Hi Twoangels, You too are suffering from dropping signals via Virgin.net aka Virgin Media. 2-nights ago this was happening on and off for 6-hours in all. Complained to Virgin Media customer services and they keep on forwarding what can only be described as 'standard / pre-determined' replies insisting that the fault is with customers home phone cabling, ADSL filters, router and so on. Meant to be on an up to 8Mbps package and rarely get download speeds beyond 600kbps which is awful. Problems immediately became apparent on date of migrating from another ISP. Tied into 12-month contract now so migrating from them is not a cheap option.

As for PCGuard. Wish that this had not been downloaded and installed. Better staying with AVG Anti-Virus and ZoneAlarm Free. PCGuard practically brings your PC to a standstill and is very annoying where spyware alerts are concerned. Keeps on suggesting that package is upgraded so that Anti-Spyware is included. Would not recommend that this is downloaded and installed.

Not happy with Virgin Media.

Hi, This offering from Virgin Media is for non-cabled customers.
Wanted to confirm this for you.

Hope this helps.

I have just signed up for this deal having originally signed up for the £15 a month 2mb deal, they quite happily downgraded my price for the same service. Seems like the cheapest around so I thought it may be of interest to some peeps. :-D
#7
I'm on the cable "£10 a month" deal.....and it's fantastc - I'll never go back to ADSL on a BT line again. Solid 2mb day and night.
On the BT line (various people - Pipex, BT and - ironically - Virgin) and it would be all over the place, 4mb one minute, down to 40kb the next.

I'm on the 2 for £20 deal which is supposed to be phone line rental and free local evening and weekend calls - but actually, they usually charge me less than £20 (the bills been as low as £12, is usually around £16 - and once was £24, but it's usually in my favour so i'm not phoning to complain) and it's also go free anywhere off-peak calls and caller display thrown in.

Ace company, if the disorganisation works in your favour - but either way, the broadband is fantastic.
#8
I agree, ADSL is a no-go around my area because of the ancient exchange (maximum 1mbps transfer even though they charge for 2mb and constant drop offs). Cable is definitely the way to go. Roumer has it that they are upgrading their services in September to double speed on all systems, so 2mb will be 4, 4 will be 8 and 10 will be 20 - all for the same price!.

Its OK for you townies but those of us out in the sticks don't get a look in.

VM is without a doubt the best value / quality service out there. If you get a dropped connection then insist on a new modem (you can do it all online).

I pay £25 for telephone line rental and unlimited calls and 10MB B/B but have seen others get better yet. I D/L about 3-5GB a day and never seem to get capped.
#11
All VM Internet services are uncapped during peak & off peak hours.
#12
Also can get £55 quidco with this deal. :-)

Welcome to HotUKDeals and Thanks for the post :)

The link should be okay once Virgin fix the landing page.

The last time I tried to complain to Virgin was when my connection wasn't coming back properly after maintenance in my area had finished. I had to call three times before I got someone who actually spoke English and wasn't scripted, who finally fixed the problem (something to do with modem frequency). The first two people I spoke to told me that the problem was an issue with my anti-virus software, ignoring the fact that I've been running AVG on the same windows install since I got Telewest a few years ago.

Their service really is appauling, and now you have to pay to get through to them :roll:.

Recently experienced the worst service ever with Virgin..I moved into my new flat on the 1st, I am still sat here with no broadband 15 days after my activation date, every email/call was replied to with standare scripted responses and nothing ever got done towards fixing the problem and eventually had enough yesterday when I demanded they remove their service from my line and not to take any payments...which they agreed to (the only plus point for them so far), stating a 5 day cease order....got an email today stating a cancellation date of the 30th (another thing they couldn't get right).

anyway...terrible, terrible service and 25p per minute if they do manage to screw up your broadband. avoid like the plague
#16
I think you find problems with most services, after all you are just a customer number who gives them x amount of £'s a month!. I had the exact same problems as fungus with Tiscali before moving to Virgin, now they where a nightmare!!.
#17
Seen an advert for 2mb broadband this week in the Sun. The price was £4.50, or round about. If anyone has a copy of this weeks Sun have a look, it may have been last week, sorry about the dimness. The service has went downhill since the weirdo with the beardo got involved. Keeps disconnecting during important stuff.

[SIZE=1]I've been on the cabled deal (was £9.99 then, £10 now) for little over 2 years now with very little problem. It was 1Mb to begin with, then upgraded to 2Mb a year later.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]No sight of 4Mb though, unless that's something reserved for certain areas/non-cabled customers only? [/SIZE]
#23
Have been with Telewest/Virgin for about 4 years now and although their customer service isn't all that, I've only been unable to use the internet about twice in all that time!!

I'd recommend it!
#24
from personal experience i would be careful signing up to virgin media/ntl so quickly.

Yes there service is great and had been for the last 3 years but recently had lots of issues with them, they have overcharged on bill, cut off my service for no apparent reason (took 2 weeks to get back -_-) and latly i have been trying to cancel over the phone they promise it will be done but each month (for the last 3 months) nothing ever happens. last option is to just cancel the direct debit and see what happens...

Do one of these connection speed tests over the net to see how fast your connection is, if it's not 4mb you will need to phone them up and find out why you've not been upgraded.
#26
i wouldn't recommend Virgin Media if you do a lot of downloading. I download up to 2 gb a day sometimes and every time they would cap my download speed to 1mb even though i was on the 2mb cable line, eventually they started capping my speed to 1mb when i had only downloaded small files. When i complained and go through to someone in the UK i was constantly told to upgrade to a higher speed, not once did they try and talk me through why they capped my speed when under NTL they never did anything of the sort. I moved to BT broadband a few months ago and they have been great, i was told i would get 6.5mb in my area but i constantly get 8mb download speeds. Only time it's not 8mb is in the evening when it normally downloads at around 2mb.
#27
£10 for 2MB

or if you are threatening to cancel...
u can choose 20MB for £18.50 (Half price of £37)
#28
£10 with sky broadband gives me 8mb and no capping :D

lifes great :D

[SIZE=1]Thanks SG1, I did a speed test as soon as I saw your initial post :p! [/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]Btw, are you on cable or ADSL? From your post it would appear that I should be entitled to the upgrade either way, right? [/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]As suggested, I shall call them to try to get it up to 4Mb.[/SIZE]
