Had a text this morning to say that they are putting up my price by
"4.34% from 8 Jan"

at least hundreds of thousands. It is in most people's contracts that they
can increase by the rate of inflation but the jury is out on whether the
condition was properly advertised or reasonable. moneysavingexpert and
others have commented on it

Yes, but they are saying that they are within their T&C's

The jury seems to be out on whether the terms and conditions are
enforceable. Be interesting to see whether Orange would let a few people
cancel rather than risk a test case.

I think that the small print of their T&Cs permits increases up to the
rate of inflation.

Smile- they have been generous to you and not implemented the full
increase.
