Virgin Media news

Virgin Media has announced that its free calls app and cloud storage facility are to end next month.

According to the company, more of its customers are choosing to use alternative apps and services. As a result, it has decided to scrap Virgin Media Cloud, Webspace and SmartCall on April 28th.

Virgin Media has promised Webspace users "something even better", as it has teamed up with GoDaddy to bring customers 12 months' free hosting services, a free website builder, domain name and professional email.

This, it said, means they can save £59.88 throughout the year, as well as enjoy extras such as 1GB of storage.

Customers have been notified that they will need to save any content from their website before April 28th if they wish to avoid losing anything.

Virgin Media has also suggested people save any family photos, videos and documents to a local device to ensure content stored on its cloud service is not lost. 

Consumers were encouraged to use Dropbox to back up their content again, as it offers 2GB of storage and works on all devices.

Virgin Media added that when SmartCall closes at the end of April, customers will still be able to enjoy minutes with their Virgin Media home phone, including unlimited landline calls and free calls to its Directory Enquiries service, 0870 numbers and Virgin Mobile phones.
