Just called Virgin Media to check how much it would cost to upgrade from my 10mb to 20mb connection, the answer I got was that I would get an £8 reduction on my monthly bill. I currently have a XL pack for TV with M Phone Line and V+.
They're also giving me a free wireless router and upgrading my dated NTL modem.
Lucky I called them !
Really just a heads up for existing customers to get an upgrade and save some money too. How else would they find out !?

Cost for XL broadband, xl tv and m phone is currently £52.50, so don't really think this is a great deal unless your phone is higher than m

that's the correct price, mine was 61.50 with 10mb a month, the upgrade to 20mb saved me £8.
Just trying to get it across as i doubt VM will notify of the potential saving.

Currently have L broadband and XL phone and TV, paying around £49. Are you saying they will drop that to £40ish if we get XL Broadband? Or just a free upgrade? Last time I tried I was told it was an extra £10-15 or so to upgrade to XL and they wouldn't budge

good deal i think[/COLOR]

that is a good deal, the point i'm trying to make on my post though is really specific to my package i suppose, doesn't look like it's getting across though.. :?

I'm on this :-

2 x V + HD Boxes

M Phone (weekend calls FREE)

L BB (upto 10mb)

XL TV


Total cost = £43.00 per month (Including the £11 p/month Line Rental)

(setup fees were £79 one-off total for the 2 V+ boxes installed on the same day, (1st V+ box was £49, 2nd one was an additional £30)


I have been with Virgin Media since they took over from NTL and have never ever been contacted about drops in pricing - they will ALWAYS keep you on the same deal even if their pricing structure changes , just keep checking on their site to see if the package your on is cheaper than what your paying and if it is - get on the phone to enquire about leaving (free call - 150 from virgin landline) as you are being charged more than everyone else and that you are not enjoying any kind of loyalty bonus whatsoever ..... they will cut your bill at least in line with their current pricing.

Its been that way for as long as I can remember so although the OP may not have outlined a particularly good deal as such , it is useful to know that the pricing structure do vary and its YOU that needs to contact them if you want it cheaper as they will not contact you , they'll keep you on the same inflated price for ever otherwise !!

not really, to get the 20mb bb you have to pay more, all V+ are HD btw

the point is that 10mb total price was £61 , upgrading the same pack config that i have saves 8 pound

Wends original comment was L BB not XL, but the point about calling them to warn you're going to defect to Sky is a good one ....

It's pretty clear, people weren't getting the point of the post... (present company excluded of course) i've put it to bed ... that'll keep Mr Branson happy...

Hes just trying to get the point over if your on an old package price it might have come down in price since you last called them. So by checking and calling them you will be dropped to the current price they sell it at now.
