Third world problem I know but gradually getting tired of Virginmedia in SE18 - i have 152mb...when it works, which during a week day is most of the time, it's fine. Evening, it slows down generally to around 60/70 sometimes 50. Again, generally fine.
However, in the past few weeks we have had the DNS issues (now changed mine) and twice, network has failed - i say twice, they've lasted a few days each time. Both area issues, supposedly should have received some service but in practice nada. Luckily I have 4G at home and can get an ok service for periods.
In the past, over the olympics, it took 8 months to get an area issue (high usage) resolved. It has been ok since.
This morning, the thinkbroadband speed test registered av download speed 151 (using ethernet over powerline), latency of 58ms, burst (6x) 191 and burst (1x) of 86.
I do need to keep checking and start measuring properly but am I silly to move to Plusnet - the expected speed is 75mb and 19 up.
Friends tell me Plusnet is great and the local cabinet is showing as good in terms of capacity.
Price is a wash - with cashback and the offers, broadband and phone is effectively the same over 18 months.
