Virgin Media to increase broadband charges AGAIN

virgin media Virgin Media are putting their prices up again, for the fourth time in three years. Something has to pay for that £3 billion fibre optic broadband network, eh?

As of Monday, Virgin Media will start telling customers about the price increases to its broadband-only tariffs. We'll tell you now, though. The cost of a 50Mbps connection is currently £28.50 a month, which will go up by 6.1% to £30.25 a month. A 100Mbps line will increase by 5.2% from £33.50 to £35.25 a month.

So, if you've been a customer with Virgin Media since 2013, then these upcoming price rises will mean that you're paying £83 a year more than when you started.

These new prices come into play in November, just in time for Christmas! Of course, if you're annoyed about this, remember - you can cancel your contract with Virgin Media without any penalty before October 31st.

This is because they've put prices up, mid-contract, which means you can walk away for free if you find a better deal. Have a shop around or, more likely, think about having a shop around and ultimately not get around to doing anything about it.

    I'm so glad I cannot get VIRGIN MEDIA where I live. I begrudge paying any company line rental when I don't use the house phone so any company that says BB is £28.50 plus line rental of £16.99 a grand total of £45.49

    Dino, you must have missed the memo, since Virgin don't require you to have a phone line, so line rental needed if one is so inclined. I quite happily browse the interwebz using Virgin squirrels without any line (other than the physical cable one).

What do you think?
