Tariff (monthly rates)
Standing charge - £5 per subscriber
Rate per 20 GB - £1.50
20GB - £6.50
40GB - £8.00
60GB - £9.50
There is no upper limit to the monthly quota just add £1.50 per additional 20 GB.
All subscribers pay a £132 premium which is equivalent to the additional amount paid by basic service subscribers who joined in December 2014 when the tariff was higher.
This is collected as a monthly surcharge of £11 for anyone using 40 GB or more per month.
The equivalent rates are:-
40GB - £19.00
60GB - £20.50
When the £132 premium has been paid the rates drop to £8.00, £9.50 etc.
We still offer our original rate of £13.50 per month for 20 GB and this will accumulate the £132 premium in 19 months when the rate will drop to £6.50.
