I reduceing my Big Bang to TV M and keeping the TiVo + BB + phone

I contacted VM to reducing my TV to M and keeping my 500 Gig TiVo and keeping my 150 Mb/s BB and keep my landline which I pay the rental in advance.

I was told that reducing my TV would mean my BB reducing to 100 Mb/s and accepting a 12 month contract..

Why reducing my TV can affect my BB?

Thanks for that explanation, while I was on the phone to VM the agent said that she did no know why.
What is the upload speed on the 100 Mb/s?

Only if you go from Big Bang to Big Easy  (which actually has 50 Mbps, unless it has been increased).  However if all you do is reduce the TV, you can end up spending more than you would on the big package.   If you pretend you are a brand new customer and configure your package on the virgin website, you find that tinkering with the TV and Broadband can lead to a massive hike.  Not really sure why Virgin can't do a bit of reasonable tailoring of packages rather than the Big Easy/Fun/Bang/Kahuna etc.  Some people will want lots of TV and not care about a fast broadband and vice versa.
