Which ISPs Increased VAT?


[link to this post]
 
Orange didn't increase my subs this month due to the VAT increase.

Out of interest, which ISPs did increase prices of existing contracts as a result of the VAT change?

I know AOL did, by far more than the statutory amount.

1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU BB => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU BB

I'm on BE unlimited and the price was increased by 38p so not a huge dent in the finances at all.

I think it's inferred that they've used the vat increase to hike the price. Like quite a few of the major retailers have done.

retailers love price points so it's hardly surprising if the price doesn't go up precisely 2.127659574 %

the answer to the OP is that they all increased VAT, but some may have reduced their ex VAT price smile

Close, but no banana.

No ISPs increased VAT. The government did. Which ISPs passed the rise on to the customer is the question.

Some ISP's lowered their prices when VAT dropped to 15%, some did not, so there is a lot of history checking that needs to be made to see if an ISP is hiding another raise in the current VAT changes.
