Didn't you pretend to leave VM?


Didn't pretend anything i did leave.. But then the phone line coming to my house went faulty and I couldn't be bothered A to get it repaired and B to pay line rental so I came back to VM

In reply to a post by adslmax:
Generally Virgin says that their existing broadband customers should expect to receive a download boost of “at least 20Mbps“. But uploads will not be improved and you’ll have to sign-up to a new 12 month contract in order to benefit.

Rubbish upload as it proved BT FTTC still the fastest upload.


They have always boosted it to 10% of the download. (apart from when we had 768/384 back in the day. Why do you think they won't this time? okay 15 is better than 12 but not as good as 20 agreed

They should have 200/20 instead but they won't do it. Only 152/15 is rather poor upload.

Oh well, I don't personally use upload much but I can see how it will upset some.

Indeed not. Upgrading the downstream is relatively painless, upstream somewhat more difficult.

Yeah, it pretty stupid. As we know virgin media will NEVER gonna to improve upload for the next five years at least!

If BT Openreach (secret plan) to roll out 80/20 FTTC to become 160/20 then I believed many virgin customers will move away from virgin to join BT.

On the first paragraph you're wrong, and on the second paragraph you either made it up or have been speaking with some poorly informed field technicians. 160Mb is out of reach on FTTC right now and the required changes would require consultation with service providers via Ofcom.

Rubbish. Bt can do FTTC up to 160/20 if they want. Yes, if BT want it, they go ahead with it. BT are lip sealed secret.

What VDSL2 profile is that using?

Am guessing you are working to profile 30 and allowing for vectoring, or is there some other secret sauce involved?
