We did here in the sticks, too. Only we didn't get access to the service for several years, it was only for people in larger conurbations.

To be accurate there are no Post Office branches in villages. Sub-Post Offices are a franchise operation, almost always operated in conjunction with a retail shop. They are only closed when the franchisee gives them up or breaks the rules, or the PO decides there are too many in a particular area, these days caused by reduced demand due to societal changes - far less use of cash, far more online services (VED, NS, courier services etc etc).

Back to the original purpose of this thread. It appears that Brexit does have the support of both mainstream religion and a major figure in motorsport history.

Mentioning that I have for years had a monthly letter from Virgin suggesting I ask them to connect to the fibre that runs in the street. They never seem to give up. At one point a team turned up to do the installation as someone, no idea who, had apparently "ordered" it unknown to me.

I don't recall seeing the regular mail for a couple of months. I wonder if they finally gave up?

Didn't think they ever gave up - we've been with them since they were Cable and Wireless, then NTL, then Virgin, but I still get regular emails from them trying to get me to have their mobile service too......


Having said that last month our (very rarely used) Virgin landline was out of order for a few days - got an automatic credit of £24 (£8/day after 48 hours, I think) on this months bill - which I found acceptable First fault of any duration I can remember in years.

I've been with Virgin Media for 10 years since I returned from Spain, and am, on the whole, pretty happy with them. They were content to credit me for the few months that their broadband was oversubscribed in my area causing the speed to be considerably throttled back.

They gave up trying to flog me extra services, possibly because - and this does annoy me - every time that they try to put up their price, and that can sometimes be every 6 months, I call them up to say that I don't want to pay any extra. And so, every year, they give me a Loyalty Discount that's getting bigger and bigger as time goes by.

Why wouldn't you? It's good stuff, fibre b/b.

Sounds like compulsory soon, too. Probably with a big smart TV that occupies one wall and can see as well as transmit.

Last time they put the price up from £39 to £54 in one hit I told them I was going elsewhere, they offered me a contract for £36 PM but I declined and get a termination date, Three days later they phoned and I got it down to £30PM.

Licence renewal forms are out, and looks like I can renew on line for a change. No Med or ECG if I’m quick!

Well, I have no interest in the TV content and management seems to be quite happy with Freeview.

BT Internet seems to provide as much speed as I need and does so quite reliably in the main with unlimited data.

In the main comms and download speeds are constrained by the remote supplier server and most of them seem to be working at lower speeds than BT's copper can deliver. That suggests the Virgin, et al, would have the same problem except, perhaps, for their own content. And that content does not interest me.

So I can't see any point to considering a change at the moment.
