Yeah, but see how the ping has increased. Also, it's after 6pm, when a lot of internet users get online after getting home from work .. plus most ISP's are capping speeds after 6pm to "protect their users" (translation: they don't want to invest in better infrastructure ;) )

Virgin have a lot of over subscribed UBR's (the network areas) and that affects speeds, but they are migrating the 10meg and 20meg users will be ported over to the DOCSIS 3 network but will be running DOCSIS 2.

I think they will need a new ambit 256 modem to get the benefit.
Go to www.virginmedia.com/swapmodem and you can order an Ambit

The DOCSIS3 is primarily for 50meg users but they will use the DOCSIS 3 network as opposed to DOCSIS 2.

This theoretically should open up more bandwidth and increase end user speeds.

If I go through our network I get 10mb down and 2mb up, if I go direct through the modem I am getting 49mb down and 15mb up, but that is using the VM secret speed test site that they use for the engineers to test the speed of installations. If I use speed test I get the same through the network and only 42mb down direct. Speedtest.netwill loose you aout 5-10% due to loads at times.
