£9 per month for 4GB – Virgin SIM only deal

You know EE right? They’ve got a strong network and lots of coverage, yeah? Well, Virgin Mobile use their masts for their phone network. Right now they have a really great offer on, and it’s just £9 for 4G data on a 12 month SIM-only plan. You’ve got …

Virgin Media customers experiencing DNS and routing issues

Virgin Media are having problems with their data / broadband network for some home internet customers today. No, it’s not the long-running on-demand and catch-up issues this time. Oh no. It appears that their DNS servers have gone a bit Pete Tong and sites like eBay, Netflix and …

Cutting the cord. Trying to kill off my landline.

Now, I’ll admit, I’m a penny pincher at times. If there’s a cheaper way of doing something, even if it’s a bit geeky, I’ll give it a go. Stick with me on this one, because it involves something that Virgin have just announced which I think is a …

Virgin Media just announced something you should all buy

A few days ago I was logging into my Virgin Media account. However, I got a bit distracted by an advert and ended up on the Virgin Business website instead. Why was I distracted? Well, I’ll show you… Yes. £30 a month for an internet connection which goes …

Making the switch to Virgin Media. A geeky broadband story.

The internet, in our modern world, has become essential. It’s no longer a “nice to have” thing so that you can look things up. Now we’re watching live IPTV, downloading movies, conducting video calls and working from home. After water, gas and electric we’re fully expecting the modern …

First look – The EBox T8 V Streaming TV Box – Version 5

We’ve received another Android TV box to test today so I thought I’d give you a quick overview as it’s an improved version of an already very popular box. This is from EntertainmentBox – it’s the EBox T8 V and is powered by an Amlogic S912 64bit octa-core …

Virgin Media goes 4G. Adds free WhatsApp and rollover data

If you’ve got Virgin cabled up to your house then it’s in your own interests to look at their mobile deals too. They have better deals for Virgin customers, but you can also take a look at their offerings if you’re not a customer. Better still, today they’ve …

New Virgin Media TiVo box teased

Virgin Media, the UK cable TV/phone/broadband provider, has just teased us with a new TiVo powered set top box which will be made available to its cable TV customers later this year. Current details of the Virgin Media TiVo V6 are scarce, but we do have a pretty …

Virgin add entertainment to your train journeys

A journey for me to London usually falls into two categories. I either take a “cheap” train which takes a couple of hours, stops at places I’ve never heard of and has no on-board “booster” so the signal on your phone is totally pants. If, however, I pay …

Virgin Media – Data usage gets throttled

Would you class more than 3.5GB of monthly data as “excessive”? Well, Virgin Media doesn’t seem to think that. At least not when selling their SIM-only packages. As an example, you can buy a 4GB plan for £15 per month or an 8GB plan for £23 per month. …

SmartCall shuts down due to competition

We really liked SmartCall from Virgin Media. It basically let you hop onto any WiFi hotspot and you could use your mobile as if you were on your landline at home. This was especially good if you were abroad, and you could pick up your mobile in a …

Three joins free WiFi on the Tube

Back in 2011 TFL announced plans to put Virgin Media WiFi hotspots in a selection of London Underground stations for the 2012 London Olympics. This was then rolled out to the rest of the network, allowing everyone to use them for a while before then restricting it based on …

Moto G 16GB version for £99 ?

Another one for Virgin Media customers this, and we know already that the Moto G is cheap, but the 16GB version hasn’t been available for less than £100 until now. If you’re a customer you can get the 16GB Moto G for £99.99 which includes a £10 TopUp. …

Ovivo goes pop. Where should you go now?

If you don’t like paying much money then Ovivo were ideal. Some of their plans cost absolutely nothing per month, but just recently Ovivo unexpectedly went pop and their customers were left with no service instantly. So what now? Well, we’ve put some options together for you. They’re …

Virgin Atlantic to check you in via Google Glass

Flying with Virgin Atlantic, especially in Upper Class, is the height of bling. For me, I’ll be trying hard to imagine I’m in an Upper Class seat as I jam my backside into an EasyJet bench next week. However, if you’ve got slightly more than £30 for a …

TV Anywhere from Virgin, now for Android

Just recently Sky added more channels to their Sky Go service. It brought the total amount of “watch anywhere” channels to 57, but Virgin have today blown them out of the water by launching their TV Anywhere app for Android devices which gives access to 67 channels across …
