      your not wrong! i cancelled today because of this - the decision to pump the £447 a year into my motorhome and also because it costs too much

      they tried to get me to stay with them with a bundle i told them not unless they could match the sky offer - while i am on it now im expecting it to be cut off at any point soon

      their website still advertises it as an acceptable usage policy (from Feb 07)and not restricted dl limits in peak time:

      No download limits
      Unlike some of our competitors, you get unlimited° downloads as a basic right so you can load up on music, films...whatever you're into.

      ° Virgin Media Acceptable Use Policy
