The barstewards have just put my tariff up by another £4pcm.... Been slowly creeping upwards for years :(

Now just over £50 pcm for a pretty basic TV / landline / broadband package.

Time for a shift for me.

Same with me:(. Can we just call for termination due to price up?

yes, just say you're leaving and going to BT or Sky and they've offered you £XX for phone and broadband, they'll start haggling for you to stay. you've got until the 31st to cancel without an exit fee if you're still under contract

I was told it's starts on the 35th of this month and that were all getting sky Atlantic and other imaginary things. Virgin are liars even if you have it in writing, so don't believe anything ive just mentioned either

the thing with virgin is they do not reward long standing customers unless you ring up and ask them,then they will do there best to lower your bills,so might be worth you giving them a call

Agree with ironglaive.
Not happy with virgin at all, was told, when reducing my package that we would still be able to use all phones, iPads etc on the lower broadband package, that was rubbish was also told my package would cost a certain amount when infact it was dearer. The reason for my reduction was because my husband had just lost his job and could afford the £130 pm top package. When I agreed to the lower package it tied me into another 12month contract that was 12 months of sh*te service. and I can wait for it to end!!!

the 35th? what day of the week is that?
#11
must admit...price has gone up £7 for basic package, and broadband reliability has dropped right off. Paid for 12 month line save in April so effectively locked in until then...gits

It's still the best value on the market for what you get. Not saying it's not now too expensive for existing customers but sooner or later someone is going to find out just how much existing customers supplement the new offers and do something about it. If I could find the same service for a lower price I would move tomorrow but I won't use Sky and I don't trust BT. I looked at the Vodaphone offering because the said no landline fees but that turned out to be BS of the highest order. So unless I lie and try to con a cheap rate I'll have to stump up, but I plan to move next years so I'll be looking at one of those new customer deals then :-)

Yes you can there is a clause in the contract which states if they put price up you can leave, but............... when you call they will come up with some bs excuse for rise (inflation, the value of the pound etc) and say they can't go any lower, so Give them 1 month notice. Within a week they'll call back and do the same deal you were on or better.

I went around to a mate's house last week to set up a Chromecast audio multi-room system for him. At home I have 55/20 Mbps fibre to the Cabinet from Plusnet. I pay £10 per month for the broadband and £15ish for line rental via Line Rental Saver and Plusnet charged me a one off fee of £5 for a static IP.

My mate pays Virgin more than £110 per month for supposedly 100Mbps broadband and TV with Sky Sports and a couple of really crap mobile contracts. His broadband is awful, traffic managed to death on the download and dreadful upload speeds.

I don't see how you could think Virgin is good value.

Exactly what has happened to me. I got the letter about a £3.50 price hike. I'm 7mo this in to my contract and told them I want to leave now. They have called me a few times since but I never answer.

New customers get discounted monthly fee for 12 months, quite often a free gift and various other bonuses like using a code for £50 off your bills and quidco for £40-£100 extra.

I love these price hikes because I get all the above by cancelling my deal and getting my fiancée to start a new contract in her name instead

I had a letter saying there was going to be a price increase of £3.49 per month so I called up and cancelled. Was only 2 months into my 18month contract with no penalties. I did have to give 30 days notice for TV and broadband and took my number over to sky. I couldn't get use to the TV interface and the 200mb broadband is not very good. I have 36mb with sky and it feels faster.

There is no "traffic management" on the download link...

You're nice, aren't you?

Whatever the cause, my Vodafone 4G with two bars as a Wi-Fi hot-spot in his living room was quicker than the supposed 100Mbps broadband.

It's nothing to do with any clause, it's OFCOM that have stipulated that if an in contract increase is more than inflation then you can leave if you want.

Mind you, probably not be that long till inflation is running at 10% at this rate and that will probably match the next price rise lol.

In contrast, my 70Mbps connection with Virgin Media is ALWAYS stable at around 72Mbps.

I guess I am quite lucky when it comes to my subscription with Virgin then, after reading all the negatives here.

I get 150mb download speed and 12-14mb upload, I consistently get max speeds, extremely minimal downtime.

I originally had BB and phone, costing me £28 a month, I had 50mb speed and basic phone package, I phone up for loyalty discount, got upgraded to 70mb for free, they added £5 off for loyalty discount, I paid off 12 months line rental, which put my bills to around £18 per month.

2 months later, my net went down for a few hours, (was due to damage to the green box in the area), they gave me another free upgrade to 150mb, and added TV to my package for free, which actually reduced my bills a bit further,

since then, no downtime, no hassle and no problems.

I learnt some message are not worth replying to, ie. THE EXPERTS. When he can set up a worldwide distributed VPN using a ACE server, MS Proxy & Firewall One or a network serving 30,000 people he'll be worth my time. Mind you when I did I only had ISDN to work with :-)

I thought this was a Virgin Mobile deal. I dont know why everyone is talking about Virgin Media. Relating to the Virgin Mobile sale, I dont see any offers. OP should really elaborate on what the sale is rather than just tell us to log in and have a look.

Ah... someone as old as me. I didn't realise that BT are still offering ISDN2, with an "up to" install fee of £370 and £23 per month, per channel. Them were the days!

Anyway, as regards Virgin broadband - haven't found anything better for where we live and even when we have a full house with the kids staying (iKids) no issues with traffic management slowing things down.

I was suspicious when they offered a "free" upgrade to the hub, along with the increase in speed. Test it regularly (sad I know) and it rarely drops below 92Mbps.

I would not know if the are or not, I left that work long behind me but still have an ISDN box here in the house with a little red light so I suspect someone somewhere is paying for it but it's not being used for Maybe ten years :-)

As I say I agree VM are simply the best on offer, I can't see how anyone can argue with us on that fact. Even the service staff have been transformed. I just like supplementing lairs and fake new customers, of cause no everyone who calls to say they are moving to BT have no intention to but it's become a common & recommended way to get a price reduction.
