Commenting on the news that Virgin Media is to increase its prices by up to £48 per year, Dani Warner, broadband expert at uSwitch.com, says:
“Price rises do happen, but Virgin Media customers who face paying up to £48 more each year shouldn’t feel too alarmed because their rights are well established.
“Anyone unhappy with these changes has 30 days from when they’re officially notified of the new prices to use their ‘get out of jail free’ card and leave their contract penalty-free. So customers should keep an eye on any communication from Virgin Media over the next few days.
“There is good news for those who do want to leave Virgin: the best deals are generally available to new customers.”
