    VirginMedia am I being ripped off? 16th Oct 16 at 4:44 PM
    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
