Still a big blow to upload thought. I wish upload reduced to 10 not 4.3

Nice to see they've done this on all their product tiers. Lowest I go to now is 50 from 60

Upload still dire


[re: adslmax] [link to this post]
 
I agree. Upload is crippling for me. I'm on the XL60 product which is 3 upload and that drops to 1.1

Cable broadband upload 1.1 is bad really because BT copper on ADSL2+ can get 1.2 upload and also BT FTTC get 20.0 upload

Virgin Media is too fussy doesn't want upload as their top priority for you tubes, fb other to uploads.

Come on Virgin Media get rid of silly STM on upload.

Just waiting to get a petty upgrade to 6mb upload now. It's been promised for so long!

Although I don't know why publish the limits. For me anyway I can never hit them. I get 105 stage 1 and 96 stage 2. and whilst some will say " oh 96mbps such a hard life" that's not the point, The speeds are fine but with me VM have never actually given me the speeds they put on http://my.virginmedia.com/traffic-management/traffic... so why bother to publish them at all!?

This is back to that issue where the 'penalty' data rate is exactly what is on the webpage, with no extra to take care of overheads, so the actual performance people see for real world usage ends up somewhat lower.

Ah thanks for the info

I've just been told by a talk talk Street monkey that having 120 is illegal and the government will cut me off

Lying scum!!
