Guessing they're going on an area by area basis you'll get it eventually

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

I got the email and called up to negotiate. I was going to pay 64.50 in total after the price increase.

They couldn't offer me any discounts and ended up cancelling.

The next day retentions called me to offer me broandand on it's own for 31 (350m) or including phone line for 38.

While I don't really need the landline I still went for the latter (still not sure why).

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

Phoned up this morning to cancel got 10 a month knocked off to 71 odd and 11 credit for September's bill couldn't turn that offer down

71 to what would have been 85 is a very good offer and wasn't worth the hassle of arguing or switching to save an extra 6 with talktalk

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

Mine was nearly 4.50 for just broadband, so their increases are just randomly generated. Still works out the same as a new customer so perhaps I am lucky, but no good being loyal.

You need to phone up and get through to customer relations, mine had gone to 97, managed to get it down to 74, going up to 79 in September .

I'm on the same package as you and i'm currently paying 71.50 on a deal which ends in September after which mine goes up to 81.50 as stated on my contract.



I haven't had anything about the price rise yet though.

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

One bill goes up, another comes down.

My daughter has had the unlimited VIP mobile tariff for a few years. It went up to 27, but a "Monthly Tariff Discount" of 2 to 2037 appeared ages ago dropping it to 25. Now her bill has another discount "Monthly Charge Refund" of 4.00 that has dropped it to 21. ???
