Halifax has increased the interest it pays on medium to longer term internet bonds.

The two, three and five year Fixed Rate Web Saver accounts have all had their rates upped.

The two year account now pays a rate of 3.75% (+0.45), the three year 4.05% (+0.25%), and the four year 4.10% (+0.05%).

All other terms and conditions remain unchanged.

The two year offering has been increased by the largest amount to 3.75% and now sits just below the market leader.

Both the three and four year offerings, paying 4.05% and 4.10% respectively, are also within the top five in what is a highly competitive market place. As with many fixed term bonds, no earlier access to funds is permitted.

Four out of five Moneyfacts stars have been awarded.
