they can roll out what they like but when you get throttled between 10AM and 10PM then whats the point anyway... I have just cancelled mine right down as your can only use the full speed over night! drop 5 gig durring the day (1 DVD 5gb 25min download) then my bandwidth was dropped to 2 meg. 100 meg line will simply mean i will be thorttled earlier!

Lets hope bt dont follow suite

virgin media attention hype again. really nothing to get excited about reading that.

they can pump multiple gigabits to your home if they wanted to its hardly groundbreaking technology, its just all cost dependant on what they offer the consumer.

they just decided to try and show up bt after it told everyone about their fibre to cabinet rollout plan (which is what virgin already have, fibre to cabinet)

The fibre is there for Virgin to do 1gig to the desktop, but it would cost on upgrades on routers and untill there is a need for it they will not provide it.

They are at the moment posterising

And it will also mean you'll get the Server not responding page on P.F in a Nanosecond instead of a Millisecond..
