Re: Where will 500 Mbps roll out first?

Yep, I just looked at the broadband available for my area with no mention of 500 on Broadband only, and under bundles there is the V.VIP which says " 

 " Exclusive ultrafast average speeds of 516Mbps plus our new Intelligent WiFi. "

Well thats disappointing, not even a balance in the other package upload speeds :{

Vivid 500 better not be exclusive to that bundle as I just want the broadband only Smiley Mad


It does look likely that, for the moment at least, Vivid 500 is only being offered as part of the top VIP package. Standalone does not mention it.

 

Even the Boosted Broadband option (take a 2GB phone sim contract alongside) does not give an option for a boosted 350 --> 500

 

More info here https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2019/04/isp-virgin-media-uk-launch-new-500mbps-broadband-and-t...

 

I notice that the prices have received an uplift too.

Re: Where will 500 Mbps roll out first?

500 available in area 25 Don't want to have to pay extra £30.00 on top of what i have now to just get an extra 100meg or so

don't want sports channels and don't use the landline at all. already got a mobile account.
So nothing worth paying extra for

You could always call the cancellation team and ask for some new deal!, but then that would also put you in a new contract.

Re: Where will 500 Mbps roll out first?

May try it later, been on broadband only with them since 2002 so I have no issues renewing my contract. But I'm 90% sure they won't be giving me 500 without the stupid bundle which I have no use for.
