  1. Great too bad I can’t get cable where I am in the UK, stuck with a crap 1MB BT line like usual.

  2. What they don’t tell you is that they are increasing the cost from £18 to £20 permonth which they have done to long standing customer from 512k to 1MB to 2MB without giving them the option to stay with the service that they originaly purchased enen though it may meet the customers requirement. It not the extra £2 per month that is the issue just Virgins approach to this!!
