#11
This is true I just got an email ......£1 extra for L TV and £0.99 telephone rental
#12
I would have thought what with mobile phones that they'd be lowering the price of line rental, not putting it up.

we pay £11 a month rental and don't call anyone at all, so £12, i can't see us keeping it :viking:

the trouble is that you are forced to take line rental with virgin.

I pay £17.50 for line rental and 10mb broadband but just bought a pay-as-you-go mobile (free from carphone warehouse after quidco and £10 call credits!) as calls charges on ASDA mobile sim is much cheaper than virgin (even when calling landlines!).

It should do, since the price you will pay isn't what you signed up to. No doubt though, they will try to block any attempt like they normally do. Such a nasty untrustworthy company, but then isn't everything than Branson touches?

im going back to sky after this contract is up - only good thing about virgin is the broadband

ESPN and the extra 5 HD channels you got don't come for free, imagine your price hike if they get the rest of the HD channels they are promising. The only difference between them and Sky is they make everyone pay for the extra channels even if you don't want em. Sky could easily give evryone ESPN if they put up their subs by a £1.

What do you mean `forced` to take line rental?.

You mean i can't just cancel the telephone they will demand that i keep it? :x

surely if you're, say 3months into a 12month contract, they can't just add the increase and make you pay it, can they. Nothing was mentioned 3 months ago, when I signed up to it

As it's a change to the contract you signed up to, you can cancel with no penalties...

I dont think so, as im sure its in the T&C's that they can increase the price if given so much notice

Im sure any company has the right to increase rental by a small amount.

SKY BT Virgin, they all do it.

If:
Virgin Media Ltd, Virgin Media Entertainment and/or Virgin Media Payments increase their respective charges under these agreements ;
Virgin Media Ltd and/or Virgin Media Entertainment make significant changes to the services so the services you are entitled to receive in return for the charges you pay are significantly altered or reduced; or
Virgin Media Ltd, Virgin Media Entertainment and/or Virgin Media Payments make significant changes to the terms and conditions of these agreements (including the other legal stuff ),
you may cancel those services affected without penalty by giving Virgin Media Ltd and/or Virgin Media Entertainment (as applicable) at least 30 days' notice in writing. If you cancel any services in these circumstances, the increased charges will not apply to those services during the 30-day notice period and paragraph J3 will not apply if you cancel before the end of the minimum period . If you do not give such notice of cancellation within 30 days of any increase in charges or changes to the services or this agreement being notified to you or, if later, receipt of your first bill following such increase in charges, Virgin Media, Virgin Media Entertainment (if applicable) and Virgin Media Payments will assume that you have accepted the increase in charges and the changes to the services and these agreements and you will no longer be able to cancel your services under this paragraph.

Taken from Virgin Media's T&C's ( http://allyours.virginmedia.com/html/legal/oncable/terms.html )

So reading that...you have 30 days from 1st April to tell them your not happy and want to cancel.

Thanks for that. I'm thinking that it's 30 days after the price has increased though?
I've got a few months left in my contract and I do want to stay with virgin. I was just thinking whether I could haggle some sort of retention deal out of them? No harm in trying anyway

Good find, but is a £1 extra a month significantly altered?
