People are using their broadband a ton more than they used to and prices were steady for ages while speeds went up, so this all makes sense to be honest.
Just under 10% increase when inflation is running way lower.... On that logic our i7 would cost about £4 billion as it does so much more than a ZX81....... weird!
We're stuck with them and on the basic 30mb deal - no phone or television - that's from 100mb, basic tv and phone package just over a year ago.
Truthfully IF BT hadn't quoted over 6 months of the Virgin charge for juat installing a line that already exists, we'd have gone already.
It wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't spent about an hour negotiating with retentions only to be billed the same as before and the a** h*** who dealt with the complaint decided that all that could have been offered was 'LIST PRICE'.
Yes I hate the D**b F***s but Virgin are still the best deal amongst a bunch of crooks who wouldn't be allowed to sell double glazing - ISPs that is.
It's a lot easier to work through a server in Holland, for stuff, with a slow connection at home (just for vonage, connection and downloads).
£26 a month for 30mb..... what have the Yanks been smokin'...... and if they follow the business patterns of USAISPs they'll increase at a price until the customer base stabilises without new infrastructure and milk the profits..... used to be called asset stripping when I were a lad.
