Hi guys

I would really appreciate a little advice if possible ...

I moved into my house almost 2 years ago at the time i took out a virgin package with TV phone and BB.
I never use the landline and a few month back i had the TV knocked down to just freeview channels (hardly watch any TV)
My brothers a roofer and can easily run another arial to the room which currently has the box in and i dont think that a freeview box would be very expensive
I am currently paying around £36/month and i am thinking about having it cut to BB only. does anyone have any experiance of doing this with virgin ?

my 2 boys use the internet loads as they play PC games online xbox live and youtube alot .. but the BB we have at the min seems to cope pretty well.

I also have a SIM only (30 day contaract) with them thats £11/month and i would want to keep this to.

Im going to call tonight when i get home from work .. fingers crossed ;)

any advice would be great

    Do let us know how you get on

    I tried doing this with Virgin a year or two ago and got told that, because I would lose my discount by reverting to broadband only, I would end up paying more for just having broadband than I would by keeping my broadband, phone and TV.

    Absolute nonsense!

    Last time I called up.
    I ended getting BB,phone and TV for not much more than BB on its own (100 meg admittedly)
