Been looking for a basic cheap virgin media deal and this is the cheapest i've found for new customers! all 3 services for £20!! Plus you get £50 credit on your bill and £65 Quidco!! + possibly a free wireless router worth £40!

* Up to 2Mb fibre optic broadband
* Over 40 digital TV channels
* On Demand TV - access to over 500 films, 1000s of TV shows and music videos, plus BBC iPlayer on your TV. All starting when you say so!

sounds a great deal with the credit and quidco!
#2
Heat added, good deal but it is not in my area :(
#3
am thinking of going for this 1 sounds pretty cool
thanks opp for the find
#4
fibre optic broadband ? good bit of marketing if you ask me, the fibre optic stops at the street cabinet, it is then a coax/copper cable to the house, bit of a con. a true fibre to the home or business can transmit and receive 10 gb (not mb) using sdh, no problem.
#5
I'm with Virgin, I have 2mb of broadband, phone line, all channels bar sky sports and movies but because I have the XL package I get Setanta thrown in with the deal for £40.50 per month, receive bill on line so get a quid discount for that making it £39.50.

The way I looked at it was that I was paying AOL £10, Macfee £3, BT £11 so thats £24, for less than 16 quid I get all the tv channels my little heart desires :p

One thing I will say about Virgin is that I have found there customer service and their follow up to a problem as being excellent. Any problems with my broadband or technical etc, I phone free from my Virgin line and before 6 at night you can guarantee speaking to someone in the UK who so far has resolved any problems or issues I have had.
#6
Got this flyer in the mail today myself.

Virgin Media gave the most incompetent customer service I've ever had. When cancelling I had to ring up several times to close an account and then badger them for a refund they owed after I was continuously overcharged.

Also hacked off with them now because they're laying off a huge number of people but have paid Samuel L. Jackson a 6 figure sum for a TV ad.

But if you aren't me, appears to be a good deal!
#7
Is it £20 for the full term of the contract or for an initial period...I will go read the T&Cs as this could be perfect for the new house! Trouble I have is I look at the services and then want 10mb BB, then Virgin+ and it all gets expensive at that point! Lol!

I agree to whatever he said :whistling:

One of my customers lays the bundles and said something like that... was to busy day dreaming.... to it sounded something like the above.....

So.... still fast for what it is though.... at times a pain e.g. 6-10pm
#9
The latency for gaming is fantastic with Virgin, highly recommend even on their Small 2mb connections.
#10
Installation charges apply even if you install it yourself...

Installation charges apply (starting from £30 for standard install and, subject to availability, from £10 for Quickstart self-install)

Also extra £40 if you want a router modem,and these days most people will
#11
Hot!

Shame I'm already a customer (i was on a rolling contract, told them bt was better value, got them to upgrade from 2mb to 10mb and it cost £4.50 less :-D)

Give them a call (150 -it's free!) and compare what you are paying/getting to bt(or whoever gets you the best deal - link is for when googling is too slow)

I also got a free wireless router (£7 delivery) after upgrading to 10mb

tell me how!!!! i want more mb :)
#13
Ive got the 2mb broadband, perfect for surfing, but take note if you plan on p2p etc! What they call unlimited is not unlimited at all. The broadband speed is halved once you have dowloaded around 500mb. I think they call it STM! also with p2p you often have to upload the amount you download, with virgin what takes 1hr to download may take 10-15 hrs to upload the same amount! terrible upload speeds IMO.
#14
seems a good deal, i think virgin arent bad at all customer service and overall service,
i got 2mb broadbandf, phoneline, v+ box (which was free), addidtonal box, xl tv pack and sky movies/sports package for £59 a month

My personal experience is that they have improved quite a lot over the past year or so (a bit iffy if you ring them out-of-hours as the offshore people give the impression that they have limited access to the systems). Rang them about some lost channels during the day two weeks ago - phone answered within a few rings...guy who answered had all my channels back within 5 minutes. My bills have been correct for a while now too (there I go tempting fate).

I read today that M&S (another big advertiser) are planning to make a lot of redundancies - word is they are trying to find ways around the normal consultation period too. Its a sad reflection on the current economic climate I'm sorry to say.

Anyhow, based on my recent good experiences with Virgin's services, have some heat.
#16
Anyone know if you can get just the V+ tv pack, no BB, no phone toot? I have BT and Be and frankly I'm happy with that and won't touch Virgin's 'unlimited' BB with a dump-laden stick.
#17
Yeah i think VM have improved over the years. A few months ago i called to complain that u have been with them for 6 years and why is it that new customers are getting all the best deals? At the time i was 7 months into my latest 12 month contract, but they offered me a very good deal which reduced my rental by £10 a month.

