    I've just had an email from TESCO Mobile. Been with them for 15+ years. They are telling me they're are sticking it to us with a CPI +3.9% increase from March 2023.

    Am I reading this correctly?

    There's some mumbo-jumbo about Club card. But TBH it's unintelligible.

    Ofcom has a lot to answer for. The only sector where the fool of a Regulator allows wholesale theft from a captive, CPI, market.

    I presume the price hike will also apply to Sim Only customers who are out of contract?  Or will that come at a later date?

    To answer my own question, they do as I had an email about it this afternoon.

    Goodbye Tesco Mobile, the final push I needed to go to another provider after many years.
