In a good area, at a good time, with good kit you'll be able to download films super quick but as I found recently with my Virgin connection it's absolutely pants at doing some things such a good quality Skype calls and over the last year the network has n my area has grown ugly with congestion due to Virgins great idea of handing out free upgrades left right and centre and not upgrading anything locally to cope with the new top out speed...
Streaming after 3pm becomes a bit choppy with 7-8pm leading to a 5 min buffering break.
I recently helped a relative with a house move and they lived in a good area for Virgin but they've told me that they see the improvement on things like Skype calls and general responsiveness of the connection and they've gone to a slower connection than they had with Virgin.
Don't mean to slam virgin, they helped me out for years but they've not got it anymore IMO.
Thought I would go ahead and add some speed test results showing my disappointment.
