    Due to the current high inflation rates, consumers are paying more attention to their budgets. Moreover, some operators also reflect the rising inflation in their prices. Therefore, regularly comparing tariffs in a far from uniform telecommunications market is more useful than ever to save money, regardless of the household budget.
