Well, it got you to open the thread, didn't it !?!  Big grin


Dear, dear AOL

It is time to finally say goodbye, after 12 years. You've promised me highspeed for years, but delivered nothing more than empty promises. You have a completely useless level 1 call centre where people don't understand me. You kick me off, but always tell me "We are unable to determine the problem." Alas, the camel's back was broken by the final straw when I was unable to get online for 2 whole days; no apology, no refund, nothing.  no 

 redflag  redflag 

You have let me down too many times, old friend, and so I must let you go.  wave 

You, on the other hand, you're so young and refreshing, you have people at the end of the phone who actually sound like they're enjoying their job and, oh my goodness, your fast. More than that, you're my Virgin.  thumbsup 




So I drive a 4x4. So what?! Tax the a$$ off me for it...oh, you already have... :-(

Nope, not me. I'm not falling for that.

I've had Telewest/Virgin broadband for about six years now and I have to say it's been pretty good.

I'm glad to hear that you're happy in your new relationship; may you have many prosperous years ahead!

Unfortunately, I gave the boot to Virgin - well, NTL at the time - after they decided to give away, sorry, 'reassign', my telephone number without asking me.

I hope it all goes well for you; my experiences with NTL/Virgin were rather stressful to say the least.
I had service interruptions on a daily basis, every evening it would overload and trip out as the US arrived home and started surfing the net.
Virgins answer - reboot your modem.
When one of their leads broke - answer they suggested that I went to a store and bought a replacement
Any repairs took 3 days minimum.

I replaced them with BT, and have hardly had a loss of service in two years, compared to daily with Virgin.

Best of luck

.....but your speed test shows that your "virgin" is "wide-open" while the good'ol AOL was much much tighter  Big grin



Life only makes sense when you look at it backwards.

As a business customer, we have tried everyone, and noone gets near to the reliability of BT. So I would rather pay more for a well worn service instead of a fresh "Virgin" as you say  Wink

My "Virgin" proved to be more like a worn out old slapper, just as yours seemed to have been. BT might seem a bit boring but at least they are generally reliable.

Well, 4 days in, and all is going well; even got a courtesy call this afternoon to see if I was happy with everything.

The biggest headache is unravelling and dumping all the AOL crap.  Confused

Moved since my last test. Funny that the fastest ATT DSL is still slower than the slowest Charter Cable.
