I think on the whole virgin products/brand is quality, but Branson should really pull the plug on this. NTL/VirginMedia etc etc are a disgrace and if I were him I would not let them use the Virgin name with a barge pole.
So Richard if you are allowing NTL to use the Virgin name my advice to you is to get them to stop now and sell up your 10.5%.
They are going to ruin your good brand and name

Here here Stiffnuts69 what a sham of a company to use the Virgin name.

Richard Branson sold Virgin Mobile to NTL, so that's now just using the name too.
Virgin Radio hasn't been a Virgin company for many years too, own by SMG.
Virgin Music is no longer a Virgin company, but owned by EMI.
Richard Branson hasn't been happy with NTL tainting the name, although he's only a 10.5% shareholder, he could decide not to continue to allow them to use the name.

Since virgin have took over its crap, at least when NTL had their "name" the net was unlimited, & the tv boxes worked properly all we get is no program information, the "technical helpline" was fee now its not & now with the "traffic management" system in place (because branson owned record stores 10.bollock shareholder or whatever, hes screwed the company simple as that, hes a greedy !!!!!!!) the net is a joke, i got fobbed off with crap, them blaming bit torrent for my net issues, im not a idiot on a computer, i got a e-mail from virgin media with speed issue tips lmao pathetic, quick enough to charge you 38 a month for a capped to 5mbit internet connection coz ya traffic count is high why offer people 20mbit lmfao its not gonna be low is it ya plank!!!!! :rotfl:

Im so glad Im gonna be rid of virginmedia. I have given my notice and all my services I have with them will stop on the 17th of april.Hurray...I will be without tv,home phone and broadband but id rather go without that have to put up with another months of wrong billing.By the way, the deposit you pay which some ppl might of when they joined does not get paid back to you like I was told.Apparently it gets deducted from your 1st months bill-so anyone cancelling should check there bills.My billing was messed up from day one. I hope I managed to find some where to live so when I move I wont be long without my new services which i will take on SKY.
