The new XL service will cost just £18.50 per month, down from the previous price of £20 when taken with a Virgin Media home phone. The new service offers unlimited downloads and with speeds cranked up to 30Mb, is expected to give customers faster average speeds than BT Infinity whether it's catching up on the latest TV shows, or downloading games and music.
