    Hi.  That was my chat from BG about this popular tariff.  I tried last night and she said I could not move to it as was for military personnel only.  So it's true you need to try again.  Hope that helps someone.

    Ok I've switched to BG on variable tariff and asked 3 times "when my switch completes on December 9th on variable tariff I can switch the next day to the Zero fixed October 2022 tariff" 

    Three times I was told yes I can change either via my account or live chat.....so we will see what happens, I've also got screen shot/pdf copy/transcript

    At the end of the day the variable tariff is the price cap so nothing to lose but hopefully get moved to the Zero fixed Oct 22 which is a no brainer......£105 cheaper / no exit / fixed till Oct 22

    I have a vision of a suited man sat in an office at BG labelled "Commercial Director" suddenly clutching his chest as he looks at all the extra customers BG have gained - on a money losing historic tariff !!
