BROADBAND ONLY ADVICE

hi all HUKD pop pickers.. Im here to pick your bargain hunting brains.. Basically I'm fed up of Virgin Broadband and their smug Customer Services..I'm currently on 2mb and phone package for £18.99 a month. I'm looking to ditch them and have Broadband only and not the phone landline... Is there anyway of getting this cheaper? Any Ideas? I dont know if it makes a difference but I live in Portsmouth. Many thanks

The best package for you will be with VM. Phone up to cancel and get your broadband up to 10 mb and that should be fine.

You need a phoneline if you want broadband with anyone else. There are alternatives like 3g but that can be costly, slow and patchy.

I've just phoned Virgin Media and they don't seem to want to help... I was initially on 10mbs when I took the contract out last year. I've done speed tests and now the have put me back down to 2mb without telling me. I noticed it was getting slower last week and she told me I had been on it all year.. Why do they lie???

Have a look at Sam Knows. Put in your postcode in the exchange checker and it will tell you who is available through your exchange. Unfortunately you will have to switch your phone line back to the BT socket and get your phone line through someone else apart from VM.

Are you using a cable modem or are you on adsl? If you are on adsl then by the sounds of it you aren't near enough to the telephone exchange to get full 10mb.
I don't think they provide less than 10mb now on their cable lines so thats what it sounds like to me.

if your an o2 mobile customer you can get broadband without phoneline for £8 p/m with up to 20mb download speed and 20gb download limit. If you want unlim downloads then next package up is £12 per month and its the first 3 months free but the free part ends today. Go into store today to also get your half price router which is £15 quid and get £30 bill credit for it so another month and a bit free

Thanks for your help.. Do you have to be on contract or PAYG on O2 mobile for this package?
EDIT.. Just read the t & c's.. You have to top up £10 every 3 months on O2 PAYG.
