I was paying £37 until I couldn’t resist the 500 Mbps package
Wish they'd let us order 500 without the TV
Yeah the TV is wasted on me, I’d rather had another unlimited SIM and no TV.
I’m ok with paying a premium for a premium product, most othe the time I get closer to
600Mbps than 500Mbps.
We don't watch live TV, don't have a land line and are happy with our phone contracts. I just want stand alone 500Mbps!
How much per month do you pay if you don't mind me asking?
What router for sub £100 would be the best to go with? VM's WiFi seems shocking in my house
Why not buy a decent AP and install it in a central location? The results are likely going to be significantly better than a router in a poor location.
As above, I ran a Ubiquiti Nano-hd with a superhub 3. I installed it on the landing ceiling and the WiFi signal through the house was great.
In idiot terms what the difference between the Nano-hd and the Ac lite?
One is 2-chain with a 3dBi antenna and a maximum theoretical throughput of 833Mbps and the other is a 4-chain wave2 device with a 9dBi antenna and a maximum theoretical throughput of over 2Gbps. The wave2 device supports simultaneous client connections on single or combined chains. The AP-AC-Lite only supports once client at a time.
I'd have gladly stayed if they offered me that, £52.50 a month after the price increase was getting to be a joke.
Cheers Buddy , that explains why the Nano is twice the price.
It’s more than twice the access point. It’s a very, very, capable device indeed. Only the AP-AC-(S)HD is better. For domestic installs have a look at the AP-AC-IW HD which is the Ap-AC-HD Nano in a wall-mountable box with a 4-port gigabit Switch and PoE passthrough on port 1.
got a call back today from virgin, £38 a month for the 350meg, accepted it.
" Virgin Media Connect app , WiFi on the go "
Anyone had any success with the connect app or is still a pile of junk?
Works fine on my iPhone running latest version of iOS
Is it finding loads of hotspots when your out and about and automatically connecting to them?
It automatically connects when a hotspot is within range, you can also use the map with in the app to see if there are any hotspots nearby.
