Virgin Media - Upgrade to 50Mb broadband with free installation worth £40 [EXISTING CUSTOMERS ONLY)

Virgin Media are currently advertising that they can give you BB on its own for existing customers 50MB service for only £35 a month:

Upgrade to 50Mb broadband with free installation worth £40

Boost your broadband speed to Broadband XXL, and we'll cover your installation.

You'd normally need to pay a £40 installation charge, and a £20 activation fee for Broadband XXL, but we'll cover the installation charge for you

You'll get all this:

* Up to 50Mb speed
* Unlimited downloads1
* Virgin Media Super Hub wireless router
and USB adaptor
* Unlimited online backup & storage
* 100 free photo prints every month

I rang retentions as I had a fault with my bb and asked how much they could offer me the 50mb service. They said it normally is about £48 a month but they could do it at a discount for £35 on a 12 month contract with a free connection and super hub.

I asked her that since I have been with them for a long time what they could offer but she said since I only have BB on its own this is the cheapest they can do. I'm not sure if its a great price. I know BT infinity is £17.99 which is UP to 40MB/s

I thought I'd post this incase people who just have virgin media BB on its own may find it usefull.

My First post so be nice .... I think its an ok deal as I only pay for the BB and my parents pay for the line..

I currently pay £18 for 10mb speed.

If you was an existing customer surely you wouldnt have to pay to upgrade, the instalation fee would be free, wouldnt it? (_;)

think you have to have a new broadband modem for it. hence "installation"

installation fee is a con, as for the activation fee...joke

i mean plug in connect up - £60 no thanks not for 2 mins work

50MB by itself is £35 standard and 100MB is £45.

The only deal here is free installation.

If you parents have a virgin phone line then it would be cheaper to combine the order with them, they would pay the usual telephone line rental and you would only pay £25 a month for 50MB.

What do you mean, 'new' broadband modem? I am learning slowly.

I agree, an absolute rip off. Coooooooooooooold as ice!

I have been a virgin customer for years and the connection has been very reliable. Just upgraded to the 50mb service and the only bad thing I found was that while I get a 50mb dl hardwired to the modem, wirless through the supplied router I can only achieve 25mb.

and a new 12 month contract
even for exsiting custermers

I'm not really getting the point of these super fast connections. Most websites you download from don't seem to support those speeds so you're paying for a gimmick. My connection through ADSL is around the 5m mark and is ample for online gaming at a fraction of the cost.

Talking of Virgin BB im on a 20mb connection was going to upgrade to 50mb then all of a sudden after like 2 years without a hitch my connection only lets me access 1 thing at once eg, downloading something and then open a browser for the internet keeps coming up with error gateway or server not found, or browsing the net on my main PC and someone using xbox live only 1 of them will work, called for an engineer he didn't seem to know what was the problem as all of the feedback from the tests he done were spot on. couild do with upgrading if this problem gets sorted out though.

I am asking this question as a person that just knows the basics...........'We are given different internet speeds with our supplier and as time goes on the speeds get more efficiant and faster etc, as the norm (my understanding) So why pay for the extra speeds when ultimately we will all get these speeds as standard as the product becomes more mainstream etc'

I get what i want with what i have on my VM package, do i really need to pay silly money to keep up with the jones 'es?
