I notice that Stephenf and other OCE's are now promoting the corporate line that TalkTalk had to upgrade their prices.
No they didn't have to upgrade prices, they chose to upgrade prices.
I thing myself and most others will accept that prices may unfortunately have to increase over time, but IMO at least this should have been for new customers and new contracts.
To retrospectively increase the price of contracts that were sold as "fixed" price is unbelievably dubious. It may be "legal" but is it "decent and honest", at the very least I believe it to be unethical. You offered an inducement for people to sign up to TalkTalk, got the contacts and then pulled the rug from beneath the feet of your paying customers.
How can anyone now believe anything TT offers as an inducement to agree any contract. The new Fibre35 offers a fixed price option - who can now believe that. It would appear that you can say whatever you want to gain customers, then hide behind weasel words and just simple screw your existing base.
My idea - that TT honour their customer commitments - legal, decent and honest !
