plus try another server you might get better speeds.. like sweeden or somewhere different with better uploads
wish i was on the 10mb,i'm on the 20mb as it was the only package that was unlimited usage.according to the phone number check the most i can get is 6mb anyway,sky reckon 4mb with them.it is wireless but i get about 5.5mb when using ethernet so hardly a difference wireless anyway.this is from master bt socket with i-plate.wish virgin would extend their cable another 50ft onto my road and from sweden at least it's consistent

ouch! so why dont you downgrade to the 10? both have caps. the 10mbit has a 7GB cap and no upload cap and 10mbit i forget..

Virgin Media Broadband:Traffic management - & Traffic management has the cap limits.

but since you dont recieve 20 why not drop to the 10?

i dont know if i will recieve 50 but am happy with the 20 and my bt line wont give me more then 11mbit and at 11mbit it drops like a yoyo so a comfortable 8mbit is ok and works properly compared to the full 20mbit anytime mninus getting capped all the time for 5 hours :@

5mbit is a good speed though back at home i am on 2 i only have this virgin media for 20 days
if you change with virgin you have to have another 12 months from when you change and i reckon i'm off to o2 when my contracts up cos i've got o2 mobile so it's about 8 a month for an o2 customer.
