So yet another reason to consider my Virgin subscription
Virgin, not satisfied with trying to insert their Phorm with out even the decency to grease me up with KY first are up to new tricks?
Now it seem they don't like Net Neutrality!!! FFS
What don't they get, BROADBAND is a utility, Virgin are a Utility provider, they get to set a pricing model like other Utility providers do either by meter, prepay or flat rate. What they DON'T get to decide is what they will provide depending on who on the back end pays for it. Pipe open or pipe closed, simple! Not pipe open for for this but closed for that or pipe wider for this but narrower for that.
On or Off that's how broadband should work, you pay for a given pipe width and that's what you should get with no restrictions and the only thing Virgin should have a say in its the pricing model, just like a utility company.
My water costs X flat rate or Y per unit on a meter, thats fair, them telling me which brand of shower i can use with my water isn't. Same goes for electricity, gas and BROADBAND.
For a company in tonnes of debt, Virgin do seem to love the idea of upsetting their customers and forcing them to rivals. What Virgin doesn't realise is that when we leave on broadband we also leave on TV, phone and mobile to and when we leave on mobile we often take our family to which means they leave on TV and broadband too.
I tell the one more piece of crap like this and Virgin will be loosing a few package customers as i will be off!
