    ​is that with phone?

    increasing from 50mb to 100mb will not improve your speed issues

    Paying £21.99 for that with £3 off for 6 months. If you're having issues in your area then there's nothing you can do, you'll just need to wait it out until they complete upgrade to handle the high utilisation.

    You can and should call every month until it's fixed to get some account credit back too.

    ​kish is that a new customer deal or existing customer?

    They have credited my account for £30 this month which covers the bill

    ​That's a very good price. How did you manage to get them to lower it?

    I was in the same position but they've upgraded, whatever they upgrade in my area. So speed fixed. I was on £18.25/month for 70Mb. I could have stayed at that but wanted best speed I could get. So got new super hub 3, 100Mb for £20/month for another year. I'm broadband only, no phone.

    Thanks, SSE don't offer that where I am.

    So you reckon only way to get decent deal from them is to cancel?

    Any tips on how on what said/asked etc will be greatly appreciated.
