I also had letter saying maintenance being done in November?
Can some one from Virgin Media please confirm if a Maintenance is also upgrades? Does it mean they will then allow me to get the 1gig broadband? I have been waiting for a long long time for 1 gig speeds and it is going to be amazing when they do finally arrive. I will ring the VM team at 8am to ask them as well just to see what they think about what that Maintenance work will be?
Thanks in advance.............
I am also kinda gutted that so many have already been able to get the upgrade. I just hope that I do not have to wait much longer. I will be dreading paying the increased amount though £62 just for the broadband is pretty damn steep. But the retentions team might be able to bring the costs down for me I hope when they make the bundle up for me! I hope so anyway...........
I would save yourself the effort of calling in if I were you, the chances of a customer services rep having any idea what the purpose is of a specific maintenance downtime is slim to non-existent at best.
Also I am genuinely curious about why you seem so eager for a gigabit download connection - what practical difference will it actually make especially as you seem reticent about the cost increase?
I swear-down that the biggest use of a domestic one gigabit connection is to run repeated speed tests just to prove they have a one gigabit connection!
Because I am a heavy PC user and download a lot of data per day. I 100% do not just want it because I can then brag, why would I even want to do that? It is pointless.
I need a faster connection as the faster I can download files the less time it takes, meaning I can download even more because I then have extra time to do so.
It is actually not rocket science. Let me give you an example. You start a company, you need to employ a member of staff, They work an 8 hour shift. So after a month you realise more could be done if I had a second member of staff doing exactly the same job. So because currently I am on the M350 broadband, Being on the 1gig would increase my download speeds by nearly 140%. So what bothers me is people like you who do complain about people that do need the speed. We also should not have to justify why we do so either.
When you have the extra speed, you will utilise and use it more and more and thus maxing it most of the time. So increases in speeds will always be needed. Eventually we will be at 10gig speeds. Then in the next 20 years who knows. Maybe even 100gig speeds?
