Virgin set to increase price April 2018?

Am I right in thinking it was mentioned on these forums a while ago about another potential price increase in April 2018?

Re: Virgin set to increase price April 2018?

There were unsubstantiated claims, but no concrete evidence. Given Virgin started notifying customers about last November's price rise in August (3 months beforehand), if there was to be a major price rise in April, I'd imagine there would be letters/emails being sent out to customers around now.

Also, I'm my opinion to have another major prise rise just 5 months after the last is unlikely given the negative impact it had when Virgin had two price rises in 2016. There may well be some tinkering - perhaps phone plans etc., but I just can't see another price rise like there was in November so soon afterwards.

Re: Virgin set to increase price April 2018?

In previous years VM have split price rises to bundle customers & standalone service customers so they happen on seperate dates. Did standalone service prices rise in November, or just bundles?

I should be a mind reader.

If rumours are true - why. VM cannot justify in my opionon another price increase.

They have NOT increased any new channels.

It's simple if the wholesale price to Virgin from Sky goes up then they have to have an increase. You as Joe public will not be privy to the prices sky charge Vm. However your a mind reader so what are the costs Arthur

Re: Virgin set to increase price April 2018?

Can't see it myself - if Sky launches its Q service over Internet in the first half of 2018 the last thing VM will do to compete is hike prices.
Weren't there similar rumours this time last year of an April hike, possibly from the same source? That never happened.
Another rumour I've heard is that old chestnut of Vodaphone buying VM from Liberty. Stranger things have been known.

The force is strong on that rumour. I hope it turns out to be untrue as Vodafone would turn VM to the darkside

Spooky! Why do you say that and what do you think the implications for subscribers would be?

Pointless posts removed.

This is the last time I'm going to warn you two (Old Boy & denphone) about your silly bickering in threads.

Next time I come across it I will suspend you both for a few days. Knock it off.

Re: Virgin set to increase price April 2018?

To confirm the price rise was info i was given by a source, more reliable sources i've spoken too have confirmed what a few others have said the price rise is unlikely in April.
We think there may be one around October/November.
If my sources are wrong i'm not afraid to hold up my arms and admit i had wrong information given to me.
