Overcharged after renewal.

Hi,

I was notified on the 16th July that my Unlimited Fibre Broadband and Line Renatal contract would be ending on 17th August and I could renew the contract for  £21.95 per month otherwise it would rise to £38.20.

I renewed and on the 17th July and received a Confirmation of the new Contract stating that from the 19th July my Subscription would be £21.95 for 18 month.

However on the 18th July I received a bill for £34.75 which was taken from my account on the 26th July.

Presumably this is a mistake and can e corrected.

Many thanks.

Steve.

Re: Overcharged after renewal.

Exactly the same. Received email confirmation of contract renewal monthly charge of £17.74, first invoice was £29.34. Why should customers have to be on the ball every month to check that Plusnet are abiding by an agreed contract???

Re: Overcharged after renewal.

Hi @shiggy, thanks for getting in touch and I'm sorry to hear the latest invoice amount has come as a shock. I've looked into this for you and although I can't confirm my findings via this support channel, I've updated a ticket on your account which may help explain the recent invoice amount for you.

The ticket I've raised on your account regarding this can be seen here:

I hope this helps.

Re: Overcharged after renewal.

Hi,

Thanks for the response, I replied to the ticket but not sure if I need to reply there or here so:

 

If my fixed price contract ended on the 18/07/21 then the emails I received about the end date were wrong and have misled me as they stated the contract was ending on the 17th August, not July.

The email I received on the 16th of June titled "It's time for your personalised account review" stated:

"Once your fixed price contract ends on 17th August 2021, you’ll start to pay a higher price."

Obviously I didn't renew in June as according to the email I had two monhs left.

Again, the email I received on the 16th July titled "Your Plusnet service" stated:

"Your broadband (Unlimited Fibre) and line rental contract is coming to an end on 17th August 2021. When your contract ends your monthly price will go from £12.00 to £38.20."

Luckily for me I decided to renew there and then, on the 16th July.

So even if my contract did expire on the 18th July I still renewed on the 16th July, two days before the expiry. I got a confirmation of the new contract the next day on the 17th July.
