Price increases


[link to this post]
 
From August, the internet bill will change from £28 to £32 a month. This is still cheaper than Plus.Net though (by £1.50 a month).

Lauagble really as the specifically promised no price rises for the duration of the 18 month contract and yet here we are, 6 months in with an increase.

Still, at least they're being good about early terminations, it's allowed me to set up and early migration to IDNet. (My priorities have changed from cost to quality)

I've had no real with Vodafone... I was surprised the price increase was so soon though...

I think I've got around 10 months left on my contract - there isn't anything cheaper at the moment to make me want to move

That is a pity. How did you find out, did you get an email?

Even if there is anything cheaper, will it work out cheaper by the time you pay for connection which can be about £50 on some providers?

I looked around as I am on Plusnet and price wise I would not save much over if anything over an 18 month contract. May be best to stay with who you are with but try to get a better deal.

Probably wouldn't either. The contract has another year or so to run, so can't get anything better with the current contract yet...

As long as the service is ok, I did look at Vodafone once, but i heard the router was rubbish.

I used the Vodafone chat and they flatly denied it. I have a record of the chat!

I used online chat last week to obtain my username and password so i could use my own router.
They will only give you the user/pass if you tell them your using a openreach approved router.

I have been trying to buy an approved router on ebay, so far without success. However the recent price increase makes it less likely that I will want to become an Vodafone FTTC customer.

I don't think you have to actually have an approved router to obtain your credentials

I think that you may have to say that you have one.

I saw some Zyxel VMG8924-B10A going quite cheaply a little while ago on ebay, but lately they have been fetching more money.

I have now ordered broadband and obtained my connection userid and password.

When I requested these details, I was asked what router I was going to use as I was told they use different connect details for different routers. Seemed strange to me, but it was easy to tell the truth as I now have a Zyxel VMG8924-B10A.

I have had Vodafone mobile phones for some time and at the moment the price is £25pm. No mention of the price increase so far!

That is what I fear and I might quit if it happens. I did read about someone who was offered some cash back when their price was increased.

Today there is a large advert in the Telegraph say £25pm for 18 months, no need to be an existing mobile customer. I shall point that out if I have to resort to ringing them! I have managed to get them to provide the freebee although I ordered before the advert came out.

Are Vodafone like BT in their price handling of broadband contracts. Looking at or fibre. Choice of TT, Vodafone or, existing ADSL2+ Pulse8 line, for 38Mb upgrade.

What do you mean by that? If you are referring to the £3 price increase AIUI, you can either leave or maybe negotiate some cash back from their cancellations dept - or pay up! I think they can impose a RPI type increase.

Vodafone do have a special offer at the moment as mentioned in the News section of this website. They will now provide connection userid and password so that you can use your own equipment.

Referring to price increase within contract. BT state this in terms.
TT no increase in contract.

Its not really cheaper than Plusnet since they give you a £125 Amazon voucher when you sign up.
And £95 Cash back from TopCashback. Its too good to miss.
I would jump ship for the fact they are putting the price up by £4 month,.that's taking the P*** if you ask me,

Those "cashback" sites are nothing but a pain.

No mention of an Amazon voucher on their site. They only mention a £50 Reward Card for a slow internet connection...
