I think you are absolutely right, ottoni.

Re: Virgin set to increase price April 2018?

No price rise is obviously happening next month so that is good

Anyone know if BT Sport will remain free in the top TV packs for next season?

My contract is up next weekend and I'm looking to ditch the phone line and reduce the BB speed to offset a lot of the rises over the past few years

That will most likely come with a new 12-month contract which I don't want to commit to should BT Sport be pulled before summer 19

If there are developments regarding BT Sport they would be announced around late June to Late July Gavin.

I really don't think you need to worry about entering into a new contract, Gavin. There is bound to be a price rise by the autumn, and so you could get out of the contract then if you wished to do so.

Re: Virgin set to increase price April 2018?

No not again. VM cannot increase charges. NO NEW CHANNELS. How can they justify increases

Does your energy supplier increase prices? Has your petrol/diesel gone up in the past year, did your council tax rise? Etc etc..........

Mad Max.
Sorry my friend, l am not in the mood for an argument. I have just managed to drive through the beast of the east weather conditions back to London. And my great friends of Hemsby who are suffering tonight due to bad weather.

All l am saying is that VM cannot justify price inceases. I am sure you understand. Don't want to be rude

It's not just about new channels, Arthur, it is also inflation and investment costs.
