Some Virgin Media users are about to be hit by a serious shakeup to their accounts with the telecoms and TV firm switching its popular mobile service over to O2’s SIM plans. Many users may have already noticed the partnership, with the 2 firms joining forces back in 2020.
Nevertheless, that is the primary time that Virgin Mobile contracts have been affected by the merger.
Even though it may sound a bit daunting, Virgin is promising a seamless transition that shouldn’t cause customers any grief.
Actually, to sweeten the switch there’s even a lift with users being offered some useful freebies as a part of the changes.
Which means hundreds of thousands of shoppers will receive unlimited texts and voice calls, and either double the info or unlimited data for a similar amount every month – no customers will see the price of their plan rise consequently of this move.
In addition to that data and call upgrade, Virgin Mobile users will get access to Priority from O2 which supplies them the prospect to grab exclusive extras corresponding to gig tickets.
There’s also the promise of other advantages corresponding to extra roaming destinations and continued inclusive EU roaming, something not offered to all customers by another major mobile network.
Speaking concerning the switch Gareth Turpin, Chief Industrial Officer at Virgin Media O2 said: “That is a serious milestone moment for Virgin Media O2 as our Virgin Mobile customers start moving over to O2 plans, receiving added value and advantages on top.
“Our teams will guide customers through every step of the migration, and we’re laser focused on ensuring this all occurs in essentially the most hassle-free way possible.”
If you happen to are a Virgin Mobile customer you needn’t do anything with things being moved across to O2 robotically in the approaching months.
News of the switch comes as Virgin has also announced a lift for its TV subscribers.
