I’d say it was a 9 month deal you had previously, I’ve never heard of a 10 month deal, anyway if you’ve been offered another 9 month deal, then take the hand off them. That’s the biggest deal that’s currently available. I have heard of the odd person getting a 12 month deal, but generally theses are reserved for long time customers who have never had a deal and also takes all 3 services.

I wouldn't believe a word any VM rep says.
Last time I talked to them, I was told there were no offers available so I told them to check out boards as people on there were saying they were getting offers and was told that they don't have access to the Internet!
I was told by someone who worked there for a while that they check this thread all the time!

Not sure if this is correct place to post but I've no other way of checking; is anyone in Carlow Town having Virgin Media Broadband issues this evening?

Constant buffering, pics out of sync with audio & freezing.

Have unplugged modem/did a reset; no point ringing 1908 as their CS is closed since 5 O'Clock, 6pm or maybe 9. No automated recorded message of an outage; it has the hallmarks of a DDOS due to its stuttering.

So after no one rang me back and chat said there was no record of that, rang loyalty again and get to keep what I have and with 6 months at half price, I'm delighted with that. Hopefully next year I can go the road of SIRO.

I got offered 9 months €15 off on my 360mb, turned that down, then offered 6 months half price and have turned that down also. I had a 6 month half price in this current contract which is up in 2 weeks, so I told them straight out that only way I’ll be staying is if they offered me 9 months half price. He wouldn’t budge so I’ve started the cancellation process, I’ll buzz them in a couple of weeks and chance them again then. I think the issue is I only have one service with them these days, cancelled the phone last year.

Just did a Speedtest with Ookla; the stats're grim enough & I think that's what's causing the RTE Player to buffer maybe?

38 Ping 23.52 D/L & 24 U/L....

Got Siro 1GB installed this week 35 a month . Virgin 360MB contract Ending next month so rang Virgin on Monday to give my 30 notice to cancel.

Virgin offering me 1GB plan for 42.5 for 9 month and full 80 for last 3 months , not as competitive but tempted to cancel my SIro in the cooling off period.

So far the Siro has been strong coverage wise , 950mb wired but only 350-400 on WiFi at best which is poor when fixed line is 1GB. Virgin 360mb getting me anywhere between 150-250 normally but can down to 60-70 at peak evenings . it’s 360 all the time since I phoned to cancel ��

Anyone have thoughts on the virgin 1GB? Appreciate any reviews

If they offered me that deal on the 1GB deal I’d take it also. I might change them again tomorrow.

I'm on 240 MB; would there be a reason for it to be getting throttled?

All that uses it is laptop & it & modem're looking at each other; about 2-3 metres away like?

Unplugged modem & now it's 11 Ping 55.87 D/L & 23.46 U/L......still not within an asses roar of what I should be getting & RTE Player is unwatchable.
