So you can brag to your mates that have Sky or BT broadband that you have faster internet lol

It's probably more to do with the amount of devices people have connected. You don't really realise until you have a new router and start changing passwords on everything :-). To go with the devices, with the increase of 4K streaming via Netflix and Amazon etc, it will also help to keep things running smoothly.

Been moved to VIP I see. No price increase I can see. Replaced old v boxes with 2 TiVo boxes and now have sports in HD

Finally my utilisation issues fixed and getting a rather delightful 220mbps internet

Life can be beautiful at times

If you've just been moved to VIP you should have been offered 2 x V6 boxes - although there would have been a one off 49.95 to do this on top of the 14.95 activation fee.

Listings glitches in the transition from GMT to BST (and vice versa) tend to crop up every year, not just on VM but in many places.
