    As some of you know I work for Virgin they are currently doing this deal if anyone is interested let me know and I'll sign you up I dont get comission or anything. If your interested give me your name/address/contact tel no/emaily addy it's only available through VM staff refferals so no point in phoning up yourself for it.

    deal below

    So what’s the deal?
    For just £23.99 a month plus a one-off connection and set-up fee of £35, your mates can enjoy everything that our Virgin Media National service offers, with the added bonus of saving a few quid! In fact compared to our standard customer prices your mates will save between £11 and £15 a month or £132 and £155 a year on their broadband package (depending on whether the offer is taken in a LLU or non LLU area).

    Here’s exactly what your mates could get as part of this fab deal…


    Broadband L (40GB usage limit)
    The fastest broadband we can give you, up to 20Mb
    Talk Unlimited
    Talk International & Talk Mobile
    Virgin Phone line rental (no need for a BT line)!
    The package also comes with these great extras too:

    A free wireless router for all new customers
    Free PCguard Total security
    10GB online storage to backup your stuff
    50 free photo prints every month

    And all for just £23.99 a month! But remember, this Mates Rates offer is available until 31 March 2010
     
  2. sounds good mate, I'm already a customer, do I qualify?

    Also, what would the extra cost be to add XL TV package?

    Cheers
     
  3. Ditto.

    And have they sorted out the problem with PC Guard yet? ntl's NetGuard was good, but I had to remove PC Guard when it was forced on me because it prevented the computer from working. Also, is PC Guard a modded Kaspersky? Wondering, because I don't remember ever installing Kaspersky and I've got shreds of it all over the place.

  12. Is this going to stay at £33.50, or is it a short term offer that is going to creep up bit by bit as Sky (who I have just binned) have been doing for years?
     
  13. No idea mate but £33 quid is good. if you dont work for virgin media.
