Re: Increase in Tariff Cost

I work in the B2B side of the industry and what we have been advised is that companies on standard business tariffs will be affected, but larger accounts who negotiated a bespoke package will not be affected.

It isn't very clear at this stage tho' but will hopefully know more soon.

Re: Increase in Tariff Cost

Cheers for that ewanrw, always good to get an inside perspective.

I think people shouldn't worry as much about the inflation as they should about this;

If a form of this gets passed ours right to privacy is gone, also whom do you think will be footing the bill that will result as ISP and telecoms are forced to keep all this data?

So no privacy and more expensive bills? Sort out the priorities:smileysad:

Re: Increase in Tariff Cost

Of course you are free to talk with your feet and leave if that's how you feel, but as every other mobile provider has also put their prices up I don't follow the logic, sorry. Be sure to come back and let us know how you get on.... :smileywink:

Re: Increase in Tariff Cost

A few weeks ago BBC Watchdog visited a number of phone stores. Both 3rd party retail and also network branded stores. 

 

They asked the question?

 

Was the monthly tariff price fixed for the duration of the contract? 

Not one of the stores said no. 

 

Frankly I can't stand the program and I think the days of companies being worried by the word "watchdog" have long gone. 

 

However I does seams that people selling mobile phone contracts are a bit unsure of the standard terms and conditions.

You're right, the knowledge of some is terrible, the only answer is to read the terms for yourself as even if they tell you something which is wrong, only the terms will apply.

Re: Increase in Tariff Cost

How can O2 actually be increasing thier tariffs by 3.2% and expect thier consumers to believe its an inflation based rise! 

 

The Bank of England is going through all sorts of fiscal stimulus to try and increase the money supply to the economy!? Month on month since November 2011 the Retail price index has decreased from 5% (excluding 1 month). The U.S. are on QE4!

 

How can O2 justify that Octobers RPI figure of 3.2% is a valid figure for a depressed economy.  I'm assuming that once the RPI falls below 3.2% we'll all be having our bill reduced?

 

Breach of contract???
