they always waiver the £50 install fee (same as talktalk, i moved it to another house and did not get charged they just removed it)

It's a welcome step, but still not cheap enough to tempt me. Now if it was £15 per month for the length of the contract then I would. Unless the miracle happens and my under review cab finds a pile of cash down the back of it's sofa.

Kebabselector if you want cheap then go to talk talk etc where the rest of the people that want cheap go to... it's a no brainer ....

It all depends how much you want! Line rental is the cost problem!
IF you can manage on just a very few things, and DO NOT WANT Gaming, *large files* download, you can get 2GB data for £15 to use a mobile phone to give you internet! (tethering and portable hotspot)

These are **one month** contracts, nothing extra to pay!

for £2-7 more you can get BT mobile for £17-£25 (depending when you read this) and have 20GB of data

Do note my posts are aimed at those that do not have *reliable* cash flow... :)

I'm with Kebabselector on this one. A welcome gesture... but it's still too expensive for Broadband ONLY. I'll stay with my current cheaper Plusnet Fibre along with BT Basic landline @ around £15 per Quarter!! Do better than this Virgin & you will have my business.

We get 70Mbps for £27.65 after the latest price hike from Virgin.

Have they slipped up and announced yet another raise to £30 in six months?

Seems the marketing dept need slapped wristies....

fox-uk: it of course depends where you live, and the difficulty of routing it...

DO note that Virgin may NOT be what you want, if you want 'minority' things like good upload speed, low ping, etc...
