Applied for the new social tariff Essential Broadband Plus and was accepted, however the bill is NOT £20 per month, it's £28 per month plus an installation/ activation fee according to the email they sent me. Checked on my account and it is indeed £28 per month as stated on the new contract. How can they get away with advertising one price and charging a completely different price.
Does your new contract actually say Social Tarif package?
It's possible that a mistake has been made and you've been placed on the M50 Fibre Broadband (average download speed at peak 54Mbps) and Weekend chatter package. That's £28 a month for 18 months new customer pricing.

In the Key Financial Information it says: Essential broadband plus but in the Fibre Broadband section it does say M-50 Fibre Broadband. The Service Bundle has a green tick under the broadband icon and a minimum period of a 1 month contract with a warning of a possible disconnection fee if cancelled before 23rd February 2023.
As a long standing customer I had to apply via their existing customer application form and don't see how they could have mucked it up. I've tried to sort it out via their web chat, then customer services and finally ringing them but have got no joy whatsoever. I'm not sure what to do now other than make a complaint and possibly refuse to accept the new router which is supposed to arrive today.
Welcome back to the community and thanks for taking the time to post. I’m sorry to hear of the issues that you’re having with your new package. I would be happy to take a further look into this for you but first I would need to confirm a few details via private message, please look out for my message and we can get started.
