If you are switching provider you can get Virgin Media Cable Broadband (size M) as well (no quidco) and its same price £10 pm (earlier post for VM ADSL) with first month free!!!

Just call their sales team on 0800 9535353 inquiring about this deal. If you go for size L package (£17) you can get free wireless router as part of the promotion posted earlier.

On top of this you could get to trash BT line (savings of £11) and take up vonage (broadband telephony) which gives you a UK number with following plans

Unlimited calling to UK & Ireland £5.99
Unlimited calling to 15 countries £7.99
Unlimited calling to 25 countries £9.99

The voice quality is crystal clear and only takes 32 - 90kbps (max) bandwidth.

I was previously paying £14.99 (virgin.net broadband) + £11 (BT Line rental) + £5 (Sky Talk Unlimited). A whopping total of 30.99 which has now been bought down to 17.99 which is a good 42% saving!!!

Enjoy :-)

You should be in a cable area to avail this offer my friend :roll: - many people still can't go for these services as they are not in the VM cable area.

Plus, you should have mentioned that you moved from VM non-cable package to cable package -- were there any installation or one-off costs charged by VM?

unless virgin have got better ..be wary..speeds are not that great and they throttle..Anne
#3
There are no installation costs for me as the previous occupier had Telewest services and hence I would be sent a quick setup kit.

Forgot to mention you do need to be in Cable area to take up CABLE broadband, luckily I am in an area which has ADSL as well as cable :-))

The feedback that I have got from most of my friends is very encouraging i.e. on a 2mb connection they get download speeds of close to 300kbps. And with download accelerator software installed you can make it extract 4 times faster.

So, I feel Cable broadband and Vonage is a good deal together.

I've been on VM for over a month on the 20mb download connection. You are only capped between 4pm and 4am (If more like 1am) if you download more than 3mb on the 20mb connection. After these hours you can download at full speed. Unlike most of the ADSL ISPs you have no download limited. The ADSL ISPs say they are unlimited but that means unlimited download time. They allow you to download 60gb in a month. Its soon goes once you download a few xbox 360 demos.

customers on the "M" package will be throttled from 2Mb/s to 1Mb/s download speed and 128Kb/s upload once they have downloaded 350MB during the eight hour period. "L" subscribers will be allowed to run at full 4Mb/s speed until they hit 750MB, when downloads will be capped at 2Mb/s and uploads at 192Kb/s. Premium "XL" punters, paying £37 per month for 10Mb/s broadband, will be rationed to 3GB at full clip: anything more will come downstream at 5Mb/s and go upstream at 256Kb/s.
#7
dont forget on the 2 for £20 you can get free freeview (I dropped down from 3 for £30) and kept the digital reciever, it beacuse you take a phone package with them. I now use Skype a lot (dualphone 3088) and i find it very good. The throttling is a bit of a pain but if I want to d/l something large I leave the machine on all night

£40 Quidco cashback for Vonage :)

Do not get Virgin broadband if you care at all for high speeds. Just check out the ISP reviews. I've switched from VM to ADSL24 and am amazed at the difference. At night, VM has horrible speeds.

With a 12 month contract, VM is too risky to sign up with. Look at the Be deal, or check out ADSL24.

ADSL24 are top rate ISP. Easy to talk to, explain everything you need to know. I moved from Nildram and PRIOR to moving over to ADSL24 I was told exactly what package to go for. It is important to understand that some users would be better off on 2MB rather than up to 8MB. I fell into the group that would benefit from upto 8MB. I was promised arround 6MB and get that most of the time

I'm on 4meg with Virgin have very few problems and speed is pretty constant.
#12
My personal experience of Virgin for their broadband is very good, as long as you download heavy ammounts outside of the throtteling period. I'm on 20 meg, and only pay £17 a month for it, along with basic Tv and phone, a V+ box and a second box upstairs for the kids! I must point out, that I'm supposed to be on 2meg broadband, but they havn't downgraded it!

When downloading using newsgroups I get aroind 2400kb/s all the time!

Sorry to post again, as regards to Vonage it sounds good in theory, however the calls to mobiles are far to steep. I'm currently in a 12 month contract with them which expires at the end of this month and I'll be off. Going back to basic NTL bill, and using 18185 prefix to save a fortune.

Vonage charges £7.99 a month after the first 3 months. On 18185 Uk national calls and local calls only cost a 5p connection fee, no matter how long you talk for. There's no charges apart from calls on them, so it would take 160 calls before you reach the £7.99 mark. Calls to mobiles on vonage are 15p day, 10p evenings and 5p weekends. On 18185 they are 6p weekdays and 3p weekends. This is what bumps up our vonage bill

Vonage has recently changed their calling plans and they dont have a 12 month contract though there is a disconnection fee of £24 if you leave within 12 months.

The £7.99 is an unlimited calling package for the 15 countries listed. However I do agree calls to mobiles are a bit steep but I always prefer making calls from my contract phone using cross network minutes. The 7.99 mark includes the line rental which you would usually pay extra i.e. close to £11 if you go with NTL.

Are you having a laugh ?

Cable is the best residential broadband in Britain, I have the Size:L 4Mb connection and it almost constantly connects to my usenet server at 12.5Mb.

It gets a little slower in the evenings sometimes but even then it still beats the **** out of an ADSL package of a similar price.
#16
I'd echo all the good stuff about cable broadband - kicks the **** out of BT-based ADSL, and I'll never go back to it.

The reason I'm changing my plan is because due to retention deal with Virgin I get 20meg broadband, phone and Tv for £17 a month. I'm not going to better this even without the phone as they won't go any lower, so I might as well switch to the 18185 prefix. I don't think I'll make 160 local / national calls anyway so I'll pay less than the £7.99 a month. Then the calls to mobiles I make will be about a third of the cost as vonage, and will save me a fortune!

fryster you jammy son of a bitch, I pay them £25 a month just for the 4Mb connection.
#19
1. Never disagreed with OP, check the post I actually quoted.
2. Virgin/NTL don't cap my connection as well as they should.
3. I don't consider it expensive as my connection is superior to yours.

And before you try to argue with me, please bear in mind that I work for an ADSL ISP so generally I know what I'm talking about.

Say you'd like to cancel as you're going to Sky, who offer TV with Sky+, broadband at 8mb and free phone calls off-peak for £26....and then haggle like mad. There are all kinds of examples of good deals on here from Virgin - for £25, i'd have thought you could get the 20mb.

Do you normally reply an agreement by saying "You're having a laugh"?



My ISP doesnt cap or throttle at all.



Yeh right. A 4Mb connection is superior to a 22Mb one. Are you being serious?



In accounts I hope - and not support!:giggle:


Gimp, I didn't say that to the original poster, I said it somebody who said that cable was an inferior connection and had you have read my original post properly then you would have seen that.

If you care to look into the technologies behind 'broadband' connections, you will find that cable is superior technology in pretty much every way, to be honest I could get a connection like yours for free from work if I wanted to, but I choose not to.

And by the way, I don't work in Support or accounts, I work in port traffic management, I have a Ba in Computer Science, an A+, 3 MCP's and I'm currently studying for my Ma at university.

To be honest, I'm happy with what I pay for it, like I said my speed is supposed to cap at 4Mb and I can get up to 13Mb out of it, it's completely unlimited and most importantly it's extremely reliable.

The cable companies have it hard enough anyway with people ripping them off left right and centre and there's no way in hell I would have ADSL so I'm cool with paying them the asking price.
