Hi folks,first of all,happy new year to everyone.My girlfriend is on a 2mb broadband service with virgin and I thought it seemed a bit slow.I ran a test and got 947kbs(download)and 124(upload)Is this slower than it should be?

Yes, it's about half speed, but Virgin would say it's 'within tolerance'.

i was on the same package with virgin and had similar problem with the speed so i sent an email and said i had had enough and threatened to cacel and go with another provider.they phoned and said they would increase my speed to 20meg at the same price of 2meg.so my advice is to complain and see what they offer you.at the end of the day they want your business so hopefully you will get what you want.

Try tweaking the connection with TCP Optimizer click here Download and install the prgram. Select the network adapter from the drop-down list, set the slider to 2 Meg and click on Optimal settings then Apply. Reboot the PC and see if there's any improvement.
