Does anybody have any information on what the best package is to be on with Virgin Media?

I need the broadband, tv and phone services.

Im currently paying £100 a month and im sure this is a total rip off. I do have a lot of channels but most of them are not used. I want the best broadband available but am willing to scale back on the tv channels

any info would be much aprpeciated

They do all of there basic services for £30 a month

2mb BB
Phone
and Basic Cable.

I think you should ring up and threaten to cancel (depending on how far into your contract you are).
They will soon reduce it.
I was paying AOL 21.99 a month, when I called to cancel, my service suddenly cost me £9.99. Plus they sent me a new wireless router.

BTW. £100 sounds ridiculous for those services.
I have
Sky £38
AOL £9.99
BT £20

£67.99 TOTAL.

I have Virgin Media and get the below for £16.90 becuase I threatened to cancel:

2MB cable Broadband
Size M TV package
Unlimited Talk phone package to landlines.

I pay £57 for
XL TV + sky sport +sky movies
V+box + extra set top box
XL phone + caller display + international
20MB broadband.

Call retentions and ask them to match the deal sky have offerd you. If you don't get a result call again. When you do get a result ask for name and ext number, as they are not the most reliable company to deal with!!!

the Virginmedia VIP package gives pretty much EVERYTHING for £85 a month, includes all sports and movie packs and 20MB broadband which you cant get anywhere else.
seems a good deal to me for the lot

Phone virgin media retentions and tell them your considering leaving as their too dear.....you'll be amazed at what they offer you.

tv - large

broadband - medium

phone - talk anywhere 200

Its a pirate box that will give you ALL virgin media channels (inc sky) and auto changes keys. Obviously ilegal. However, since Virgin are expected to change encryption methods, these boxes will be useless and youve wasted £100 for 1 or 2 months use.

they will get round it like they always do

Maybe - but I'll expect it will mean another box to buy (like it always is!) Baring in mind they are going to change the encrytion used in March, not really a good gamble!
