Virgin Media - Leased Line 100mb over 1gb bearer.


[link to this post]
 
So I have just ordered a virgin media DIA (leased line) for my work premises after watching leased line pricing for 2 years. The best price I had till now was £450 per month for a 100mb over 100mb bearer until 4 weeks ago when I had a random email from our account manager at VM. They could install a 100mb over 1gb bearer leased line to our business premises for £250 per month. I asked them multiple times to check the pricing for our postcode even asking multiple people and it all came back at the same price. I am waiting for the survey to be carried out and suspect there will be bad news in the form of ECCs after survey or plain we got it wrong!!!. Just wondered if anyone had experienced this with VM on their leased line products?

Thanks in advance.

As long as you have a Gigabit Voucher Scheme voucher for them you're fine.

VM are being very aggressive on their retail and wholesale costs now so this is does sound right.

They also cover a far higher value of ECCs than Openreach if work is required. I don't have the docs to hand but it is about 3/4 times more than Openreach for any ECCs they would need to do.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Thanks Matt

Just been looking at the update on the order and although VM are the supplier it is actually being delivered by Talk Talk Business as they are on-net in our area and VM are not.
