    to put it simply...it sucks.

    haha we have had a virgin media package for a long time and were paying too much, considering our internet speeds were so damn slow, finally switched to sky tv phone and internet, which is overall much better, faster and more enjoyable, whos had problems with virgin broadband in the past though as it seems to be a common thing..

    Yeah, but buy a eurovox, flash it with some hacked firmware and get a splitter for the cable line, and you got yourself free virgin tv :).

    i use the normal sky tv router.. go on the web, 360 - no problems. There was a poll proving that 7 outta 10 people who used virgin were repeat sexual offends... and of course i base that on nothing..

    plus the fact that using sky means giving money to Rupert Murdoch which should be punishable by death.

    it's almost impossible to avoid, but i try my best by avoiding his papers, using freeview, not buying anything from fox etc.

    Yeah I'm on the VM fibre optic package. Speedy stuff. Takes like 30 secs to download an hour mix. Mind you I'm right by the exchange. My only gripes I've had with them is when our V+ box went mental. Got a replacement one in 2 days, which wasn't so bad

    Virgin media's new "super hub" is shit for wireless. I plugged in a Belkin Router and it works perfectly now, the actual fibre-optic connection is really fast and reliable, it's the equipment they give you that lets it down.

    yeah never use the router your ISP gives you. They gennerally just lob you with any old pencil sharpener. The one orange gave us was some next shit...
