Thread: Virgin Media - all about the Virgin Internet service

    Exclamation Virgin Media - all about the Virgin Internet service

    Here's a link to an article explaining that Virgin Media makes more than 50% of it's income from the fees users pay for their cable access.

    It also explains one user's (Ralph 5) observation that Virgin DELIBERATELY restrict the speed of your link during PEAK periods (early evening) such that you are NOT able to watch films via the cable service. You are forced to upgrade to something that is not "traffic shaped" for more money, of course, in order to use your cable service the way Virgin advertise it. To be fair to them, it is all in the Terms of Use, deep inside the pages which you MUST read. Not terribly customer centric. After the peak period, it becomes unrestricted again.
