I have an Old AOL account and have been told the £5 rise for Unlimited Broadband and Anytime calls will rise to £12.20 a month. My Line rental is still with BT.
As I have been on such a good deal before I have not looked elsewhere but at £12.20 it still seems value despite the £5 rise.
IS IT A GOOD PRICE ?
I would appreciate any comments - Thanks

Just looked at the deal with the Post Office for just the phone service
Also when I phoned was advised an offer...the first three months is free line rental and international calls at weekends are included in some saver plans
£120 only for yearly line rental saver
£5.75 anytime UK calls including some free calling features
Also see they only charge 5p per minute anytime for Italy calls so no need for International Call saver charge(around 26p with Talk Talk)
Unsure if override system will work on their system
Unsure if it's £31.50 with Topcashback
Oh and Talk Talk want £172.20 before 30/11 then it will go to £186.36 for the value line rental
Yes you can haggle but why bother when prices are much cheaper elsewhere and there could be a Topcashback bonus with it towards your saving

I'm trying to get a clear answer from them on the override point - it's pretty important.
Topcashback £31.50 seems to apply only to car insurance, unfortunately.
The three months free is a good offer - not available online, it seems.
As you say, not a bad deal, overall - subject to the overrider point.

This is getting ridiculous, isn't it? There's a roundabout of increases going on here, with TalkTalk, BT, Sky and all the others announcing increases every few weeks. One does it, then the rest follow, and then it starts all over again.
My guess is that there's an informal (and illegal) cartel giving rise to all these increases, with the result that there's no real competition any more. Ofcom won't find any evidence of a cartel (because Ofcom is ineffective and useless) but it's looking very much like there is one.
