There goes another big chunk of jobs
Ouch. I guess all the big companies are cutting jobs now... it must be the new thing.
Oh bugger! Thing is Virgin has a much nicer public image than Sky and more content than Freeview, we're likely to go with them when me and the girlfriend get a place together.
Hope the service doesn't falter and hope those 2,200 get jobs swiftly.
I wouldn't suggest it, I've found Virgin to be bandwidth nit pickers, if you so happen to go over 350mb downloads a week, you get limited to 512k, then over another limit (that I haven't worked out), you get put to just over dial up speeds. Virgin are horrific for customer service too, very rude and obnoxious.
You'd be insanely f***ed then if you played World of WarCraft.
They're not nitpicking, and the extent of "capping" isn't down to chance. Their throttling policy has been around for quite a while and is documented.
I didn't say the capping was down to chance I'm just saying their bandwidth policy isn't exactly great and that the connection isn't reliable.
I know that it's been that way a while, we've been with them a while... we're waiting to jump ship once the contracts up...
Hopefully BT will be more reliable.
EDIT: I didn't know they finally put up the actual amounts you need to download before you get capped, that's handy.
A few nights of xbox live and general internet browsing is easily enough to push it over...
Then I'll stick to Freeview and one of them godly awesome lesser-known ISPs who are friendly to pirates (not that I'm a pirate, but I do a lot of iPlayer and online gaming).
iPlayer through the Virgin TV box is great. It's much better quality than on the computer and doesn't hammer your bandwidth allowance.
I love how cutting jobs to ensure future earnings basically just means the remaining employees workload just doubled without a raise.
THE AMERICAN WAY
