VM's only happy customer?

Every time there's a VM story, you get loads of people complaining. Maybe it's different around the country, but up here in Edinburgh, I get my full 20Mb speed all the time, unless I've hit the limit which is VERY rare, even though I download pretty much all the TV I watch from Usenet, and in 6 years my connection has gone down a grand total of twice. Both times I called and it was back in an hour.

Not all of Edinburgh affected

Had no problems at all, although I did notice the Online light on my V box flashing. Everything was still working OK though.

Apparently I'm one of the few who hasn't noticed any drop in service from blueyonder to Virgin. Lucky me! I still hate Branson, though.

Wii shortage costs Nintendo dear, analyst claims


Mark - eh?

Made it a best seller, by not selling many? How does that work?

By that logic, my novel is the best-selling book ever, because I've never sold a single copy!
