Those increases are outrageous, especially the £2.50/month increase in LRS. Meanwhile, no doubt, the wholesale price continues to go down. I'm going to have have a serious look around when my contract is up.

Just another reason to not renew next time around.

Thankfully, i paid my line rental upfront so hopefully this wont be affected.

Not really a surprise in those price rises when they are "flogging" such low cost BB ADSL and Fibre BB packages to new customers and also operate a price reduction for BB in "low cost" areas.

Hopefully the COT will be generous in their offer to me of a discount for staying with PN come renewal time in mid September tongue

I have my doubts.

My deal - just signed for fibre - wasn't too exceptional
I wonder if they will change their tune when I refuse to accept the change
My problem is that the only cheaper one is TalkTalk

I don't have that choice of LLU provision at the distant 20CN exchange, if it ain't PN then the choice price wise is a BT promotion and maybe some cashback from TCB, downside is the nearest Sainsbury store is around 90 miles away tongue smile

Noticed that BT put the price of its 80/20 service up recently but only just thought... it is the first time I have seen it listed without an offer attached..

Then just thought the offer they have on the 40/10 is good... this lead to me wondering if this might be BT's way of trying to poach Plusnet's 40/20 customers?

Though it might be as innocent as it being much cheaper for them to operate 40/10 over 80/20 and more profits come out of 40/10 then 80/20

But it won't affect you for 18 months Jim. It doesn't affect current customers and contracts until they seek a new deal rather than staying monthly. So why would you want to leave because of the changes.

Now if instead you have just realised you made a mistake, that is different

Edit - Ah, people on full rate phone appear to be affected.

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

I doubt it. It doesn't go up for people within a minimum terms, so doesn't affect them. Anyone else, or them at the end of their term, can leave anyway.
