Latest email from PN

I received the PN Newsletter yesterday. And an "Update about your broadband service" today. They seem very similar.

The second email seemed a general email about all products and not about MY broadband service (BB+). A better email would have included the latest guidelines on BB+ usage (which needs to mention FTP by the way).

Two paragraphs in the second email worry me:

How does this affect me?
You will get a free upgrade to faster speeds, if your line will support them. We will be updating all our broadband products to reflect the faster speeds, with some customers also seeing price reductions - find out more at

If you're already paying for an up to 4Mb or an up to 8Mb product and we find that you cannot get these speeds, you will get a refund of any extra money that you have paid, providing you have not taken advantage of the higher levels of usage available on these products. We'll contact you in the coming weeks with more details about this if it applies to you.

The first paragraph tells me I "WILL" get a free upgrade. The link and second paragraph tell me my monthly costs depend on the speed I use.

The conclusion from this is that monthly costs will go up for customer's on all products who get a speed increase (unless they are already paying the higher cost). And this will happen without asking us.

I can't believe PN will actually do this. Time for more clarity?

I've read a lot of good news in this forum about BB+. It's this news I think should be passed on to BB+ customers. Not a rehashed newsletter.
