It is extremely unfair considering Ireland has had their standalone 500mbps for a while and virgin is going with british tradition of ripping the brits off. lovely. :/ I was looking forward to a speed boost today.
I have to agree. I would pay for 500Mb/s but not interested in V.VIP. I don't need to TiVO boxes (just me at the misses at home and one bedroom one lounge - not interested in having it in the bedroom).
The only positive outcome is the upload speed upgrade, but then again it is still very low. I know virgin will eventually make 500 a standalone broadband tier but this goes to show virgin isn't interested in "boosting" customers speeds now.
