Been upgraded by Virgin & sppeds are up between 1 to 2 Mbps.
But sometimes even though i'm connected to the net no pages open in Firefox or IE7.
Tried using the ping command but it times out.

Then suddenly it all starts to work again?
Problem on line/with virgin or both.
And whats the best way to speed things up?

Note
-----
BT Exchange can only offer 4MB tops.

Should have said speeds are now up from 2Mbps to max of 3.9Mbps.
Currently 2.9Mbps.

It may be the hops in between your ISP and page you are trying to access thats the problem, There is nothing you can do about that

Have you tried to trace the route to the server? I think the command in Windows is tracert.
