I thought their broadband speed was less reliable than Sky - my internet speeds go down a lot at night and at times around mid afternoon. Never had this problem with Sky. The offers are for new customers only, retention deals so far haven't been good so think will have to wait a little longer. Anyone knows whether I can be classified as new customer at Sky, given I left 11 months ago, if I tell them to connect the line in one month?


Opposite for me , Sky were awful for me whereas BT was much better.

infowars, isn't that Alex Jones, the one that sells miracle water.
Newly unearthed patents reveal how Google plans to spy on children and families in the home and then issue verbal instructions on how they can improve their behaviour.

infowars.com/goo…ce/

I just got an Alexa. I didn't buy it it was gifted. I like it but I'm paranoid of it! It's picked up things that's been said without me even saying the Alexa word & answered & well can't repeat on here, scary sh*t! So it's total BS saying they only listen when you use the word. They're listening 24/7!! Big Brother is watching!! It's like the Matrix/Minority report movies turned real!

I’ve got better things to do with my time.

I have sent a letter via recorded delivered saying I have requested the bag several times and if they attempt to charge me I will refer them to the regulator. The last time some clowns attempted something similar (Homechoice way back in 2005) I eventually got 300 quid out of the ombudsman for the amount of my time they had wasted.

I’d suggest anybody in the same situation deals with them the same way. Or better still avoid in the first place!

I think you're missing the point.

You have an incredible deal, just like I have an incredible deal for my Plusnet fibre broadband.

Would I recommend Plusnet to you? No, because you won't anywhere near that deal, as I'm getting it stupid cheap (won't say how much as this isn't a bragging thead).

Stop comparing your deal and compare deals that we can all get, because you are essentially saying go with EE at this price in the hope they will offer you a great deal in the future - surely you can see that's terrible advice.

The device is £5.99, the contract is £20 therefore it's minimum of £25.99 to get the 15gb of data.
Likely to find that they will not sell it for £5.99 & £21 is not a deal.

Monthly rolling contract that you can cancel, either with 30 days notice, or within the first 14 days with a refund of any charges already taken, less any time used.

Anyone considering Vodafone should be aware they appear to have very aggressive traffic shaping in use to try and negate oversubscribed exchanges.
I signed upto the 76mb package, never synced above 52mb despite my line being capable of 80mb.
However from 5pm until midnight speeds are strangled.
Most evenings I was lucky to get above 3mb according to various speed tests.
Netflix was completely unusable.

I've now moved to bt with much improved speeds.
I was close to taking this deal from Vodafone. It put me off that if i move home during the minimum period, the contract length will be reset to 0. I contacted Sky to match this offer and I was offered £18/month for 12 months and £28 for the following 6. It's £24 extra over 18 months, but i think it's worthy.

While I don’t do much gaming. Pings are around 7 and no drops in speed at anytime. Setting Port Mapping and DMZs are possible.
Cancelled two days ago & not a word from Vodafone.
My service went live on 10th but I'm seriously considering baling out. It seems that the promised static IP address is only available to business accounts, contrary to what the sign-up process says. I've had around 10 calls to them trying to get to the bottom of it & every time you call you get a different answer. Yesterday I was promised a call back from someone technical & needless to say, it never materialised.

Added to the lies & misinformation I was fed when trying to get logon credentials for my own router, I have grave reservations over what would happen should a fault occur. I'm also a little disappointed with speeds as they've dropped from 38mbps on day one to 32mbps now.

If I jump back to BT I should end up paying around the same £20pm once all the cashback & rewards are taken into account. Current offer is £29.99 pm for 18 months, £85 Top Cashback & £80 reward card. But then BT are are a useless bunch of unmentionables also...

You are getting confused between megabits per second and mega bytes per second. 200 megabits per second (mb/s) download speed will only transfer max 25 mega bytes per second (MB/s). There are 8 bits in a byte. PS4 I believe shows MB/s so you are actually getting a very good speed!! If you are getting 35mb/s on speed test website then you should complaint to virgin, but it sounds like you are getting above 200 mb/s.

Alarm_MuhammadYour broadband speed could be down to YOUR network (Faulty …Alarm_MuhammadYour broadband speed could be down to YOUR network (Faulty lead, Home plug plugged into a surge bar,) as typically now Virgin give you more than your speed to balance the VIRGIN WIFI usage from other customers using your Hub as a Wifi spot. I would plug a lead directly into your hub and do a speed test ( http://www.speedtest.net/) and see what it says. If the speed isn't at your Hub then could have a Fault with Hub or Line into your property. Remember Wifi speeds are only going to be as fast as both ends hardware will allow. Hope this helps.



Im only on 20mb but im always messign with my setup - ive got three routers in my house and a threat management gateway so im always trying to find the weakest link

sometimes its just a case of "its a netgear" and you buy something new and pow!

How fast was your internet in the 80's ? good effort


"back to the 80's" is a metaphor. It's a figure of speech, if you seriously didn't understand....

I used to live in another country in Europe. 10 years ago a 1Gbps fiber-optic internet was standard stuff in most of the households. For £5-10/month. Without any stupid line rentals.

Communication infrastructure is quite messed up here in UK. But that's not a surprise with 50 utility poles sticking out in every street and water pipes attached to outside walls

You don't need to buy out your contract they will let you leave without …You don't need to buy out your contract they will let you leave without penalty if you have speed or other issues. Just open a complaint and then demand to leave.


If you raise a complaint, they have 30 days to sort out your issues, otherwise you can leave for free.
Be warned though, document all phone calls, times, who you spoke to etc, try to get everything in writing, although this for me proved impossible, and be prepared to get demands for the remainder of the contract for months after you leave. I spent hours and hours on the phone to these crooks after I was allowed to leave. They are truly the worst company I've ever dealt with by some margin.
I have had this since October. I pay £29 a month for broadband + youview TV box. Regular download speed is about 250M but more if I use an ethernet cable. Sky broadband is woeful around here and virgin cable was £30pm for 50M fastest speed if you were lucky.

Bought out at least once? Where did you get that from?

To be be factually correct they split from Carphone Warehouse about 5-6 years to become an independent telco company. Still ultimately owned by the same majority shareholder though.

Lets be frank and honest, they’re not the best ISP but certainly not the worst. Customer service has consistently improved over the last 3 years (other big ISPs perform worse in reputable surveys) and their network is a lot more stable. Less customer churn each year as well i believe. If you wanted the best then go to Zen Internet who have a limited footprint and charge more.

Or - why don’t you just say you’ve had a bad experience which has left a bad taste so you want to stick the knife in!

Lol.. Chated online saying WiFi not good, and requested that they gave me the whole WiFi home. She said OK but gave me the cheap one. At the time, I repeated that you sure it's the home disc one and she kept saying yes, lol. Of course it was not the case. Then chatted again, pointed out that I was advised that the disc ones will be sent and to cut a long story, they sent me a twin pack :-)

Yeah, £40 should be on its way, the chat guy did something and then I submitted the form. I think it's a long wait for the boot card.
