As an object lesson in why people should read the tariff pricing before purchase.

Same as the huge differences you can find between Electricity and Insurance prices for the exact same product.

Because they're trying to get you to sign up for monthly contracts of some kind where they know they'll get a regular income off you

Last year they just decided to increase the base charge for internet access from £1 a day to £2 a day on PAYG
