      I feel like crying....
      I'm lucky if I get more than 12Mbps Download speed on a good day.
      I used to be with Virgin but having to go back to getting my broadband over the phone line is the price of moving to a rural area.

      I have noticed myself that I don't always get close to speeds I should when using speedtest.net not sure if it's Virgin Media themselves or maybe something in the area. What speed are you on for your internet Jay?

      That's not good at all. I would contact them and let them know about your speed problems. May be something they need to do from there end to fix the issue :)

      I also got a speed boost, they always do it. I really like the speed and ping I get from them :)
