I'm looking to cancel my UPC tv service due to the recent price increases making Sky too hard to resist.
Now I am tied into a 12 month contract with them, but I've seen on another thread that your not liable for a contract cancellation fee if they change the initial agreement that you signed up to.
What i'm asking is for a few opinions on whether or not a price increase constitutes a material change in the terms and conditions as per 12.(i) in this paragraph from the UPC terms and conditions:

You may cancel the Services at any time, and the minimum period obligations contained
in Paragraph 3 will not apply, in the following circumstances:
(i) if we materially change the Terms and Conditions as per Section 16 you may
terminate this Agreement in accordance with that section;
(ii) if we increase your Charges for the Services by more than fifteen (15) percent in any
twelve (12) month period, you may terminate your use of such Services by notifying us
within 30 days of such increase. During that notice period the increased Charges will
not apply to you;
(iii) if we significantly reduce the content of the Services you may terminate this
Agreement by giving us one month’s notice within 30 days of such change.
Of course, if I cant find a reason for cancellation that satisfies one of the clauses above then I'll just have to stump up any fees they charge me, but i'd like to avoid giving them another cent if possible.
Thanks in advance
