I'm currently paying £51 per month for my service. Just got an email telling me my monthly payment was going up £4.00
All my other providers like EE for example didnt put their cost up, so why do Virgin thing such a high percentage price increase is acceptable in the current climate. Luckily I only have a month left on my contract so will shop around.
BT changed it's terms and conditions last year <<< BT link >>>to say it would increase broadband prices by 3.9% above the first CPI rate published every year, which this year is due in 16 days. BT's sister companies, EE and Plusnet, followed suit. And that means their prices are likely to rise by an even higher percentage than Virgin's. BT's prices will rise by 4.2% under its new rules, which it has confirmed it plans to stick with.
I agree that a 9% increase in prices is exceptional during a period of low inflation, and with no change in service- no new content..new channels... and unstable internet
This year I spent 500£ to update my router because the v6 is such a poor router and Wi-Fi hub, the new one (2x Linksys vélop mx5300) doesn’t require restarting and my coverage is stronger and more stable: so it has been a great investment... but no thanks to Virgin; so in reality my broadband charge is 46 to Virgin and 50 to Linksys
it would be worth knowing whether anyone is paying less for their monthly service
Throughout 2020 Virgin Media has not put up the price of its packages so if your price has increased within this time, then this will be due to an agreed discount expiring. You should have received an end of contract notification which explained this.
