Don't personally like chasing people for a better deal than they currently advertise, I'll just look again in September.


If it gets you a deal you're happy with, what's 15-30mins out of your day to call them up, present your situation and see what they can do when your current contract ends? They can't be helpful to someone who stays silent and hence they don't know about.

As my old Mum always says: "If you don't ask, you don't get". Something that's held me in good stead through life so far!

Opens up a whole debate about whether it is better to chase after new customers while you extract the urine from your existing customer base.

That debate has been raging since xDSL services have been widely available in the UK.
I agree it's not an ideal scenario for existing customers, but it's not a real hardship for the majority to contact their provider and see what deals can be done.

Should they have to? No.

If it's cheaper elsewhere, vote with your feet, but run the risk of your new provider putting prices up during or out of contract anyway, putting you back in the same position in 12, 18 etc months time.

That debate will be eternal.

Around March this year I believe. Are you sure you're on Fibre 1, as the 43.99/m seems to equate to the old Fibre 2 price.

I'd give them a call if you're out of contract and see what reductions they can offer, bear in mind this will probably mean starting a new contract at any lower price.

Thanks! Yes, I've been on Fibre 1 for 43.99/month since early 2016.
