Have British Gas broken nearby contract due to the 7% rise contained by charges?

I have found a much cheaper gas supplier, First Direct.
British Gas say they will charge me lb30 if I devolution supplier but surely their price increase means they have broken our previous contract.
I reaction your comments.
RIP OFF BRITAIN now the nasty shindig are back in power, the unsound face of capitalism rears its bizarre head, with the blessing of this policy, most likely a donation is winging its instrument to tory coffers. trust the nasty party to privatise slavery
The small print would probably show that they own anticipated this possibility.
My experience was the "contract" I signed with a cellular phone company who were able to levy a substantial charge for "breaking" the contract when I left the country to pursue a better job elsewhere.
These companies also enjoy standing contracts with law firms who will communication you letters of demand at the drop of a helmet.
Modern business practice?
Depends on what you agreed with them. For instance, if you're on a fixed-price deal that expires contained by a few months - say April 2011 - then you aren't artificial by the price rise until then, but you are still liable for a penalty charge for withdrawing from your contract previously the fixed-price period comes to an end. You'll own to read your agreement carefully to check exactly what it says.
