Finally had enough of price increases

So I got another email stating the prices agree are going up again. 

 

Phoned and got a leaving date agreed, foc due to the price increase.  This is the third increase in a short time. 

 

Today I get an email stating a termination charge...... can someone on here please talk some sense to the idiots in the charging team? 

Thank you,  and if I would like to explain that is only the increases in charges.  The forum on here is fantastic and if the billing was fair I wouldn't even be considering leaving, 

 

Thanks

Re: Finally had enough of price increases

I noticed that if you sign into Plusnet over a VPN that they will offer to move your phone & broadband to Plusnet and offer you all the special "discounts" and cashback that they wouldn't offer to a loyal Plusnet customer - even if you are one.

Re: Finally had enough of price increases

Good afternoon Miserable ,

When you called did you state the reason you were leaving was because of the recent price increase

Anyone who calls in to leave must state the reason they are leaving is because of the price increase nothing else

 VileReynard  is quite right about special discounts/offers for new customers

New rules coming in from 15 February next year hopefully will help

Re: Finally had enough of price increases

That is exactly what I stated.

Apparently it only applies to the Early Termination charges. It doesn't apply to Early Termination charges!

 

from the Ticket;

Currently, you are within a contract a contractual agreement for your fibre subscription up until 04/02/2020 this is the reason why the early termination fee has been generated. The early termination fee includes the pro-rota costs of the usage of your services until your line has been taken over which is scheduled for  

 

So although you can cancel with no charges, there are charges.

I don't understand

You should only pay PlusNet up to the day you leave  and as you pay in advance you should get a refund for the days left in that period

Re: Finally had enough of price increases

From the email sent to me;

 

You'll receive a cancellation bill with the charges you need to pay.

Because you're moving your broadband before the end of your minimum term, you will be subject to early termination charges. These have been calculated at XXXXX. You can find out more information about this in our Price guide.
 
 

Your cancellation bill

 
Your cancellation bill will include:
 
 
The charge to cancel your services, detailed above
 
A final charge to cover your services for the period between your previous bill and the transfer date
 
Any applicable charges for broadband usage and calls made in the period between your previous bill and the transfer date
 

We'll use the details stored on your account to take the payment. If you pay by Direct Debit please don't worry about cancelling it, we'll take care of it once all your charges have been paid.

@Anonymous 

 

Me neither. 

 

I have to pay an additional fee because I am cancelling but there are no cancellation charges. In fact I was advised I would get a refund on the monthly charge1

Is that the same thing as a "cessation charge" GrinGrinGrinGrinCrazy3

Re: Finally had enough of price increases

Thanks for your message @Miserable.

 

I'm afraid the previous advice given is incorrect - we currently have an issue whereby the email you've received is not showing at our end, which is why @Dumbledore has advised there'd be charges.

 

Please disregard this - In your circumstances, there are no early termination fees to pay.

 

The automated email you've received stating that there are charges has also been sent in error - I'll update the account notes now to reflect this.

 

Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

Re: Finally had enough of price increases

Thank you.  I'll leave this open until the bill is recieved.

 

I will point out,  and I hope this gets read by someone who makes these decisions to increase prices,  that as my mobile phone renewal is just after my contract would have run out with plusnet you have not only lost a broadband deal,  a TV deal,  a BT Sport deal but also 2 mobile phone contracts. 

 

I understand you'll make more than you'll lose but if you upset enough people you won't have profit.
