Re: Another price hike for "THREE" mobile phone users

But a bit over blown. Seems its more to do with international calls / texts. People I know who have friends in foreign climes tend to use messenger etc ... for free.

 

But talking of increases, not all phone companies are going up....yet. My mobile deal (not with Three) has been at £7.50 a month for years now, I nearly upgraded (last week), to 20Gb a month for a tenner (£5 for first 3 months). With that I could make lots of calls etc to foreign climes. But 20Gb? I have trouble using 4Gb a month on the mobile, let alone 20Gb.

 

Although I see they are jumping on the CPI + 3.9% increase each April. Sounds like rip off Britain is alive and well.

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

Totally agree  and the CPI for April 2021 has doubled to 1.5% 

The big problem is the yearly increase is an increase on top of last years increase like a rolling snow ball

Per year !

Mine is £60.00 p.a. - for unlimited calls/texts - way offset by the fact that no calls other than 0800 numbers are via landline.
