Can someone confirm if the recent "Your broadband charges" email is genuine.
It's offering Fibre 35 for £23.50 for 18 months with a link to click. Appears to be from <firstname.lastname@example.org> and has the usual T&Cs footer I would expect to see, but being cautious I thought I'd check.
Here's the text from the email
Over the last couple of years, our daily lives have changed and we’re all realising how important it is to stay connected.

I'll move your duplicate post (from earlier in the day) out of the way, as the issue appears to have been resolved here, @GraemeMcD.
