Virgin media free upgrade to 200mb

  martd7 18:41 13 Oct 2015

Has anyone on virgin media had a phone call offering loyal customers free upgrade to 200mb Broadband if you try out sky sports and movies package for a month? I had one and the caller was desperate for me to try it out,ive not taken the offer as I'm a bit dubious its a free upgrade

I just checked my account at virginmedia and it says.

**Your connection speed will increase from up to 100Mbps to up to 150Mbps. It's all thanks to DOCSIS® 3 - the magic in our cables. Your speed boost will be ready by the end of November 2015.**

I have not had any phone calls from VM ... yet.

Bang in your postcode and see when you will get it.Took a year to get to my end of the country the last time.

They say free but you can almost guarantee that there will be a price rise shortly.
