    Red face Your experiance with virgin media

    Hi guys, I've been getting fed up with my broadband service over the past year the speed has gone from 13 mbps to about 3 mbps. I understand its not my isps fault, as its the bt wiring that so ****. I've had bt over they took a look and they blamed me said I messed with their wiring ( which I have no access to) and charged me 125 quid.
    Any ways so I want to ditch bt and get virgin phone and broadband pack. What has your experience been like with virgin media? What sort of speed do you get?
    Sorry if there are any mistakes above I'm using my phone.

    Get in touch with spenny mate, he works for Virgin and does deals. I've been with Virgin for a while now, very happy with it, especially 20mb broadband.

    Vehicle : Lada

    Trim : Riva

    Engine : 6.0 V12

    Year : 1954

    Mileage : 567890987

    Been with them for years and years, right from 56k days, and could count on 1 hand the amount of times its gone down. Im only on the 10meg BB and just did a test and am getting 9.69 mb/s Download speed.
    Always found them reliable and never had any issue with the amount of bandwidth I use. I recently had an issue with my modem and as it was 7 years old they just sent out a new one, no questions asked. Still a few people offering free BB these days but I rather pay for a good service than get a rubbish one for free.

    Virgin all the way for me.

    I recently terminated my TV service as part of my bundle (Broadband and TV)
    The price of this has slowly crept up over the last 18 months, from £20 per month in 2009 (no price change since 2006) to £28 next month

    I have reported three loss of Broadband and TV in excess of 24 hours, each has been compensated by a full month refund, since 2005
    Last month there was a loss of TV for 36 hours, and all I was given was a "We are aware there is a fault", hence why the TV contract has been terminated
