Ive just had a letter from 3 mobile advising of price rises due to the increase in VAT to 20% from 1st Jan which is fair enough
The letter also states they are putting the price up further to take into account the current rate of inflation, which also makes it a nice round number taking the VAT and Inflation together.........
Ive never seen a mobile company put prices up for inflation before so this must be them just attempting to slip the inflation thru whilst everyones bills are going up with the VAT
Not sure if they will try this with everyone or whether their terms and conditions state they can do it with inflation / vat when customers are in contract or not but might be worth people who use 3 checking.
It is a mobile broadband contract I have with them which has already expired so I feel a phone call looming.
