    mine just let me connect to all the sites i couldnt previously, unless using opera, good tip is if your internet is running slow of any reason, bust out opera and turn on turbo mode, if there us a webpage there it will load it

    Just about back for me.

    Also my dad received an email announcing the doubling of speed, which was shortly followed by an apology "oh we're sorry, no, not for you where you are"

    Had VM installed in my new flat today and was getting pissed off at all the constant drop outs all day. Knowing its not just me makes me feel much better. Sorry. :)

    Thought it was weird that I wasn't logged in to Live earlier. Given that Virgin are relatively expensive, it's not really acceptable for this to happen if it really is borked traffic shaping. Problems outside their control are fair enough.

    Been proper dodge for me recently, thought it was just the ole Superhub up to its usual tricks though. My favourite was last Tuesday night when I was launching a six-figure project from home, and the internet went down at 12:30am after I'd spent 3 hours and managed to get to 1790/1800 items live... tits.

    Our connection drops at least once an evening which is pretty annoying.

    Depends which way you look at it. I've either got an amazing 30mbit line or a shit 50mbit line.

    Except I'm paying for the latter.

    I must be one of the few people that have never had any real problems, other that the not so superhub it it all good. I just put that in modem mode now and use my old router and all my problems I first had with drop outs etc vanished.

    I have only lost connection a couple of times due to network outages and pretty much get the full speed on speedtests all the time..

    I bet it will be a load of shite tomorrow now I have said this :-(

    I think it's me and some ropey dns settings I put into my router.

    It's usually solid as a rock.

    I'm losing connection for about a minute every 20-30 minutes but I was fiddling with stuff earlier so I'm just troubleshooting.

    The only think I had that made my superhub drop out was my phone, whenever I came in it used to make the network totally hang while it obtained an IP. never found out why.. very odd.

    My internet drops almost every other day. Really, really fucking frustrating especially when it happens at night when you can't call anyone.

    The other problem I have is that my internet speed seems to degrade over time. It's visibly noticeable, to the point where refreshing EG can take up to a minute. I then end up making a call to the tech team, they "change some settings" on their end, and bam, my speed goes back to normal.

    Then it all starts to degrade again over the next few weeks. Smells of something deliberate on their end.

    Also, my set-top box is infuriatingly unresponsive to remote control inputs. Doesn't respond to you pressing a btton, so you press it again. And again. Ten seconds later, your channel browsing page jumps by five pages as the rubber band finally snaps back into position and the box finally executes all the inputs at once.

    For 70 a month, I expect a lot more.
