Sure C&W Price Hike

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I see that Sure C&W are increasing the price of Broadband, landline and mobile contracts.

I would imagine that ultimately it will have something to do with Manx Telecom and their new owners squeezing everything they can to grab back for losing so many customers to Sure.

A prevalence of private equity is great in small economies.

I guess Sure's reliance on MT's infrastructure mean one player still does control the market !

if that were the reasoning, there should be a corresponding price increase of MT and Wimanx prices.

Pretty sure it takes more than a couple of weeks to put together a pricing restructure which would also debunk your reasoning but don’t let that curb your enthusiasm, go get em tiger.

I thought MT had just recently increased their prices, certainly broadband, in the past couple of weeks?

ETA Yes, by 5.4% in early April, there's a thread about it.

Yes, but i am not paying through the nose to use it on island for text, calls or data, and that privilege extends to most of the known world.

MT behave like they still have a complete lockdown on the gig.

Is that a pay as you go with three or a contract?

Is it not expensive to ring an iom landline or mobile using the 3 sim?.

I use it myself for all other calls and data but i thought when i last looked they charged a lot to call local numbers, maybe its changed.

Certainly not so far, and nothing like the 40p per minute MT charges to ring a landline from a mobile!

i tend to use WhatsApp for the majority of my calls these days

Just  finally looked it up, calling iom number from uk is £1 to £1.25 per minute, oddly calling iom number from the iom is included in your minute allowance. 

Better than sure or mt though. £20 per month unlimited data, calls and txts at the moment

It is a classic example of how IOM residents are being rinsed on a daily basis.
