Although I'm very interested I won't be an early adopter. I'll prefer to wait and see reports of performance.
Here is a good Q&A blog post from the BBC,
BBC NEWS | dot.life | A blog about technology from BBC News | Virgin: some 50 Meg questions
and the comments echo my experiences with Virgin.
Yes, 1.5Mbps is more than enough for things like xbox live... As you say Kevin the 50mb looks great, but I really can't believe that it will be STM/restriction free once the rollout is coming up to completion - the statement from "the register" just seemed kinda of fishy.
, I had a similar experience with xbox live interruptions on Virgin.... no problems on O2!
