    First Post First Anniversary Combo Breaker
    Virgin Media M250 - 18 months on £23.95 planned hike to £64.00 next month. Online chat reduced to £62.00. Cancelled service and twice daily calls started coming in. Still with 3 weeks to go to cut off, they called again. "How much to get you to stay?". "Less than I pay now". No fuss, immediately reduced to £22 for 18 months with RPI+ increase in April 2025. Told them I'd had loads of issues contacting customer service so they also credited my bill with £45, so altogether, M250, no other options, equivalent rate £19.50 over the next 18 months. 
    Niceee, but will it go higher from April?
    Whatever price you get now doesn't it stay as that regardless of rpi increase??

    First RPI++ increment not until April 2025. I can live with that.
