Re: So so fed up with Virgin Media. Can anyone recommend a decent broadband suppliet

Oh my god, I think I'm going mad with Virgin! I call them up at least twice a week, almost daily have either poor or no broadband, have had numerous engineers visits, have spent literally hours on the phone and simply can't bear it any more!

Cellar wall issues
