ok they have enabled 2 channel upload for Warrington aera now at 8:30am on 15th march 2013
only checked 4 connections but 2 of them are the other side of Warrington so i guess its network wide for my Virgin area code think its 09?
pings are now normal and my next door person does not need to switch to sky adsl any more (only taken them 2 years to do it) as he been using my internet for last 2-3 weeks
this is how bad his internet has been for quite some time (F8lure now has Firebrick
over the road
bellow was before and after (note date was the 15th march 2013 just in case any one looks at this later on) all the red was due to that His modem should be at his dads house but its in his flat so it would not up date the dual channel upstream (access denied) untill he plugged it back in where the modem should be, it worked ok once he got back to his flat
so i guess the load balancing access 2 up streams works well
