Internet speeds...

Was just browsing through some old threads on here, discussing internet speeds, going back around 15 years. It's amazing how far tech has come on since back then!

Last week I upgraded to Virgin Media's VIVID300 package, which is their top package designed for gamers/streamers. No traffic management or throttling, 300Mb/s download, 20Mb/s upload.

Here's what I'm currently getting from www.speedtest.net :

Have run this test a couple of times a day over the last week, and it averages between 350Mb/s and 385Mb/s. The upload speeds are consistently around 18-22Mb/s. Cost is £58 a month, but that includes their medium TV package and landline phone with free weekend calls. Not bad!


Well, Calibrax probably won't see this for a while, but Virgin Media are having problems...

No problems here... Virgin have been very reliable for me. I've been with them since they were Telewest, back in 1999 :)
