I have not really had any major complaints.
Overall the BB has always been very good (23+ years now).

I've had failures, but they have been rare, and fixed within 24 hours.
I think Nottingham is a good VM area, originally built well by Diamond Cable.

CS has generally been good, there have been odd issues.
Usually with offshore support, not always, but far too often.

For the first time ever, I now have a viable alternative [via fttp] so we'll see how things go.
I'm no longer in contract with VM, but do have a discount until mid 2023, so no rush to change yet.

Re: Latest black Friday offer

Good luck with whatever you decide to do, I still have no options for hyper speed BB. In 18 months time I probably will.
If you do take an alternative, I would be interested to hear your views once youve been with them for a few months, but you will probably have forgotten all about us by then.

Re: Latest black Friday offer

I already have FTTP as a back-up (just 150M atm).

My biggest gripe is the IP changes far too often.
I know VM is technically dynamic, but it stays the same for years normally.
If I decide to switch, I'll have to look at the business offering, as thats a fixed IP.

Another consideration (any why I'm in no hurry atm) is that if I left VM, we would lose our two ntlworld.com emails.
Thats not a big issue for me, I dont use mine much, but my wife uses hers, so it will mean a lot of updates to her online accounts.

Re: Latest black Friday offer

No doubt VM will welcome in the New Year with another massive price rise. Its traditional after all.... A 'free' broadband speed upgrade is always a clue to what's shortly coming...
Maybe they'll call it a 'Blue Monday' offer/demand? Less popular than Black Friday but it may catch on....

Hmm needs registration, seems a bit overkill for a price tracker, why everyone wants you to register these days ,cant people provide something for nothing anymore?

The two bits in bold conflict with each other.

Also it seems to just monitor over time rather than checking historical data? So I have to manually add products ahead of time?

"Hi there!

Re: Latest black Friday offer

You seem to be confused. If you want them to track something for you then you need to register so they can send you details of price changes.
I’d you go to data and search for what you want you can see historical price details without registering.

There is a free version of camelcamelcamel I just set up an email account which forwards the ccc emails to my main account. I use Keepa to see a chart of price changes on items I am thinking of buying anywhere.

Glad you're sorted. Don't fuss if it occaisionally goes missing, it always comes back for me within a couple of days not that it happens a lot nowadays and it could just have been my old laptop getting in on the 'annoy Jo' routine.
