The pattern of voice line rental increases continues now that Virgin Media has officially updated to show its voice line rental at £16.99 per month. This price matches the rise at BT Consumer that will take effect at the start of December 2014. The prices of various other packages have changed and we have therefore updated our Virgin Media package listings.
Notifications to existing customers should have already started going out and if they are in a contract the price rises will allow them to exit a contract, but for those where Virgin Media is the only superfast broadband option it may be a case of having to put up with the price rise.
With Virgin Media it is possible to avoid the shackle of voice line rental, as they do sell three broadband only packages at £28.50, £33.50 and £41 (50 Mbps, 100 Mbps and 152 Mbps) with the two faster services qualifying for free set-up usually £49.95.
