Despite Ofcom's rulings, O2 requires an agreement in line with inflation
Just yesterday we heard about a new Ofcom ruling that says mobile customers hit with mid-term price hikes should be allowed to leave their contracts. Today, we're hearing that O2 UK will be requiring new customers to agree to such a thing as part of their contract.
OK, so it's not totally underhanded and greedy, since any increases are to be in line with inflation. But instead of leaving us with the possibility of price increases we could ignore, it now leaves us accepting price increases as part of our contracts. Be it O2 or any of the others, the best thing you can do? Read your contract in full before you sign it. And if you don't like it, walk away.
