New customers only


I never understood quite how new customer money was more valuable existing customer money. Surely when set-up admin, acquisition costs and other onboarding costs are taken into account, it should be much cheaper to keep a customer than to acquire a new one.
Then out of contract will almost double I bet, when I first signed to virgin I paid £22 about 5 years back now its £45 and I'm still on same speed. It slowly creeps up 3 quid every 6 months and before you know it its doubled.
I cancelled, got my disconnection date then kept getting phonecalls from the retentions dept, managed to finally get 350mb broadband + line rental for £35 per month

Is £27 pcm all inclusive? What about line rental?

Cheers for that, it's on my to do list for next month then . Currently paying £30, but the price is due to rocket any day now
Good price for new customers.

But existing customers should be on a better deal than this.

I pay £25 a month for 350mb, and expect those who cancelled end of contract should be on something similar

Also be aware I was on 200mb and at night between 5pm to 11pm my speeds dipped to 500kb. I have a video on my Facebook I shown on a few sites trying to stream a YouTube clip. Good news we moved a street away to a new house and getting about 220mb 24/7.

You'll find the same thing across all providers, we still need broadband.

These were typical speeds at my old address that cost me £35 a month.
Heat added - recent deal was same price for lower speeds on Sky. I moved with Sky to current address and continued to have speed problems and dropouts streaming TV and online games, now with Virgin at 108 for same price and haven't had a single problem since, the router is also much more powerful to pick up WiFi at a distance.

You could threaten to leave and see what they come up with I guess. Sad that you have to. Fairly sure they won't allow it if same surname?

Agreed, those of us who are loyal find it incredibly hard to get a good deal. I’m leaving them in a couple of weeks as new customers pay half of my deal cost & virgin won’t negotiate.😡

When we were at the old address is was virgin or nothing , too far down the line for the likes of BT or talkTalk etc , we did run a THREE USB dongle at one bit but they changed the rules on hotspots.

I don't think your situation was to do with Virgin, rather your line/location. Which is why no one else offered broadband at the time.

For the majority of people you will get the advertised speeds if not higher.

Don't do Facebook, so no idea what that's supposed to be.


Trying to view a YouTube video with the blistering speeds of 0.5 of a MB on a £35.25 super fast as advertised by Mr Bolt and virgin. I did ring up daily and it was “outage” and “ it’s up to 200mb” was the reply’s. I do believe there’s something now in law about the “up to” speeds as it needs to be a minimum percentage of.

I don't either.

I used to have basic tv package and internet and phone for about £33pm.

Saw an offer for the next package up for when my contract was up which included bt and a few more channels for £55pm. Asked to be upgraded to that and was told for me it'd be £65pm.

I already had the box and everything so it was literally zero cost in equipment and manning to upgrade me.

Ended up leaving.

I’m middle of sheffield not like on the moon . The green box the engineers work from was in touching distance from my front wall. All the phone lines could offer was max 3mb however someone had cut the line from house to pole when scaffolding was put up for the new roof.

Now we are a street away I now get exactly what we pay for speed wise. The only downside is the crappy superhub 2 as signal is shocking. I’ve had to piggyback Apple airport to it and now the whole house is covered not just a room.
Good deal for the price. However if you have smart devices ( Ring doorbell , smart IP cams etc ) in your house which upload pics videos, this may not be for you due to poor upload speeds
36649905-yAo9e.jpgOnly reason I've stuck to virgin is the download speeds. That test was via a WiFi connection too. No other company in my area can come anywhere close to that

You really aren't playing the game! Simply cancel. Then watch the offers roll in.

New-ish Virgin Media customer (on 300mbps package) and like most other isps their router is utter garbage at throwing out wifi. Ended up getting a BT mesh system and now incredible speeds all over (including 115-120mbps consistently at the end of our long-ish garden!).

Yeah I found equipment not up to par WiFi wise. I grabbed a couple of used from America ( as they were silly cheap £55 delivered ) 2tb airport extremes , put one on virgin modem and other on Mac mini and now we all get 200mb no matter what lol.
Tempted, just moved home. But do they still heavily traffic shape? Like 1gb downloaded between 6-8pm and they essentially cut you off?

Seems pointless their upto none sense when in some cases they can't even deliver it, and others god forbid you use up your measly allowance in 3.4 seconds at 200mb!
