    Why should a social tariff get a significantly better deal than a non-social tariff,

    IMO a social tariff, should be just that, a tariff which give a customer a limited or restricted service at a special price rather than the whole lot lot for less than anyone else pays. Why should someone who gets benefits get the same service as someone who has to pay £8 more. 

    Look at Smarty's tariffs and there are some pretty good deals for a lot less than £12, for instance unlimited calls, texts and 4Gb data for a fiver, that's what I would call a social tariff.

    I thought I'd refrain from going down that route but I do object to paying premium rates to subsidise others to get as much or even more than I can afford.

    As it happens I'm with Smarty and I get just 4Gb of data for £6 a month. Doesn't really seem all that fair does it, especially when my hard earned is paying tax for the benefits that they receive which qualify them for the concession in the first place.

    Its a funny old world.

    I did my bit to try and get this post removed by trying sarcasm and it obviously didn't work. I'll try again.

    This post has nothing to do with money saving or the subject of the thread. It's a rather obvious attempt to start a nasty argument about how deserving people on benefits are. 

    Luckily most people have seen straight thorough it and ignored the provocation. Leave the gammony outrage to the Daily Mail BTL nutters.
