    Sooo, I've been paying 40 for my Virgin 50mbps + Calls Broadband package.

    Virgin have had ongoing, superior offers with prices equal to or less than my package for months, such as 100mbps + Calls for 33.

    Am I owed any kind of reimbursement for the months where I've been ripped off?

    No, it's up to you to check and renegotiate.

    Absolutely not because you've not been ripped off and it's not a scam (the other usual cry).

    You could use their current offers as leverage however to move on to a better deal with a new contract.

    I usually buy loaves of bread from my local shop for 1.50, imagine my disgust when I went in today and they were on sale for 1.

  • Ah these care free days of watching #ENG score 5 goals in the first half of a World Cup match. It reminds me of... Never.
