I think the OP is underplaying this deal stating it's decent as IMO it's an absolute billy bargain! Just look at what you are getting for the money. Almost 20 quid a month cash back over the 12 months contract brings the net monthly cost down to approx 72 a month net including the 35 quid set up fee PLUS the PS4 and PS Plus package which you could probably get 200 quid for which would reduce the net cost to approx 56 quid a month!!

The unlimited data SIM deal alone costs 32 quid!. Bb speed is literally off 5he scale fast. Just about every channel you would possibly need with the exception of Sky Atlantic as well. And 2 v6 boxes to step any arguing lol.

Heat added.

PS would be nice if the inevitable VM deal down voters gave valid reasons for their down votes including cheaper comparable deals but probably isn't going to happen.

This is actually a really good deal and deserves to be a lot hotter



VM deals rarely get much heat, bizarrely. But there's no mistaking, especially with Sky now going with IMO disgraceful 18 months min contracts, Virgin Media are offering easily the best deals out there at the moment. If you are in a Virgin area, of course.I'm sure we will get the usual 'they increase their prices every year' argument )let's face it, what company doesn't?) but to people populating a bargain hunting site like this it should be seen as an opportunity to get a better deal earlier than normal.

PS An interesting fact regarding the unlimited data SIM - it piggybacks off EE and has a speed cap of 70Mbits/sec whereas BT, the company who actually own EE, set the speed cap on their SIMs at 60Mbits/sec (and don't currently offer an unlimited package)!

I'd like to add also that whenever a service provider such as BT and Virgin media, the two most notorious for this, increase their prices, you can leave your contract with them, termination charges free, within 30 days of being notified. HOWEVER. More often than not, if you call up, they will remove said increased charges to retain your custom.

I'd also like to add that Virgin do not get to access the 800mhz spectrum on the EE network so indoor coverage can suffer. Only BT gets to access this spectrum on the EE network.

First time I'm hearing about speed caps as I've seen people get over 100mbs on virgin network mobile. Maybe this is something new.

Given this deal heat but after Virgin tried robbing me of over a £100 in physical cash, I'll never ever go back to them. Not for me but will suit many.

How much extra to add Sky Sports F1 HD to the package?
that's the only sport i watch, im on Virgin Media (basic bb 100mb/phone/tv package) for £35 a month and they want an extra ~£38 a month to add SS F1 HD so obviously ive just streamed it instead...

That is included unless I'm missing something? Channel 506 (not a fan of F1 so may be wrong).

i phoned Virgin a while ago to ask about adding SS F1 HD to my basic tv package,
they said i had to first add Sky Sports to my package for an extra cost, then add the F1 subscription for another cost,
then add HD for a further cost
turns out they wanted £38.75 per month extra... and as the F1 is only broadcast live over 9 months id be paying that £38.75 for 12 months = £465 per year just to watch F1 in HD
thats crazy money, il just carry on streaming it...
Will go up £3 every 3 months. Price will be nearly £102 by year 1.

I'm planning on moving to Virgin broadband when my contract is up, & & have been eyeing this deal as it's great value. You can get another £35 off on their chat if you say you'll consider it & get back to them. I think that's just the £35 up front set up costs deducted but it's better than nothing. Obviously do cash back on Quidco etc as you get loads in these deals.
Does anyone have any experience cancelling broadband contracts? Talk Talk charged me for their TV add on which I didn't sign up for then did the same thing again a few months later, I got credit back but it took the mick. Is that grounds for cancelling or do they have to have upped my set contract bill for me to be able to cancel?

Are you out of contract? If so, just tell them you are cancelling and I'm absolutely certain they will come up with an acceptable deal (saying the word 'cancel' magically gets you transferred from the script readers in Singapore to the UK based retentions team who have the remit to get you to stay and to that end are allowed much greater flexibility with regards to offering deals. If you don't mind me asking, how much are you currently paying them?

Personally think the chance of 230 spondoolics from Quidco is better than the probably guaranteed 35 quid from Virgin but each to their own I guess.

Its probably not grounds for cancelling, it is however grounds for a complaint and further warning about their future conduct going forward.

What this regarding is your existing services staying the same but instead of paying the agreed price you signed up for at the start of your contract, the price has changed from the providers end. Everything is the same, just more expensive. They've changed the terms of your contract with them so you are given the opportunitiy to leave them. If you are happy with their service, then you can call up and I'm 90% confident that they would take away the price increase as you have shown yourself to be an aware customer. If you aren't happy with the service like I have been with Virgin and BT then you can leave penalty free.

