Virgin Medias upload speeds are a total joke. 152Mb download and .. 12Mb upload. And the ratio is just getting worse. This site says there are rumors that this year Virgin Media will launch 300Mb down speeds but that package will only come with a pitiful 15Mb upload.
Completely ridiculous. I can literally get 20Mb upload today from BT on their 70Mb plan. Almost double what I get on VM's 152Mb plan and still 5Mb more than this supposed 300Mb plan. I understand that Virgin Media are at the mercy of the DOCSIS standard but in America their upload and download speeds on DOCSIS providers are much more in tune. We are looking at 1/20th ratio for Upload to Download (300Mb/15Mb) and on many american DOCSIS companies the ratio is a much more palatable 1/4th (100Mb/25Mb - 200Mb/50Mb etc)
Virgin need to get their ass in gear and start investing in their upstream infrastructure as I really couldn't give a rats ass about the download speed at this point. 50Mb was enough download for me. 100Mb was nice, 120Mb was nice but unnecessary, now we're at 152Mb and the upload to download ratio just keeps getting worse. It used to be 1/10th then 1/12 now it's 1/13 and the gap keeps growing.
