connection problems

Has anyone else out there had trouble connecting to the net via their ISP over the last week or so???
I emailed them and they said that the net is very busy with people looking for anti-virus software and that they are in contact with BT to free things up but I would still like to hear from anybody who uses
My connections are fine (I think) but i get different error messages, cut off (alot!) and 'refreshing' doesn't help!
It's driving me round the bend!! :) thanks! David

David,i have noticed problems over the last 1-2 weeks,but not getting cut off,but having trouble dialing in-several attempts.It is annoying but i find it strange as well,as usually, for me,has been an exceptional isp.(24/7).

Haven't had any problems with Virgin 24/7. In fact I emailed support to change my main address because of the gradual build up of spam (have mailwasher) they replied with the answer, well the lo-call phone number to do so the next day. Which is if needed (0845 6501000).

Having quite a few problems aswell. Contacted support and they gave me a couple of new numbers to try but no luck. Initial connection seems to be the problem but once connected it seems fine.

They gave me 2 new numbers to dial and that did improve things a little although tonight there seems to be a few problems again. Nothing as bad as last week though!
I have to say having emailed them i get a very quick reply.
Lets hope things improve further.
I will stay with Virgin though as on the whole they have a good reputation (been with them 3-4 months and haven't had any difficulties until now)and their emails have been prompt and helpful!
Thanks for your input everybody! :) D
