Virgin Media - new offers from 28th Oct?


[link to this post]
 
The Virgin Media website is currently splurged all over with "OMG - Offers Must Go - Last chance to get up to 6 months half price - Hurry - must end 27th October" - alongside this hyperactive text is a countdown timer on some pages!

I think they've been running this 6 months half price thing for ages - question is, will they replace it with some other equally good offer? I guess no-one outside Virgin Media knows (or maybe they do?), but going on VM's past history, is some other offer likely to pop up tomorrow or in a week or two's time?

I hope they scrap it all, then the price rises won't happen. Which I am sure is a factor to claw it back

But no not likely to. There's always an offer on to get you as a cutomer then once you are the service goes to [censored] as does the support and you get a price rise.

I am sure for many the new STM levels are a saving grace but that's about it.

Only if congestion is low enough for you to actually notice STM is the cause of your slow evening connection.

Just updated our listings now that Virgin has updated its site

Some offers are slightly worse, and the free install on the broadband only was meant to happen, but listings say otherwise, we have sent someone to investigate

It must be a full time job keeping up with just VM changing offers let alone all the rest frown

BTW VM has stopped taking on new Virgin National customers - try entering a postcode outside their coverage and they just provide a link to SimlifyDigital

Well it is my job these days, thinkbroadband is a full time thing for me. Hence all the speed test and mapping stuff.
