Virgin Media "up to 100 Meg" Broadband from Dec 2010

Recommended Posts

Damn, not having super fast broadband just kills me.

Anyway, got my new router earlier (so jumped from 20mb to 30mb connection) than expected and here is the differece:

Woohoo internet is BACK!

That's great Cobs, also, interesting to see your speed test registered faster speeds than you are actually paying for, which is exactly what the industry watchdog found in their recent tests. Virgin cable is wiping the floor with the other ISPs at the moment.

Yup, which is one of the problems I seem to be having translating that to my inlaws... (even explaining this to O2 customer services took a while and she even questioned why I would need more :wacko: )

They have an ADSL connection that will allow up to 20mb's... so this is what they think they are getting. However, a quick speedtest later and it shows they aren't getting anywhere near those numbers and are instead on something more like 4-6mb's.

So yes, you are right, with Virgin I get what I pay for and then some. With ADSL services I've found this to be very, very different.

Hay Cobs, may I direct you to this discussion , if you really want to enjoy your new super fast BB, go download that game client - when I grabbed it, even at peak hours, it absolutely flew down the pipe, all 2Gb of it!

As of July my connection to Virgin gets upgraded for free from 30mb to 60mb, pretty sure they upload doubles too from 3mb to 6mb.

Can't wait. :)

I would honestly be fairly content(at least for a few years) with 2mbit down, 2mbit up, low latency, and no monthly bandwidth cap.

All this talk about 100megabit and stuff seems kinda silly to me tbh.
