Product: Cable FibreX 200

 

Does anybody know why there would be a sudden price increase in my naked broadband price?

 

It has gone from $67.97 to $77.97 in the last month. I'm still getting the $10 discount for having a VF mobile phone.

 

I also pay $4.99 per month for having a static IP address.

My guess is you moved to a new Vodafone billing system. Thats happened to me, after my call they fixed the price back.

Out of curiosity, how did you manage to only pay that price per month? I'm paying $103 for an old Cable plan (w. landline).

As above - $67.97 seems remarkably cheap for naked HFC cable 200/20.

 

I've always paid $81 or more (with landline, and with mobile discount).
