VIP 100...

I've just signed up to a Very Important Package (VIP) bundle from Virgin Media. The one I've gone for is the VIP 100.

I will get all the premium TV channels, movies and sport (many in HD) that I get on my existing bundle PLUS a new phone line with free weekend and evening calls and a doubling of my current broadband from 50MB to 100MB.

And the change in cost? Well, it's free to install and £4 a month cheaper than I currently pay. Result!

This more or less how the call I got today went:

"Hello sir. Virgin Media here"
"Er, hello"
"We're calling today to offer you the chance to join our Very Important Package (VIP) scheme from Virgin Media."
"Okaaaay. So what would I get and how much is it?"
"Let me check for you... OK, if we move you onto the VIP 100 you will get all the premium TV channels, movies and sport that you currently get on your existing bundle PLUS a new phone line with free weekend and evening calls and a doubling of your current broadband from 50MB to 100MB."
"And how much will that set me back?"
"Just checking for you now sir... That can't be right, let me check again...Well, it seems it's free to install at the moment, sir, and it also looks like it'll cost you £4 a month less than you currently pay."
"OK then! So let be get this straight - you'll be giving me more services for less money"
"Looks that way, sir. My supervisor's going to kill me"
Result!
