Virgin Media boosts broadband for free... again

Virgin Media today announced another free upgrade for its fibre optic broadband customers, injecting an ‘adrenaline shot’ of performance to boost upload speeds which will enable Virgin Media customers to share large files such as photos and videos at an even faster rate. The upgrade has started to roll out and will automatically be applied to customers across the country on its up to 10Mb, up to 20Mb and up to 50Mb services. Unlike some of its competitors’ ‘free’ upgrades, customers will be able to take advantage of these new upload speeds as soon as their area is enabled, without the need to sign up or re-contract.

Powered by Virgin Media’s unique next generation broadband network, increased upload speeds will enable customers to upload video to sites such as YouTube or Facebook in ultra-quick time or send files more swiftly to online backup services such as free Virgin Media’s VStuff service. Faster upload speeds also allow customers do more at once, such as hosting larger online multiplayer games on popular games consoles, as well as provide greater capacity for family members to send, share, poke and tweet at the same time with minimal delay.

why don't you read whats been written instead of talking rubbish.
It was only announced today and the upgrade is to upload speeds not downloads.

Link for the lazy folk who didn't read it in the OP.

My upload is 1.5mb already so when its been done ill be able to upload faster than I would be able to download on BT's network. Crazyyyyy

They are adding a new 'traffic management system at peak times' for peeps like me on 50mb but even when it kicks in the new speed would be 1.75mb which is all good if you ask me.

As long as they dont mess around with my download, then its all good.
