Does having 100mb as opposed to 200 cause an issue?
a month ago
I recently phoned VM as I was getting behind with my payments due to the fact that my two grown up daughters decided to fly the nest leaving me with a full house package and 200mb that wasn't really necessary for me and the wife, plus £143 a month is now too steep for our finances having lost the "board" payments from the kids.
The guy from india in "retentions" (he said) suggested a drop to the basic package at around £55 a month which sounded fine to me but then he said my usage was over 500gb per month (probably due to the fact we use Netflix a lot)
He said if we were to continue using the amount we are then he would recommend we continue with the 200mb so as not to have "problems" with streaming downloads so I should keep the 200 and the price would be £75.50 per month.
Now a mate of mine on a BT package that tops out at 50mb (if he's lucky) has no issues at all with Netflix etc.
Can anyone enlighten me as to why I should have streaming problems with 100mb on a pure cable connection when other people without this seem to do fine.
