Except for Technology

QLED TVs for example lot cheaper now and SSDs another good example

Also if you do consider Mobile tariffs for example I get unlimited minutes and texts for £21 per month which includes a £400 phone so my calls text and data costs less than a tenner. Go back 20 years and you would have been paying 40p per minute an 10p per text so 20 mins of calls and 20 texts would swallow £10 and you would have no data.

Also consider land lines. There never used to inclusive packages and you could end up running up quite a bill and dial up internet before screaming.net and inclusive deals you were charged per minute so a heavy month on the net could easily cost £100

So if you take all that into consideration Call charges are still a lot cheaper now than they were 20+ years ago

Am I correct in thinking I have a 14 day cooling off period after negotiating, with no penalty?

Re: Important: Your phone service is changing

just had an email to say this comes into effect 11th May, I assume they have some way to justify charging you line rental even thought you're not using the line, for the "admin" etc for the "new" system

My parents live locally, only have a phone through Virgin, no internet or cable TV (they had cable years and years ago but cancelled it, and think about getting internet now and again) so what happens to them?

Re: Important: Your phone service is changing

You're still using specific technology that runs the phone service that's separate to the Fibre service so costs to run that still apply.

Customers with no broadband get moved over onto a Hub with no broadband or WiFi enabled.

In the end I zapped all my TV & phoneline. My pocket thanked me (I also got rid of TV licence too)

So if you don't want the phone service , and it is separate it can be disconnected . I don't pay open reach or anyone else for a line I don't use but it is in my home

Yes. Virgin Media have never forced you to have a home phone to get broadband or TV.

The Hub based lines can also be switched off separately to having Virgin Fibre broadband.
