@drewrr You can't without paying your contract off it is part of the terms and conditions you accepted when you signed up

@drewrr It's in your contract that you agreed to. Did you read the contract before you agreed to it. ?

The RPI increase is in your contract. Also every UK network now implements the RPI increase, so it would be pointless cancelling and moving to another network.

RPI increase is set at 1.8, EE increase is 2.5

@Feralised the CPI is 1.8 the RPI is 2.6
Both the Consumer Prices Index (CPI) and the Retail Prices Index (RPI) measure inflation. Each aim to measure the changes in the cost of buying a 'basket' of products, but they cover different items and differences in formulae used to calculate the inflation rate mean that CPI is often lower than RPI.

Just to add if anyone has entered a contract and is still within the six months period from purchasing the contract and device from EE and you try to use the RPI to get out of the contract EE can or could not saying they would, but EE could request that you return the device in full working order as it's not yours until after six months. As stated in the T&Cs of the contract you agreed too. Not sure if EE would do this but the device is not yours till after 6 months period.

@drewrr And as stated in the T&Cs of a sim only contract the price will be affected by the RPI in march.
Have you actually worked it out what it will be ?

2.5% doesn't seem too bad now. It's 4.1% this year! Thank you Brexit!
They should really build an upper limit into this, e.g. 3% or so.
