Trimble correction services

Just on with renewing my Rtx range point service via Trimble store for £220 / year.
While on the Web page I looked at what other countries are charged for the same signals. Compared to UK, countries such as France, Southern Ireland, Belgium, Sweden etc are charged ; Rtx range point 250 euros(£195 equivalent compared to £220 Uk), Rtx centrepoint standard 895 euros (£698 equivalent compared to £995 Uk) and Rtx centrepoint less than 5 minute initialization 995 euros (£776 compared to £1150 Uk).
Same order numbers etc, all in Europe and only a passcode via email.
Just seems wrong we are treated differently, as at the end of the day we are all in the EU (for now!!) and presume signal will come from same satellites.
Sent an email to Trimble asking why the big differences (especially with centrepoint) and if I could take advantage of range point for 250euros , but only got a reply saying 220gbp and no other explanation (as it is not just down to exchange rates). Asked again then was sent following :- 'Depends on local markets, infrastructure, number of users etc etc'.

Can't believe Southern Ireland is a lot different to rest of Ireland ?

Are we being treated fairly?? Or have I missed something?
