Re: VFast - New Packages to be announced

This is very interesting as it seems the minister does not share the same view on Wireless broadband as many county councils and BDUK. He states that Superfast Broadband is technology neutral.

In reply to a post by slimj:
Thanks for the update Darren, looking forward to seeing what packages you will be offering shortly. I shall fire off an email to support next month as I have a couple of questions.

Cheers


Just read the news about Quickline Communications on the front page and the small note of ThinkBroadband reporting about Barham in 2010 and the VMax package being upgraded to 50mb.

I guess the new packages are a little bit late then - still if you need any service testing then I would like to volunteer.

Hi Darren.

Don't know who the Anonymous poster is but I have sent you a pm with a run of Speedtests for tonight and back in June (at least for the same IP).

It's pretty much variable to say the least.

Hi fellow vFasters

Interesting stuff, I signed up with vFast at the end of 2010 and was absolutely blown away by the speeds, was managing to get over 60mb down and 30mb up. Admittedly I'm under half a mile away from the Ash repeater and almost line of sight which must help. All this and I was only on the vHome package so I was a really happy bunny. I guess I must have been on some special high speed trial because unfortunately over the last few months the speeds have decreased, they seemed to go down to vPro speeds and now I'm only getting what I pay for. The problem is you get used to the higher speeds and it's really hard to accept a measly 15Mbps/2Mbps especially when things like iPlayer start buffering. I'm not a high volume user and don't do massive downloads so I think it would be only right for vFast to put me on to these higher speeds ASAP free of charge as a sort of compensation.

Cheers John

Hi ModemMan, welcome to the forum (checks profile and see's that you're a long time lurker rather than poster).

I had a similar bonus a while back when I was trialling the higher speeds from the Dunkirk mast. I can't remember the upper limit but it was certainly higher than the VMax 24mb/10mb package I am on now.

I only noticed after I uploaded a lot of photos and videos to Flickr and it finished much sooner than I had expected. Speeds were set back to the fixed package a month or two later.

I reckon they are giving us a free hit to get us hooked wink smile

As part of our research into network performance, we do sometimes open up customers connections for a month or two, this is to see how they perform and what effect it has on latency etc.....
