Like a lot of people, I fell for it. Virgin's much hyped "double your broadband speed" free of charge.
Unfortunately they increased our monthly charge for 30Mbps from £28.50 to £30.00 per month coinciding with this.
More unfortunately whilst Virgin have almost doubled my downstream speed, they have reduced the upstream speed from a fairly consistent 3Mbps to 2.8Mbps, rather than doubling it to 6Mbps.
I had thought that when Virgin, carrying Richard Branson's imagery, bought NTL, the deviousness would disappear. How wrong I was.
I would be interested to hear of other people's experience with the Virgin speed doubling process.
