    hmm. I started a switch on two properties to a fixed SP tariff yesterday. Will I still get the prices I was quoted?

    Does that just leave EON and EDF to announce?

    I don't think they will SAY they will just DO...so if your with them now might be the time to fix or whatever....ive just jumped on the march 2015 fix . the jump to the march 2017 was just to much of a jump money wise...worked out 25% rise in one go for me going to 2017.
    was on april 2014 tariff...

    looking at a chart it seems EDF have been in the last two for rises in the previous 3 years

    Can't fix, I'm on PPM.

    I'm waiting for them all to finish, so I can do a new comparisson.:D

    Would be interesting if one just didn't put up prices, surely lots of customers would flock to them.:D
  • Hmm in a quandary now, fixed with SP till March next year so not sure whether to fix now, any suggestions?:(

    Funny, I set up my switch away from Scottish Power and onto a fixed rate this lunchtime...

    Funnier still, I noticed that the prices on my Scottish Power 'Online Fixed November 2013' tariff appear to go up at the end of October, rather than the end of November. Is this right???

    EDF will probably hold back for a bit.
    They will get all the numpties swapping to them as their old prices will appear to be a lot cheaper then everyone elses new prices.
    Then, when they have got as many as they can in, they will stuff 'em all with a super mega price rise.

    Well that's what I would do anyway.
