Also on 3 months free. Was not given as a $180 credit. I get a $60 credit each bill.

This is my theory as well that Virgin modems are not exactly the same as Bell modems. I used to have both Home Hub 2000 and HH 3000 and both had worked really good. If I have to I will use router that I already have so no big deal for me to put Steve in bridge mode. I will try to talk technician into installing Valerie but I have doubts it will be possible as Virgin rep told me that they don’t install Valerie in FTTN homes.
Will find out in a few days.

Go with hub1000 if you want bridge mode. I tried many times on hub2000 and no go. I saw a post about hub1000 Bridge mode in RFD before, only a few easy steps.

I wasn't given the option to keep both, but they were able to convert me.. (i've only been with virgin for less than a month thus far)
Lucky.
I called before I knew about this promo as I was going to switch to Cannets $35/month (30+5 modem rental) and asked if they could match. They said of you mean the 50$ off deal... So I asked politely for that. Told me new customers only.

Called back a week later and politely asked for it after seeing some people in this thread get it. New customers only. Got a manager.. Same thing. They really don't want to give me it and lie saying no existing customers ever got it.

Thought they were supposed to treat me "really good" like there call center answering voice claims..

Maybe ill try bell to see if they'll match.. Else yea Virgin was behavior really foolish to spend probably $100+ on install fees (They had to come twice, 2nd time with there best senior technician as my house was ancient and required a full complicated install), and give me free service 3 months and never get a dime out of me. I'm on month 2, a week in, though tried as early as just after my first bill.

That is too bad. I guess I will test Steve’s wifi before technician leaves. If there is no connectivity to my tv in the basement then I just might ask technician to take the hardware back with him unless he installs Valerie. I have no problem going with another provider as well if I have to.

I am not sure if it can be done. Virgin tech told me on the phone that it is not possible to install Valerie with FTTN connection because Valerie is not set up to work with FTTN. The more I talk to Virgin the more it sounds like talking to Bell. You can never get straight answer. So far no one has verified on this forum that they have had Valerie installed with FTTN connection.
