Don't touch VIRGIN MEDIA with a bargepole

I'm too angry to go through what we've gone through these past few weeks, but for anyone with any sense, go to anyone else and NOT Virgin Media

Re: Don't touch VIRGIN MEDIA with a bargepole

The problem with changing suppliers is that they are all the same. Rip off merchants. Ever since the telecoms industry was deregulated the suppliers are ripping off customers with high charges and giving very little back. VM charge me for 50mb broadband, I do not want or need it, yet I have no choice that is all they supply. It never reaches that speed. The TV packages are rubbish and expensive. They are pricing me out of the market. 12 months ago I was paying 34.99, now without getting anything extra I am paying over £49.00, almost 50% extra. BT have just raised the line rental again, therefore VM like all the others will increase their charges. Line rental charges are the biggest single scam operated by telecoms companies. They will eventually loose customers because of this one charge.

Re: Don't touch VIRGIN MEDIA with a bargepole

Fixing the mail system would be a start, or should that read spoof system ?

Open-xchange is not a name that engenders trust given how open the system is to spammers and spoofers.

Once they have concluded their court battle  with Open Wave over the $20 million contract you awarded, maybe they can then focus on implementing some security. Heart
