Not just VM ;

Quote:
Other internet providers are expected to announce similar - or larger - inflation-beating increases soon.

BT changed its terms and conditions last year to say it would increase broadband prices by 3.9% above the first CPI rate published every year, which this year is due in 16 days. BT's sister companies, EE and Plusnet, followed suit.

Re: New price rises 2021!

VM are just the first to announce price rices, the usual suspects will follow suite in time.
Disgusting though any company raising prices during these times.

Re: New price rises 2021!

This is different to past years, normally there's only so many people that phone and moan at the price rise and either get a better price than they was paying before or at least not increase.
People will have less money as they are only getting 80% or have been made redundant in the past few months this might be the last straw to make people switch.
With the new lockdown people will also have more time on their hands to contact virgin media to moan for discount or leave especially if a company like sky come out and say no price rises for the next 18 months

Is that Virgin Medias fault ?

Is no other shop or business anywhere in the country increasing prices ? (Hint, they are).

Sorry, but they are not a charity.


Also, you might want to read the report as well
Quote:
The increases will come into effect on 1 March - but they will not affect vulnerable customers, such as those on a special package for universal credit recipients.

Agreed, and other similar providers are likely to increase their prices even more.

There was no increase last year and investment comes at a cost.

You can bet your bottom dollar that some will happily forget that VM did NOT raise prices last year unlike some other providers. Some people will always moan no matter what.
