    Virgin still offering 2mb broadband?

    I just rang virgin to cancel and they gave me a good deal to match skys but she said I would be getting the 2mb broadband package, I thought they got rid of this last year?

    Are you in a cabled area? Perhaps you are not and need BB via your phone-line, as I do from Sky. If so, they may have rated your connection speed at 2 meg (this is all I can achieve due to the distance from the phone exchange). check the postcode checker for what is available at your addy. ]http//al…d=2

    Great News! Because you're in a fibre optic cable area, you can get all this.

    Up to 50Mb broadband
    Over 165 digital TV channels (including Sky channels)
    Great value home phone packages
    So help yourself to fibre optic broadband, the very best digital TV, and phone services.

    I didn't know they still offered it but it still exists as I'm on it. Its absolute pants - if you download more than 200MB between 0900-2100 you will be throttled to 0.5Mb for 12 hours! Bare this in mind. (Mine is a cabled area but we opted out of the 'free' upgrade to 10Mb which actually cost more)

    Heres more info on the throttling: allyours.virginmedia.com/htm…tml

    When I rang them for something else they said you could upgrade from 2mb to 10mb for nothing, I figured they were phasing it out.
