    Can I ask what method did BT offered £25.99 ?

    My renewal is mid March currently pay £25.16 for Fibre 1, late last year phone call received I was offered same price for another 2 years which I declined due to March price increase if I renew early.

    Up until couple of weeks ago I was offered Fibre 2 via online account for less than £1 month extra, online account currently only offers full fibre 100 as cheapest option @ £29.99, online account deals page shows my current package as £34.99 which is more than pre-discount price.

    You have done very well to be paying £22.86 including 2023 price increase. :)

    Renew now and you will get hit with the increase in April I would have thought. But there is the risk a decent deal is not available then, but you would have thought there would be one for less than the increased price.

    How I read what you have posted same as what I see on my offer screen that is your current product not a renewal offer hence why it says for 0 months. (price shown may be more than you are paying)

    I would consider paying the early termination fee and taking advantage of other providers January offers before the end in a week or so.

    The early termination fee will likely be less than you think,  my contract with Now ends in July, early termination is less than £5.
