    Virgin launch 100 Mb broadband.

    The interesting part for me is the 10 Mb upload speed, and that it's supposedly coming to my area (which so far has been fibre-free).

    Except for massive filesharing, what's the point of incredibly fast downloads? For browsing the web, you're mainly throttled by latency anyway, not bandwidth. Does 100 Mb really make much difference over 20 Mb here?

    I heared its coming soon to, 10meg uploads..? Thats amazing. Shame they monitor it or you could run a hosting company off of it with ease. However 100meg broadband will cost to darn much if you ask me. 50 meg is like 50 a month more or less, I pay 90 for V+ Box and 50meg broadband a month and I don't even have a mobile or home phone with them. My home phone is with BT because if I change I will lose my business phone number and the type of number I have at home is unique.

    cant get virgin in my area, hoping that BT Infinity will come our way, especially as I get broadband free from my work (as I work from home when on call).

    And router says this
    Code:
        	    	Downstream    	Upstream
    Data rate	4640 		448 
    Noise margin	6.0 		6.0 
    Output power	19.1 		11.3 
    Attenuation	53.5 		26.0
    With these values you can't go a lot faster.

    Not too bad, but not good enough!



    Not good enough either!

    I will have to complain to my provider.

    Anyone know when Speedtest updated their website? Been using it for years and its the first time I have seen the updated design. Really impressed by it.

    As usual I am sitting at 10Mb / 0.5Mb

    Certainly better than my first test, just due to upgrading from a usb wireless adaptor to a pci card.
