Virgin Broadband - down for Xmas :(


Recommended Posts


If a neighbours wifi is unprotected all you have to do is connect to it from the list on your computer/device - it's not legal still I believe but you can do it that way

I do work from home and intend to take them to the cleaners.

I do empathise that the snow we've had must play havoc with the underground cabling and it must be awful for the guys (usually chaps) that have to be out in all weathers at junction boxes and playing about under the pavement.

What really upsets me though is the denial (from others ..... those that are presumably cosy in their offices) and the fact that we have to ask for recompense.

I suggested a courtesy mobile or courtesy SIM card for my own (?15 for 300mins) .... this IS after all Xmas and NY and they must know a lot of my calls are international anyway..... the response made me wonder whether someone didn't know what day it was.

I had to do a real number in their shop (given that no line means not even access to an operator or emergency services).
