/ Virgin media broadband. Good/Bad/Indifferent?
It was £35 when I signed up. It crept up to around £65 last year and has gone up to £78 on my last bill!
I did haggle them down about two years back but it only stayed as agreed for a few months. I don't trust them.
Take a look at Vodafone. Same fibre system as virgin but when we looked into it a cheaper monthly price (just phone broadband).
We are thinking of moving as whilst no major problems with virgin, their hard sell tactics in trying to 'upgrade' our package is becoming a nuisance.
I used that to my advantage in the end and got my package upgraded, completely free of charge and given an £8 a month discount. The new box and hub are definitely worth it. 220Mb/s broadband at times.
Thanks everyone for the feedback, certainly more positive comments than I expected! Think I'll go with Virgin, as I can only get around a maximum 30Mb with Sky due to the distance to my nearest exchange/cabinet. For similar money I can get 200Mb and more channels (which I probably won't watch as I don't watch that many now)
Thanks again, all
> Tivo box is now dated compared to other platforms.
Do you have the latest box?
I think it compares quite well to the Sky box I have used elsewhere. Some nice features and some annoyances on each but overall, I think the Virgin one is as good as Sky's.
I do have the latest Tivo box. My understanding was that the Sky Q box had leapfrogged the Tivo box (it can record 6 channels at once verses 3 on the Tivo, for instance). It's still pretty good but the guide is slow (compared to Apple TV, for instance).
