    Interesting...was this a free upgrade? Is this something Virgin are rolling out across the UK now? I upgraded my 2MB connection to 10MB a few months back >.>

    They announced a while back that all 2Mb users would be bumped up to 10Mb...and I pay the same as I did for 2Mb!

    Have you registered on the website?

    They have not been telling customers to do this AFAIK but the website said that by registering I could be one of the first to get the upgrade...I don't know if it made any difference but our area was originally listed as being done in July/August.

    How annoying. Wonder if I can get 10MB for the 2MB price I used to pay if I kick up a fuss.

    It's worth a go...last time I spoke to them I said I was thinking of leaving Virgin and they dropped the price on the spot!

    It's worth noting that although the "new" 10mb customers coming from the 2mb upgrade package (M) are paying less than existing 10mb customers from the L package, the M package customers get less bandwidth allowances before STM kicks in.

    Still, you're basically getting the same speed as L customers most of the time and if you're not bandwidth greedy, for a few pound less each month.
