  1. Virgin Media has announced price hikes for its cable service, which includes broadband, TV and fixed-line phones, which will affect five million customers. The broadband provider said prices for “the significant majority” of customers will rise by between £2 and £4 per month, or an average increase of 4.5 per cent. The company said this was a lower price hike than last year, despite the fact that broadband usage on its network had increased by almost 40 per cent since then, with approximately 60 per cent of total traffic now due to more streaming of video. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/virgin-media-price-hike-customers-bills-broadband-cable-phone-tv-a8494391.html

  3. Hi, as a family we have 3 monthly mobile phone plans with Orange UK. Below are our current contracts: iPhone Extra 41 - Unlimited Texts, 600 Minutes, 1GB data - £41 per month - (taken out 27th Feb 2012 for 2 years) iPhone Extra 36 - Unlimited Texts, Unlimited Calls, 1GB data - £36 per month - (taken out 14th Sep 2012 for 2 years) Dolphin 7 - 500 Texts, 150 Minutes, 250MB data - £7 per month - (taken out 24th Sep 2012 for 1 year) Now Orange have sent a letter stating that because of the economic climate they have to raise the prices on their plans and ours have been raised as such; iPhone Extra 41 - up to £42.324 iPhone Extra 36 - up to £37.164 Dolphin 7 - up to £7.224 Now we are a little annoyed that they can do this to anyone, let alone us, part way through a contract. Surely when signing up to a year or 2 year term, that is the price you pay, it can't be changed at some spurious point into the contract can it? Now, to add some other information here, none of our contracts were made in a physical branch, two were done over the phone and one via the internet, so no terms and conditions were given or shown. Today I had a look on the Orange website at the current monthly plans and found some interesting information. The Dolphin 7 plan is still shown and is priced at £7 per month, not the new £7.224 per month that we are being charged. Both the iPhone Extra plans no longer exist but have been renamed to The Works 36 & The Works 41, both of these plans are again shown as priced at £36 & £41 per month respectively and not the new hiked price. Now have we got a case against Orange for initially changing the contracted price part way through a contract and the fact that tariffs are still available at our initial prices on their website? Kind regards.., DHB

  6. As English fans cheer securing a victory over their Ukrainian hosts on Tuesday night,any fans making a late decision to fly out and follow England will have little to cheer when they see the prices of flights which have increased massively from usual fares. I decided to take a look at 4 leading carriers with regular routes to Kiev from London. Boryspil is still the biggest airport and is serviced by all the majors except Wizz Air,who have made the smaller Zhulani their Ukraine hub. Boryspil is approximately 40 minutes ride from the centre of Kiev,whils Zhulani is only around 15 minutes. A typical return flight from London Luton to Kiev at this time of the year can usually be booked for between £140-£180 including 32kg baggage.In fact holders of a Wizz Air membership which costs £24.99 can get up to 20% discount on flights booked online. So here is the online price found after England secured their victory,based on staying for the duration of the tournament. Going Out London Luton (LTN) >> Kyiv Zhulyany (IEV) 06/22/12 W6 6001 Depart LTN 4:30 PM Return Flight Coming Back Kyiv Zhulyany (IEV) >> London Luton (LTN) 07/02/12 W6 6002 Depart IEV 10:10 PM Price Summary Service fees Going Out LTN >> IEV (Web) 1 Adult @ 319.49 319.49 GBP Taxes / Fees [details] 20.50 GBP Coming Back IEV >> LTN (Web) 1 Adult @ 329.32 329.32 GBP Taxes / Fees [details] 10.67 GBP Services and Fees Baggage fee 42.00 GBP Taxes 0.00 GBP price excluding booking fee 721.98 GBP Booking fee 14 GBP total price 735.98 GBP
