I had no idea that Tiscali had changed any prices

  Cybermaxx 18:27 17 Jun 2006

until I read about it on another thread on here! I've just "upgraded" my 2MB service from £17.99 to £14.99. Good, you may say, less to pay now, but why on earth don't Tiscali do that themselves? Or would they have eventually? I could have sailed along for months blissfully unaware that they had reduced their prices.

This may change again shortly, when the 'upto' 8MB service starts.

Hmmm, the 8MB service costs £17.99. I would rather stick with the 2MB service I already have if it means a smaller bill. Maybe they could lose the 1MB one, and make the 2MB £4.50, eh? :-)

"could have sailed along for months blissfully unaware that they had reduced their prices."

Or you could have done what a lot of other people do:

Regularly sign into 'My Account' at Tiscali's website and then have a look at the 'Change your access package' to see what alternatives are available to you.

I'm afraid Cybermaxx that Tiscali are not the only one that does this. I found out a few months ago, through this Forum, that Tiscali had dropped their prices and did the same as you.

  Cybermaxx 10:02 18 Jun 2006

A few months ago?! So I've been paying £3 a month extra for all that time?

"Tiscali - the DIY broadband provider!"

Jackcoms. They could have emailed me about these changes, couldn't they? Too much trouble for them, eh? Rollocks to them!

Like a number of big business's, they do not inform their customer of changes, its like the television and media adverts "For new customers only"'

Just fancy, if they were to inform all those possible hundreds if not thousands of customers of these changes, how big the hole would be in their financial returns!.

Having stated that, I to have not changed my account from £17.99 to the reduced rate. Possibly just laziness on my part or being a shareholder of Tiscali :o)

  Cybermaxx 10:20 18 Jun 2006

I'll send them a disgruntled email now, anyway. That'll tech 'em to be greedy, eh?! No, it won't make any difference whatsoever, so I might as well not bother. Anyhow, topic "resolved".

You've now found out the reason for regularly checking Tiscali's Upgrade/Downgrade service...:-)

Sometimes an "upgrade" brings a superior speed and a lower price - sometimes you find you would pay more for exactly the same service if you chose the "upgrade" route.....


The changes take place very quickly. What's more Tiscali, when I switched to the £12.99 1MB unlimited from the same service at £14.99, charged slightly less as the following "month" was a couple of days short.

If I wish I could now "upgrade" to the £14.99 version....:-)

Yeah, well never mind this topic now! It's finished! Head over to the Helproom and help me to sort out my new hard drive instead.

Yes Sir/Madam, going there straight away!.
