what have you signed up for m8..?... tv? broadband?

I looked at the VIP package for £85 which seemed to be good value, only thing I didn't want was telephone with them as caller ID wasn't available in my area.
After much debating I stuck with just broadband which I've had for around 4 months, its a 10MB service and is by far the best I've had to date. Much better than my previous ADSL connection.

Plus with Virgin, if you just order broadband, split the cable and stick a dbox2 or a dreambox on it and you'll get the full tv package too.

Internet and tv are in the same coax feed. ;)

And the broadband is unlimited, unlike Tiscali and BT.

Do a little reading around m8. We are all here to help you set up your dreambox or dbox ;)

I've actually gone for a Eurovox Max but wondering if I've made the right decision. It seems there's a lack of true widescreen and I've a feeling that's going to bother me a little. Still, I'll see early next week :)

Actually Broadband is now subject to fair usage policy heard that on the radio this weekend in a virgin advert :(

Also they have been setting 10 Mbit users who download a lot to 5 Mbit at peak times. Loads about it but I dont mind I went back to M package at turn of year but I'm still getting 4 Mbit speed :D
