Bulb is in special administration. The business will still trade for now and anyone switching to them will have that completed.

That’s doubly good because you can use a Bulb to make a really good model of an octopus.

Good riddance to Bulb. Awful provider.

No complaints about Octopus.

By the way, Octopus usually offer free cuddly octopuses to their customers, but they're currently out of stock - stick a note in your diary to head back to https://octopus.energy/blog/octopus-toys/ on October 8th to register.

Can confirm my first spanking took place on 1st July when my direct debit doubled - now on the Standard Variable Rate and subject to the Ofgem price cap.
