100Mb now available in NW London

Just went to check which services were available in my area and i was surprised to see 100Mb there, as the 100mb roll out pdf said i'd get it in May. Virgin are beating their own timetable...lol

Still only got 4 downstream channels and 1 upstream tho.

Re: 100Mb now available in NW London

Also now available at a relatives home, connected to the Newton Abbot UBR. I mentioned this and he telephoned Virgin to ask to be upgraded from 50Mbit to 100Mbit today, and was told that whilst it is available VM weren't upgrading people at present. Is this policy?

Re: 100Mb now available in NW London

I rang up VM to see if i can get 100mb and was told that there would be an increase in my monthly charge. I then asked would there be an increase in charge when my speed gets doubled in July and the lady said no. I guess i gotta ring again another day and try my luck or just wait for my speed to be doubled.

Seems odd given the price for those originally on 100Mbit is decreasing in, I think, April.

I was on 30Mb before.

I asked her i wanted to upgrade my speed (didn't specify the 30Mb > 60Mb) she said she would look at the prices. She came back and told me she would upgrade my speed to 60Mb with no changes to the price i pay, it took about 1 minute to kick in, now on 60Mb.

Re: 100Mb now available in NW London

Hi Zee, gave them a call today and was upgraded to 100mb no extra charge. But still only getting 5Mb Upload. Did your upload speed increase to 6Mb or remain @ 30Mb?

mine actually went a little less, got a lower upload config file. Before was around 3.20Mb upload now around 2.90Mb upload.

upload speed will not be updated until around the time the actual upgrade was supposed to happen, so for our area it said July onwards...
