    • Thanks for your detailed response.   I just pray that they don’t give me a ban as I am a courier. Do you know how the courts consider whether to give the recommended points or a ban? Thank you

    • The National Police Chiefs' Council's policy on speeding enforcement suggest that speeds of 35mph or above in a 20mph area should be dealt with by way of court action. All forces in England & Wales usually follow those guidelines so it is more than likely your matter will be dealt with under the "Singe Justice Procedure."   Magistrates' guidelines for that speed suggest a fine of a week's net income (reduced by a third if you plead guilty) together with either a ban of up to 28 days or 4 to 6 points. Points are far more likely. That band of seriousness covers 31 to 40mph so you can expect six points or, if you're lucky, five. You will also pay £85 prosecution costs and a "Victim Surcharge" of 10% of the fine (minimum £34).   The police have six months from the date of the offence to bring proceedings and in many areas take all of that so you may not hear anything until next May. The first notification you get will be a "Singe Justice Procedure Notice". You cannot attend a Single Justice hearing but you will not have to attend court unless either you particularly want to or the Single Justice is considering disqualification (Single Justices will not disqualify you without giving you an opportunity to attend a court hearing). In either of those circumstances the matter will be adjourned and listed for a normal court hearing.

Mt other half got a 2 year contract for mobile broadband with Vodafone in January 2011.

This came with a laptop.

 

When we originally got the broadband, the signal was fine (not brilliant, but it worked).

Since moving we no longer get a good enough signal to load a page.

The signal either shows poor or no signal available.

 

In the last 3 months we haven't been able to use it at all.

Vodafone refuse to lower the allowance per month from 3GB to 1GB to at least try and make the bill cheaper for us.

They also will not allow us to cancel the contract without having to pay the remainder.

This is obviously annoying as we are paying around £25 per month for something we cannot use!

 

I understand we have to pay the cost of the laptop though, but no matter what we have told Vodafone they are refusing to help us.

 

They just tell us that Vodafone have the best signal in the country etc.

 

Any ideas on what we can tell them/write to them to help us?

 

I really do begrudge paying for something that we cannot use.

 

We have had to get BT broadband installed just to get the internet which of course is another expense.

Hi Clemma.

 

Follow this advice and get Lee involved in the 1st instance.

 

Hi CAG members,

We thought it would be nice to introduce ourselves and to assure you all that our presence on CAG is with the very best of intentions.

vodafone UK has recently introduced a dedicated Web Relations Team which is keen to seek out customers who’re having difficulties with their accounts and feel that they have no other place to turn to than CAG and other consumer forums and blogs.

Naturally, it’s not possible for us to help directly with account specific queries on CAG and as such we would encourage those members who feel we can help them to contact us privately at customer.care@help.vodafone.co.uk quoting ‘WRT135 – CAG Forum’ in the subject line to ensure that it reaches the Web Relations Team.

When emailing us we would also ask that you either provide us with a link to your post or thread – if you’ve posted in another member’s thread please also provide your CAG username so that we can check what your query is.

 

 

Although coverage is not guarenteed in a mobile contract, Lee will be able to investigate this and may come to some arrangement with you.

If in doubt, contact a qualified insured legal professional (or my wife... she knows EVERYTHING)

 

Or send a cheque or postal order payable to Reclaim the Right Ltd.

to

923 Finchley Road London NW11 7PE

 

 

Click here if you fancy an email address that shows you mean business! (only £6 and that will really help CAG)

 

If you can't donate, please use the Internet Search boxes on the CAG pages - these will generate a small but regular income for the site

Cheers. The mobile phone the other half has got is spot on for signal it's just the broadband. I'll no doubt get the same thing from them but it's worth a go. Thanks.
