Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Virgin.net has cut the cost of its broadband starter kit by £5.

The kit -which includes a Thomson SpeedTouch USB ADSL modem, two micro-filters and software - now costs £79.99.

However, punters will still have to pay an additional £39 for the service to be activated.

AOL and Freeserve, on the other hand, charge around £85 for their starter kits and that includes the line activation cost.

So, is Virgin.net going to cut the cost of its activation fee, especially since BT Wholesale has just announced that it is to halve installation costs for a limited time in the new year?

Dunno, a spokeswoman for Virgin.net wouldn't say - well, not officially anyhow.

Until they do decide to come clean, it seems the Virgin.net offer is actually more expensive than its rivals. ®
