I am, I will keep you posted@Housefund123 & @gobbomincer I would strongly recommend you take this to the FSO for resolution. AIB appear to be the only bank calculating it differently to everyone else and they should be held to account on this practice. You can also claim the loss in the rate from what you wanted to break until the fixed period expired.
Its a straight forward enough complaint - backed up by regulation and standard practice, and therefore should be a relatively easy one to submit and get a judgement on, and its likely the bank may have to change their practice as a result
Go for it !
