has anyone been offered better than £106.50 for ultimate oomph with 3 boxes for existing customers

Paul, exactly the offer I got. 2 V6 and an old Tivo. Minor increase on the £102 I was paying last year, but significantly less than the £150 they tried to charge three years ago for much less service.

What are people paying for 100bb only?

I was previously on £24.50 a month, they would always offer a good discount on calling up but they won't budge from £30 a month now.

Can easily sign up on wife's name, plenty of offers at £24/ £25 through uSwitch and cable.co.uk

they offered me 3 v6

Just cancel, and wait a few days they will call you, don't accept anything less than the price a new customer gets plus some bill credit. Otherwise if you live with another adult, cancel your services and sign up in a new name, at the same address and get the cashback, bill credits and cheap monthly price.

Yes, since it is a different person under a different credit agreement. What I'd say though is, you'll find once you give them the 30 days notice you'll get nagged to death to stay, just stand your ground and tell them what you'll get as a 'valued' new customer rather than sticking around. They'll sort something out, and if not you just sign up and have it reactivated after a couple of days under the new account, with stacks of cashback and bill credits etc. :)

Going to call tonight to get my price down, M350 is £35 for new customers so I'm looking at paying that, currently paying £42.50. if they won't budge I'll put my notice in and sign up as a new customer in partners details

Thought I'd update peeps on my outcome.

As I predicted, no one called me back after cancelling. Ended up calling two days before being disconnected asking if they definitely can't do anything. Offered £51, was £67,

Not to bad a result I guess, but I knew they'd call my bluff! :rolleyes:
