Yes, I was upgraded last week, the engineers turned up unannounced and upgraded while I was at work, then had a picture message from my brother who was at home showing speedtest speeds of 15mbps down and 10mbps up!! I was wondering what he was going on about as we were barely getting above 2-3mbps before, so it was a nice surprise to come home to.
I've not had a chance to really test the connection out as I've been away on a stag weekend in Amsterdam. But early tests were great, the 1Gb test file to download from this site took about 10 minutes, a 180mb HD video podcast from iTunes took about 2 minutes, 1080p HD video from YouTube will pretty much stream. Overall the connection feels much snappier and the pings are as low as 11ms which should prove excellent for gaming.
Jonathan suggested about the faster speeds but didn't indicate exactly how fast, but I read that Orbital were trialling 100mbit connections so wondered how long before VFast would also start offering this speed. Will be interested to see these speeds but I really don't know what the hell I'll be using these speeds for!! lol. But if this happens I think it would make a great media piece, how an area such as Manston has gone from a non stable ADSL internet connection struggling to reach 0.5mbps, to receiving speeds of up to 100mbit through the air (Darren, if you need a case study please let me know).
Also the new antenna on the chimney is much smaller and discreet so I'm impressed by that too.
