  1. This is a classic divide and conquer ruse – Anglian Water do not publish their Lite and Xtra Lite rates. Why not? – Because it is not a real tariff. You have to fill a form in giving detailed information about your life and finances, Anglian can then use this against you to enforce payment and if need be use it against you in court.
    If it was a real Tariff they would publish the rates. They don’t.
    Every water company is required to have a social tariff – Anglian does not have one but this ‘fill our form in and we might tell you’ satisfies that requirement without actually offering anything. Despicable.

    1. Thanks Ben for pointing this out, helpful! I was going to try applying to this but don’t feel confident giving such personal detail to the questions asked and if could be used nefariously. They full of tricks…
