Virgin offers unlimited action for a fiver

Textual feeling

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Sorry folks, but this story is about Virgin Media, which is now offering a Sim-only deal with unlimited texts, unlimited Virgin-to-Virgin calls and 100 minutes of calls to other networks for just £5 a month.

At that price, though, the 30-day rolling contract is only open to existing Virgin customers, ie. anyone who already uses its landline, broadband or TV services.

Everyone else can grab the deal for a tenner, minus the benefit of free Virgin-to-Virgin calls, of course.

Unlimited texts are subject to a fair use policy of 3000 per month, but who has the finger strength for that much typing?

Textaholics who'd like to sign up to this inexpensive Virgin Media Sim-only contract, will have to do so by the end of March. ®
