    Oh no. Another April Fool.

    It's the same one that the gas, electricity, water, food, banks and various other companies have been putting out all year every year.

    If Only!!

    Or just pay £114 for a year... saving £50 per year on the normal price.

    how would u go about paying upfront when youve 2 months in? do u just pay 10 months? or does it have to be the full 12, dont fancy being tied into another 12 month contract.

    I've paid up front, but that was at the old rate. I'm presuming the new rate will be shown on the bill and just eat into my advance payment a bit faster. :(
    The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force in my life. :)

    Along the same lines have just had price hike by T mobile.

    How is it that although you have a contract at an agreed price they can still put prices up in line with inflation(they do not tell you that when you take it out do they!) I know it will be in the small print somewhere.

    I think if they increase the price at all you should also be able to come out of the contract without penalty.

    Time to ditch and switch me thinks! Sky broadband is looking particularly attractive to me right now, might have to give them a go
