I think it all depends on how many people you're connected to and what 
you're uploading (and also on Virgin they do have some policy where they 
limit the speed if you go over a certain amount during peak time).

When I was on Telewest (now Virgin) on 2Mbit I was getting 220K/sec or 
there abouts.
