horrible from virgin media, I am surprised its took this long to hit the news.

The 3 billion quoted by the CEO is on network expansion to new areas not capacity upgrades in existing areas.
He mentioned he got the areas in the film fixed, but this wasnt verified by the bbc and of course what about the 100s of other areas not in the film.
He failed to address the issue why are VM even accepting orders in high utilisation areas, regardless of what the sales people are pushing.
I think the bbc should have pushed the ASA/ofcom for a statement.

The problem with VM is they arent that user friendly.

I would consider signing up with them but;

1. I have no idea what my speed would be.

2. I don't know if I'm in a bad congested area or not.

3. Will my speed be constant through day/night?

4. Will my ping be low?

VM is a text book case of little regulation. They have been allowed to chug along while BTOR have been targetted by Ofcom.
