    Good to hear it... the broadband industry is a mess in the UK.

    I'm currently paying £25 for 4MB BB with Virgin, yet it goes down to 2MB for 5 hours if I download over 750MB between 4 PM-12 AM, happening again if I go over 750MB when the 5 hours are up if it's not past 12 AM.

    Your lucky. I'm on 2mb and it drops down to 526k. A quarter of the advertised speed.

    Apparently if you are not recieving the speed you signed up for, if you are in a contract you may have good cause to get released from the contract. I'm checking out money saving expert to see if he has latched onto it yet
