Collections - Would it be better for me?

Hi there

Just had a look at these new collections that Virgin are now offering.
It says it is available for existing customers too so was wondering would the following be better for me?

Premier Collection
  • 60Mb
  • TiVo 500 with XL TV
  • Plus an extra V HD box
  • Talk weekends
Approx £60 per month (Inc. Line Rental)
https://my.virginmedia.com/customer-...llections.html

I'm currently on Triple XL and that comes to £64.96 (Inc. Line Rental)
Have no extras and currently have the V+

Do you think the collection would be better as we've agreed as a house that we do not need the unlimited calls (will just resort to using minutes on mobiles)?

Thanks
Jordan

Re: Collections - Would it be better for me?

Only you can decide if it's better for you, but if you aren't going to use the landline for calls the Collection would be better value

Re: Collections - Would it be better for me?

I should have rephrased the question :P
But thank you Ben. Just to confirm, the price is also the same for existing customers?
(Probably will be install charges etc. but that shouldn't be an issue if it works out better in the long run)

Re: Collections - Would it be better for me?

All I was offered was to drop the BB to 10 (which will go back to 30) for £2 less per month!

I phoned on Saturday and I'm now on the Premiere collection with XL phone, an extra V+ box, Sky Sports & Movies and 60Mb broadband for £96.90. So I'd ring them and see what they can do for you especially if your contact is soon up.

Re: Collections - Would it be better for me?

Don't understand why you don't pay a little extra and go VIP, 100meg Internet, 1tb TiVo 0845 numbers and skysports/movies hd

I would have lost my recordings, 60 is plenty for what we do, saynoto0870, paying less than £100 p.m. and HD is not a big deal on a 32" TV.

VIP with an extra box is £110.40 I think (less any discount I might or might not have got!).

just phoned billing department, they said i was right i was paying £10 a month more for my services and getting less than if i was on premiere collection, so his answer was to put me on another 12 month contract and charge me £49.99 to upgrade broadband to 60 meg ! told him to get stuffed ! so i called retentions told them same story and got my broadband upgraded to 60meg, dropped my pricing down to £72.90 ( £10 saving ) but still had to have a new 12 month contract tho ! i wouldnt say iam happy or unhappy somewhere in between !
