UPC REBRANDS ITSELF AS VIRGIN MEDIA IN IRELAND
Today I was invited to an interesting event at the RDS and I got to meet Richard Branson and I also discovered that from next Monday UPC in Ireland will be known as Virgin Media.

I am a UPC subscriber and have been for a very long time so I was pleased to learn that they are rebranding themselves as Virgin and that I will get three months of its unlimited mobile package for free and for a fee of €25 from thereafter. Currently I am with Three but hopefully it should be easy to switch as Virgin Media has built its mobile service using the Three Ireland network.

My understanding is that an unlimited plan will be made available to existing UPC/Virgin Media customers, which will offer infinite data, calls and texts.

The offering will be free for three months to existing phone, broadband and TV customers, and will cost €25 a month after that.

Non-Virgin Media customers will be able to avail of a range of price plans starting at €20 a month, but full details will not be available until Monday's launch. There will be no prepay offering, but post-pay contracts will be short.
