yeah that becuase virgin are cheats, i have there 10mb fibre optic broadband and fact is with there caps if max my connection for 20 mins between 4 and 9 then i get capped by 75% for the next 5 hours, and i do not care what they say that is unfair 29 mins in a five hour period. Also believe they are carrying out other traffic managment as if i am watching youtube videos during their peak times the video streams will be throttled back and i do not see that mentioned anywhere on there website.

I personally think virgin should concentrate more on providing the sevice i signed up for rather than bashing internet speedcheckers that prove they are providing a crap services.

Your being capped is nothing to do with the accuracy of speed testers.

at what point did i say it did? I am being capped becuase i max my connection for 20 mins in a five hour period. I was simply stating that virgin should concentrate more on actually delievering the speeds they say they can all day everyday and if they did that then people would have no need to go and use speed checkers
