June Price Rises?

[Edit]-Just to clarify: Both of those point I have mentioned above are things that I have been informed will be happening.

They have not been confirmed by ntl yet, but they would appear to be as close to fact as you can get at the moment.

Also-if people want to discuss those two things, can you start a new thread as this one is about the 0845/0870 charges to call ntl?

MPEG 4 dropping & June price rises-you heard it here 1st.
Given we already have another thread discussing the MPEG4 being dropped:
http://www.cableforum.co.uk/board/sh...80#post=710980

I would be interested in discussing any rumours on these price rises in June.

Re: June Price Rises?

From what I gather....

1) Cheap calls to the USA being removed.

2) £4 non DD charge per account.

Re: June Price Rises?

Given how many non-DD customers I know, if they increase each one by only £2 then they'll be raking it in lol.

Re: June Price Rises?

Also peak/off peak call time is changing Peak rate is going to be 6am till 6pm instead of the current 8am till 6pm. So if you want to make a few cheap calls before heading to work you will need to get up earlier.

Also the international call plan is dropping from £2 a month to £1.50, telephone line rental will be going up by 50p.

No No No No No-Phone line rental is not free with ntl DTV.

You pay £10.50 over the price of the TV package & they 'include' line rental, they don't sell it without the phone as if they did no one would take it as it's completely inferior to BT's in pretty much every way.

It's been a bone of contention for years, if you look at the prices on their website it shows (for example) £19.50* , then at the bottom it says...

Re: June Price Rises

Sky charge a £4 non dd fee and can any one confirm that ntl is going to charge £4 for non DD aswell

I pay my bill by DD but some people can not pay by dd as they dont have a bank account or just dont like DIRECT DEBIT i think the £4 non dd fee is a money make scam and ntl have clicked on to what sky are doing so are going to scam people aswell come on fair enuf if it was a £1 non DD fee but £4 is a p*ss take

That is my view on it

Yes NTLs non-DD charge will be changing to £4. I am guessing it is to try and persuade more people to switch to DD. Its the best way to pay bills. All my Bills are paid by DD. Takes the hassle out of remembering to pay them.

Re: June Price Rises?

BT only charge an extra £1 for non payment by DD

I choose not to pay via DD where NTL are concerned due to all the incorrect billing errors etc that I get every month! (Well the last 5 months in a row anyway!)

I quit my phone & TV package & NTL have now given me good reason to quit my broadband to!

Re: June Price Rises?

Well-I've just had some very interesting info passed to me regarding these price rises....

I'm in the process of verifying it now (no offence to the 'passer' if you're reading this-you know I trust you )

I'll update you ASAP, but if it is true then it isn't good news.
