TD sees a chink of light... :-\

Quote..."Virgin Media's General Statement

"As part of our on-going review of services, we’re making some changes to our cable pricing from April 1st to make sure we are continuing to provide the best home entertainment services to you.

We’re writing to customers affected now to explain how they will be affected throughout February so you should receive a letter soon detailing any changes that will be made to your monthly price."

That would seem to exclude Virgin National (ADSL) users........or do I get it wrong ?

No, I think that's the situation - it applies to  VM cable only.
