If are self employed or registered with COMPANIES HOUSE at your home address you can have this at house too.

Just out of my contract with VM for which I was paying £42.95 for 100Mbps so I personally this it’s a great deals, after matching with few comparison websites.

Only down side is 24 months contract rather 12 months.

Had a look at this service a few months ago and the reviews were shocking so I gave it a body swerve.

As long as your area is not suffering from over subscription, this will be good.

I'd expect a symmetric service for business.
I have 100mbps down and up on my VB connection.

What package is that and can you still get it? I want a business account and upload speed is very important to me as I have to upload a lot of data to remote servers.

My setup is very specific to my location as it's radio based and caters for a very small number of users.
I'm a home user but my ISP nevertheless provisions my service through a Virgin Media Business connection and by default it is symmetric.
It’s actually £38.40. These prices don’t include VAT
I’m paying £37 per month for phone (unplugged) and 200Mb BB, so this is a better deal for me.

Shame about the upload, I currently have 12.
You will never get the 350mb....I was on 50 mb with virgin last year...on renewal they offered me 100 mb for £23 so I took it last month....I am not getting even the 50mb I used to have...40mb at best

Agree but it’s the ‘Business Service’ that was hopeless. Read the reviews.

It deal is literally called "voom fibre".

Yeah, the upload speeds are bad to be fair, but I've never needed big upload speeds though so it has never effected me.

Upload speeds don't matter until they do. Perhaps for twitch streaming, perhaps to send that file for work, perhaps to back up your computer without tanking a simultaneous netflix stream.
The router they give you is pretty crap, and might cause issues with your VOIP based on experience.

We have this but only as a back up to our City fibre which is far superior at 400up/down.

Lastly their customer support sucks, they don't get it why your pissed when you have no Internet for days with out updates.
7Mbps upload is laughable!

Hmmmm sky and talk talks Ultra Fiber Optic 1000mb just a tad faster

I agree and virgin market only download. It's hard to get reliable stats on upload speeds especially as the home packages recently changed (no vivid 200 gamer anymore). 100 mbps down is PLENTY for me but 7mbps up is rubbish. Max seems to be 20mbps but only without traffic shaping in their most expensive 350mbps package.
I would stay well clear out of business connection at home, i had gave them a try, shocking service and huge amount of throttle after 6pm.
Does not worth it believe me.
Now went for vm 350 home connection, it is excluded from throttling, and upload is 20mb as well. Paying around £42 for 18 months contract.
Using it for business and home in evening so all is good. But if you have city fibre or anything better then go for those, but if your area does not have any of those like mine then go for home fibre 350. (My current speed is around 400mbps download and 21mbps upload)
Hope it helps some one.
Upload speed is shameful.
I am on bt/plusnet fibre and have 20mbps upload. Why do I need high upload speeds..? I have smart doorbell n cameras which upload footage on cloud all the time. So having such a low upload is a big no for me..
I can barely stream on evenings and I'm on 100mbit, will have to cancel again. I'll probay stay..

Virgin Media has nothing to do with exchange distance, you aren't even connected to an exchange. You're thinking of DSL connections.

On cable distance is irrelevant, but there is much greater chance of bandwidth contention at the CMTS. It's a very common problem that causes reduced speeds particularly at peak hours.

I'm on 200Mbps and get near 220 most days.

No, it's coaxial cable via DOCSIS.

Yeah because that's widely available...

Its only available in 5 mile area in York.
How on god's great earth can you justify advertising as a business broadband product and not include a basic features of a static IP ffs!

Are you trolling? This deal is for a docsis service provided over coaxial cable to the prem not fibre!

Okay now I know you're trolling! This deal is not for fibre to the prem. Please do not advise that it is.

Maybe you should do some research and if you have this service maybe look at the junction box and see the copper in situ and then come back and apologise!

If you genuinely believe this fibre business and you were told this by a sales rep then I advise you speak to trading standards.

I left after 12 months and over thirty engineer visits. Just couldn't get the dam thing stable in any way. Power levels were all over the place.

People pirating the cable with boxes were introducing too much noise.
Too much power at the tap point.
Upstream attenuation issues.
Over utilisation issues.
Core network routing issues.

Honestly the list is endless in my specific scenario but your mileage will vary immensely.

Our street upgraded to fibre optic cables two year ago so we are getting 350Mbps via fibre optic cable. Places still not upgrade they will be using Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification over coaxial cable which I am sure will be phasing out soon.
