price of 100meg - £35p/m
because your 50meg contract was for £35p/m they will keep charging you that even after the price of the 50meg line has gone down to make way for the new top tier package of 100meg for £35.
so essentially right now you are paying for 100meg and just not getting it man.
they've done this every time they've upgraded the lines. they must have made thousands and thousands off of customers not noticing this discrepency.
i accept beer and cookies as thankyou gifts for saving you all the money you didnt notice you were giving them.
also, when using speedtest.net, i exclusively use the london server that is hosted by "namesco" as it's the only one out of the lot in the uk that is on a 1gbps fiber line and thus has the bandwidth on their end to actually give you a true measure of your line speed.
