.48 at present.
