Alternatives to Virgin Media Broadband
I have been with them under whatever name they went by for maybe 10 years now and the service has been great but alas I have had it with the throttling, itís just plain unfair!
I am a downloader, but not one that I would consider extreme and having not used my internet for over a week I downloaded a couple of missed TV episodes (yes I know, naughty me) and bam hit the cap. 5 Hours later I tune in to watch the footy (actually legal so ner) on my sky player and bam hit the cap again.
So I can pay for the 20Mb service and have a bigger download allowance but get pretty much the same speed (about 12mb on both 10 and 20 Mb service - strange huh) or look to go elsewhere.
O2 bang on to me weekly that I am entitled to free broadband but as Iím with virgin I canít do the checker as I have no BT line and I donít know anyone in my road who is on BT! So they estimate about 2Mb - Iím in Birmingham for god sake - 2Mb????
How do I use my internet at any time without a stupid cap, 2Mb is too low but I would take 5 - 8Mb unlimited any day. If anyone can get round the "you donít have a BT line" carp and check my supposed speed please PM me.
