Your analogy is only correct until the point where the T&Cs are brought to
the table.
So, according to me, the problem here is simple – you did NOT read their
Even Safaricom used to do this with some bundle that they had and TBH, I
don\’t remember anyone complaining about it.

Now we just need to find out if Telkom and JTL are the exceptions in this
saga. I highly doubt it.

When you _CHANGE_ a tariff, it only makes sense that you want your new
service level to adhere to the new tariff, not to the old and the new – the
old ceases, the new takes over.
