Re: 500Mb now available as standalone

I'd love 500 to be available in my area for the upload.
I pay £89 for broadband, all tv, land line and an unlimited data sim


The 350 & 500 packages have the same upload. So you might still be able to get the 350 package and pay less if you want higher upload. Or are you in one of those areas where you're limited to the 200 package?

EDIT - the little tinkers have adjusted the new customer packages to only 20mb on the 350, it did used to be 36.

I currently pay £35 for phone and M350 and talked to them yesterday about upgrading.

I got M500 for £45, so an extra £10 a month but also a £20 credit.

What did they quote you if you don't mind me asking?


My mate beat that. He upgraded to M500 from M350 for just £40 a month but no credit. He happy his download speed is 548Mbps and 41Mbps up


How is he managing to get 41mb up?

The profile is limited to 38520000 i.e. 38.5Mbps?

I spoke to them on the online chat, took about 2 hours for them to get back to me.

When I joined VM I was paying £30 for talk weekend phone and M200.

I upgraded from M200 to M350 for an extra £5

and now I upgraded to M500 for an extra £10 bringing my monthly total to £45.

Back when I was with Talk Talk I was getting 80mb and phone for £35 so for £45 with what I got now that seems good to me.

And of course I got this £20 bill credit as well to sweeten the deal.

My discounts end in November after 12 months of being with them and I will be paying £69

But I guess I can talk to them about getting a better price when the time comes.

When I put my details in on the website it said I could get 500 but when they rang me back they could only do 350/20. I'd just like some extra upload speed as I stream sim racing online.

I just glad PN give me a good deal and excellent below £10 a month for home fibre 80/20 as this speed are more than enough for everyones in UK. Why do you need faster speed with expensive for?

I've 4 people using the connection - adslmax i thought you quit here? Please go elsewhere, with your stupid comments.

Why do you need 80Mb? You have 80mb, I have 500Mb between 4 heavy users. Simple really

Oh get out of here, the package is still my old one on their site, it obviously is still processing. Why would they lie? I just went from £32 to £51 and signed a new 18 month deal.
