Pretty sure Google's (and whomever elses) 1 Gbps service is faster than  Virgin's 0.152 Gbps.

Heck my local ISP offers 250 Mbps.

I'm just sitting here with AT&T DSL at 6mps so yea, USA USA usa

Damn, apparently it is also frowned upon if you watch porn while on a Virgin Atantic flight...

While I like my 50 Mbps connection just fine, I could go as high as 500 if I wanted to shell out $300 a month. Of course, it's Fios, so I still wouldn't be able to watch Netflix without buffering.

It's Virgin Media.  That's up to 152Mbp/s, it could be less.  Substantially less (it probably is).

This is a company who will happily triple bill AND were busy upgrading peoples connection despite using a set-top box as a modem that couldn't actually deal with it.

Where I am we get 1.2Mbp DSL and have to suck it up because only Centurylink services the area.

I upgraded from 2.5 M/s DSL to a much better 20 M/s and it was worth every penny - especially when you consider that I actually pay the same price and simply switched companies. My old company had promised for a year that fiber optic was coming to my area "within 3 months", and wouldn't even say if my house would actually be within the small zone that is offered service.

The monopolies in the US for internet and cellphone service are holding this country back.

Yeah, that is just in the headline here, not the linked article, it is the fastest consumer grade (i.e. not particularly expensive) internet connection in the UK currently I think (apart from a few experimental rollouts), but no idea why anyone would think that is the fastest in the world.

The porn filter is mandated by the British government.  Please just ignore all of the state censorship potential, along with the actual surveillance, and think of the children...  No, don't think of them like that, you pervert...  Okay thoughtcrime has been detected...

That's the same situation I'm stuck in.  AT&T at 1.2M with zero chance of an upgrade in the reasonable future.  Or a crappy local cable company that charges even more money than AT&T.  For the same speeds.

no matter how fast or slow the internet is, it still takes me the same amount of time to fap. Unless I'm crying while looking at pictures of octogenarians dressed in leather giving oral to goats, then i tend to go a whole lot faster!
