VirginMedia Takes On Sky & CPW With Improved Bundle Offering

Richard Branson's Virgin Media has unveiled a fresh set of offers aimed at attracting new customers and spearheaded by a hefty £50 off discount.

The discount is only available to new customers who buy at least three services for a minimum of 12 months. The £50 discount - which is made up of an online £20 discount and free installation worth £30 - will be credited on the customers' first bill.

Unfortunately, Virgin Media has yet to successfully integrate its Virgin Mobile within Virgin Media. This means that you cannot, for example, choose a Virgin Mobile package when you are first joining in and available bundles, except for a few, include only broadband, phone and television.

That said, for £47, you can get a 10mbps broadband line, a mobile phone with 100 minutes and 100 texts, a phone line and Virgin Media's large TV offer. That reaches a rather high £564 for the first year. Although it is officially limited to new customers, a quick call to their cancellation section will convince them to upgrade/downgrade you to the level you want.
