Virgin media
« on: August 01, 2011, 02:58:14 PM »
Hi,
I was woundering weither anyone else had been having trouble with there virgin broadband/phone/TV recently?
My broadband seems to be going up and down more than a rollercoaster on overdrive!
I was also woundering weither anyone could recommend a different broadband, TV and phone company (preferably all in one neat package)
thanks,
dan

No problems at all. All working perfectly.

Yes. Tell them you're Grumpy, or any one of the other dwarves.

All OK here in centre of Marple. Speed 4.8MBPS from speedtest.net, but we have 2 pcs sharing so I think that's equivalent to 9.6 total??? Anyway its plenty for me. Generally find Virgin fine - no probs. I stay with them because guys at work tell horror stories of other ISPs (talk talk seem worst!)

Seems like its my router (again).
I'll get in touch with virgin and see if they can get someone to fix my router that dates back from the times of NTL.
Thanks for the replys.

If it is not too much a personal question to the members on here,  would someone mind telling me what sort of price they   pay for virgin ,  Im looking at having the TV, Internet,  and 2 mobile phones .  Asking around, people I  know are paying all sorts of different prices  ... so advice on how to wangle the best deal would also be appreciated too.

I pay £21.50 per month for broadband only but also because I'm an existing customer I also get mobile phone (free Blackberry) for £10.21 per month. I got rid of the house phone and tv a couple of years ago and use Freeview for tv and Vonage for phone (£6.99 per month all calls free). Vonage plugs into your BB connection and uses t'Internet.

If you're not with Virgin already it is worth looking at Utility Warehouse for everything, including gas and electric, mobiles, phone, broadband and more. Follow this link for local rep whose mum lives on your street! www.welcomefriends.co.uk I've just switched utilities to them.

I think I can get a credit for recommending you too, although I'm not too bothered about that  :D

Thanks Mark, my parents ( in law ) have the utility warehouse sorting stuff for them ... they are on the fence about them, but a friend of mine, couldnt get out of their contract quick enough with them  ... so that leaves me on the fence  too I guess . ...
