How much do you pay for broadband?
I’m on Virgin Fibre 200 it’s about £38 but no phone line rental needed with Virgin. http://www.virginmedia.com/shop/broadband/broadband-only.html
Gets my goat that all the providers make you have a phone line with their packages. Hardly anyone needs a home phone line these days!Posted 6 months agon0b0dy0ftheg0atMember
BT Infinity 2 for ~£16pcm (after they increased from the original “personal offer” of £14pcm for 24 months from summer 2016), plus BT landline paid in a lump sum of ~£208 for 12 months (means one month free compared to paying monthly).
We barely use the landline despite the free up to 60 min free calls at the weekend, but then we barely use our mobiles for calls either.
There was a deal recently by Plusnet which was quite attractive is you got rid of the free weekend calls. Well worth checking Topcashback/Quidco for nice deals for switching, we got ~£120 when we switched to BT a few years back.
So ~£33pcm all-in.Posted 6 months agocheers_driveMember
We’ve been with Virgin for 12 years and the broadband is generally fast and reliable, we also had Virgin TV but got rid of that a few years back. It bothers me that they put the bill up every 6 months, if it always corresponded with an increase in speed I wouldn’t mind so much or would downgrade to a lower.Posted 6 months ago
Current package is is SuperFibre 50 with phone line (don’t need it but have to have it), cost now is £42.50 per month.
I suspect changing might be cutting of my nose to spite my face (I work from home so a good, fastish connection is essential) but interested to hear about others experiences we alternatives.

You can just phone up and say you’re moving to Plusnet etc and they’ll match the price for a year. We did that last year…..Posted 6 months agolightmanMember
Always been happy with virgin internet.
I don’t understand why people are happy with companies that make them threaten to leave before giving them a better price!Posted 6 months ago
FYI, Im with Virgin and it pisses me off everytime I’ve got to go through that crap, just give me a good deal in the first place.chrismacMember
I want to change, currently with Virgin and its ok but nothing special. Problem is that we cant use anyone who uses a BT copper line as we are too far away from the exchange which means we only get dial in speeds, it was very painful.
Does anyone know if Vodaphone or any other provider that doesnt use the BT copper network to get it to our housePosted 6 months agoP-JayMember
£52 a month with Virgin.
100Mbps fibre, the basic HD package and a phone line that doesn’t work for some reason and I’ve never bothered to look at.
It’s due to go up in Nov, but that can whistle for it, the Virgin box is appalling, laggy, crap interface I still find frustrating 8 months in and I’m annoyed that want extra for free to view HD channels like E4… I’ve just got to fix the aerial…Posted 6 months ago
