    I have been with VM for yonks , long before NTL and Encom.
    Friends think I'm a mug as I give them £125 a month and I would like some feedback as to what others with a similar package pay.
    I have the Big Kahuna Sports and Movies Bundle:
    Talk WE, 1 Additional V Box, Tivo, Sky Cinema 2, Sky Sports 1, SS HD Pack, Full TV (XL), V HD, Vivid 152, Sky Cinema 1 and Sky Sports2

    For that they ask me for Big Kahuna £106.49 and Telephone Line Rental £17.99.

    I don't use the landline and would appreciate your advice as to whether I'm paying too much and where I might save some money. Thanks.

    I have to say that I am very happy with the service but not my bill.

    Well currently there is the MSE deal with Sky which gives all TV channels for £30 a month - you would need to add line rental, broadband and calls to that but should be in the region of £50 for ADSL broadband - fibre is probabyl slightly more. Either way its a lot less than £125

    You are paying too much. You basically have the VIP bundle without the upgraded broadband. Which costs £120 (including line rental)

    so at the very least you should be able to switch to that and save £5/month.

    but you could probably arrange a deal to get it even cheaper
