O2 are citing a rise of 3.2% in inflation to justify increasing costs.
I have just checked out the .gov site and the UK Inflation Rate see below:
Jan 12 3.6%
Apr 12 3.5%
Oct 12 2.2%
Jan 13 2.7%
Pray tell, where is there a rise of 3.2%... Would O2 care to defend themselves I wonder.
I have been with O2 for more years than I care to remember, I am seriously looking at moving to a sim only deal and Virgin beats O2 hands down.
£12 on a rolling month contract
The equivalent with O2 £36
And thats before the increase, no contest.......

O2 don't say "inflation" - they specifiy RPI.
The RPI at end of December 2012 was 3.1% but O2 announced the price rise earlier in the month and used the figures available at that date.

This topic has been discussed ad nauseum in other threads. If you can get a better deal with Virgin, just go. No one is stopping you.

I've used virgin before and found the network to be fringe coverage at best where I reside and work.
I know your thinking of a sim only contract but id like to also say their choice of handsets is rather poor too.
Hope you find the deal of your choice and take care.

ACTUALLY O2 DO SAY INFLATION NOT RPI SEE EXTRACT BELOW..
Pay Monthly tariffs are going up in price. From 28 February 2013 they'll increase by 3.2% in line with inflation as at December 2012 when we made the announcement
Now are my eyes decieving me or does this say RPI ????
