Re: Virgin Media prices are going up again...

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but This is Money, has a list of how each Virgin Bundle is going to be affected by the coming November price rises:

Looks like my Mix Bundle is going up by 3.99.

Re: Virgin Media prices are going up again...

Guys, I been with virgin media broadband for over 7 years I always been a very low usage user around (200-300gb) each month.
In the last two years my broadband prices keep on going up and up I'm fed up these days I just download 24/7 for the whole month just to annoy them atleast I get my monies worth.

My last four months usage has been
April 8TB
May 18TB
June 12TB
July 11TB
200mb broadband

Re: Virgin Media prices are going up again...

As far as l am aware VM have increased prices FOUR times in the past eighteen months - l am certain someone will clarify this.

Yes, companies put prices up. BUT, not in the time period as VM.#

Sadly, at the end of the day. Its US that end up paying for it.

Have VM increased its channels. I don't think so.

The BB is totally rubbish. My BB is very slow, and when l have approached them about this. I am told by the terrible CS dept. that VM do this to slow the service down.

If you're a low user, the John Lewis tariff of 20/m seems very good.

I wonder what they'll offer those who have the higher bundles (Full house, VIP )

I currently have the full house bundle

TV XL
200Mbps BB
Phone talk weekends (never use it)
2 x V6 boxes
Hub 3

Cost 83.50 with a 3.99 rise on the way making it 87.49 from October or November

Drop the TV service and go to Freeview/Freesat augmented by streaming services - Netflix, Amazon Prime, NowTV and the free YouTube.

I basically get no use out of my TV package and have been meaning to drop it for ages. This is a good reminder for me to do so.

Yes, that's certainly the way to go if TV packages are getting too expensive. You really can still have a decent choice of programmes at a cheaper price.

However, it might be worth seeing what VM bring out this autumn - might be some decent stuff at last.

Or not.

Re: Virgin Media prices are going up again...

I suspect that rather than get more money from customers, Virgin Media may well get less as customers start looking at ways to downgrade their packages while hanging on to those elements they are really interested in.

I'm on a full house package with a Tivo box and considering dropping to the next bundle down which I think is TV Mix. Just wondering how much I will save and if I qualify for a V6 box. Also wondering if it would be possible to upgrade from my current 150 Mps broadband to 200Mps and still pay less than the 95.42 I am paying now.

Re: Virgin Media prices are going up again...

Can anyone confirm that this rise is a get out of your contract free situation? I don't want out just checking if i can legitimately use the 'thinking of leaving' to barter.
