Change in terms of contract?

CONTRACT CHANGE: Virgin Mobile plans will soon include calls to 1850, 1890, 0818 and 076 numbers and the out of bundle rates for 1850 will change. For more info visit virginmedia.ie/nongeo. This change takes effect on November 28th 2019.

Could I get out of contract with this?

Doubt it- they're giving you something free- it doesn't affect your contract with them?

Pushed and only got 6 months half price. I've had numerous 6 month half price deals and recently a 9 months half price deal. They gave me the spiel that they're not doing 6/9 month deals anymore. Blah blah blah, lots of excuses... hold please.... 6 months half price.

Was offered 15 off my Broadband and Phone package for 6 months. Obviously I refused and then offered 15 off for 9 months which I also refused. Asked could I get half price for 6 months was put on hold for a minute then the operator said ok you can have 6 months at half price. Happy enough with that as it’s the same deal I got last year. No Siro here so it’s easily the best service on offer.

well i got stung after cancelling and getting call back from VM with offer for 9mo half price on existing contract, they still cancelled which resulted in me having to call em back and then getting new contract, they bumped me to 500mb as well- no clue whats that about, anyhow
this resulted in day being offline, then checked account and sure enough they charged me for a full month, second call made and its their system at fault and i should get balanced it out next month- which prob might or will add to contract being extended now past a year.


thou most mad about is that they never bothered to send in contract with the deal in place was told day or two but been 3 days and dont imagine it will land over weekend into my email.

now the 1908 ? will be paid line which will be total rip off, as tried whatsapp in recent days and whoever sits in india or who knows cant help with anything.


i might be naive but they are breaking rules/law when it comes to business and as i see it im the one carrying the cost, even thou every issue stems from their side.

as much as they are reliable on connection and general fixes, but seems they trimmed support to the bone, where no one cares much anymore.

I've been getting 6 and 9 month deals the last few years. I rang and they wouldn't offer me that again and offered 15 off for 6 months. I said no and to go ahead and cancel.

Am going to sign up with Sky as it's so much cheaper at 35pm. My neighbour has Sky broadband and gets 50mbps broadband and that will do fine. Works out at €420 for the year as opposed to €618. And Virgin will probably add another €5 per month to that later in the year like they always do

Got the same offer earlier in the week; called up to cancel, said I was going to SIRO and might even be back with Virgin again in a year's time, but wanted the one year introductory offer, etc... The guy offered me 6 months 1/2 price (€58 > €29) first time, said I wouldn't get a better offer from Virgin so agreed to it. Call told 5 mins total, better than previous years haggling and messing

Anyone got a 9month half price deal at all recently??

Got it last year and best they offered me is 6month this time around. I've indicated that I'm going to cancel on Monday, I'm in my last month.

Will possibly just sign up again with a different name and account of a housemate

Yea I recently got 9 months half price for BB and phone.
I had to go through with my cancellation and they rang me about a week later. I wasn't due to be cut off for another two weeks.

Letter in the post this morning, the usual annual €3.50 price increase coming in 2020. Wonder at what stage they'll stop doing this, price has probably doubled over the last few years and the speed increases are just diminishing returns at this stage.

Hopefully they'll start offering a few 9 month half-price deals now the yearly increase is here.
