Virgin’s cable broadband service remains one of the most reliable and powerful systems available in the UK. We are lucky enough to have cable in the neighbourhood and we’ve enjoyed a trouble-free and speedy service for many years.
Friends with telephone-based broadband have not been so lucky, suffering outages, slower-than-promised speeds and, sometimes, frustrating set-up procedures. In comparison, Virgin’s cable broadband service is a paragon of easy set up and faultless reliability.
Currently we take Virgin’s 50 Mb service and regular speed tests show it is giving what it says on the tin: 49.95 Mb down and 4.75 up. Now, Virgin is upping the download speed to 120 Mb at no extra cost. Can’t be bad.
