Nice one £13.50 per person. But upload still poor.

That's not bad, I went with Virgin at £89 a month for their top package inc TV as I was paying Sky more than that just for TV.
It started off as 300Mbps but they've not long upgraded me to 500Mbps for free.
I'll probably get the Gig package when/if its available.

Likely the best upload of any service available to him, unless he has an fttp altnet available.

The average and burst HTTP look amazing, the average TBB is oddly low, but I think that happens on all VM connections.

I've found single thread performance really does vary between 300Mbps upwards depending on when you test, although the x6 tests are far more consistent. Then again that's always been the case with VM, even before Gig1.

Speed-wise, the highest typical speed I achieve when doing multi-threaded downloads on my setup is around 1150Mbps, although not many servers can keep up with that.

If only the upload was better...

What's your upload?

I recall you having G.fast available but you weren't happy about it, I wouldn't be either if it wasn't upgradeable....

Once Virgin starts rolling out full duplex docsis 3.1 or even before uploads will still be upgradeable over this pie in the sky xDSL bs
