I can if i want to pay the contract cancellation fee
If you do a lot downloading you might find 50Mb limiting, I know I would. 100Mb is the lowest I would want to manage with.
Yeah i download games often when i uninstall for space saving as they are gettting hefty these days even a 500gb ssd fills up in no time as a game drive. I also download files which weigh in at 50-70gb sometimes and even on 200mb i find it quite slow going!
Yes, exactly this. Gone are the days of 1GB game downloads and DVD installs.
Vivid 500 exclusive V.VIP bundle. Sad times
Don't need 500Mbps download, even 350Mbps is more than enough for most, it is the upload speed need to increase.
Definitely, which thankfully we've just had a small bump to 35Mb. I'm off to Sweden soon where for years they've had synchronous down/up so 400Mb upload as well as download and they pay comparatively around the same as us.
Virgin really need to work on their upload speed if they want to stay ahead of the game, won't be long until they are superseded by Vodafone and other Fibre providers.
Does that mean you need all the other extra crap too to get it? I echo the comments of the others that they need to up their upload game.
I'm only on the 350Mbps package because the upload is the lowest I would deal with.
BT need to lower their SuperFast prices too as I would have switched if they could offer a decent deal on the 330MBps package, but VM was still cheap on the retentions deal.
The business broadband has been upgraded as well. £1 a month extra for the new speeds.
What's the upload on the 500Mb, still 35Mb?
Well I'm on Vivid 350 and while my download doesn't seem to have changed I'm getting 35Mbps upload
Also verified by "uploading" something to "OneDrive"
How long before the 500 service is rolled out to everyone? Once the orders for the vvvvvip service have slowed down?
The download speed won't be changing for us 350mbps subscribers, the 500mbps tier is an additional tier above, the V'VIP package only.
For me, I'm not bothered about the extra 150mbps, I barely make use of 350 as it is.
Same here, although I had to reboot my SH3 and then also change my QoS settings in the 3rd party router to make it work!
I'm glad they've upped the upload. Not that I use it much but when I stream stuff from Plex at least I know I'll have more bandwidth. I'd rather sacrifice some download to increase the download:upload ratio.
My download has actually increased slightly. Not to 500, but instead of the modem syncing at about 370, it's now just over 400.
500Mb would only be appealing to me if it came with 50Mb upload, as it's the greater upload I need.
Man, you guys are spoiled. "WAAAA I want 50Mb upload"
We're finally getting dragged into the 21st century soon. bring on the V.VIP.
Switched to the vvip bundle this morning. I must have been the first as I was put on hold constantly as she checked over and over with her manager
