And in those days, if you knew the local dialling codes exchange to exchange you could make a long distance call for the cost of a local call smile

Well certainly look at other options at the end of my contract, I will see how far Zzoomm have got as well, not that I am bothered about the higher speed.

In reply to a post by ashdown:
It makes me relieved that my ISP (Zen) commits to no price rises at all while I remain a customer.

I do wonder how Plusnet and others can justify such enormous and regular increases (other than exploiting presumed customer lethargy), especially as the cost of providing telecom services generally declines over time.

I remember the days when making a telephone call to the other end of the country was something to be considered very carefully indeed....

Mine's fixed until Dec 2021, they do offer fixed price.

Inflationary price rises is a big revenue driver in the industry. Commercial teams eye call traffic, rentals etc. to try and drive extra revenue. They even have metrics for churn % in relation to price rises so a nice revenue increase can be met without high churn. That's the Teco industry
