In the last parliament 262 MPs signed an Early Day Motion supporting the campaign (making it the 7th most popular EDM overall), whilst over 135,000 members of the public have signed an online petition to lower MTRs to a penny or less.
The demand for lower MTRs has been clearly demonstrated. It is up to Ofcom to respond to that demand and lower MTRs now. Ofcom are currently consulting on the setting of MTRs for the next four years, and have recommended a dramatic reduction in rates by 2015 at the latest.
I have written to all MPs to ask them to join the campaign and I urge you to write to your local MP to ask them to do the same.
The campaign is rapidly gaining momentum and was featured in a full page editorial in yesterday's Guardian.
You can join the campaign by visiting www.terminatetherate.org
Did you know about MTRs? Do you think the current cost is acceptable?
