4.3 today up here in East Kilbride. I suppose the data gets tired climbing the hill up to Nerston ;)

(A colleague of mine years ago told one of our users to take his foot off a cable because it would be a struggle for the data to crawl through...)

i'm £37.00 for my internet and £11 for my phone a month, then my discounts come off and i'm 33.50 a month for both, so will my internet go down to £28 if I upgrade to 50Mb?

if so i'll be signing up next month!

If you are a XL or XXL customer with Virgin Media then will will be given a brand new modem free of charge. Surely this must mean better/faster broadband??!!

we are getting a new modem and router after the 15th of August. we are going to be losing some of our discounts but for us to go to 50meg a month we are paying an extra £9 a month which is cheaper in the long run

Doing some downloading tonight and getting a throughput of 6MB per second - yes that is megabytes and not megabits. :D

I cant wait to get it! we asked the guy at the Virgin Media stand in Hamilton town centre about the price drop and he didnt have a clue, so we came in and phoned 150 and she advised us to phone back and order on the 15th august, so we will be doing that!

You can order it now and will still benefit from the price drop when it happens. It has been brilliant so far.
