I use Virgin Media over cable, and have the 20 Mb service, and have 
found it flawless.  I usually get the full speed, especially when 
working with fast servers.  One big plus is that at 
mirrors.virginmedia.com they mirror
Tucows Mac   	
Fedora Linux   	
Tucows PDA   	
Debian Linux   	
Ubuntu linux   	
Tucows Games   	
Tucows Linux   	
Ubuntu linux   	
Slackware Linux   	
Tucows Themes   	

and so I have gotten great speeds downloading different distros, as this 
server is fairly local.  Also my Ubuntu updates come from the 
virginmedia server, and these are very quick too.

People only usually make noise when a service is bad, so often what your 
"hear" isn't always a true reflection.
