Well the YouFibre salesman must be right. Hes away with his commission by the time VM charge you.... Was he called Richard Turpin ?

Re: Price rises this year.

Just phoned VM in the last hour as my current contract was up next month. Used the thinking of leaving option and got through right away to a lovely lady called Amber. Slight increase of 3 a month to what I currently pay but am happy with that. 88 plus O2 cost a month for the Ultimate Gig1 package.

That is good news, tried last week and was on web chat with India. Currently paying 75 (3 V6 boxes) + what was 25 to 02 for Ultimate Volt, best she could offer was 133 for the VM bit and 02 on top.

Ultimate Volt seems to be 85 quid still so will phone and hopefully get through to Scotland on Friday and get the deal done

Re: Price rises this year.

After a lot of kerfuffle with my original re-negotiation going wrong from back in Jan as seen here: https://www.cableforum.uk/board/show...5#post36153395

I've finally got a deal with Retentions for 48 for anytime chatter and 350 BB (If I'd have done nothing in Jan, I'd be paying 100 and with only 250 BB)

Thanks for sharing, good news on the deal.

I'm in exactly the same position, 85 + O2 with contract expiring next month.

I've already shaved 20 off my O2 bill by dropping down my data allowance so I'm hoping I'll be quids in when I negotiate VM over the next few days.

Re: Price rises this year.

New deal today for 18 months was Ultimate Volt @ 75pm now 79 pm with Netflix included
Rep seemed to think the 02 side was not automatic and I needed to contact them to negotiate a new deal - is that correct ?

As far as I know, yes treat them both seperately. I've already renewed O2 (the deal at the time was too good to turn down) and due to ring VM to negotiate my Ultimate Volt deal soon

If I can get 79 inc Netflix too then I'll be very happy. Can I ask which tier of Netflix you get included please?

Phoned 02 and the whole thing was painful as they would not deviate from their script, anyway happy at 15 a month and will go down to 12 if I sms a code after the new sim is activated. 60gb data more than enough for me.

Re: Price rises this year.

Thanks for all your answers.

Just to share my experience...

I was paying 85 VM Ultimate volt inc a second V6 + 32 O2 unlimited data (Was 25, had 2 RPI increases during the contract).

Renegotiated O2 online a few weeks back, downgraded to 5GB, doubled to 10GB for 12/month + cost of a new phone but that was my choice so I'll ignore the cost.
Saved 20/month

Phoned VM yesterday, first offer for a like for like was 90.75/month including Netflix which I paid separately for... Typically Netflix started being offered a few weeks after my last contract started.
Managed to squeeze another 3/month out of them to get to 87.75/month and said yes

Net result, 2.75/month more to VM but saved 10.99/month to Netflix direct so 8.24/month better off + 20 better off on O2.

Yes this may be still a lot to pay for some but I'm happy with the deal, especially when the price rise notice was 21.50 a few months back, I've managed to save over 28/month

Regarding the O2 link to VM, all they asked was that this price was only being offered if you have an O2 contract, they just asked me to confirm the phone number and it went through ok.
Obviously there to make sure you haven't cancelled the O2 SIM, therefore it doesn't have to be unlimited to get a decent Ultimate Volt deal.

Hopefully I haven't bored you with my story

Re: Price rises this year.

That’s very useful I’m in a similar situation. Recently downgraded to an 80 GB O2 tariff and wondered what that would mean for my Ultimate Volt offer. Virgin contract up in November I think.
