I'm with Virgin but recently my connection speed has taken a massive dive from 120mb to 30-40mb and worst in peak times.
According to them i live in an oversubscribed area and for them to update will taken until September! Joke!

Who's the best to go for please?

TBH its kind of luck of the draw these days, especially with BT's very variable backend routing.

Depends where you live mate, I've been on Virgin since NTL days & have gamed hard on it. Always used to get accused of Rate hacking & on BF2 my ping was always single figures. :cool:

I have Virgin and game quite happily.
Very low latency and the worst I see on speed test is normally 90Mb (125 Mb package)

I will admit that I live in a crap hole area where most residents probably watch Jeremy Kyle and their concept of internet is using their Blackberry on facebook so there isn't a huge subscriber issue.
