    looking at the networks and broadband forum it seems as if they struggle to provide a decent standard baroadband package, never mind a mobile one!

    Two different beasties - well, actually more than two; Virgin's ADSL service is, by all accounts, toss. That said, I'm on their cable service, which touch wood has been fine. Neither of these, of course, have anything to do with their business as an MVNO. Seems to me that the key issue will be whose network they're reselling. I believe they still effectively resell T-Mobile's network for voice, so I assume they'll be following the same line with HSDPA/HSUPA/3G. If so, coverage should be OK, as should quality.

    £15 for 3gb then £15 for an additional 1gb if you go over. Ruddy hell that is an expensive mistake if you download a little bit too much one month.

    Does it matter who is reselling? Anything to do with VM ends up as cheap tat for high price (it looks like good value at first, but it never is)
