Hi, I am registered as a vulnerable customer with TalkTalk but still received the recent price rise - please can an OCE help.
I would have moved my service from TalkTalk if I knew this would happen.I was told on the phone that my fixed contract price wouldn't rise.
It was over a month ago- on around 18/3.
I had thought I was already registered as I am with my other providers - electricity,gas etc, but when I checked my account, I couldn't see it, so reregistered,and rang TT to check.
Thanks for your reply, and apology, but I still need this looking into as I cannot afford the price rise, and would have taken the option of leaving/moving to a different contract if I had been given the information before.
I rang TT on 18/3 around 3.20pm specifically to ask about my account, and to check whether the price rise would apply.
Faith in South Africa checked my account and reiterated many times that the price rise would not apply to my account. I explained my situation, and that I would have to leave TT if the price rise applied.
She again said that the price rise would not apply to me.
Please can someone check the transcript of the conversation, as one should expect that if you are given information by a TT employee that it should be correct.
Thanks for your help on this.

Unfortunately once the price increase has been applied it cannot be rolled back, I'm sure that there are something that can be done to reduce your monthly costs.
I will need to confirm some security questions so I have sent you a PM.
