I have to use a VPN with my work (because it is secure) and it is connected to a VPN server in London. But when I try to use my virgin tv on the go I get this error. I know that it is London as the geoIP shows London.
Are Virgin preventing anyone using a VPN from using their service which we pay for? It’s not in the contract that I have to be insecure and not use a VPN?
I’d like the official word on this. Because, if Virgin are preventing people from using a service they pay for because they are protecting themselves with a VPN then I believe there is a class action opportunity.
Using a VPN which is UK based is not a bad thing, it’s a security step that everyone has the right to do, if Virgin are preventing us from using what is our right (when this is not in their T’s&C’s) means they are failing to deliver a service and are therefore in breach of their own contracts.
If you are being affected by this policy please let me know and I will build a class action case. It is your right if you have paid and they don’t deliver.
So your advice is allow Virgin to breach their own contract by reducing your security?
It is my right to employ security in my home network. Virgin do not have the right to tell me how to configure my home network and how I employ my own security policies on my network. What you are suggesting is I drop my pants for Virgin so I can watch TV. Not good advice, nor should I have to, the fact here is I pay for a service which they are not delivering.
