So is it a gimmick when you buy one get one free on a product in a supermarket?It is a gimmick by its very nature. As I said, VM do not do anything that doesn't in some way profit them.
Then do not concern yourself about the fairness, or lack of it, with the 100Mb customers "only" getting a 20Mb increase and discounted monthly cost. Let the 100Mb customers worry about that, and you just concern yourself with your own packgeNo, I'm a 50Mb customer. and don't really need more than this. Hence why I'd rather get cheaper BB.
So you're saying you know, and understand, that what is happening is that VM are doubling (in most cases) customers speed and not increasing their monthly costs, yet you still seem to refuse to accept that we, as VM customers, are getting a upgrade for free?I know exactly what the VM arrangement is. I posted what VM have posted on this matter on the first page of this thread, in the second post and in advance of you joining the topic.
I've not fixated or insinuated you are a simpleton. Maybe if you spent more time speaking to VM directly about your issues and disappointments, rather than posting unrelated comments on a forum thread subject, and less time worrying about if you are simple or not, then maybe you'd be more pleased and less critical?Maybe if you stop being fixated on insinuating I'm a simpleton, you'd note I've not once complained about the upgrade as such or said it to be anything other than what it is portrayed to be. My issues lay elsewhere and in relation to how VM market such "gimmicks" and the ineptitude they regularly exhibits while doing so. Maybe if they spent more time getting what they've started right before moving on to another ad campaign riddled with mistakes then I'd be more pleased and less critical?
There you are with this simpleton thing again. Why are you so fixated on it?It is my opinion and I claim my right as a simpleton to have one
But yes, you have an opinion, and everyone is entitled to have one.
