Seems a totally different 'VM' version of events - where did you get that info from ? Whatever, it seems they have decided to 'take it' it after all - the customer is always right as they now know.

Virgin's stance was to not even tell their own customers about it..... They've been quick with the 'good news they're back' emails out though ! And even quicker with the next price rise communication no doubt.

Radio 4 Media Show from 25 July (still available on iPlayer). Both sides are to blame for what happened and it seems that they managed to meet somewhere in the middle eventually.

And what good would that do? as private talks should mean that as you don't play it out in public just because there is a clamour for it.
