Virgin broadband has been pretty good up to now. Hope it continues.

Can't get it round here, wonder if they'll widen their area if the merger happens.

Oh I know Keith, no chance in this coastal village of being in the 21st century with fibre broadband.

It's strange actually Joan. My cable company was originally based in your neck of the woods before it became part of NTL and then Virgin.

So far so good here, eagerly awaiting the boost to 120mb.

Really hope this takeover makes a change for the good, not the worse.

You should take a little vacation down to Australia. You can use the internet for a week, and when you go back to your home internet connection, it will feel just like fibre

Hell... I can't even get a fixed line

Using my phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot with a massive 3GB data allowance :/

When the networks not congested.. 10-12 meg. When everyone else in the area is on the internet at the same time, 2-3 meg.
