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
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.
