      And Is The 16meg Better Than Virgins 20
      What speed were you told you would get? You should know that you will only get 16Mb if you are reasonably close to your telephone exchange, with an attenuation of under 30dbs.

      16Mb is obviously not faster than 20Mb, but you will not be throttled, no matter how much you download.

      If you are that close to the exchange you should get 16 Mb or better. Post your stats and let us have a look at them, you may be able to improve.
