Virgin Media saving

Options
I signed up for Ultimate Oomph at £89 a month which was about to increase to £147.50 a month.  A phone call to the retentions team and I'm now on Ultimate Volt at £99 a month.  That's billed as £25 a month to O2 and £74 to Virgin Media.  Not that I'll use the landline or the SIM.  So a net saving of £48.50 a month or £873 over 18 months.  I also got a speed upgrade to 1.1Gbit Internet, not that I needed it.

    Or an increase of £10 a month (11%) from what you pay now.. depending which way you look at it 😀 no one should ever pay the increased price once deal ends

    So in other words you're a fan of pouring money down the drain, having a internet speed you won't even make the most of, and a phone package you've just said you won't even use.

    And this is money-saving how exactly?  Yes you might have "saved" £48 a month but you're paying for stuff you aren't even going to use.
