The best about V/M the speed stays the same no matter what time of day it is.

Mine don't. They are all over the place anything from 9 to 60 depending on the server. My nearest server (Norwich) is usually very slow around 12 -20, but if I select Basildon or Northampton I get much better speeds usually around 40 -50. I rarely get the 60 I pay for. Spent hours on the helpline but they couldn't improve it.

Speed is good but why do you and the others need it.

bumpkin: I'm with you. If all you're doing is browsing the web, you won't see much (if any) difference in pages opening between 5Mbits and 60Mbits. 5MBits - less, in fact - is perfectly adequate for streaming, playing games and so on. To me, the only advantage of higher speeds is if you're downloading large files - high def movies, for example - and, being an instant gratification sort of person, need them to complete in seconds rather than minutes.
