Free boost from 100mb/s to 150mb/s and 6 months free BT Sport with Virgin Media

Unsure if this is already widely known but I called up Virgin Media earlier today to move the account my direct debit comes out of.

While I was on the phone I was told that I could get a free boost to my broadband speed from 100mb/s to 150mb/s for no change to my contract and no extra charge.

After that the adviser also said I could get BT Sports free for 6 months added on to my package. My package is currently £34.99/month.

Might be worth a call for anyone with Virgin to see if you can get the same?

The number I called was: 0800 064 3836

I'd say it was one of those rare instances you caught a good advisor. Speed increases for free should normally be indicated on your account anyway.

Just be aware that nothing is free with vm they will up your price next time round and when quoting your package will include the faster bb

​Agree. This has happened to me when they hike their prices mid contract.
