I opted for up to 100, and it was about 105 when I last checked, it seems pretty good so far :-)

Installation guys were brilliant too, couple of old boys, perfect

When Sky or EE try and get me to switch broadband I tell them we have virgin and they give up. It’s very, very fast here.

When it's good, it's very good. But when it's bad...

OK, ours does crash from time-to-time and, for some ridiculous reason, we often end up signing in to our e-mail two or three times before it works. Might start to look around for something a bit cheaper as we have a broadband, TV and phone package which could be a bit less expensive.

Touch wood we haven't had a 'bad' spell for a while. Exactly a year ago (according to my journal) I phoned them and told them I was looking at cheaper options, and they changed my package to a faster yet cheaper one. I have a bit of brand loyalty as a result.

Just ran the Which broadband speed test. (https://broadbandtest.which.co.uk)

108.0 Mbps download. Hard to argue with.

Just got 116.0 Mbps download (10.2 upload) with the Which test. I had no broadband for four or five hours on Thursday due to a local fault, but that sort of thing's rare - it's usually pretty reliable. I would like to get the cost down a bit though. Might have to give them a call.

I do and yes as long as you're on their fibre network.

Got something to say?

Does anybody have virgin broadband?

Do they get anywhere close to their advertised up to speeds? ...
