Virgin Media Upgrades
« on: January 17, 2020, 09:17:40 PM »

I haves been upgraded - foc - to  100mbs. My package was 50mbs.

I don't receive any notification - a random speedtest on my part identified it.

I suppose I may have a contract price haggle come contract renewal but very happy with things at the moment.

@stevebrass you must be one of the 1 million:

virgin's current pricing is a bit crazy, 50 down 5 up is £28 a month, but new customers get 108 down and 10 up for £27 a month  :lol:

Are they still selling 50/5?

Grandfathering of old tiers isn't uncommon. They're left as they are rather than messing around with billing for them as a general rule worldwide, with upgrade to new speeds rather than reduction in pricing.

New customer discounts excepted naturally.

No. It wasn't possible for me to purchase in December either online, over the phone or in person from the salesman.

£25/month for 110/10 was the most basic package available to me.
