Re: Vivid 400

300Mb/s has just been launched theres not going to be 400Mb/s any time soon. What would you do with 400 that you couldnt do with 200 / 300?

Re: Vivid 400

For a start... Why 400 anyway? Who's to say they don't got 350, 500? etc

Secondly, having just brought out 300 into mainstream (i.e. outside of Homeworks), then I can't imagine anytime soon!

Re: Vivid 400

They struggle to provide a decent 200 in most areas so how they going to provide 400 ..an utter joke. Another money making scheme on their part no doubt as if we all don't pay enough for an inferior service already

Re: Vivid 400

whinge whinge whinge

 

Hey my 300 is 315 all day at least so I couldnt care less about someone elses connection.

 

I heard that they will do a 400 maybe 2018 Jan, yes rumour but decent source.

 

People ask why would you want 400mbps

 

erm people on gigaclear and hyperoptic are on 1gbps and some of em are over 50's.

 

Why...cuz its there .

 

CMON!

They were going to do 300 Mbit years ago with actual real credible sources that could be quoted, and then made it 200 last minute.. I believe it was around the Olympics from memory. 

If 200mbit was announced Q3 2015 and CMTS upgrades are still being completed, as well as the whole project lightning... Why would it make sense to increase them again. May as well hold out till upgrades are completed and heck, why not start looking into Docsis 3.1 at that point as the CMTS can handle it. 

And stop telling people to stop whinging. This is a tech forum and utilisation exists, so you will get people upset that new speeds keep being advertised when they are unable to even get half of the current speeds.

Re: Vivid 400

If TW-BY were still here we would be on more than 300Mb/s now as it was in the pipeline.

The last few FREE 2x Upgrades have NOT been 2x upgrades for the peeps paying for the top tier product.

100>120>152>300   < Ballbooted a good few times.

P.S I have been on Vivid 300 since early Nov 2016 so not so new just not advertised unless you used the postcode checker as a new customer not existing customer (log out and change homepage)
