      This is going to go on and on and on..... as it is clear that they are never going to reach an agrement without either side seen to be backing down.

      Just a weak attempt at humour trying to use the play on words of cake and sponge.

      That story was up on the BBC I believe although it said the figure was 10 million but Virgin still said no:

      Re: Sky Vs VM - the battle continues

      Indeed it is getting fierce

      VM are now offering 20MB cable with a phoneline and 24/7 unlimited calls for 30.95 a month

      for customer life...

      Im seriously thinking about ditching BT and sky talk in favour of this.. as i pay 37 for internet alone

      but what contract will you be tied in for (especially when sky undercut them again!).

      Re: Sky Vs VM - the battle continues

      same 12 month contract as sky i assume .. the talk 24 runs out after a year but even 20MB for 30 is very good. not as good as LLU but good
