BSkyB punches Virgin Media in ads watchdog fist fight


I have a ADSL connection with Virgin Media which they market as "unlimited"

Is this not what Virgin's complaint about BT was ?

On a side note. I have been paying 27.99 per month for the last 8 months, even though I have a Virgin phone line. It appears it should be 15.99 per month.

But at the same time saying there is nothing wrong with the hardware, it is just a software fault, (a software fault unrelated to the problem)
