VIRGIN MEDIA EXISTING CUSTOMERS ONLY

Virgin media recently announced price rise of £3.49 on the 1st of November.

This means anyone who is a existing customer can cancel there services with no cancelation fees.

This means anyone who is looking to upgrade there services for example add sky sports or sky movies, up there broadband etc etc. THIS IS THE TIME TO CALL 150 AND GET HAGGLING.

I phoned up today as i was paying £69 a month for 100mb broadband and XL TV and just weekend telephones. After threats of leaving to sky I managed to get a £50 bill credit plus Skysports and broadband speed upd to 200mb for £71.50 a month. You do the maths!

So to put simple take advantage of the free cancellation of services. Even if you are just looking to just leave virgin now is the time.

You can cancel your services all the way up to 31st of October. FREE OF CHARGE

Sorry if this is not a deal, more of a heads up on how to stick the knife into virgin media. Sorry for any typos as well.

​Great! So your not looking for any big discounted upgrades? Just to get bill reduced?
Edited by: "dalecool92" 18th Sep 2016

I checked and apparently I'm on a discounted deal from July that I negotiated so the price increase won't affect me.
The one time I want the price increase too !

Tempted to do this. Been with them for 10 years but the price increases for what I get just aren't worth it. I don't really want to go to Sky or BT but seeing some of the deals around I am tempted to try my luck.

Currently playing £58 a month for:
100mb Broadband
M+ TV and
M Phone.

​It's worth a try, you could save a couple of quid.

Having only signed a new contract 4 weeks ago, and then since that we saw a nice 5 bedroom property that we wish to move to, only to discover that Virgin don't cover out to there... the price rise announcement was a blessing.

Cancellation without penalty. Ta.

I pay £52.57 for 152MB and M phone and just got the increase on friday. I think i am going to threaten to leave as i think the increases are getting ridicoulous. If they dont reduce so be it i will leave and find someone else.

​Do It! But just to let you know you would be on 200mb broadband as virgin rolled out just 2 speeds 100mb and 200mb. Your not gonna find them speeds anywhere else.

I pay 45/month for xl TV, 100mb broadband and landline, have been doing so for ages. Everytime they send a letter for price increase I call them, tell them I'm leaving due to increase, they say they can't do it any cheaper so I give them notice. 3 days later I get a call and they drop the price again.

I will give them a ring tomorrow. I also just checked and it says i can order 200MB, is it a free upgrade or is there an extra price. I just dont want to hit the order now tab as a mate did that and it just went through without warning or chance to change his mind

I cancelled my 70Mbit/weekend calls and took the BT/Quidco deal last week as I was 11 months into an 18 month contract, and my package would have gone from the promo rate of £22.50pm to almost £40 on month 13. Had a call on Friday from VM who offered to reduce my package to £15pm and no increases for 12m, I told them the BT deal worked out at less after cashback and they offered to reduce it to £14pm. I said I'd think about it, and they said if I agreed there and then, they'd do my package at £12pm

What are Sky offering new customers? I've just been on their site and I get nothing for around 65 quid...

​Check your emails. Yes call 150 I think get to the menu and the press 5.

I need to get onto them. it's the one jib I keep avoiding as I'm not good at haggling. knowing my luck they'll probably pay me to leave!

So you rang up to complain about prices, but ended up paying more?

​It's not really haggling it just the case of saying "I want to leave virgin due to price increase" they can do you offer for better stuff or even wipe the price increase.

£46 per month for me

That's what I thought! Great! I wouldn't hesitate staying with them but when people are getting the same as me at £20/30 a month less I deserve to be matched

I also rang last Friday to cancel all my services because of the price rise. Was also offered the £50 credit and the £71.50 offer of 200 broadband, Xl TV, weekend phone and sky sports. Not bad I thought until I asked how long the contract was. 12 months was the reply. So thats £71.50 for 12 months with this deal then I asked. Well er no was the reply. So what is the deal I further asked. Reply was £71.50 for the first 6 months and then £106 for the remaining 6 months. So beware of the promised deal and yes do the maths as advised in the original post. I'm now off elsewhere.

​That's how it will always be, new customer always have a advantage. But now you can haggle or just cancel and take advantage of a new customer deal else where. Like I say in my description I got what I've wanted for the price I needed.

​Have fun with your copper line. Or even your 30mb fiber with £60 activation fee. It's cool if your single man doing the usual oh may I say the call out charges for when the box breaks. Oh and maybe when there's heavy downpour and your sky q and multi room is useless.
