    Virgins 10meg business connection, with slower upload speeds than Virgins home connections.

    You are basically on a 0.5mb connection, if you download 200mb between 9am and 9pm your connection gets a speed cut by 75%.

    Have a look at Virgins traffic management policy here: http://shop.virginmedia.com/help/traffic-management/traffic-management-policy.html

    ow much are you paying for 2mb? i hope its next to nothing as you should easily be on 10mb!!

    Its Fiber to the phone cabinet on your street, the last bit of the journey from the cabinet to your house is still done on the same old copper phone wires. So now its basically the closer you are to the phone cabinet on your street the better speeds you will get.

    All BT need to do in the future is replace that copper wire and you have fiber directly to your home, which will easily give you much greater speeds yet again :)
