It might if you go for the business service with fixed IP address - either single or routed subnet. Performance is very variable, as has been reported by a few others here. I was immune to it for ages and now have been affected. I am currently working with a senior engineer in VMB to run tests to help them. They are getting closer to getting to the cause of the issue.

It's getting a lot of attention in VMB with a dedicated team to work on it, so hopefully they will have a solution soon. This only affects downstream performance, never upstream.

If you don't need a fixed IP address and take any the business service with a dynamic address the service is great, provided your area is good. Which hopefully it will be given it's new! You've probably got much better contacts than me and will know about the issue, but if not, happy to keep you posted on the fix.

I saw mention of a login issue with the Hitron - never suffered that myself. I did with the old SH1 based business service where the SH1 suffered a memory leak which would use the Web interface to hang but the Hitron has been solid for me.

Re: It's nearly here!

Toby has arrived and is awaiting the last couple of metres of duct under block paving to connect to the cabinet.

The cab has a viable duct path back to the VM network now. Awaiting installation of coax.

Re: It's nearly here!

Dig in the street as a whole completed yesterday. Been informed that all should be live by the end of the month.

Am looking into something else as there're a few interesting things going on. Leeds have certainly cut the red tape!

Re: It's nearly here!

Cables deployed to a bunch of cabinets in the area. Commissioning imminent.

This has been really instructive.

Re: It's nearly here!

Just thought I'd drop by to say that I know some stuff also. I won't claim that it has anything to do with this, or even to do with anything else of interest to anyone here. It doesn't even have anything to do with Virgin Media. Nor can I claim that it has anything to do with any other provider, or even broadband at all. But anyway, it's a secret, so I can't talk about it. Have a nice day

That other thing was a, erm, total and utter mess up. VM's contractors just put a cabinet, 4 road crossings and about 50 metres of track into pavements and roads that are private and they had no right to touch.

Ooops.

Re: It's nearly here!

Unusual for VM to not make sure wayleave is in place. Could be a big compo bill.

Re: It's nearly here!

Won't be compo but they are going to have to do full-width reinstatement if they can't cut a deal with the council and developer.

Whatever, whichever they end up doing it is going to cost them.

Re: It's nearly here!

Released for service. Only for up to 200 due to issues at hubsite.

Regarding the earlier point some confusion reigned along with them getting bad information.
