Virgin Media Unveil Final Big Bundles of Quad Play Broadband and Mobile

Thursday, May 29th, 2014 (11:21 am) - Score 1,011

As expected UK cable operator Virgin Media, which last month launched its new quad-play ‘Big Kahuna’ and ‘Big Bang’ broadband, phone and TV bundles with a mobile service (here), has today unveiled the details and prices for its full range of revamped packages including ‘Big Connection’, ‘Big Easy’ and ‘Big Daddy’.

As before customers can now pay an extra £5 or £8 per month for a SIM Only Mobile Tariff (SIMO) that adds unlimited UK minutes (calls) and texts to any of the bundles listed below (NOTE: the £5 option also gives you 250MB of mobile broadband data and the £8 option includes 1000MB). In addition, there’s an £18 per month SIMO offer that adds “unlimited data“.

The following prices generally reflect services with an 18 month contract that are paid by Direct Debit, with paperless billing, and excluding line rental of £15.99 a month. As usual it’s best to check Virgin Media’s website for the full package details and options.

    This whole thing of quoting prices without line rental included when it’s a required part of the deal has to stop.

    It’s absolutely absurd selling a product for £15.50/month when that’s less than half the actual cost due to line rental.

    Using line rental increases to subsidise lower headline prices of other products is a pretty unsavoury thing to do as well, sadly all been given a green light by the ASA.

      Agreed BT, Virgin, Talk Talk and others who all quote prices for bundles and then somewhere in smaller print state “requires line rental at…” should be stopped.

      Another of those things that should of never been allowed in the first place.

      You would need a properly working telecoms regulator, something which doesn’t exist in the UK.

    3. A properly working ASA would be enough rather than the muppets we have 🙂

      Aren’t Virgin stopping to the lowest common denominator here – because there was no action taken on this until maybe last year, the likes of PlusNet have been advertising their unlimited broadband or whatever it is for about three quid a month – it looks terribly cheap when you take the line rental aspect out.

      To take your point – you don’t need the landline for cable anyway. But, the way the marketing has gone, has forced VM down this path so it can advertise on the same terms as the others.

      I find it remarkable that there’s still money to be made in residential landline calling, we haven’t even had a landline in about six years – but, it must be worthwhile for the providers.

      “I find it remarkable that there’s still money to be made in residential landline calling….”

      There isn’t but theres plenty made from the line rental charge, im a big spender if i have £3 worth of actual calls a month on my landline. Its cheaper per minute daytimes to use my mobile.
