BT


[link to this post]
 
BT never misses a trick.
Line rental increased to £17.99 as announced.
Saw there is an additional charge of 53 pence in my latest bill, up to £18.52.
Wonderful BT tell me the 53 pence is because of billing dates.
Never miss a trick do they.
I never use BT except for their land line.
(end of Moan).

Is your broadband with them?

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

The alternative is the TalkTalk method whereby they apply price increases on the first bill following the price increase date. So for a price increase on 1 Jan 2016, people billed on 1 Jan 2016 pay a whole month at the increased price, but people billed on 31 Jan 2016 have (almost) the whole of January at the previous lower price.

BT apply price increases pro-rata, and that seems fairer to me.

They charge in advance. Therefore the adjustment is to account for the part of the month where the price went up but you hadn't been charged for it. For a company that bills in advance that is not unusual - you could argue they should have sorted it on the previous bill so the adjustment wasn't necessary but maybe their systems aren't setup to do that.

If 53p is too much, then why not cancel your land line? Welcome to the world of inflation (which the government claims doesn't exist)

Comments noted.
In answer to RobertoS My broadband is not with BT.

The really annoying issue was that MY BILL showed that there was a charge of 53 pence
in the Box which reads as 'Unlimited Weekend Plan'.
No other explanation given.

From that, I presumed that in the FUTURE there would be a charge for the above Plan.
I am aware the amount is trivial but I don't care for Monopolies.
I do not use BT for telephone calls.

In which case move the line to Pulse8, (it goes to the Business rental so click the Home tab), like I did in August after 46 years! I now pay £13 plus £1 for Caller display.

The OP hasn't mentioned wishing to change their broadband provider, and IIRC we haven't a clue who it is at the moment smile. The Pulse8 line rental suggestion is simply to get away from the extortionate BT line rental, as I did.

At the time my broadband was with Plusnet, now with AAISP.
