Faster Broadband Speeds 500+

So as Vodafone begin a rollout of 900/900 speeds, across the uk for less than £50, can we expect virgin media to “Catch Up”, and provide much faster upload as well as download.

With the way the network works I don't think so.

Re: Faster Broadband Speeds 500+

Have a read through this thread and the posts by Ignition. A very knowledgeable person on the subject.

Re: Faster Broadband Speeds 500+

At present Gigabit services like the one offered by Vodafone, or Hyperoptic/Gigaclear etc have extremely limited availability so aren't a real threat to Virgin Media, who can continue to advertise the fastest widely available speeds.
