Had Virgin for the past 3 or so years. Yes, there have been the odd times where it hasn't worked but their customer service has actually been quite good, even the Indian call centre. I'm currently paying £26 for the 350mb broadband only service. Yes, there are loads of bad reviews but I find that most of the time people post a review when they aren't happy not when they they are. I'm quite happy with Virgin and they're currently the only isp which can do speeds greater than 76mb.
These posts are great but unless people are going to give their account name out so virgin will match it then these posts aren’t much help as its dependent on your bartering skills or willingness to cancel to potentially force a phone call to entice you to not cancel. Heat for the effort though

Good to know as my deal comes up for renewal next month
Also, could you bring down the cost, (household budget permitting), if you paid 12 months line rental upfront.
Dnt tale it even if its free.. Read Reviews before u decide to pull ur hair out . uk.trustpilot.com/rev…com
I got full house and 350mb for £56 as i threatend to leave. Best deal i think.

I pay 45/month, full TV (without movies), 200mb + BT sports.
The trick is on that first call when you threaten to leave, they'll make you an offer at a lower price, be polite tell them its not enough and they'll end the call.
A few days later you'll get another call from them with a better offer.
It sounds good. I got the same deal on retention, when my £39 two year deal run out this month, without sky cinema for £40.00
The same package is double of that, i think.

Was that a retention deal? Pretty good if that includes a phone line.
I got same deal excluding the movies for £45pm and £50 credit
need to do this, but first i've got to dig out the house phone and plug it in. it's the only time it's ever used, to call them for free.
03454541111 should be included with mobile minutes
I had the £39 fixed price deal for 2 years, ended on 24th Dec. Now pay £45 for the same package, after them initially saying I was going to have to pay £89. Didn't have to threaten to leave, guy on phone just went away for 2 mins then came back offering the same for £45

Why would anyone want to/need to give their account information? This gives an indication of what Retentions are currently able to offer with that package and I have personally always found it helpful to know what is currently available (potentially yes - but there is a pattern to what is offered, bar a few outliers now and again). You have to be willing to cancel and wait for outbound to call to get these types of offers and to negotiate/walk away and wait another call - rarely has anyone reported getting an excellent deal just for calling in (though I see the post above has managed it - £45 per month plus cashback may have been possible by cancelling).

I don’t think this includes sky movies or bt sport or the ultra hd channel which is included in full house!
Edited by: "Ts1899" 8th Jan
I do that every year and they keep bringing my bill down each time I say I want to leave. Currently at 200mb/s speed and paying £30 broadband only
Careful I signed a 12 month contract for £59.50, then on contract at bottom states from July increase to £63 50 I was told it was £59.50 for 12 month's unless a price increase so look at your contract.

I phoned and got credit back for the increase in advance of £24
350mb+full house+phone=£45pm. Almost the best?
I have no idea how you guys do it. 2 years ago was paying 25 per month and now its 61ish for 50meg/Mix tv/eve + weekend. Phoned them up and said could not lower it unless i went to player.

Just gave notice but have no marketing call setup so they cant call. it takes upto 27 days to turn it back on.

Maybe, I am not sure about this, however, that's a better broadband and get some streaming services instead. Anyone can choose what's better, there are years since I stream everything instead of a TV subscription.

VIP is £79 with 350 meg, full house, sky movies, sly sports, line rental and talk anytime, 2 X v6 boxes.

So I doubt your getting 350meg BB, full house, TiVo box or V6 box, line rental and whatever phone package for £45 pm

You have to actually cancel contract and tell them your leaving,A year ago i had 200mb fun tv evening and weekend calls caller id for £32-50p.I moved house in may and it went up to £36-86 but only because i couldn't be bothered arguing at the time.It ends in may and i will be on the phone to cancel again.In the past iv'e had the price rise letter saying its going up £3 and cancelled the lot,Finished up paying £2 less than i was already paying.