- XL Phone Line whice includes free calls 24/7 to landlines and 25% discount to mobiles and cheaper international calls.

- Large Broadbnad 10mb (at that time it was 4mb though, now 10)

- Basic TV package.

Total cost, £26.50 per month!
#18
take note, virgin throttle the connection whenever they feel like it, you tube is awfully slow during the evenings and so is most US sites.

Add to this virgin customer services has the most rude, patronising poeple on the earth....

Also when virgin say " 10meg!!!!! they mean you can get up to 10 meg speeds, so even if you end up with 1 meg they wont care.

Voted cold, go with sky, with virgin you will regret it, i did.
#19
friend of mine had it the xmas week, and gone wrong 3 times already ??? phone worked , no broad band, then phone not working, broad band ok, now broad band not working ???.they tried to fix it tonight, gave up now, till lord knoes when.....said prob with the box on the street ???..as each time anyone goes to work in the box, someone as a prob ???..not for me i think......also very, very hard to contact................
#20
shutdown
tell me how!!!! i want more mb :)


If you are already with virgin and your contract has ended then you will be on a ongoing monthly contract (negotiate!)

call them (number is 150 - free), say that bt etc offer a better deal (in my case it was faster for the same price) and they should offer a deal that is faster/cheaper
#21
Do you get the feeling Virgin are just trying to p**s Sky off so they will make a bid for the company?
Then, If they do buy it ,what are the chances Virgin will be exactly the same price as Sky?
Or dearer?
#22
Landline works fine until you have a problem.
BB, service is pants. you download 400mb and rest of the day you need to struggle to get atleast 130kbps speeds.
TV no big deal.

I had them for a year. BB brokedown four times and 3 times turned out to be their scheduled shutdown but they dont feel like telling you that in advance.

Avoid at all costs if you can. especially withe their throttle for BB....ohh....
#23
my last one was my phone went down for a week, took them a week to come out. Seems one of the engineers " accidently" disconected me from the box up the road!.

Idiots all round IMO.
#24
Just to bring a bit of balance back to things on here ive had Virgin since they took over blueyonder.

My dad , when he was alive strimmed through the cable at my old house, then did it again at my current house.... Nugget! Both were repaired within about 3 days F.O.C.

also

Last year i rang and asked if i could have a wireless router for free because every other ISP gave them away free. They said they couldnt give me one free but they would credit my account with £40 and i could go buy my own!

Pretty good customer service if you ask me!
#25
As a balance, I get 10mb speeds on my 10mb connection, and it's bang-on every single time I test it. I previously had 2mb, and then 4mb, and every single time I did a speed test then, it was exactly the same.

No offence Stepp, but I think you're talking about ADSL not Cable broadband. With cable, as far as I know from my experience and others I know, with cable you get what they tell you you've got.

I've had one problem in about 2 years, which was resolved within 5 minutes.

My bill is often a bit baffling, but usually less than I think it should be. I called to go from 2mb to 4mb and got a lovely person who managed to do so for just £4 extra a month with a free wireless modem thrown in. That 4mb then went to 10mb automatically a few months later.

As far as broadband and phone lines go, it would take a phenominally good deal from Sky/BT to get me to change.

Now, as for their telly....bag o ****.
#26
tried them last year...1 month after my broadband activation date and being fobbed off and told the techs would phone me back and not doing so and having to phone back again and go through the whole process again we still couldn't get it to work, cancelled, went with sky and had no problems.

(from the T&C it would appear there is a £70 installation fee - £40 for the broadband for some reason and £30 for the vbox)

virgin do throttle, there is no degradation in speeds like adsl but they physically reduce your speed
#28
@ our dave,,,,err no mate im on about cable. Maybe you dont use the net as frequent or as usefully as i do so you wouldnt notice on how much throttlling goes on and which sites struggle etc.

Its people like you they love, low users who dont use the net much and see great speeds......thats what virgin media love.

I got a deal with them 3 for £30 (basic tv, phone and internet) last April when moved into my new house. I ordered it online and got all installation charges free. The guy was at the house for about 2 hours. Would recommend Virgin, their all the same really. Not had many problems. Phone stopped working once and called them on the mobile, they called it back so it wasn't costing me and had someone out within a day or two, fixed it no problem.

Only problem that does annoy me is the internet wasn't working once and I called 150 free and they told me I had to call the Broadband hotline(50p a minute by the way) you get sent through to a call centre in India and they can hardly understand a word you're saying but got it working in the end. They do refund the call if it is their fault but only if you ask.

At this price it is a great deal! Wish I had known about the quidco cash back when I ordered it!

