Virgin are constantly advertising that they are the fast internet available here in the uk.
This may be the case yes you can get your 100mb or near that speed but what they don`t tell you is, Virgin has a fair usage policy which will seriously affect you.
If you have signed up to Virgin for the speed, you have signed up because you download stuff or to stream videos after all how much speed do you need to check your email?.
When Virgin introduced there 50mb/100mb speed there wasnt a fair usage policy on them, but they have constantly changed there policy meaning more and more virgin users are now trapped into a contract and they can`t get out of it until the contract is up.
A lot of people on the Virgin Forums are constantly moaning about how streaming videos are constantly buffering, how playing online on your ps3 or xbox360 results in lag i thought you should know this.
Now just last week Virgin in all the hype of speeding up your connection free, Virgin actually raised their prices and introduced a new fair usage policy http://www.virginmedia.com/images/STM_30Mb_above_800pxA.jpg
So please check this out because although super fast will no doubt grab you by the never regions you need to look into it more seriously i am on 100mb soon to be 120mb and my friend who lives next door is on another internet 11mb via a BT cable, can watch streaming videos and play games better than i can, i have had to cancel my subscription to a retail video rental company who streams videos via the ps3 because it simply lags to much.
So if you are a light user go ahead but why would you need 100mb if you just check your email>?
If you download or stream videos/music or anything Virgin is not for you despite the superfast speed.
