Well I remember the time when I initially took up an invitation to try to Telegraph newspaper for £1 a week!

I recalled they asked me how long I wanted to the subscription for, so I though about 2 years should adequate - so I told them 24 months. They said fine, and that was it. This must have been some time in the 1990's, as I was still in Lewes College.

I then remember it went up to £1.50 a week for a year, and increasing ever since...

Anyway, about 4-5 years ago, instead of an annual or similar time-bound subscription, it became opened-ended - meaning I just simply paid a Direct Debit (Quarterly) amount, and I get the vouchers delivered for a similar period of time (3-months worth). I recognised that the prices have slowly increased, and towards the end of last month, I was advised that the subscription will now be £4.90 a week - versus a cover price of £7.40. Okay, that's still a saving of £2.50 a week - so it's not that bad, and I guess the subscription does stay static even if the cover price may increase. Currently, this equates to £63.70 a quarter...that's now broken over the £60 barrier. When you see it like this, it indicates how much newspapers costs these days.

The history was as follows (all per quarter):

  • Some time earlier - it was £13.00 (£1 / wk)
  • in Dec 1999 - it was £19.50 (£1.50 / wk)
  • in May 2000 - it became £26.00 (£2 / wk)
  • in June 2001 - it became £32.50 (£2.50 / wk)
  • in May 2002 - it became £34.45 (£2.65 / wk) (then stayed for a few years)
  • in May 2005 - it became £43.55 (£3.35 / wk)
  • in May 2006 - it became £48.75 (£3.75 / wk)
  • in May 2007 - it became £55.25 (£4.25 / wk)
  • and in April 2008 - it became £63.70 (£4.90 / wk).

I wonder how long before it goes through the £70 / quarter barrier! Probably within the year!
