Re: VM News Another Price Increase

Just got my price increase letter through the post. I think this is my last year with VM. I will be ditching my package (landline + broadband) next June. I will just get a good mobile phone and download anything I need such as youtube videos and then watch them on my desktop computer at home. I can get free wifi from my local council and university, although it will mean cycling 7 miles to get within range, still better than paying VM 40 a month.

Back to the dark ages then?

Why don't you just drop down to the minimum package?

I'm on the lowest package. M50 fibre broadband and landline. I get a loyalty discount of 5 a month. So now on 37 a month and then add 2.50 price increase to that in September.

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

Livelysprite get on the phone to them and threaten to cancel. Tell them you can get Vodafone superfast fibre broadband and landline for 27. Give your notice period and reject any offers in that call.

They'll phone back in 2-3 days with better offers.

Thanks. If I'm correct, I'll be out of contract when they increase the prices in September and can phone them then.

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

No worries. In some cases notification of the rise gives a time limited get out where you can threaten to cancel now. Not had my letter yet so don’t know if this applies.
