50 megs of pure speed

Finally the Virgin promise comes true. Due to being in one of the areas that Virgin have provided 50MB cable to I had my visit from the engineer to deliver the funky new cable model and wireless router and usb wireless card that make up the package.

After some initial diffs getting the new modem activated – the service is running and initial adhoc speed trials show an increase in speed that is refreshing.

I’ll report back on the service and its performance over the next few weeks but as the ad says

“Man – thats hot”
