virgin media

Hello ,I have placed an order for VIRGIN media Broadband.

I originally asked for their'up to 4mb' for £25 a month.The priced was then dropped to £17,a special offer.

During the conversasion I asked what offer they had with their'up to 10mb'.Yet another special offer.Should of been £35,now £27 a month.Plus in a few months the 10mb will be upgraded to 20mb at no extra cost.

I was paying £28 a month with BT for their 'up to 8mb'.But could only get at times dial up speed.

It should be installed on the 3rd,not bad

What do you all think of this offer?.Cheers

I got promised 8MB+ spped, never happened mainly as a lot of BT exchanges (amd my local one) need to be updated to carry the extra load. So the promise of extra speed may not happen!

You are confusing the Virgin Media Cable service which is nothing to do with BT, with the Virgin ADSL service.

The 10Mb is cable and very reliable and consistently runs at virtually 10Mb

I think that is a good deal, and frankly cable v bt based services is starting to look like an unfair contest. It would seem that 50mb cable will be with us soon. I am not sure what the maximum possible speed is for ADSL, but if it is 16mb then a big gulf will open up soon. And at that point I guess bt/sky/tiscali customers will be looking hard at Virgin, or will be stuck with "dial-up" speeds, in relative terms.
