Shark was jumped with iCloud IMO - so can't entirely blame a simple lack of Jobs
If you live in Norwich, and are on Virgin Media please read the following... Virgin are actually awesome, best UK Broadband by far, BUT they are cheeky bastards.
When I signed up to Virgin at my current property a few years ago, I was told that come May 2015 there would be a free download speed increase from 30Mbit/s to 50Mbit/s.
As it's now mid-June, and no speed increase has happened I thought I'd find out why. I opened a new Support Chat window, and started speaking to Vainshnavi.
I suggested that I was due for a speed increase, he told me that yes I was. I asked why I'd not had it, he paused and told me it wasn't ready yet, so they couldn't offer me it right now.
Vain told me to go to this page and enter my postcode: www.virginmedia.com/speedupgrade
On entering my postcode I was told my speed upgrade was ready and I would be contacted soon to arrange the upgrade.
I told Vain that the page was telling me contrary to his advice, that the speed upgrade was ready. I also told him that if I wanted I could pay an extra £5 to receive a 100Mbit/s connection, so the speed IS technically possible. I made sure he knew that what they were telling me was massively misleading and that it's against advertising standards.
Vain paused for 2 mins, then came back saying:
"David, I understand your concern. I will upgrade your broadband from 30mb to 50mb free of cost. Is that ok for you?"
I said "Yes, that is ok".
I was told the upgrade would take up to 2 hours, but before I could even say goodbye to my support agent, my connection reset and the speed now peaks at 52Mbit/s.
If you have 30Mbit/s Virgin Broadband and live in Norwich, run the above availability check, and if you don't already have 50Mbit/s (speedtest.net will tell you what you have) contact support and tell them they need to give it to you right away. They WILL do it, so don't take no for an answer, they already offer connections 3 times faster than this.
