And rubbish bb speeds
And them leaking your data

For £30 p/m I can't really grumble. TBF, if it was £50, I'd still have it.

Then his iphone couldn't join the wifi (fail) so he had to borrow my laptop. Anyway virgin's system isn't giving us the activation page, he thought it was due to been early, but it's still not doing it now. So atm we have phone and tv but no internet. Routers getting signal though so we just have to wait.
