The switch was a lot simpler than expected, it was a simple case of switching the routers and plugs, which the engineer did easily. The service so far has been good, consistent speeds throughout the last month or two. I'm very happy with the change.

Good service took a couple of weeks for it to kick in but since then it's been good. The price I'm paying is an offer at the moment - hopefully Virgin won't raise the price too much after the first year.

The engineer didn't bury the cable on first visit so I had to have them back out. The service is good though and much faster than a phone line. It does go down now and then but never for very long.

WiFi connection in a small flat is quite poor. Had to purchase a WiFi booster separately to improve the signal within the property. Have been considering looking for other providers.

Switch was super easy to sort and install; the app was really useful for instillation and questions I had. The connection is good and it seems to be the best deal for speed and money. Happy with our choice and wouldn’t look anywhere else!

Installation within a week, no glitches with speed or signal. Engineer explained everything at visit which didn't take him long - very efficient and polite, good value for money. Glad I swapped to Virgin - should have done it sooner.

Installation easy and service fine so far. Like all broadband I feel it is overpriced, but it's good for the money compared to others. So far so good.
