Re: Contract expiry downgrade

Joining in

I've had the same problem - my broadband contract is coming to an end, and I wanted to move to a new contract with a cheaper monthly payment (and accept a slower speed). I managed to get through to the call centre, but the person told me there was no option to downgrade - only to upgrade, at an increased monthly payment. They told me to go via the Virgin website, but again all i had the option for under 'Change my Package' was the option to upgrade for a higher monthly payment. I'm not very happy!!

I navigated to the link you sent @Akua_A , but it just takes me to the 'Change your Package' area and only offers *upgrading* from M350 to M500 or Gig1, whihc both cost more that my current deal. That's not what I want - I want to be able to move to a *cheaper* deal!

You will need to call in to renegotiate your package. What you want to achieve, can't be done via this forum. It's possible that the bundle you are on is sufficiently discounted, that alternatives are not as cost-effective - but you'll only be sure by calling back and speaking to someone else.
