Can Virgin Media increase our upload speed to 8mb/s?

I got 100mb/s download speed pack, and the upload speed is 6.5 only, which is not enough to stream gaming content with a decent quality.

We need at least 7.5mb/s upload speed for normal streaming with normal quality.

Can virgin media increase our upload speed please?

Thanks

Your upload speed can only be changed by upgrading to a higher package. 200Mb will give you 12Mb upload and 350Mb will give you 20Mb.

Re: Can Virgin Media increase our upload speed to 8mb/s?

No I dont want to upgrade, I want VIRGIN to increase 100mb pack upload speed to 8mb/s
100mb/s is enough for literally all gaming, with a ping of 7-10ms to any london/paris server

But 6.5mb/s upload speed is too slow, it needs to be at least 7.5 to stream in normal quality.

Which is all Im asking Virgin Media to do, a simple increase of 1 - 1.5mb/s upload speed on the 100mb/s pack!

I know this may come as a shock, but VM are a commercial enterprise and part of their remit is to up-sell you to a higher tier. Faster upload speeds are always going to be reserved for higher tiers.

SO no, they wont increases your upload speed unless you upgrade your package.

Re: Can Virgin Media increase our upload speed to 8mb/s?

i don't think they will change anything with upload speeds untill they bring out faster and what the network can handle and virgin media is good if you had 200mb and you can get the gamer addon which you can get 20mb upload speed but without the addon its 12mb upload speed

Using VIVID 350 Optical Fibre, Fun TV, Talk Weekends



Just another VM user trying to help out so my answers may be wrong.
If you do like my answer please mark it as helpful; it may help others

When it says streaming in that context it means Netflix, YouTube, and other video streaming services. The things the vast majority of consumers will be doing.
