Anyone on 100MB Yet ??


[link to this post]
 
Just wondering if anyone has taken up 100MB yet and what they think of it..... So far no complaint from me hitting a decent speed of average 95meg down / 9 up.

Although I do wish the engineer did not take away my 50meg modem and router seperates when he brought the new super hub after reading peoples comments of the new hub on here...... Nevermind.

So anyone made the jump like me ???

Ex ZeN Residential 1MB (2003)
Ex Bulldog Communications 8MB (2006)
Ex NDO ADSL Homemax+ 8MB FIP (2008)
Ex Virgin Media 50MB Fibre Optic Cable (2011)

Now Virgin Media 100MB Fibre Optic Cable.
94.34 Mb/s Down, 8.81 Mb/s Up

Your speed looks great. I can't wait till i move back home. My father is on VM 20 meg. The minute i move in that's going upto 50, then when 100 is live i'm upgrading to that too. smile

I wish VM would post dates when each area will be getting 100MB. I'm on 50 atm and while the speed is fine, its nice to know how long I will have to wait. wink

There is a page either on here or the VM website that gives you the planned upgrade dates for each area.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem.

No 100Mbit here in Norwich yet, but 50Mbit is still pretty much as fast as always, it's rare I don't get max throughput on servers I know provide it, speed tests are usually 50mbit on the nose, if there's any contention in the area at the exchange or on the backhaul then I'm not seeing it during most hours.

I have high hopes for 100mbit actually maxing the line speed easily, about 95Mbit+ real speed test, the thing I'm looking foward to the most is the added upload, I run all sorts of stuff from my home PC, my personal vent server, my development websites, databases etc, this all benefits from upload going up by a factor of nearly 10x

What i am trying to find out is when the Gorleston exchange will be upgraded.

My parents live in Great Yarmouth and putting their postcode in samknows it comes up with the Gorlestone exchange. It says it is VM enabled and so is the Great Yarmouth exchange. I can find the Great Yarmouth Exchange on that website i posted but not the Gorlestone one..?

VM don't use exchanges.

Go to http://tools.virginmedia.com/ from your VM connection and check your client host name. It should start with something like CPCn-XXXXnn- Match the XXXX up with the rollout schedule short name
