Just got off the phone to Virgin seeing as my contract was up and im fed up with the restrictions on my 20 meg broadband service. Im usually pretty good at haggling and always go through to retentions as they do the better deals. Now... im an existing customer so i know sometimes you dont get as good a deal as new but what do you guys recon. The guy offered me a new deal but did state that i AM NOT bound to a new contract and this was still coming up as a rolling contract each month, which is good coz i can still cancel at any time. Anyway the deal i got offered after all the usual mentioning of Quidco and Sky is:
50 Meg BB + free installation, although £20 activation still applies.
Phone XL talk unlimited anytime
Now after haggling a bit he agreed that for the first 6 months i would pay £33.60 and then after 6 months this would go up to £45.95. But like i say the contract is rolling so i am not bound for another 12 months anyway and in theory can re call then once the first 6 months is up ;-)
I was more interested in the V+ box and XXL tv but he said that all he could do was free installation and £51.50 for the first 6 months then £65 thereafter, obviously with the non tv services i quoted above..
So do you guys think the V+ TV XXL is worth it for what theyve quoted or is that a pretty standard figure ? Also i know some people quote pretty good deals on what they are paying... but i dont think this is too bad for mainly the BB 50meg and talk unlimted phone. Any thoughts ?
