November price increase.

Perhaps considering all the many problems being reported on this forum, my area has been showing different TV problems for weeks, Virgin Media should reward its loyal customers who haven't jumped ship rather than new customers by not only cancelling the November price increase but actually giving a discount for the poor service.

Oops, just watched a flight of pigs pass the window.

Re: November price increase.

Just as after a minimal period, mobile phone contracts can be adjusted and discounted to a sim only deal to reflect hardware costs have been checked etc.  It's always puzzles me on why the likes of sky & VM continue to try & charge customers after a minimal period the same level of charges as they do\did when packages were priced to cover equipment provision, installation & minimal profit!.  Surely costs should automatically drop after 18 months (if in return for new 12 month contracts) to reflect the above and not go up until or unless customers are pushed to far and call the leave.

And before anyone says but with VM the equipment is only ever rented and never owned by the customer etc, well the equipment costs are still going to have been covered inside the first 18 months regardless of ownership.
