    What is your speed? BBC has a line test which you can run to see what streaming speeds you get. Also try some of the other testers.

    The one about the water tower in the hospital grounds, great programe, you just wonder WHY, they wasted so much cash on a bland interior.

    I had them at uni (the cable package) years ago and it was shocking but I put that down to being in a student area… I can’t imagine more than 30 people on the exchange at this spot and I can bet only a few of those are on at any one time… makes you wonder how they can setup such a shit service

    alexx, some fantastic engineering work, lots of skilled builders etc, and good continuity.

    The interior is a lot better than at the begining 🙂

    Ooo into the last 10 minutes now! such a huge place – love it – I wonder why they didn’t separate the bottom half and sell it to recoup some costs. Seems he’s done pretty well developing considering he looked pretty poor at putting a sofa together.

    Not seen the interior yet – but not holding out now 😀

    Been with virgin media 12 yrs, tried to get through tonight after several over attempts thwarted by hidden numbers and conveluted ivrs.

    Told by tech nothing they could do, will complain in writing and claim back costs/ charges.

    Very disappointed.

    Ps there Twitter is lit up with complaints.

    Does anyone else have issues with virgin media broadband (adsl not cable) and streaming content like 4od… it absolutely hates 4od on my connection.. maybe every 2 minutes it rebuffers… similar on bbc but not as bad. I know the lines good as Zen had faultless internet.. grr
