Re: Virgin Media 400Mbps service :)

The screenshot was the uSwitch speed tester being inaccurate. They usually test new speeds by upgrading all customers on a tier in a particular area, there is no option to opt-in to these, everyone gets it.

They do this to check how the load on the network increases, so will do it in areas with various amounts of capacity and various quantities of customers sharing that capacity.

A really big point about it is not telling the people in the trial area so that they don't have people speed testing en masse and skewing the results Smiley Happy

Re: Virgin Media 400Mbps service :)

Well the Q is then.. did you ask for this increase or did they give it without you requesting it Pyrotenax?
