Hi! I've taken a new role at work and will be getting a small payrise (nothing particularly significant, only 100-150 more p/m after tax). I'm currently with Sky and their service recently has been unstable and slow and I'm just generally fed up with them. I'm more or less at the end of my contract with them and think I'll be leaving as soon as possible for literally anyone that isn't them, Virgin or not. What are peoples experiences with VM here? I'm in the Norwich area.

Cheers!

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

There are a number of threads about VM if you search for them e.g. Advice needed on alternative broadband/homephone provider As with many things you can be lucky or unlucky. My son got a good deal four years ago or so he thought but telephone was always being disconnected by the over zealous green box men. The internet was mostly good however the amount of spam received was awful. Added to which after 12 months they bumped the monthly cost up to £80 per month. I think the industry itself is disreputable to be honest which makes the majority of ISPs the same but that is just my opinion I am sure others will have alternative opinions

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Why not go for the broadband service only and put the remainder of the -first - month's salary into a large terrestrial aerial to get a reliable service for your TVs ?

Honestly they all seem as bad as eachother. I'd only go with Virgin because their infrastructure is much faster than Openreach. I'm not going to bother with a landline phone either, I never use it so why pay for it! :)

I will be! My parents have the Virgin TV box, picture is good enough and they've never complained about it not working but bugger is it slow and clunky! Any particular favourites?

Hedge your bets and get a VOIP tel. # from Voipfone or Sipgate. Virtually zero cost.
