As with Sky, BT and all the others. Inflation makes this unavoidable.

This time, however, I wonder if they will be throwing lots of goodies in as well.

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

I'm really confused by Virgin's strategy with broadband speeds.
At the start of the year they were offering Superfibre 50 for £32.25 per month.
Then, just 4 months ago, they made a big song and dance abut 'ultrafast' Vivid 100 being their standard entry-level speed.
But now they have introduced Vivid 50 (originally as a budget product) at £33 per month as their basic speed.
Where is the logic in any of that? I get the impression they just make it up as they go along.

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

VIVID 50 is only available on it's own or with a phone line.

If you take or upgrade to all three services, you'll have VIVID 100 as the minimum.

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

4.7% price increase this autumn will affect up to five million households

Customers with Virgin broadband, phone and TV plans will see their bills rise by £3.49 to £3.99

Broadband only and broadband and phone customers will see their bills go up by £1.99 to £2.99

In a statement, the network also announced the arrival of three new packages this autumn, including the 'Full House' plan that allows customers to bolt on Sky channels to their package.

Prices start from £15 for Sky Cinema, £25 for Sky Sports and £35 for both.
