Yes that's well known. But then again what trust can someone have in them based on their current performance in business service as well as residential?

SO the £149 a month for 30/30 would be a better option than £55 a month for the 350? If someone can get the latter I mean.

30/30 being managed I assume there is a better SLA.

Interesting to see what they can do for the right £

In our old building we had a 100/100 circuit (aka, "leased line") from Virgin Media Business. It had none of the issues the local DOCSIS network has suffered from. It was fantastic smile

I am eyeing up the 30/30 to use as a CCTV uplink circuit.

No more related than comparing a leased line with FTTC. Backhaul isn't a problem, sharing a fibre between a few hundred customers via coax is the rub.


Interestingly I can now (today) order 300...So I can only assume they have sorted the network? Does that sound about right ?

Yes indeed. Upgrades done, network monitored, content that they are able to deliver the higher speeds without degrading service.
