Anyway, I found this a better article describing what Virgin are up to than the one liked above (where I stole the quotes from). The reality is that many customers will never see that speed, and the ISPs will shut down protocols for half the day or more without admitting what they're doing. Maximum of 2 devices per account can watch TV. You can install PCguard on up to three PCs in your home, as long as they all meet the minimum specification required to run PCguard .

This feature is not available right now. Excludes indirect access, dial-up internet, other non-geographic numbers, 070 Personal Numbering, and 076 Paging charge-bands.

I jumped ship, although it meant paying well over £100 to get a landline back (same reason as 25 above). If you upgrade any aspect of the service, standard pricing will apply to that upgrade. If that is indeed what they're doing, would you guess malicious intent or just the routine confluence of incompetence and cupidity?

XP box and she didn't replace the router, as it worked again after an engineer came round to deal with something else and fixed the router problem while he was there; When I used Telecential/Comtel/NTL back in 2000, the amount of ARP who-has packets bridged down my CM was staggering - but not anything worry much about.

  • Without responses on these ports they assume you're routed/firewalled (a reasonable assumption).

We moved a whole mile (so out of the cabled area) and went with Virgin.net adsl which was pretty good, and then they were bought by ntl. Which would be Very Bad Indeed for us "consumers". Calls may be monitored. http://stricklandresearch.net/problem-installing/problem-installing-byond-media.html And as long as they ALL sit on the peak, they all have the same problem and the people who suffer are the end users, and the media suppliers.

On the other hand the upgraded speeds have just been/are still being rolled out so, for no more than you were paying before, you will still be able to download/upload more.

Even so, I'd like to find a more trustworthy ADSL+phone service (no TV for me). In short, whilst I enitrely sympathise with your ire at Virgin's current antics, your inacuracies don't help you to make your case. Price includes line rental (£19 per month).
