Perhaps they'll sell BT for £1 and to hell with the pensioners, like BHS.

The change in the call setup charge will be a 31% increase over this time last year.  No real justification for the price in relation to the cost.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

I do like how newspapers latch on to percentage rises. Maybe with base prices not too far apart percentages are not more than a minor matter, but consider this fictitious for example situation.

Deaths from ingrowing toenail up 200%. Last year's 2 deaths; this year six. With small samples, or cheap purchases percentage rises percentages distort the truth.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

There might be just a touch of understanding if billing was fixed and phone queues reduced but things seem to have got worse.

Price rises on top of a reduction of services always leaves a bitter taste.
