I phoned the other day - waiting time was 7 minutes, so I thought they are obviously getting loads of complaints.
I explained my situation, said I could transfer to sky for £26 a month, and the silly cow gave me the phone number to call to get diconnected fromVirgin!!!!
I think if I had done it sooner I might have scored, but probably as there are so many complaints, they are not giving out any more freebies.
My worry is that Virgin/Media are now advertising that the TV package is free if you have either the Broadband and/or the phone package, and that I'd have no choice but to accept it...
After a quick phone call to upgrade we were told they could give us a better deal - they put us on Very Impressive Package @ £85 and were given free calls, movies & 10 Meg broadband!
Also told price drop in May.

Sorry to correct you, but there is a £2 per month extra charge, but still worth the increase!
No apologises needed Simon. I made a mistake, and you're right, it's an extra £2.
Now whether its worth it, well that would depend on the user. If you're currently on the 10mb, but not utilising the full bandwidth, then you are £2 worse off.
Time will tell if its 'worth' it.
THEY offered us a better deal by giving us 10mb braodband for £7.50 a month for 3 months and by altering the TV package they saved us another £11.50 a month......
I was amazed....I told all my friends and apparently they have so many deals to offer during the week and so many at the weekend so ring again I'd say.
anyway a little while ago my hubby phoned to complain about the skyone lose and he managed to get £5 off our bill and an extra tv drive for NO EXTRA cost- it pays to be persistant
just thought id let you know this, if you are buying hookie films like spiderman 3 or shrek 3 then maybe this is a result to your service restrictions
have fun guys
