    Sky or Virgin Deals

    Colemans thrad on getting rid of sky prompted me to remeber that I've been tasked with finding the best deal out there for my dad.

    We currently have BT Vision, it's all free, as he is a BT Employee, as is the internet, but even given that it's free. He want's to chuck it all in the bin and go buy a different service. Mainly because the performance and general working of BT Vision is just shocking.

    So, Sky or Virgin, needs to have ESPN, Sky Sports, and quite possibly the new BT Sports channels too, other than that anything. Budget is absolutely NO MORE THAN 50 per month all in. Anyone know of any deals, offers etc???

    Regardless of throttle ild take VM's cable line over any emerging company for now at least. Their routers like every ISP branded router I have had are ****, I turn it into modem mode then use my own. (Had same issue with **** WiFi output from it).

    think I only get throttled if I download 7GB over peak times, If I have a huge download of say 80GB I just do it overnight anyhow.

    Noticed they been bought out by LGI so looking to possibly go elsewhere if can find anything as reliable/cheap.

    If it can't travel 12ft without being interupted then you have a serious flaw, as even if I turned all my equipment off, anybody with neighbours is going to get interference they can't control.


    They gave up, replaced my router (no
    Problems now) and I pay 10 a month for a year
    Do you have the 'Super' Hub

    I say 'Super' because its shocking I have mine set up to an external router now because it was so bad

    Virgin throttle a lot I think, pretty sure BT don't. Sky don't either.

    Yup, hence my other thread lol. You'd only save for a few months by purchasing a deal tbh. How much would virgin cost for the same?

    Check with Virgin usually the first 6 months are half price or less for new customers, also ring directly they're much better on the phone than online

    Doubt it with sky. Phone, broadband (unlimited) and basic tv is in the 40 region. Add sports for 16, plus ESPN and BT sports and you'll sail over the 50 mark.
