Options if on Virgin cable,
1: go Internet only & get Freeview + .
2: get basic tv & internet only.
If you need a landline go with Vonage for about £5.99 a month with all landline calls included, its a rolling monthly contract & you do not pay line rental to anyone, caller id, email notifications of messages received (read message or listen to it), anonymous call block are also included in the monthly charge.
interesting. worth looking into.
not keen on the tethering as the mrs will need to know how to do that - which is a no go area, trust me.
would be better if we can at least keep the wifi, its a ballache that we have to keep the landline - we dont even have a phone connected to ours, so we'd only really end up spending about £10 less a month 9coupled with boradband fees). which i know is £120 saving per year, but ideally, i'd like to be just paying for internet (£10-£15/month) with no fagging line rental bullshit.
just did a Uswitch check. even with Virgin media offer of £4 for 8 months then £14.50 PLUS line rental of £14.99 per month, we'd still be paying £22 per month. why is it so much more complicated to get a better deal with broadband than it is with a mobile phone? i've gone from a £22.50 per month 2 year moibile contract to paying £10 a month - no contract with better usage limits.
if it wasnt for the "line rental" which Virgin dont even use to supply broadband, then i'd be happy enough with that offer.
Talk Talk and PLus NEt seem to offer something that hits the £17 mark.....but then there's 'installation fees' 'Broadband startup fees blah blah blah...' it almost turns into a Ryan Air type affair.
