  • Virgin Media sucks balls
  • CurvyGirl is unwell
  • Kittens and pigeons don't mix.


In their infinite wisdom, Virgin have not fixed a fault present at my apartment for nearly 3 fewking weeks. I'm having to relay on someones BT hotspot and no Netflix and Chill 

Brought in not one, but two dead pigeons in a morning over the weekend. They've got different hunting strategies. The older is a creeping Carpet of Doom whilst the younger one is a leaper. They've also bought a frog in for dinner, which I had to box and take to the nearby river.

It's either VM or OpenReach, both piss poor customer service.

My "proper" home is a BT (OpenReach) customer and we've never had a problem. Worst outage was 48 hours and that was a problem on our property which the engineer looked the other way on. Gone up to over 30MBps in my village with Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) which while not up to cable speed will do nicely thanks.

Utility Whorehouse - who sub from Openretch. They seem OK - or at least I haven't had problems. No issues giving me a fixed IP.

Also I get 80Mb/s on FTTC (20 up).
