Re: Virgin Lift STM Thresholds on 120 product

In reply to a post by pcoventry76:
Ah thanks for the info


Welcome. The 120Mb is capped at 133Mb normally, however when the reduction of 10% comes in it's 10% of 120Mb, not 133Mb.

Ah I see, fair play. I understand it finally.

It's still way fast enough. I've just sent a letter to talk talk and the ASA. I'm lucky as I wear a body cam for work so everything he told me I got on tape.

I'm just about to be upgraded to the 120 service from 60 (and cheaper than I'm currently paying. Huzzah!) simply because the upload rate is so terrible.

My daughter has started streaming her gameplaying on TwitchTV and it takes little time for VM throttling to kick in and reduce it to jitter and lag. I was about to leave for BT Infinity 2 but thankfully the second VM advisor I spoke to (first one was a snotty madam who gave me incorrect information) offered me the upgrade and reduction in payments.

It's a shame they don't have the same throttling ratio for uploads as downloads. 63 percent off is a hell of a lot.

If uploading is important get BT INFINITY2
virgin traffic management is a joke.
I would expect bt to be 3 to 4 times faster

True. FTTC is lots better than Virgin Media on the upload and no traffic management but if BT to bring out 120/20 then virgin media will going to lose around 80% customers!

Given less than 10% of VM's customers take 120Mb right now that doesn't seem likely.

Is it mentioned anywhere that hitting the 2 hour threshold will also double your ping times ??

Seems to be the case here.

That's not mentioned and isn't the case for me
