    NTL Telewest are now known as Virgin Media... they license the Virgin brand from Branson thanks to him having 5% shares in the company as a result of the sale of Virgin Mobile to NTL a few years back.

    They do have extreme throttling at peak times (90% of you're speed can be cut) and are launching an advertising service on all their user's PC's as part of their service, as well as recently announced ISP content control so it's not all rosie, not to mention the fact they struggle to provide all customers bandwidth at peak times.

    And the crap customer services doesnt help lol.

    LinuxGod, are you on the FTTH or a 100Mbps trial? You don't live near Dolphin Square do you, very nice speeds

    NTL have been trialling 100Mbps FTTH on and off for almost a decade now.

    Virgin are now trialling it for the simple reason the broadband market is currently in a numbers race and they think it's good to be seen offering stupid, unrealistic speeds for next to nothing, all they do is keep upgrading speeds and never actually upgrading the infastructure and letting their others services decline...

    They are still on DOCSIS 1.1 ffs lol! There are provides in the US already rolling out DOCSIS 3.0 iirc??

    It may not seem awful, but the packet loss and latency is terrible so you can't do anything fun (games, streaming video/audio, etc). My only other option is slow DSL. I don't know what to do.

    DOCSIS 1 struggles with upload mate, you upload at full whack and everyone on you're UBR will feel it on their downstream...

    Hence they need to upgrade, but they refuse to so you are stuck with lame uploads forever...

    Oh so you have not been affected by the two national outages they have suffered in the past 12 months?

    And they are always doing work on their UBR's at like 1am - 6am, I have them as backup to my o2 connection and tbh the amount of work that is carried out between these times is absurd, a sure sign that their network needs upgrading.

    And I live on the more advanced Bromley part of the network too.

    Ouch, 50 times on the phone to BT, thier average cue is like 30 minutes in my experience.

    I am happy to say I am free of BT now and have Sky managing my line, BT were trying to charge me 18.00 a month line rental (bear in mind I have Sky Talk for call's so where the charge was coming from god only knows), I use my mobile for everything anyway so only ever have the basic line rental on my home line.

    Changed over to Sky Talk Landline back in October and all has been fine ever since, 10 a month line rental and no scam, I am very happy to be BT-free!!

    Download Speed: 15194 kbps (1899.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 6399 kbps (799.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
    That's from Speakeasy New York (closest to me).

    From Speedtest.net, I got 7988kbps on downstream and 14053kbps on upstream... If the speedtest.net flash app had a no-frills mode or a low-quality graphics mode so it wouldn't bog down my aging P3, I'm sure I'd get more.. realistic speeds.
