For Virgin Media ontop of their budget to install a faster internet connection than 0.001MB. I'm sick of the money hungry companies, they are one of the richest companies in the world, maybe if they focus more on expanding their network rather than making new tivo boxes every week, I'll be happy
"The existing cable network was laid some years ago and it would now be prohibitively expensive ie more than £126,000.00 more than we would budget for the area, for us to excavate all the roads and pavements between our nearest network access point and your property to create the necessary network extension that would be required to provide you with service"
I've been at them for 3 months now with backing of a member of parliament and building company to expand the network along 1 road, which has now turned into the answer ' NO '.
The area I live in only has ADSL with a poor poor speed, the exchange is in the middle of the town, we're at the end of the town, verging into the other city. Down 1 road they get 100mbps, around 1mi along the road (according to their measurements), we get 0.001, with an estimated of 2MB, which is wrong!
How can they justify a budget of that, and even offer for me to pay the outstanding balance if I want the whole area to get better broadband.
Heck, we can't even watch most TV around here as it relies on a net connection :s.
After ass kissing, and a long chat 20 minutes ago, we should now have 40mbps before the new year! GET IN
, so happy right now, it's unbelievable. The 4 days of downloading a 400mb file are long gone soon
. I've been having to use my parents connection who're nearly 60 as they have 100mb lol.
GO BT YOU RULE!
