Does that mean that either 2mb customers will now pay the price 10mb customrs do, or that customers paying for 10mb will get a reducation to what was the 2mb speed, I wonder?
I've recently cut a retentions deal with VM (on 10mb), however, with the recent price cuts already seen on 10mb, it is now not looking as good as it was just a month ago!
Still, better than a kick in the face for those currently on 2mb!

Hooray! No more 2meg for me!
edit: I hope the price doesn't go up. We are on a deal so I suppose it won't...but who knows?

I'm gonna give them a call tonight i think, strike a deal myself

I think they're just upgrading
2mb users > 10mb
10mb users > 20mb
20mb users > 50mb
Same price etc.

I hope so

Just read a couple of articles, customers signed up to 10mb already will pay more than those of us who are upgraded
Edit: Guardian article

Not that you can use 10mbit (even if it runs that fast) you either hit the traffic shaping caps or your local UBR melts under the extra load.

I get my 10mbit 24/7 unless I hit the magic cap. No local contention issues, if only the ondemand service was as reliable.
