They're stopping it for new customers:

They're also following BT and EE with the "easy to understand" annual price rises of inflation + 3.9%

Re: New price rises 2021!

My phone contract with o2 ends this october and i usually upgrade in store by recycling my old phone to pay for the new one after just 12 months. This time though due to the pandemic i've not been allowed to so i may finally just let my contract end and move to virgin media (which ironically may be aligning with o2 by then)

My question is does getting a mobile phone with virgin get you to the "ultimate oomph" package? According to the website i'm currently on

M350 broadband
full house tv
talk more anytime
+3 v6 boxes

i pay around 95 quid a month. Could i technically save more money by having mobile services with virgin media? i mean don't have a lower amount than 95 quid but it would trigger more savings overall?

Re: New price rises 2021!

When I tried to haggle I was only offered to recontract on more than what I’m paying now. Time to play the broadband merry go round again. Hate to do this every so often as speeds on the open reach where I am are terrible but needs must.

To add to this Plusnet are also scrapping their no price rise promise during a contract too.

Nice work. I've just spoken to disconnections. Currently paying 118.50, due to increase to 133.50 in March. Lowest they offered was 110 for ultimate oomph for 18 months.

I've handed in 30 days notice and will see what happens...

Hoping that's the case. Over 10 years now in total, a year at my current address.

Re: New price rises 2021!

I called Thursday but all options offered meant paying more so I cancelled.
Got a call Friday and got a result.

Re: New price rises 2021!

They seem to be doing some decent deals this year. I still have not seen my new contract yet as I have to wait for the landline disconnect but I have the offer in writing
