What's the point of things like this when most of England are still stuck with <10mb connections? I live in a city with a population of around 200k and around about a mile away from my exchange and I can only get an 8mb connection.

Theres absolutely no use for this. Its illegal to download music and movies anyway. I have 120MB/s internet and I have never seen anything go faster than 22MB/s too.

Same here 120 from virgin, but to be honest I dont really need it, though they upgraded me for free so cant really complain.

Just because you have 120 mb/s internet speed doesnt mean your download speed will be 120 mb/s.

That would put me over my data cap in 2 seconds lol.
gizmig  +   744d ago
That's what I am thinking. Is there any unlimited plan for this?

I wish TWC would up their connection. The fact that the US has such horrible internet infrastructure when they are the inventors is quite sad. Last I checked the US is 8th in the world for internet speeds.
