Oddly, Calum and I are both on Virginmedia cable, but my speed test showed my ISP as "Telewest Broadband", a name which has been obsolete for quite a while, Feb 2007 to be exact.
Were you with Telewest before the changeover?  Just curious, that may explain it but I'm not sure how Virgin Media's merges with NTL and Telewest affected their network structure so it may have nothing to do with it.

      My speeds are fine, no one in the household does anything intensive with it.. The only time it gets to be a problem is when my brother starts downloading games through steam and playing with his friend at the same time..

      Then everything comes to a crawl and I get pissed off.  ;D

      At least the school wireless has some decent speeds.

      My modem syncs at 3mb/640kb.  Fastest I can get in my apartment.

      speed fluctuates between 10mb/s up to even 50mb/s. Such is the nature of Cable internet (as well as the low upload speed)
      I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

        This is my internet connection speed, although in my country I could have more (a lot more speed). But it would be too expensive for me.
        Portugal is currently ranked 14th position in the world's average internet speed connection (http://www.netindex.com/download/allcountries/).
        Not bad for a small country like ours.

        Using a cron job to test my broadband speed every 30 mins from http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html I see that my broadband speed didn't drop below 12Mb/s on Saturday

        NB: speeds listed in megabytes not megabits. Assuming a couple of stop bits with every byte then I guess you need to multiply by 10 to convert.
