Is your Virgin Media bill too high?

  • With the recent price rises, my monthly VM bill is getting ever closer to £70 and I think it's time to do the retentions "thing" and haggle.:saint:


    I now pay £66.50 for this:


    Telephone rental and Talk Weekend

    200mb

    2 V6s

    Mix tv


    This is discounted by £8, the full price should be £74 now after the price hike. Can I do better, what are others getting?

  • Be aware that once you are off Mix TV you can't go back, it's Mixit or Maxit, sith Personal Picks as bolt-ons to the former.

  • Thanks Cheeky. I'll probably keep my packages as they are for now.

  • We pay BT around £70 per month for fibre broadband, telephone and calls including international, Sky sports and BT sports

    If They Can Do It So Can I

  • That's quite good Bryan, considering your're getting all the premium sports there. I know you've already said it in another thread, but what speed are you getting again?

    On my laptop it currently says Response time 91ms, Download 44.4 Mbps, Upload 20.8Mbps

    I am supposed to get 100 Mbps but the figures I quote are because I am using wifi

    One day I will get around to connecting up the cable and switching the wifi off, I always use the laptop next to the Hub

    If They Can Do It So Can I

  • If you have the laptop right next to the hub and have a ethernet cable, you can check anytime. Only takes seconds to check the speeds and that will tell you what speeds are coming into your home. 100mb is easily enough for most people's needs, though.

    When I posted this last year, I only realised after posting that I was still in contract, so VM wouldn't discount my package, but I've got a new deal now.


    I've lost the 200mb speeds, as I'm simply not downloading stuff at the moment. I have little time to watch tv, so no point in downloading the stuff by the bucket full.


    This is what I'm getting now:


    100mb

    Talk weekends

    MIx tv

    2 V6s


    All for £54.50.


    Quite happy with that.


    I've been told that if I want the 200mb back I should phone them up and they'll add it for £7, so I think that's really good.

  • That looks like a pretty good deal there Horizon. :thumbup:


    With just me and the OH here our 100mbs connection is quite adequate. Yes it takes a bit of time to get a 20Gbyte HD movie down but I just leave that running in the background.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

  • It'll be MixtIt TV not Mix, Horizon. They only sell MixIt and MaxIt these days, as I understand it, and you can add Personal Pick packs to the former.

  • I wouldn't patronise or support the grinning inane bearded one as he lives on his private island tax haven

    If They Can Do It So Can I

  • He doesn't have anything to do with VM apart from he receives money from them for licensing the Virgin brand to them and he used to get paid by them when he did adverts for them. That's it. He doesn't own them or anything like that.

    But he still gets money from them, not from me he won't
