Sending your children back to school is proving to be more expensive, say parents, due to the rising costs of modern technology.

In a survey conducted by mobile phone manufacturer Alcatel, 64.1% of parents agreed that the expense of technology – such as laptops, tablets and smart phones – contributes to the financial pressure felt by parents of schoolchildren and students. Only 3.9% of parents surveyed disagreed with the statement.

William Paterson, Alcatel’s UK & IRE Country Director, said: “Technology should be affordable for all, no matter what your background or circumstances. That’s why at Alcatel we believe in great technology at a great price. Every parent should be able to send their children back to school with the technology required to succeed, but not be burdened by the soaring costs.”

Alcatel’s ‘Great tech, great price’ campaign is about showing consumers through its latest range of products that you don’t have to spend big to own a quality piece of technology; there’s a phone for everyone.
