Re: Seams VM won't be 100 200 300. After all


[re: Chrysalis] [link to this post]
 
I have to agree with you. I might only get 74 but I get that 24/7 and I've left my upload going for a week backing up and it's stil been full whack. I recall the days on VM where after less than an Hour I was throttled down until 4am just for uploading lots as it tok 4 hours from midnight to come off due to me uploading from say 5pm-6am.

Something FTTC has no issue with

I waited for 4 months when I moved in for FTTC to come - and I was glad when that day rolled around.

I was about to say "and I am glad they don't keep jacking up the price" when I saw that actually Sky are about to again according to ISPr frown

In reply to a post by Chrysalis:
If I was BT I would make sure no exchanges are in amber/red and then start a marketing campaign with the phrase "performance when you need it". Highlighting the consistency with peak vs off peak compared to the competition.


I think there might be some sort of Advertising rues that stop BT from doing that, though I would love to see this myself.

I think the true competition between Virgin & Openreach's networks will come once Virgin puts out faster uploads and Openreach releasing a Broadband only product (SOGEA)

Faster uploads could attract BT customers and Single Order GEA could attract Virgin customers.

yeah VM will claim the ad's are misleading and then BT would have to prove it.

Its not wrong if true.

still struggled to reliably stream a SD quality F1 sunday mornings from sky go
As a user of Sky's other streamer, Now TV, to get F1 coverage to fill in the BBC's gaps I know what you mean about the poor early morning streams but I very much doubt that is anything to do with VM, most likely a problem with Sky's network. Last time I had this I tried streaming Full HD from Netflix and YouTube at the same time and they worked flawlessly, Sky's stream didn't alter one bit, it stayed poor and kept dropping, regardless of what else I was doing on my connection.

Not bad I agree smile

Could be a bit more stable though :/

Would you mind giving us an update around 5-7PM?

EDIT: PS, I hope I wasn't being marked a VM hater, I still rely on them for two connections and quiet honestly have equal reason to love them as well as dislike them

Fortunately VM tend to give people a lot of truly excellent and valid reasons to hate them.
