Looking back at my Bank account and the same Virgin Deal has went up from Approx £80 to over £100 in 2 years, this is despite me threatening to cancel every year.

Currently have Broadband, TV with Sports (not HD) and Phone Line.

Who would be cheaper than Virgin? Noticed its cheaper if you area new customer, which is a complete joke.

Any advice taken, thanks.

    If you ring them they will normally give you the new customer deals,

    Every time ive looked they come out cheapest despite creeping up as you say

    I always find out what a competitor will charge for a similar service to the one I have and then phone Virgin saying I can go to xxx for less (as introductory offers usually are better than renewals). They invariably put me through to "retentions" and I end up with a price better or as good as the competition.
    If you don't already, also look at paying 12 months telephone line rental in advance. Cheaper than paying it monthly.

    Price up the competitors but bear in mind they all have a price rise around September .

    Decide what you want from the service and cut if needs be .

    Bear in mind that the VM cable is superior to anything else .
