You forgot the £100k+ to move to a cabled area!
Add code VMBRVOU50 for £50 credit. I'm thinking of leaving PlusNet for this but wouldn't want to have to pay BT a new line activation fee if i was to go back to them in 12 months time when this offer expires

Same thing about every provider to be fair. Don't think there's a perfect one out there.
My father in law and son both have it and complain of disconnections and slow speeds.....
I was talking with ee on Friday about a phone upgrade. They could offer unlimited Internet using their newly acquired BT network and line rental for £18/mth. There were some free weekend calls but can't remember. He said that he would give me 10gb 4g data for my mobile for free. Might be worth giving them a call if you are an ee customer

Their service is excellent but the prices have crept up slowly and am now paying £25.50 where i was originally paying £17.50.
Tried to haggle a bit but they weren't interested so i gave my 30 days notice.

Virgin has been excellent for me, there you go, I've had about 4 outages, none lasting that long, since I first got cable broadband, and that was a very very long time ago.

The superhub2 is nothing special, but generally works as well as any other I've had.

i usually go back and forth between providers joining as a new customer always appears to be better.
save more with line rental savor option.
this guy needs a medal - best find ever - went in to store today offered me same thing but for six months - got the deal for 12 months on a 12 months contract - loving it

haters leave it alone
got this deal few months ago, I moved from sky they increased line rental and didn't bother to offer me a better deal.
There's also a £9.99 activation fee that needs to be factored/stated in post.

How do you pay for the line rental upfront?
Can you do it online or do you have to call them?

same here, going to cancel next month and see what they say. i did try to get a discount via online-chat and even though i'm out of contract i'm not eligible for any discount
With sky at the moment and need to cancel as price has increased and are not budging. I had unlimited broadband and anytime calls, Virgin charge an additional £8
possible £63 casback if you go via TCB first...

Doubt it..but worth a try.

I was thinking of getting a decent mobile internet deal with tethering and cancelling home broadband altogether.
Pointless paying for both.. I only do browsing nowadays. (No movies etc)
then once any deals are finished the prices go sky high. ive just left them as they so expensive and they didn't offer me Amy deals to stay
Does anyone know if this includes the new super hub 3? Or will they just send out the old 2

​All new customers get the super hub 3 as standard
Was a long time customer with them and asked about this deal when it was originally posted in January. Was told they could match some of it but they would not match the £50 credit that was being offered for new customers so I gave my notice. They didnt bother at all during the notice period to contact me.

However I signed up after giving notice in the other half's name- same surname. I took the deal and they applied the £50 credit to that account. I have been connected for a month now and am paying £5 for the broadband as I paid the line saver , but as a bit of warning did it after i had been connected a few days. So there is a slight mismatch in the contract dates. However after factoring in the credit it worked out as £16.17 per month for phone and line rental compared to £28.50 which they were charging for simple boradband under my contract.

Yes it is the new superhub 3- nothing spectactularly different about this compared to the old superhub 2 in my opinion.

Cheers, I was under the impression online orders still et the hub 2 as they don't picture the new one.
I would be happy with virgin media if it was fast 24/7!! I know all areas are different but mines only fast during the day / early hours, anything after 6 on a evening and weekends you really notice the drop.
i have virgin fibre optic 50mbps and most of the time i get that speed.
It used to suffer from slowdown but that was due to the hub being in a corner behind the sofa. Keep it in an open enough area and you shouldn't suffer slowdown. I did get angry even they increased the monthly price by £1.50 just 4 months into my contract! A quick call sorted that out!
Sorry but very cold from me ,no to anything from these.
Looks like a good deal, shame the upload speed is so slow @3Mbps with traffic management reducing that by up to 65%

For most people this is a pretty sweet deal
Question please guys: I am with Sky deal that expires in JULY.....it was a deal from MSE that gave bill credit / free broadband; effectively meaning it is very cheap each month.....

Can I take up this Virgin deal, and have it alongside the 'free' sky deal until July.....or is my BT / sky telephone line taken over by Virgin as the new provider?

Thanks in advance, and sorry for random question!

​Virgin don't use the BT line so you can have this running alongside Sky. Just make sure to ask for a new telephone number rather than moving your Sky one.

Virgin are dodgy though man; they're that bad that I record all of my telephone calls with them, especially after I caught them on recording telling me that they would give me a better price if I didn't leave with no additional contract. I was out of contract at the time.

I knew I was recording so i made sure I asked them like 10 times (multiple different people within the department) on recording if they were sure that they were not going to try and tie me in to another contract to give me a better price.

They swore I had nothing to worry about and that they were simply reducing the price as I was a long standing customer that had never missed a bill. A few months later I decided f**kit im leaving anyway as they kept doing work on the network in my neighbourhood, so I phoned them up and told them to come and get their kit as I'm leaving.

They were like but you're in contract sir, so you will have to settle that first. They were like you took out a new contract not so long ago and I was like BS, they were like theirs nothing on our system about any special discount or price reduction.

Anyway, I obviously escalated it up the ladder, forwarded over the recording, got an apology and ended up with a better price. I hate to think of how many people have had one over on them thanks to their scamming deceitful sales team.

Just think of all those people who thought they were managing their contracts and bills correctly only to have some scheming little sales team bas***d mess them up, get them in bad credit, get them black listed and what not.

I personally hate Virgin, I only use them as they're one of the better of all evils in my neighbourhood.

Yes you can but why would you want to pay for two lots of broadband at the same time? This deal is reposted every couple of months. So I'd either wait until the summer before taking it out. Or if you do insist on ordering today I'd ring Virgin and get installation pushed back (you'd probably have to ring two or three times to get it pushed back as far as July though).
