This is a USWITCH offer and easily bettered - - £7 PM (£84 per year) CHEAPER!!

If you go via TCB instead of via USWITCH (clear your cookies first) it's £32pm plus £25 installation=384
minus £50 account credit=334.
Minus TCB 120=214 (TCB allegedly expires 17/3/19)
214 divided by 12 = £17.83pm

Rubbish customer service you will stay on the line for hours to be answered and sometimes they will just cut off without answering after being on hold for ages.

Out of service for nearly 3 weeks. Not sorted yet and they really do hung up after few chat and hold. Rubbish Cs. Very unhappy customer here.

S##t company raised my mobile bill 33% months into a 12 month contract and tried to tell me I had to pay £90 to leave early! Rude, ignorant custumer service people.

glad to know that this is a broadband deal then - and provided from their cable lines.. granted they do have annual price rises.

Bit harsh, every customer has their own experience - care to share yours?

i had one, i contacted customer services - very frustrated and used their online support forums, eventually got it sorted.

its not like i could get 350mb broadband anywhere else with a 20mb upload - ended up getting credited a shed load as i persisited and the problem i had with things wasnt my own.

That's happened to me on three occasions quite a few years ago. They appear to have stopped this practice.

I pay 28pm for 200mb just give your 30 days notice and outbound retentions will call you at some point and give you a better deal
Customer service really bad have this deal.

This was in addition to annual rises. Obviously the rate of inflation isn't 33%. They said the tariff I was on was promotional. Yeah, I signed up to it during a promotion but that doesn't mean the price we agreed on should only last a few months unless it was a monthly contract but it was 12 months.
Not sure what you mean about broadband; I'm talking about the company not the product here - clearly the danger is you sign up and transfer on then they hike their prices with no warning and you're left dealing with customer support muppets and having to spend more time finding an alternative provider.

I kind of see your point - I used to work for a few mobile networks (in store) and usually what your contract says and what you agree to is solid until they change their prices - so in virgins case - when they have a price rise or if your contracted price is up you should have the ability of some sort of get out or ring up and a little bit of haggling - Obv they aren’t gonna give you everything for nothing - as I’ve experienced myself - but ultimately and if you get through to the right individual who can grasp real life - you
Would get a satisfactory outcome - personally I know that for what I wanted (tech wise) I know no one else can do it - so I guess I’m in a different position to you - I’m on three sim only for my mobile contract on an all you can eat everything tariff at £20/month but my broadband is vivid 350mb at haggled 45 a month with tv package and a phone line with virgin - even though I only use the broadband from it

I’m sure everyone has their different experiences of customer services. I left Sky because they were absolutely shocking (and after I left I had a letter threatening legal action over £a trifling amount that Sky acknowledged they’d not even sent me a bill for).

All I’m saying is that they’re universally bad in my experience.

Most ridiculous use of the word vile anyone has ever used. most of these companies have very poor service and sadly you can’t trust trust pilot as it’s totaly one sided.

You just have have to look at every hotdealers favourite John Lewis to see its mainly used by people with issues.

Personally had mixed service from these media great mobile shocking.

They are all crap companies in one way or another. Just pick a bad one out of all the bad ones. If you don't you'll never have broadband, calls or TV.
Lot of hate for vm here! I've definitely had vm screw up bills / overcharge, but have always had it fixed with pretty quick phone calls. Plus I get over 360mbit for a touch over £30 a month, I'm absolutely OK with that. What company out there gives you higher speed than advertised?! I don't want the up to 76 mbit speeds which in reality are 50...

They rise their prices twice a year not once, unhappy customer.
Thanks very much OP, you've just saved me £100+. I'd literally signed up for the same thing through Virgin yesterday without knowing about this offer, so phoned them up and got the offer applied. Have previously had good service with Plusnet, but it's taken them and openreach 3 weeks so far and still no line set up, so cancelled them and went for Virgin instead as there's cable there already. Much appreciated

And every time they do, I believe you get the chance to leave them?! If you complain within a certain timescale
Do you work for them glancy?

Iv`e had terrible service from customer relations recently along with price hikes that are designed to ignore the regulators....have voted with my feet on all the contracts I had with them

For me; the way they deal with you when you have a problem says more than anything else. Sure they pick upthe phone lightning fast for new customers, but Virgin really suck once you are with them.

They normally come back to you in a few days though some do say they don’t get calls. You need to make sure your marketing preferences allow them to call you most people had theirs moved to not allow to contact with gdpr. You can update online in my account.

Contract is 18 months but you can leave without panelty if they raise prices which they will

Can you get cashback on top? I know cashback is risky as it might not pay out but I’ll take my chances as in 10yrs I’ve had all the big cashback paid out

I handed my notice in and then they called back twice after that but each time offering higher price than what i was currently paying. Obviously i declined and no calls since. Looks like them offering a good deal is a bit hit and miss. They seem happy to let customers go these days as they can make up for it by new customer promo deals

I dont work for them - i know reading back my posts it actually sounds like i do - but i just hate when people slate a company based on their own individual experience because their may have been a genuine issue - not on the experience of the masses.. You notice how people only pipe up when they wanna rant about problems with the companies and not praise them with the good service - im happy with what they offered me after a frustrating few days of issues - Id recommend virgin media over all of them - based on the connection speed and the tech that goes behind it.

I just think that people give them an unnecessary bad rep because some people are genuinely idiots.

Find me another provider that will actually get you 100Mb Speed - not claim to get you near and real life get nowhere near!!!
No customer should have to call their provider and give notice to leave just to get a better deal!!

VM pricing policy is outdated, bordering on corrupt and I hope that everyone pays them as little as they possible can and only for the services they use.

Said before, VM are a piss poor outfit even in this market of scallywags - wish there was a viable alternative!
Sadly virgin lets new customers pay little, whilst its loyal customers are screwed, shouldn't have to phone rententions to get a good deal
Anyone found a good deal for the 350MB broadband?

Would agree and disagree. Virgin has been a nightmare but had bigger issues with BT who left me with no landline or internet for over 2 weeks as their engineer didn’t turn up 3 times. So many calls etc n had to go back to virgin. Virgin poor WiFi n downtime of service is legendary. Sky prices are high but they speed consistency n no sudden disconnection/reconnection like Virgin is a god send.
