The main price increases are:

* The price of First and Second class stamps for standard items weighing up to 100g will rise by 5p to 46p and 4p to 36p respectively.
* The cost of a Large Letter stamp will rise by 9p to 75p for First Class items and 7p to 58p for Second Class mail.
* An increase in prices for franked mail by 3p to 39p for standard First Class items and by 3p to 28p for Second Class Mail. This is the first increase for two years on franked mail following a price freeze last year.

13% increase if you had 1 of each 1st, 2nd and Large 1st, for what is a shambolic company.

Google isn't broken though: http://www.moneywise.co.uk/news-views/2011/04/04/price-first-class-stamp-increases-to-46p

Royal Mail has increased the postage of first class stamps by 5p to 46p - the biggest recorded increase in one go ever.

Second class stamps have also increased by 4p to 36p, while large letters now cost 75p to send first class and 58p to send second class, jumping by 9p and 7p respectively.

wow! that is an amazing increase coming on the back of over inflation increases over the last few years.

Glad I bought about 500 1st class stamps a few years back for 31p each!

I just wish I'd seen the price rises a few weeks back as would have bought 500 more!
