Re: VM News Another Price Increase

4 increase coming up for me if I don't do anything. I do need to have a closer look at my account details though as it says my plan is going up 4pm from September 1st, but I think my discount is due to finish in September as well.

Are retention's now based away from the UK?

How is that a good option price wise?

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

I have just checked and my discount finishes in September, so my monthly fee is going up including the price rise from 77 to 82.
I have Full House TV (XL), Vivid 100 Broadband and Phone Talk more anytime.

We are both over 65 but do not really want to trim the package, are we paying too much because I understand we can cancel the contract because of the above average price increase.
TIA

Our virgin contact is up in October and the price is set to go upto 92.00 (not added the price increase to this as not had email yet)

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

I couldn't see myself ditching VM broadband and going back to 60ish.

Ok thanks hadn't noticed that , it depends what you use the internet for I guess our 76/20 connection is more than enough for our households use , many times we'll have multiple TV's watching Netflix or Amazon UHD with someone using the web and never really had any issues. I have the option of 300mb + from several providers but don't think my current use warrants the extra outlay.

Re: VM News Another Price Increase

If VM don't care about you, why are they giving you a 50 one-off credit?

Kind of cancels out the price increase assuming this didn't start a new 12 month contract?

I've never heard of anyone having to pay VM for device support!
