    Virgin Media Business Broadband 10

    Just been to look at a site for a client and got a couple of questions around this and want to try and avoid talking to Virgin Media directly if I don't have to

    They have the package mentioned above, From paperwork they have they get 10MB cable line for 40pm.

    Does anybody know the contention ratio's of Virgins business cable lines?

    Does it mean they will get steady 10mb or is it like ADSL?

    I've never used a cable line so not really sure and the Virgin website is next to useless!

    My homeline is a rock solid 30Mb - so you'd hope the business version is at least as good. They do do traffic throttling though - so you'd need it in writing that they will not apply this on your proposed line.

    That is what I don't know. I will have to try and call them to get information out of them. The line is already in place and has been running for a while.

    virgin are pretty good at providing the speeds they advertise from my experience as a cable based customer, not sure about the contentions and ADSL offerings though.
