What is Virgins 50mb plan at the moment, I have the 20mb service ion North Lodnon and have not heard any news on upgrades.

Re the speed test issue while max speed are good measure a company that was in it just to gouge their customer woudl make gaurantees about minimum speeds.

I can get rock solid 20mb at 2am on a weekday but from 7 -12pm can be anyones guess often around 4-7.

May I also direct members to the relevant discussion section on your broadband provider :)

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) -

Many things can affect speed. Distance from exchange, caps, number of machines on a home network, traffic shaping

It looks like the London server can support pretty good speeds :D