There isn't a provider in the uk that allows the same upload speed as download, virgin as far as im aware have prett y good upload speeds compared to others do they not?

How much would this same package cost with sky?
The cheapest I can see is £16.50 for one tv pack, £10 line rental, and free 2mb broadband, but you only get 2gb a month with that, to get unlimited downloads you have to pay an extra tenner so £36.50 a month.

I'm a mile off being a low user. Do a fair bit of gaming, shed load of movie downloads every month, work from home a fair bit so lots of large email attachments going back and forth across VPN links. I know a few people on cable, and we all love it and would be hard pushed to go back to ADSL.

I must say i've never had a problem with youtube etc on a night, and i certainly download more than average, between 100 and 150gb a month usually!
Just schedule any downloads outside the hours they apply traffic management, not hard to do!

Like big LOL's, you say that like you get a bargain :w00t:

I think Virgin customer promotions are total pants myself. I have had a 2mb broadband connection on a rolling contract for nearly two years. The cheapest they will give me is £10 per month for a 2MB line despite the fact the router has been paid for three times over (and its not even wireless). I phoned to disconnect last week cos I took up the O2 deal listed a while back and they tried to tell me the most my line could handle was 1/2 mb despite the fact bt and O2 both confirm it between 4-7mb (Iying gits). They have never offered lower than £10 per month despite the fact I could get a free router and greater download speed with loads of other providers for similar or less. to top it off they keep putting it back up to £18 every 6 months and you have to go through the whole procedure of cancelling and waiting for their sales team to ring and offer this paultry deal. I have also just had Sky installed because they could not get anywhere near matching the deal that was offered. This company reportedly lost £300 million in one quarter last year and I think with this so called legendary customer support they will go under. Good bye Virgin and good riddence:thumbsup:

Saying that this seems a good deal HOT ::p
#34
We have

XL TV
2mb Broadband...free router...they do slow it down in the evenings (even wrote to me to tell me it was because of naughty downloaders)
Landline

£30 a month

Also got 2 mobile sims 300 minutes and 300 texts for £10 a month each.

Had very little need to ring them.
#35
virgin give approx 10% upload speed, other suppliers ive had have been far better. The reason i stick with virgin is i dont have to purchase line rental as with adsl. All i say is try surfing the net while someone is online gaming and its almost impossible!

I would rather they halved my speed than cut me off completely.

With EVERY single other provider that needs a BT line they have a fair usage of 40GB some have more - but ALL have limits.

Downloading a few HD movies say at 1080p (about 8-11GB) you would struggle to download 4 of them!

Virgin media are a little more upfront with their 'fair usage' than others.

I can understand why they do it though, if your downloading more than 1GB during the day they will have your speed between 4-10pm. But thats OK as during the night I can download at full speed. They just want to provide other light users with better service than those that do huge amounts of downloading all the time.
#37
and thats another thing, glad you pointed that out BeerGoogles, my bill often creeps to £18 when its only a tenner, happened 3 months in a row. Constantly on the phone to the nice Indian fella sorting it out! thankyou please!

This was an offer they ran before they provided routers themselves. I also took advantage of the deal in reverse order - bought a router - emailed receipt copy and was given refund. Now they will provide a Belkin router - free to some customers or charge for the others.

This used to be a pain for me too! But it is no longer the case - Virgin's technical team are actually free to contact now.
#39
Im very happy with the virgin deal we got although i think mine is one of and not meant to of happened!

Signed up to:
V+ Box with XL Pack (whole lot bar movies and sky sports)
L Broadband (10mb, with free wireless router)
M Phone(weekend calls)
for £49 per month on a 12 month contract = £588 for year

Credits i got were:
Xmas on us £88
Broadband+TV £50
Refered by a friend £30
Quidco £80
Total £248

Total cost for the year = £340 (or £28 per month)

I realise i was lucky to get this, altough hows this for karma, my sky hasnt been turned off after the cancelation date, i called to complain and was told my billing had stopped and it was free for now and to stop complaining!!!! :oops:
#40
just a though for everyone, I was fooled to believe what the sales person told me..."the 2MB virgin broadband is equivalent to BT's 8MB+ broadband" ... after getting it and installing it and using it for just over 2weeks, in terms of BROWSING, I can say that the speed is alike, but when it comes to downloading, I have tested the same downloading software from the same source and BT was giving me between 200-400kb's per second on a 100mb file from rapidshare while virgin was struggling to get to 100kb's on average 70kb's per second.

So think twice before you get excited.

The virgin broadband is located in N15 at my partners house, while the BT is located in SW18 at mine if that makes any difference.
