virgin media retentions, cancellation and whete to move?

£0.00 @ Virgin Media
Hi guys, I've left Virgin due to utilisation issues in the area and have handed my notice in. Will anyone from retentions get in contact to offer a better deal, do you think it's worth waiting?…

Hi guys,

I've left Virgin due to utilisation issues in the area and have handed my notice in.

Will anyone from retentions get in contact to offer a better deal, do you think it's worth waiting?

Secondly, who has the best broadband? I'm not bothered about TV but I'll need a landline.

Thank you

How long has it been since you handed your notice in? I got a call 2 days after I cancelled my contract and was offered 100mb broadband (upgraded to 150mb) for £22 a month without a phone line and that was discounted down from £38/month

Same boat.
Currently on promotional period of 24/mnth for 50mbps plus phone, going to 40/mnth next month.
Cancelled on phone and got some stupid offers on spot which i rejected(minimum was 36/mnth).
Got call 2 days after (today) and best offer was 28/mnth for 75mbps plus phone. (he said cant go lower as I use >100Gb/mnths probably due to 4k netflix streaming).
Rejected the offer and now thinking have I made the right decision?

They will call, just be prepared with the best price you can find with cash back

Thanks guys, I did mention to the operator to ring my mobile if they need anything, hopefully they do.

Don't want to phone up and say 'can you cancel my cancellation please' lol.

But in the worst case scenario, which ISPs are generally 'OK'?

If you have a utilisation issue, even if virgin did call you back and offer you a mega speed for little money then issue would still be there. I was in the situation as you, a virgin operator lied to me and said increasing my speed would fix it, I believed him and I was locked into another contract (18 months) before i realised it made no difference. To cut a long story short I eventually argued my way out of the contract and joined sky.
My speed with sky is 40 odd mb and it's been faultless. Even with 2 ps4's playing online and someone else streaming HD movies at the same time - it barely drops in speed. I pay sky £20 a month for a phone line and unlimited broadband. Good luck.

Problem is, I'm not sure if there's an active BT line to my property.

It might require digging up the drive.