Your case sounds to me like one where there has been a billing issue as your package has changed on their records so that is why you have been charged more. Not to give you the run around but you'll need to conduct an investigation with them why this add on is being repeatedly added on to your account. If you pay via your credit card company, then maybe you can reclaim the costs in the future as TalkTalk are acting in bad faith if they have promised you that the add on will not be applied to your account in the future.

Of course if it's a straight choice that's a no brainer. I'm not sure if the two are mutually exclusive though, you can maybe get a code off them or maybe even a link to use that may still be tracked. Worth doing both if possible. I was just enquiring so my deal never progressed that far. As I said in the post you replied to, DEFINITELY do cash back on these broadband deals.

I bow to your superior knowledge here but my info regarding the speed cap came from this review

expertreviews.co.uk/net…iew

Of course, the fastest speeds will be restricted to the major UK cities, but even outside those you shouldn’t get a slow connection. The only thing to note is that, while EE’s fastest 4G+ services reach speeds of 90Mbits/sec, Virgin’s are limited to a slower 70Mbits/sec, which is still ahead of other networks, including BT Mobile’s 60Mbits/sec Extra Speed.

Confused about your general point mate, I can't cancel but I can leave penalty free if I'm not happy with their service?

I signed up for Talk Talk via their chat so I would have everything they were charging me emailed to me, so I'd have a reference, as all these companies overcharge people who don't check their bills (to follow from what you said; unaware customers). I had an offer from their retentions team over the phone which I decided to take up. The agent agreed to give me the deal I'd agreed on the phone but was so slippery trying to give me worse speed than agreed & loads of stuff I didn't want. I went through it with a fine tooth comb & eventually I had a deal I was happy with. Then when my bill rolls around I notice I was paying more than expected & sure enough I was paying for a TV add on which I'd never even discussed (checked the transcript of the sign up convo). I cancelled it saying I'd never agreed to it. Then a few months later it comes back again. They've given me credit back both times so I got the money back. The 2nd time they put a note on my record that I didn't want it that they shoulda had on the 1st time & I don't expect that charge to happen again now, but Im not impressed & will leave them ASAP. The sooner the better so I can get this Oomph deal.

Agreed. 60 or 70 or 90, none of these speeds should be sniffed at. Although compared to the ultimate oomph package BB speed they look slow (just downloaded a 1080 HD film of 2hrs and 5 mins duration off Netflix in 2 min and 24 secs!) And yes I am sad enough to have timed it!

Did you not get a price increase email recently? Reason I ask is I signed up to the old VIP package in Nov 2018 and got an increase email last month, rang up saying it's the straw that broke the camels back and can't justify paying any more than the 89 quid I was already paying. Put straight through to UK retentioNs and offered this package for 84 a month on a new 12 month contract.

Yep. Purely down to coverage for me and priority on the network. In congested areas, particularly applicable to London for example, MNVOs are given less priority for speed etc.

Either way you get what you pay for overall.

Lmao. That is truly obscene. I thought downloading gears of war 4 on pc, over 130gb in around an hour was impressive speed on EE 4G unlimited. Can only imagine the speed on gigabit connections.
Thanks for posting @jaydeeuk1 we have added this to today's Highlights
no virgin media in my area = cold. I joke this is smoking hot and I'm sour
Lads and ladettes, is it still the same old story with Virgin Media to ring them up, talk about what you want but then say you want to cancel - then they ring you back with better deals?

If this is still standard operating procedure for the best deals I need to do this soon. Currently paying close to £70 for:

XL TV
200Mb broadband
Talk Evenings and Weekends phone package
(two tivo boxes, only one is the v6 box though)

What kinda price should I be aiming for? Don't mind changing up my package either.
Very good deal.
TV package, phoneline, SIM, all on top packages.

The only thing that lets them down is their Hub.
Its crap.
If you are sitting in the same room as the hub, it works fine and you get good speeds.
Move to the next room, and it dies completely.
The wifi extenders they send you are rather ugly and useless too.
What a rip off. You never get the advertised broadband speeds either. I been with VM for 2 years on the 200mb and it's never at 200

I have full house bundle and calls and 200mb for £33 a month

So the Mrs has a virgin bb and phone package over 12m old.
Can she cancel it then I sign up for this package?
Thanks in advance
I've been on virgin broadband for a couple of years now so don't think I will qualify, amazing deal though
