Consumer Focus has published the report by London Economics “Potential impacts of stamp price increases: Consumer research”. The study examines how consumers might react to stamp price increases in the context of potential rises following Ofcom’s Royal Mail price control, using an online choice experiment methodology. In particular, we analyse the extent to which consumers are likely to switch from first to second class mail and away from postal products all together. The overall purpose of the study is to support Consumer Focus in their response to Ofcom’s price review consultation.
