British Gas - Combined
Advantages: None whatsoever - they lie about the advantages and don't deliver them.
Disadvantages: Liars, con artists, high prices.
I am disgusted with the service I have received from British Gas. When the (very pleasant) lady came to my door, I invited her in and gave her a glass of water. She sat on my sofa, cooed over my little girl and told me I would save money on my gas, electric and phone bill. She told me my gas would go up in price by 1p per k/w of energy used - the gas man came round to my house today to change my meter to 16p p/kw instead of the 7p it originally was. This is NOT an increase of 1p (unless my maths skills are out of whack).
She told me that to sign up to the deal with Talktalk/Onetel I would have to sign up for gas and electric with British Gas - Onetel have since informed us that this is, in fact, not true.
We waited for our gas and electric to change for well over a month, in which time British Gas sent us letters telling us to use our new 'Gas card or key' - an item we have yet to receive.
I am now writing to all of my local papers about British Gas, and I am going to encourage those with similar grievances to contact me so we can gain remuneration and an apology for this treatment.
I am not going to put up with someone coming to MY house and more than doubling the price I pay for gas - and lying to my face. I advise all potential customers to ask to see the tariffs per k/w - something they are supposed to show you, and something we didn't know existed. Until now.
Thanks a lot British gas,
I hope you go bust you bastards.
Summary: They lied to me, they lied to my partner, they will lie to you too.
