    OFFICIAL Virgin 50MB Broadband Speedtest here !!!!

    Speedtest.net is unreliable now....... or so i was told by the virgin engineer.

    Virgin Engineers use this for actual Speed Testing for Virgin Networks :

    http://80.3.144.194/speedtest/login.php

    User ID is : virgin
    Password is : wolverhampton

    On next page Select 'DUDLEY'

    Change Size drop-down to '100MB'

    Select ' Start Test'

    Note: this is for 50Mb so may not be accurate for others speeds but bound to be more accurate than anything else on the net.

    Also try the File Downloads at the bottom of the page and calculate speeds yourself !!

    *** NOTE : Make sure all peer-to-peer programs and anything else that hogs your internet connection are also turned off ***

    Engineer told me ALL 50Mb BB customers are supposed to have access to it........... to confirm they are getting a decent speed out of it.... :thumbsup:

    I got about 9.6 Mbps which is what I should be getting

    ill check mine later

    usually when people get under 10 meg its because they are using wireless, … usually when people get under 10 meg its because they are using wireless, try using a LAN cabledirect



    my laptop is wired to the ethernet is that is what you mean, if im getting 10meg is it worth me going for 50 meg, i know im in a 50 meg area (sept tho)

    using the netgear router virgin supply the white one

    I'm on 10MB and I'm connected straight to the modem and this is the best it's been in weeks

    later on it can be down to around 25k

    When I have time I'll need to get them out

    Yeah, something is very wrong with that!

    I was getting 9.94Mbps on my old 10Mb connection

    whatever that means? :? (think im using 10mb) - im 1 mile from from the VM head office (well, n.east based anyhoo!)

    will try this once im finished downloading stuff frm iplayer

    simple, people on 10mb virgin line should be getting 1.2MB/sec (1200kbs kilobytes / sec)

    People on 20mb should get 2.4MB/sec )2400kbs kilobytes / sec)


    50MB people should be getting near 6.0MB/sec (6000kbs / kilobytes / sec)

    It means your connection is at 7.7Mb which isn't too great for fibre optic (maybe you have Windows Update running or something like that?). Distance isn't a big fact with fibre optic, 1 mile away, 10 miles away... same thing.

    that means nothing
    a customer of mine is 1 mile from BT and Virgin offices and a telephone exchange but still cant get a decent speed

    Yes it does ....as Google is now in partnership with Virgin Media........:roll:

    It's a legitimate website that i was given from the Virgin Engineer that installed my 50MB BB so i could test it..........:thumbsup:

    Just goes to show the ahem 'Up To....' bit in the contract :whistling:

    Will try at a quieter time. Also remember the 'bottle neck' factor in the cab. More people hitting your cabinet in the road the more speed will go down. Knowing my street all the little buggas are running limewire, frostwire or utorrent all day/night lol ;-)

    Lol password has changed!

    I just can not understand why these testers do not work as i dl'd a file from some university at 50megs!!!
