Yes i'm very happy with them myself, the free upgrade from 2mb to 10mb is superb, i CANNOT fault the internet service that i receive from them, and I hope it continues

Hi, I'm also with Virgin and have been since the start (Blueyonder), under Richard Branson the service is much more reliable and faster.
I am on the 10mb and I nomally get 9-9.4mb, even at peak times.

Upload speed is normally about 20% of the download speed on all ISP providers

I'm also gone up to the 10Mb speed. My download speed halved from what it was on the 2Mb and now averages between 39 and 75 kBs. Not happy.

I'm also with Virgin Media 10mb and that speed from them is never to much of a problem most of the time you get what you pay for infact on one outstanding occaison I had for 1 Speed test 40mb.
The problems on speed are with whom you are downloading from. In particular Security Providers.
