Thumbs up Speed Tripled - Nice & Simple



Impressive - above speed is via Super Hub wireless (albeit about 30cm away from my laptop).

Logged into My Virgin Media yesterday and there was an option to 'Upgrade Me' to my new speed from 20Mb to 60Mb. Filled in the form and got an email today asking me to ring in and confirm some missing info, 5 mins on the phone and told to switch SH off for an hour and hey presto 60Mb it is when switched back on.

Seems like the upgrades have begun early as according to the main site, my area wasn't due until July!

Virgin Media - I salute you!

Re: Speed Tripled - Nice & Simple

Looks like they're rushing upgrades through in areas that aren't ready... 2.6mb upload on >60mb download?

Re: Speed Tripled - Nice & Simple

he should be hitting at least 3, may be its a wireless issue. Superblade can you test via wired and post your result.

as for 6Mb up, VM....

Will my upload speed increase, as well?

Yes! It’s not just your downloads that’ll become much faster. Your upload speeds will be automatically increased as we upgrade our network, so you get the best of both worlds.

Depending on the progress of the network upgrade there maybe a delay after your download speed is increased before your upload speed boost occurs.
Quote:
the long term plan is all speeds will have a 10:1 ratio but the upload speed increase might follow a bit after the download.

Re: Speed Tripled - Nice & Simple

Bit silly since they've barely finished the 10:1 upstream uplift in most areas yet and are already having to revert to lower upstream ratios.

Clearly their commitment to 10:1 ratios only applies as long as it's not at the cost of marketing excessive download speeds in the interim.

Andrew,

I logged into My Virgin Media and just above the box with your bill info was a green box saying click for more info about speed upgrades. Clicked on that and then another box popped up stating my upgrade was 20 to 60 and advising me to click on the 'Upgrade Me' button.

It may only be available as and when your upgrade is ready to be rolled out.

Hope that helps, Superblade7
