Just spoke with them via chat and If you wish to use the data allowance in abroad, you can only use 7GB...`as it was set up for tethering when you use in abroad.`
Just found out this after placing my order...

Do u have to be a virgin customer already?


I'm not sure they actually care about any of our personal lives to that degree of detail...

Music streaming at High Quality, occasional Netflix videos, Google Photo's backup, YouTube... I go through about 9-18GB each month as a commuter.

Easy.

Just poor customer service in a broken english accent. With Virgin for TV, home phone, broadband and a sim card. They can be a pain in the ass to deal with if anything goes wrong or if you have any questions other than what's my bill

I use 30gb per month and that's only because my limit is 30gb. I'm sure if I have more... I will definitely use more.

If you are hammering yours, then you must be missing the nail. We have just gone on a caravan holiday. I have 4G a month data & thought that would be fine for my needs including streaming some TV series. In less than two days I used nearly 2 gig of data. We only surfed the net. We didn't download anything. Most of the day we are out not using the internet at all. My plans to stream a TV series in the evening have been put on hold.

For me it's tethering while away and streaming. I guess it should be noted Virgin don't have a firm tethering policy. At the moment many assume it's ok as VM don't mention it in the T&Cs. Which seems very odd to not just state your policy.

I know, right?
I have asked their live chat if it’s allowed, they say yes - and I have seen them respond yes to people on Twitter:

34404617-MK1Xi.jpg
But something official on their site would put my mind at ease (I don’t want stuck in a contract for them to then say at some point it’s not allowed).

Also, because they offer an unlimited data plan (for existing customers but some people claim to get it as a new customer), it has me wondering - if they officially allow tethering, is there a limit? No network allows unlimited tethering, are Virgin an exception? ?

Phoned them up and said i want unlimited minutes as it says in the picture, they were like we can't do it.
Not an option, but they gave me a month free.
I got bored by that point anyways haha

Can anyone tell me is the roaming 4G ?

I've just ditched three because of numerous issues (signal.speed etc) but one being they only have 3G roaming and it's bad, really really slow. As I work all over the place and am regularly out of the UK I like to be able to keep in touch etc... it's not really roam at home if you get 3G and your speed is capped down to 2mbit like on three...

so yeah, anyone got virgin mobile and can comment on roaming ? is it fast ? is it 4G ?

Is there a limit on tethering?
I might have to challenge that now, i have the 45GB on it's way. But i have a oneplus, so i have dual sim.
I also have a 25GB EE sim, so 70GB.. Might be about to beat you by a few GB.

I've got 64gb a month and use it all every month. I watch football matches in full HD which takes up around 5gb in one game. When EE used to do their 100gb summer promotions. I used all that up as well. You have paid for your data. Should try and use it all. Make a list of things you want to download and when you have free data in last few days of the month, use the list.

Three have "Go Binge" which includes unlimited Netflix data, and Vodafone have one-off purchases for the month for £7 which is unlimited video across most/all of the video services. If you're in a caravan and presumably a bit more rural, Vodafone is likely the better option and you might be able to attach that video thing to a PAYG sim.
Just in case you're in Central London - I have only 5GB of data on my Virgin sim. I'm paying the £4 a month from a while back. I get get a great 4G signal across the city of London, but mostly lousy speeds of less than 1Mbps where I'm working and all around where I'm working. I have numerous screenshots from Speedtest to show this.

Is anyone else using Virgin 4G in central London and getting decent speeds? At 0.26Mbps which I have right now, I would need to download continuously for about 5 millenia to get anywhere near the 45GB offered here.

Back home, about 7 miles away, I regularly get 42Mbps download speeds - whoop!!, but my Virgin Broadband often crawls!!

I have to say, I tend to go out and do stuff - I wouldn't even come close to using a 10th of your 64gb.
Edited by: "AgentDaleCooper" 18th Jul 2018
I have this sim and tether regularly also great as unused data rolls over so have 60gb this month!!
not sure how, but i signed up for the 20gb package with the mins and texts unlimited for £15 but each month i get a full 20gb data rollover giving me 40gb each month.
Heat from me - thanks
If your using that much data wouldn't VOXI be a better deal?
£20 for 30gb and unlimited social media or get the £10 deal (inc £10 Amazon voucher) and the £7 unlimited video streaming option. Depending on where your using your data.
Just switched :-o

Hi abdi, I'm jealous.

My network is automatically going to Virgin 4G, but I have another network showing as Virgin Mobile 4G(forbidden). Are you on Virgin 4G or Virgin Mobile 4G?

Maybe that's it?

I am on the Virgin 4G Red Sim, if you are on the purple sim Virgin Mobile have full control and they can look into the poor connection from their side, should give them a shout and possibly get a “free” month.
