Thanks for getting in touch.
When you agree a contract term with us we advise how much you'll be paying once that ends. Fixed price contracts and end of contract account review only comes into play for any contracts started on or after 8th August 2018.
As 12 months is the minimum contract length we offer and 12 months have not yet passed I'm afraid that there is no way you could've been eligible for this. Any new contract you agree moving forward, we will email you before it expires.
Once a payment fails, your account goes into 'failed billing'. On Days 1, 5 & 10 of failed billing your browsing will be interrupted by a 'splash screen'. This splash screen is a reminder that payment is due, but can be bypassed by you selecting the option to 'acknowledge and continue browsing' (this is only view-able on an internet browser and not apps) and once done your browsing will return to normal. We are aware of a small number of customers that are not seeing the splash screen when interruptions are applied meaning this cannot be bypassed on your side.
We have now removed the interruption so you should be able to browse normally and make a payment.
Hope this helps clarify things.
From 31st October 2022, I no longer have a regular presence here as I’ve moved on to a new role.
