The legal stuff

*Virgin Media Broadband: Your price may increase during your minimum term. If this happens, we will notify you and you can leave both your Virgin Media Broadband and O2 mobile Airtime Plan without paying an early termination fee.

*O2 sim: Each year your O2 mobile Airtime Plan will be increased by the Retail Price Index (RPI) rate of inflation announced in February plus 3.9%. If RPI is negative, we’ll only apply the 3.9%. You’ll see this increase on your April 2022 O2 bill onwards. Since this increase is provided for within your agreement, you will not be able to leave without paying an early termination fee as a result. See o2.co.uk/prices.
