Re: 30M minimum by end of 2012

You only get those prices if you take the phone line. Base price for 10Mbps without it is £21 going up to £22.50 in April. If you take the phone line and don't use it then add about £15 to those discounted prices. If you do use it then investigate alternatives because VM telephony is not competitive.

Even so the price for 50Mbps and soon to be 100Mbps is excellent for those in areas where VM still actually deliver anything close to their advertised speeds.

Re: 30MB minimum by end of 2012

I tested STM again last night and it appears to be around 1gig or so.

I checked the STM table which shows the L 10mbit package as 1.5gig limit.

10mbit is usually £4 cheaper than 30mbit so I think the STM limit is lower on this new 30mbit package than it is on the higher priced one.

I just had a superhub delivered, I called about reducing services and was told 10meg going to 20meg then at later date 30 so you might as well have superhub now.

I said (and maintain) there will never be a time when most people have Superhubs as 10mb (70% of VM customers) is going to 20mb and not getting a Superhub.

Re: 30MB minimum by end of 2012

the point is getting rid of non docsis3. plus with this new SuperHub coming (Qas) they may as well push the current SuperHub1 stock.. killing a few birds with 1 stone. why they made it hard for themselves i dont know.

Re: 30MB minimum by end of 2012

Virgin Media CEO Neil Berkett says he is open to including OTT offerings from the likes of Netflix and Lovefilm.

Speaking exclusively to DTVE at Cable Congress, Berkett said that the UK cable operator would make TiVo its basic offering, bundled with 30Mbps internet access and telephony.

Could this mean that I was right after all!!

yup, it makes sense. 30mbit is a nice bottom speed to have and makes a mockery of adsl when it come to adverts and comparing speed
