Virginmedia Speed Test.

Just notice that I have received the free Virginmedia Upload speed of 1 Mb.
But no use giving you a higher upload speed if they give you a far lower download speed.
I used to get the full 10Mb but noticed now that I am only getting just over or just under the 7mb download depending whether I am using I/E or Firefox.
Any other Virginmedia customer having the same problems.

My friend has Virgin Media Broadband with a claimed download of 20MB. I could not find on his home page any reference to a Virgin speedtester and we used three other testers and they all gave around 6/8MB. One wonders to the 20MB claimed?

Using click here I am getting 18 meg + with a nominal 20 MB connection. That seems reasonable to me.

On Virgin Media Cable 10mb

9.64 Download
4.65 Upload

can't complain at that.

I used to get about 450 kbps upload speed but now they have increased it to 1.03 Mb and at the same time dropped my download speed to just 7Mb from 10mb.
If still the same tomorrow I will be giving them a ring to see what the problem is.
Just wondered if anyone else was getting the same problem.
