    Shit Virgin Media price increase......again

    So I got the e-mail stating yet another price increase from Virgin Media. That's twice in a single year! For some people, apparently it is the third price rise this year!

    I've always stuck with them as their broadband isn't rivalled in my experience, but this is getting beyond a joke now. Inflation at 0.6% I think, wages rising by 1%....and VM just apply an 8% increase! And that's just this current increase, I don't even remember how much the February increase was.

    Crooks!

    Thanks to flumperino

    yep will be phoning them this week to have it out, their customer service is fucking shit, their TIVO box is like something out of the stone age and the internet speeds are good but have to reset the router about once a week which is pissing me off
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    Ive noticed this, think my monthly bill has gone up 20 per month in just under 2 years.

    Moving house next month and thinking of going Internet only. Mate works for Sky and can get me a great deal on SkyQ for 12 months.

    Not long left talk talk and as you say they are utter shite. Went with BT and will remain with them unless something drastic changes. Very good CS and excellent service. Same physical line that I had with talk talk and bought exact same 80/20 fibre package from both. I never got over 50 down with talktalk and often get well over 80 with BT. Yes it is an extra tenner but you get what you pay for.

    Just me 2p.

    I moaned and they dropped the charge. Also there is a user on here TrueBlue24 or something like that who works for BT. Might be worth asking him if he can help with any offers... He did me :-)

    No price hikes on TalkTalk lately.
    Fast internet, solid connection. Just don't speak to them and everything is rosey. Paying 36 for Phone line and MAX Fibre.

    Sadly solid connection was not my experience at all and it seems for many.
    Also was paying for fibre max and got about 50mb down and about 2 up and after 12 months of moaning at them and being lied to I fucked them off and will never return.

    Now get well over 80mb down and always get 20 up using exact same line... Talktalk are cunts unless you get lucky

    I just called CS to try and secure a better deal, wasn't really offered much, so I've cancelled.

    I might wait to see if there is a callback from the super-retention team in a couple of weeks....or I might actually leave.

    The price increases are becoming completely unsustainable.

    Paying Talktalk 32 pm for landline + 78Mb. Fixed for 18 months. LIke others have said, they are great while things are ticking along, soon as you have a query they are a fucking time vampire.

    Been with BT openfibre now for a few weeks and I can see no problems, it works end of, the customer support are very good compared to virmins

    I got my final bill after they tried to take another month out of me, even though I had give them a month notice. I knew they would fuck up again, My new bill is actually .72p which I will not pay as its handling charges.

    My mobile supplier is also a lot better than I was getting virmin media with 4g in nearly all the places I go

    Hi Guys,
    Well come to forum site.We know he grew up as a little sparkler from the old shinsplints and then he turned into a bonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shit firestorm. If We get to be married to Barb we willl have total control of Sunnyvale and then. We can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his flatfishes forever. With any luck he'll drown in the undershot of that wave.
    Thanks.
