Virgin Media are offering £150 cashback at Quidco for NEW customers.

This means that you can signup for the 10Mb package and it works out to be equivalent of £10.17 per month for the first year.

This is also a great deal if you're thinking of signing up for their 50Mb package, which is unaffected by Traffic Management. I also believe that 100Mb Broadband is coming soon, so you may be able to upgrade easily through your contract, I doubt they will upgrade all 50Mb users to 100Mb for free, but they did upgrade some lower speed customers to 10Mb in the past.

10Mb Package Example:

Phoneline - £11 per month (£132 per year)
Broadband - £12.50 per month (First 2 months free) (£125 per year for first year)
Self Installation Option - £15 (£35 if you want them to install it)
Total first year: £272
Quidco Cashback: £150
Total first year: £122
Total per month: £10.17
Total per month (if you want them to install (£35)): £11.83

It works out cheaper to get a Broadband with a phoneline, even if you don't use it.

I know some people complain how awful Virgin Media are, and sometimes they my be, but I've been with them for around 5 years now and everything has been perfect. My current 10Mb broadband has a maximum of 9.4Mb to around 8.9Mb, so it's near enough the top speed, definitely faster than what I would get with a BT line.

The cashback at Quido reduces to £50 at midnight tomorrow, so make sure you order it before then.

I hope I've done all the maths right, please correct me if I haven't!

Emmm dude with virgin you get 2 months free

:L the amount of people that post VM deals and say you can do self installation.
You can only do self installation on broadband and phone IF you already have one of their services.
Initial installation requires them to pull cable from a metal grate, plumb this to a grey box on the side of your house and then cable this to points inside your house.

Virgin Manned installations cost £30 i think.

VM Broadband is NOT unlimited as stated. The traffic is severely restricted down to crawling if you play games or watch online tv. C**p service. Telephone charges outside your free allowance are more expensive than BT. Cold from me. (Quidco is NOT guaranteed, so there is a chance that you end up paying full price)

If you phone up and complain you should be able to get a loyalty discount, I pay £28 a month and get 10MB BB and also Unlimited 24/7 phone package, I think it is about a £20 a month discount they give you, had it for years now.

Regarding the BB, it is rubbish now that they have had traffic shaping had, meaning that you can not download more than 2GB from 9am to 9pm, if you do your speed drops to 2MB BB for about 5 hours or so before going back up to 10MB BB, download more again and your speed will drop again.

I recently signed up to virgin three weeks ago.

To tell you the truth I think ive got a good deal.

£12.50 - Broadband cost
£11.22- Line rental

£30 credit for friend who recommended me (who will give that credit back to me)
£30 credit in to my account for signing up

Free installation ( which is £35 one off cost)
2 months free

Unlimted downloads
and free weekends call to 01,02,03 numbers also after April free calls to virgin mobiles at the weekend
also recieved a free wireless router.

Because i did not have a phone line connection in my property it worked out cheap to go with virgin as the rest like bt charge about £100 just for connection fees.

No quidco /cashback needed

service is good as its cable .

you really think they are going to give you totally unlimited broadband, blimey its good enough as it is.

severely restriced down, never noticed that
cr*p service, nope its gone down for me 3 times in 5 years, and every tie given a part refund of the month.
telephone charges outside your free allowance, well dont go outside an allowance. its a only a few £££'s to upgrade to the next free minutes, so why not just upgrade to L or XL and get free calls 24/7.

quidco is not guaranted, hmmm yep but you can start a ticket enquiry and they will then give you the money.
obviously you dont download more than 2gig in one go if you did you would certainly spot the difference,bescause going from 10meg to 2meg or slower certainly lengthens your downloads especially if you use news servers which if you are,then you dont get the full benefit if virgin slow you down,i dont download big files very often sometimes godays without using the internet so does get to me when you try to download a big file only for them to slow your connection down

got vm broadband+phoneline £10.45 was switching to sky broadband phone and skyHD deal but found could not get free sky broaband .VM called me for permission for sky to have phone number and offerd me phone line (free evening and weekend calls )+broadband all in for £10.45 a month also its a 18month deal as well
#17
Heat for effort, but as already said numerous times, Quidco is never gauranteed!

Virgin are a strange one and you never know quite what your service will be like. In some areas its wonderfull (I was a reasonably happy customer for 3+ years untill the STM came along and it hurt!). Other areas suffer from oversubscription, infact the whole network is showing the result of about a decade of lacklustre investment.

There broadband is stupidily overpriced to start with anyway, even this deal at £10 for ~10Mb broadband these days is far from a bargain. Factor in STM, their inability to bill anyone correctly, for anything, ever, and all the other crap such as phorm type "services"... Pass.. Been with O2 for 13months now. Get double the speed, three times the upstream and zero traffic managment all for tenner. My only regret is it took O2 so long to reach me down ere in Devon!

100Mb would they have to do a new installation from a 50Mb connection?

so download outside of traffic shaping hours

Virgin advertise unlimited downloads, you get unlimited downloads. At least they don't hide what they do, unlike many adsl companies who have a fair use policy but won't tell you what it is!

Of course it's not unlimited, there's no tradition or old charter or anything that states only download caps can be called limits. If it's got any limits that couldn't reasonably be removed then it's not unlimited and in this case it's got speed limits.

They do list their traffic shaping which is a good thing, but they're not exactly upfront about informing people about it. In fact sometimes they're outright misleading, for example here it says:

"We think you deserve more. So no matter which of our fibre optic broadband packages you chose, you get unlimited downloads. That means you can download as much music, as many films and as many photos as you want without having to worry about going over any kind of limit."

I dont see anything misleading with that statement. I have personally downloaded over 300gb last month alone (my 1tb hard drive is nearly full after just over 3 months since I've had virgin media. I'm on their basic broadband package and unlike other providers I've tried in the past, not once have they written to threaten me. It only makes sense to regulate traffic at certain times of the day so those who dont download a lot dont suffer any bandwidth issues. If you are a heavy downlader like myself, simply leave your heavy torrents downloading overnight. If nothing at all, with virgin cable broadband, for normal browsing, watching youtube viddeo clips and things not involving heavy downloading, you speed is guaranteed to be pretty much the 10, 20, or 50mb unlike you will have with any other company.

We pay £14pm for our 10mb broadband (6 months at £12 then 6 months at £16).

Began on the 2mb BB only for £9pm, which was due to go up to £17pm after 12 months. Rang up at the end of the 12 months and negotiated the above deal.

Any broadband has speed limits, I would have thought that was obvious. It refers to no limit on what amount you can download, obviously how much will depend on your package and speeds.

How is that misleading?
