Reducing Virgin cost


Standard Member
Hi, just talked to Virgin about reducing the monthly bill. The main recommendation was to switch from Large to Medium broadband - this means going from 10Mb to 2Mb.

Right now I think the speed is really good - I mainly use the internet for email and browsing, and occasional downloads.

Is it possible to predict how different going to 2Mb would be ?

Thanks, Digger

Yeah thats what I figured - its a bit like pipes - a small amount of water will go through a large or small pipe, but as soon as you have a lot of water you need a bigger pipe !

One thing I forgot to mention was the occaisional on-line gaming (PS3 / Wii).

I take the point about downloads - but if I am just browsing, using email, or on-line gaming, will I notice the difference ?

I thought large was 20mb, medium = 10mb , and 2mb was the small?

is it xl, l, and m with no s?

yup XL L and M oh and there's the super xl 50meg as you probably know (don't think that is it's name TBH tho')
nearly went with them for the 50 last week but changed my mind due to the £80 upfront + double first bill...

didn't accyuklad mention 48meg o2 on one of the other threads being a "coming soon" event??
I asked o2 customer service last night but they said BT are upgrading and if that brings faster speeds then yes they will be available
