Siro 1000Mbps is available in our location through Vodafone so I'm switching to that from Virgin, will save something like 200 a year. We've had problems in the last few months with Virgin broadband, the speeds are not what they were when we first got it without nothing much changing in our house.

I am delighted with the price! It includes unlimited calls to landlines and mobiles too. Was just chanceing my arm with the speed . I've been with them since around 09 and really can't fault them as a provider.

Just got onto Virgin via Whatsapp. Told them I wasn't happy about the price increase and asked how to cancel. They just responded.

"Thanks for that, one of our team with be in touch within 48 hours to talk through the next steps. If for any reason we are unable to contact you please be aware that your account will close in 30 days."

Seems my 30 days notice to them was done through Whatsapp.

Moving to Sky

I don't need 500mb a second, most people don't. Most people cannot even access it due to limitation of WiFi.

If I get 70-80 megabyte with Sky, I'd be happy.

Sky TV is the gold standard. Virgin TV is pretty unusable.

Rang this morning and much different experience to last year, shocking attitude!
  • Started about investing in network (haven't seen speed increase in at least a year)
  • On about broadband like water and electricity and that TV is dying and people only come to Virgin for one thing
  • How great virgin are for not capping the download limit, I had a quick look and Sky and Eir are 1TB or so, want to be do some downloading to break that

Got offered E33 for six months then E72 or so for six months, couldn't explain in simple English why a E64 bill with E3.50 increase will then be E72

I think come next year ill be ringing to decrease speeds from Virgin as thanks to older estates it's them or back to ages for downloading


Rang again and said about the attitude I got and not happy

Now after deal my bill goes up the 3.50 listed not over the 5 that wasn't told why

Asked about downgrading speed and only save 5

I did about 3 weeks ago (4th year in row ) Also got a letter yesterday for price hike but when questioned was told they are from a few weeks ago and once my agreement was made before this letter I wasn’t going to get price bump

most modern routers do, far better to split the networks anyway as you get way better speeds.
