Time to leave


[link to this post]
 
Well after many years and being with Virgin Media since the days of NTL it is time to leave.

I have had my fair share of high utilisation problems as well as high ping and jitter in gaming but the icing on the cake was now that I can no longer stream my gaming to twitch because of the new Traffic management.

I ordered BT Infinity 2 yesterday. I would say my stay with VM was good but it was not...

Don't cancel your cable assuming they'll turn up as promised - wait til you actually get it connected. If you check the BT community forum you'll see there are plenty of no-shows. My booking was a no show and when I called to extend my VM connection I got a good offer so cancelled Infinity instead.

I have not cancelled yet I was going to wait until I was happy before I cancel I would rather pay for 2 providers for a month than have no Internet. My install date is next Tuesday smile

Yes only speaking to a friend who's experienced this twice i'd agree.

Mind you VM never turned up twice either and he lives in central London
